Clockers | 1995 | R | - 3.6.9

Spike Lee film about a dope pusher has an attack of conscience when his older brother confesses to a murder the younger brother may or may not have committed. With Harvey Keitel, John Turturro and Delroy Lindo.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - A man is forced to pull down his pants and we see his buttocks. Some sexual innuendo and references.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - A few fairly brutal fistfights (a gun is brandished about in one and a cop is hitting someone in another). Bloody corpses are seen in a graphic montage. A boy shoots a man in the chest and we see some blood. A couple of close-up shootings, with blood. A man is shown shooting another man in the head at point-blank range, while the victim begs for his life; there are a number of dead, bloody bodies in the scene. A dead body is shown in a pool of blood and we see bloody wounds in close-up, as well as brain matter oozing out the back of the head.

LANGUAGE 9 - 40+ F-words, 40+ scatological terms, many milder obscenities, many racial epithets.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
