Jason's Lyric | 1994 | R | - 6.9.6

Urban drama about two brothers and their relationship with their father. There's also a romantic subplot.

SEX/NUDITY 6 - There are three sex scenes, complete with groaning and thrashing about. A woman is shown topless and a man's naked derriere is exposed. There is an implied sex scene, during which sex takes place under a woman's skirt. There are lots of sexual innuendos, and references, mostly to oral sex. One disturbing scene in which it appears that a drunken character may be masturbating.

VIOLENCE/GORE 9 - A child shoots his father to stop him from attacking his mother. One scene in which a character gives himself a "jailhouse tattoo" -- carves the name of a woman on his forearm with a knife (bloody). Several fist fights in which faces are bloodied and characters spit up blood. Several people are shot to death. One character is chained up, beaten and tortured, then slashed with a chain saw (lots of blood).

LANGUAGE 6 - The F-word and various forms of it are used frequently. Also an assortment of scatological and anatomical terms.

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.
