Some kissing.

The character of Kara often dresses in skimpy outfits. In one scene it is implied that she may be receiving oral sex from other character (You see a head pop up from her lap and the character leaves). Later she is pushed onto stage naked but nothing is seen except her bare back and shoulders.

Implied sex scene - implied in the way 40s noir movies implied sex scenes during the production code censorship era - couple kiss in bed and camera pans away, next scene shows couple in bed and girl is smoking a cigarette.

Brutal fighting and characters attacking one another; many punches thrown. (Some Blood)

A girl's dead body is shown at least twice. (nothing to bad)

One character gets shot in the head. Blood is shown spraying out of the back of they're head. (Breifly Bloody)

A character gets angry at another character and throws an object at a mirror, smashing it.

A character is stabbed in the shoulder. (briefly bloody)

Fuck-1 Shit-1 Motherfucker-1 but barely audible

A character is implied to be a "hash head". Some other drug referencing as well.

A character smokes marijuana at least once.

The whole film revolves around heroin dealing (hence the name "Brick").

A good amount of cigarette smoking by teenagers.

Some very intense scenes involving serious tensions between characters. The film's climax (the party turning violent and insane) is pretty intense.
