SEX/NUDITY 6 - There's one brief scene of a frontally naked boy standing in a bathtub. A couple of pictures in a medical book of female and male sexual organs. There's one scene where a couple is making love on top of a balloon, with upper body nudity and passionate groping and kissing.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - An Eskimo boy is shown eating a seal's raw heart, after killing it. There's a scuffle between a boy and a girl, with some punching and shoving. A man hacks off the arm of one of two men who are found dead and frozen in the Arctic ice. Since the arm is frozen there's no blood. There are scenes of aerial bombing, with dead, bloody soldiers and burning buildings. Two people are drowned in frigid waters.

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.
