Playing God | 1997 | R | - 3.8.8

David Duchovny is a former medical doctor who starts acting as a doctor for Timothy Hutton's criminal organization.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Scantily clad women dance on screen and live in a club. We can see a woman's breast through her transparent bra. Kissing, sexual innuendo.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - People are shot throughout (sometimes with blood on their chests and torsos). A man puts his finger in a bloody wound. A few scenes of people with bloody hands and clothes. A few scenes of people and corpses covered in blood. Blood spurts during a surgery, when a man's throat is slit, and blood splatters against a man's face, glass and furniture. A bloody hole is seen in a man's abdomen. A man is smothered and then shot. A man roughs up a woman. A woman has bloody, scraped face and lips. A man is hit by a car (with blood at his temple and in his mouth). A very bloody woman after a gunshot. Threatening with guns. Reckless driving, chases, people throw each other around, scuffles, a couple of face punches.

LANGUAGE 8 - About 66 F-words, some scatological and anatomical references and some mild obscenities.

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.
