Contains strong sex scenes, sadomasochistic sex and nudity

Many sex scenes and references, much decadance. Female breasts are shown; nudity in general. Most of the movie is based around sex of all kinds. 8/10

A man makes love to a woman, we see her breasts, both are nude in bed.

A man kisses another man and it is implied (not shown) the instigator gives the other man oral sex very briefly before they apparently have sex (also not shown.)

Several brief scenes of various sexual behaviour, including bondage, bisexuality, kissing, aggresive sex, nudity and burning with candle wax. Most of these are implied to be taking place under a drug or drink haze.

Male characters visit whorehouses and 'gentlemen's clubs' where some female nudity is shown and some sexual acts are briefly visible.

A man seduces a young girl and has sex with her mother while she is still hiding in the room.

Contains strong bloody violence

Some grotesque images involving a painting including writhing maggots in the canvas.

One of the sex scenes involves cutting...with blood shown.

It isn't directly shown but strongly suggested in 'memory flashbacks' that the main character was brutally beaten often by a relative. We see scars on the character's back.

One sex scene shows the dripping of hot candle wax onto skin.

A man is brutally stabbed several times. We see blood spatter, bloody clothes and the body.

A couple of attempted strangulation scenes.

A man creates a gas leak which results in a fire, in which a dying man is consumed.

Not much, if any.

Contains drug use

There are a couple of scenes where opium is smoked. It is implied that the main character does other drugs as the movie progresses.

Characters frequently drink and some are shown intoxicated.

Contains disturbing images and bloody horror

There are several scenes that some would consider to be frightening or intense.

Rated R for sexual content including nudity, violence and some drug use
