Krippendorf's Tribe | 1998 | PG-13 | - 4.2.3

A anthropologist's (Richard Dreyfuss) efforts to convince his peers he has discovered a new tribe of Aborigines gets him and his children into some strange goings-on.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - People are shown in native garb (loin cloths, etc.), several women are shown in cleavage revealing dresses and we see a woman's bra and cleavage. Sexual innuendo and discussions of primitive mating rituals. Discussions of a primitive circumcision ritual with an axe being swung at a boy's crotch. A child's drawing of a man's genitals. It is implied that a woman grabs a man's clothed crotch. A couple is shown in bed presumably after having had sex and a man grabs a woman's clothed breast. A man thrusts his pelvis at another man. A man is "inspired" when he sees a woman in native garb, but nothing happens.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - A monkey flatulates and a pig urinates on a person. A man eats a grub. A woman slaps a man in the face and a woman pushes on a man's primitive crotch cover; he reacts as if he's been hit.

LANGUAGE 3 - Several scatological and anatomical references, discussions of primitive mating rituals, and several mild obscentities.

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.
