SLC Punk! | 1999 | R | - 5.5.10

Matthew Lillard and Michael A. Goorjian are best friends and fellow anarchistic punk rock slackers living in Salt Lake City in 1985. Also with Annabeth Gish, Devon Sawa, Jennifer Lien, Christopher McDonald, Jason Segel, Summer Phoenix, James Duval, Til Schweiger, Adam Pascal, Chiara Barzini and Kevin Breznahan. [1:37]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Some sexual innuendo and several kisses. A man pushes a woman against a wall and they kiss passionately; we later see them moving rhythmically and moaning but still fully-clothed. We see a clothed woman thrusting on top of a man (his pants are around his knees and we see the side of his bare buttocks and thigh) and we briefly see a topless woman kissing and caressing a man (her bare back is visible, and we later see her holding a shirt in front of her breasts). We see a man in boxer shorts and a drawing of a topless woman. A man "moons" a few people (we only see the top part of his bare buttocks).

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - A man punches a mirror and his hand gets very bloody; we later see a bloodstained cloth wrapped around his hand and then see the very infected wound (half his hand is black and oozing green goo). Several group fights with lots of people punching, shoving, and beating each other with sticks. A man kicks and punches a man repeatedly (his face and mouth gets very bloody), a man slams someone's head into a wall, a man bites someone's leg and a man slaps another. We hear people struggling, then see several people restraining a man so he can receive an injection (we see the needle enter his skin). Lots of people shove each other while slam-dancing in a club. Some threatening with guns; a few people are shot at but never hit. A man shoots at a car and a man breaks many car windows with a baseball bat. A man throws something at a mirror and shatters it. Several scuffles, some involving police officers trying to arrest people. After two people take hallucinogens, they see a river of blood and a city being destroyed by an atomic bomb. A man tells another he killed two people and that he saw a family's body parts lying around after a plane crash. We see what are supposed to be the bloody tendons and muscles of a leg with white foam on it (it's not attached to a body, it's only supposed to represent someone's leg). We see a dead man and a sheet-covered corpse.

LANGUAGE 10 - About 115 F-words, lots of anatomical and scatological references, lots of mild obscenities, several insults and many profane finger gestures.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Drug use and addiction, religion, rebellion, punk rockers, anarchy, generational conflicts, relationships, politics, death of a loved one, being a non-conformist and being different.

MESSAGE - No matter how different you are, you're not immune to experiencing normal, everyday situations and feelings; even self-proclaimed non-conformists conform to something; sometimes your beliefs fail you and you're forced to change your ideology.

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.
