Nightwatch | 1998 | R | - 7.8.7

A law student gets embroiled in some nasty goings-on when he takes a job as a nightwatchman at the medical examiner's office. With Ewan McGregor and Patricia Arquette.

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Kissing. Sexual innuendo (mainly referring to necrophilia). A woman fondles a man under a table at a restaurant as he moans and groans. A brief glimpse of both male and female full frontal nudity, and a few shots of female bare buttocks (including one extended scene). Many shots, usually brief, of bare breasts.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A woman is stabbed repeatedly and viciously in two scenes; in one there is no blood and in the other there is a lot of blood dripping onto her feet. A man is shot three times with jerking and bloody bullet holes. A man hits another in the nose, a man is punched in the face and sides resulting in a bloody mouth and a bloody scab. A close-up of a drug addict shooting up into his neck. A woman bites a man's mouth leaving a bit of blood. A man cuts off his own thumb with blood dripping and leaving a bloody puddle and bloody stump. A man is hit in the back with a bat, and another in the head with blood splattering. A corpse with empty, bloody eye sockets, nose, mouth and hair with a bloody chunk taken out of the torso is seen a few times (but usually not the torso). Fetuses and body parts in jars, and covered cadavers are seen several times in a morgue. We also see bloody sheets and a gurney. A bloody knife is seen a few times, blood is seen in a syringe and some very bloody gloves. A huge bloody stain on a carpet with a bloody trail. We see bloody feet and bloody bare female buttocks and thighs. A name is written in blood. A man cuts out a corpse's eyes (not actually seen). There's blood on a temple, a bloody cut on an arm, blood on a shirt and hands. Threatening with guns and knives. Scuffles.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 21 F-words, a few anatomical references, many mild obscenities and scatological 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.
