Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil | 1997 | R | - 3.5.7

A reporter (John Cusack) investigates Southern culture in the midst of a murder trial.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references about female and male anatomy, transsexuals, homosexuality, incest). A nightclub scene with a transsexual performing and suggestive dancing. Cleavage revealing outfits. Kissing.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man threatens others with a broken bottle. Prints of blood on a floor. A corpse with some blood on its mouth and shirt. A man is shot a few times leaving some blood (this is seen a couple of times in flashbacks). A fight between two men (also seen a couple of times). We see blood on a corpse's face and back and this is seen a few times in flashbacks. A corpse is seen in a hallucination and it smiles and blood streams from its mouth.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 16 F-words, many mild obscenities, many scatological references, some anatomical references.

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.
