  • In 4th Incident, the main character writing lines on the breasts of his lover. Few minutes later, he cut one breast.

Violence & Gore

  • A boy cuts off a ducklings leg with a pair of scissors and watches it struggle to swim. Though it's very quick and bloodless it's incredibly disturbing.
  • Jack bashes a woman's head with a car jack.
  • A woman is choked repeatedly and her body is dragged behind a van, leaving a trail of blood.
  • A man shoots two boys with a hunting rifle, forces their mother to feed them pie and then shoots the mother. Afterwards, he creates a sculpture out of one of the boys by surgically manipulating his facial structure into a grotesque smile. Probably the film's most graphic and harrowing sequence.
  • A man verbally abuses a woman, then proceeds to tie her up and cut off her breasts. The camera cuts away rather quickly, but still incredibly graphic. The man later fashions a wallet out of one of her breasts and pins the other one on the windshield of a police car.

  • A man ties down and lines up a group of people in an effort to execute all of them with a single bullet from a rifle.
  • A man is stabbed through the chin with a hunting knife.
  • A police officer is shot off-screen.
  • A man methodically lines up crow carcasses. It does not show him hunting them.
  • The film includes several minutes of extremely harrowing and graphic stock footage of concentration camps, arguably one of the most disturbing sequences of the film due to the real nature of the footage.
