It's implied a woman is sleeping with other men for money.

A few brief scenes involving prostitutes.

Bloody aftermaths of accidents; a man threatens to kill himself numerous times throughout the film, a very bloody (but brief) child birth, a crime scene in which a few dead bodies are shown with blood, a man hangs over a balcony impaled through the side of his abdomen; he is still alive, a character is viciously beaten with a baseball bat, we see him bloodied and convulsing a few times; it is implied that he'll live though. A few violent acts throughout.

5-6 uses of the F word and moderate to strong sexual references scattered throughout.

People are seen smoking cigarettes throughout the film. Paramedics are seen drinking alcohol while driving the ambulances. Alcoholic tendencies; a man in a nightclub overdoses on a drug; drugs/needles are administered to patients. A man is given a pill and he begins to hallucinate.

A rather eerie atmosphere throughout; a man sees/hallucinates ghosts, disorienting behavior from some characters.

OFFICIAL MPAA - Rated R for gritty violent content, drug use and language.

OFFICIAL BBFC - (18): strong medical detail, bloody injury.
