Goodbye Lover | 1999 | R | - 7.6.10

Friends, family and lovers are tangled in a web of lust, greed and deception in this erotic thriller. With Patricia Arquette, Dermot Mulroney, Mary-Louise Parker, Ellen DeGeneres, Ray McKinnin, Don Johnson, Andre Gregory, Barry Newman and Vincent Gallo. [1:42]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Sexual innuendo (including some references to oral sex) and many kisses (most are passionate). A woman has a phone-sex conversation (she doesn't say anything explicit). A woman's panties fall around her ankles, a man licks her bare legs and we then see her thrusting on top of him (no nudity is evident). A man and woman move rhythmically and moan pleasurably (we see his bare chest and her bare back). We hear people having sex and see a woman's legs and head sticking up from behind a couch as she's thrusting (her partner isn't seen). We see a woman's bare bottom, and a man with his boxers around his ankles; we then hear them having intercourse and we briefly see her bare breast as she's lying in bed afterwards. A man and woman start untucking and unzipping clothing and caressing each other as they kiss passionately (only the side of her bare buttocks and legs are visible). A man feels a woman's breast underneath her dress and a woman briefly caresses a man's clothed knee and thigh. We see some leather S&M outfits hanging in a closet and several women in bras and panties, corsets and cleavage-revealing tops. We also see a man wearing a dress shirt only.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Someone is shot; we see lots of blood on the person's body and on a glass window as the person slides down. Someone is pushed off a balcony and falls into a pool; in a later scene, we see his corpse being pulled out of the bloody water. A person is stabbed in the back with a syringe. A man grabs a woman and tries to suffocate her; as she struggles to get away, she hits and breaks some mirrors. A man tied upside down by his feet is hit with a bat a few times; a woman's legs and feet are bound in one scene. A man trashes his office, a woman slaps a man and two people briefly scuffle. We see a few corpses and a few body bags (a charred hand is briefly seen before one of the bags is zipped); in one scene, an autopsy is being performed and when a man drills into the bloody corpse, blood splatters on another's face. Two motorcycle riders are bumped off the road by a car and we see them roll down a cliff. One instance of threatening with a gun.

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.
