A few scenes include nudity.

One brief scene where a woman masturbates while crying.

A man smacks a woman's clothed buttocks.

There's a fairly explicit lesbian sex scene.

There is a car accident. Not graphic

A hitman shoots a person in the head. His hair is seen stiffened from the force of the bullet, and blood is shown on the wall. As the hitman tries to make it look like a suicide, he fails and ends up shooting someone else in the hip. He fights with this person, but then shoots them in the back twice -- no blood shown. He then shoots a witness (no blood shown).

2 uses of the 'f' word, and other cursing.


The film in general has a Hitchcock-ian sense of suspense, although more surreal.

The whole film is like a dream, presented in a theme such as neo-noir. It shows the dark side of Hollywood.

Rated R for violence, language and some strong sexuality
