Sex & Nudity

  • A brief scene that takes place in a strip club. The strippers are seen wearing little more than pasties in the background, ONLY. (no nudity)
  • A woman tells her Husband that he has one hour to himself and then he is all her's, and he replies saying "I'll show you how that night was invented." Implying that they are planing to have sex.
  • Three men are Homosexual and describe various incidents, None are shown.
  • Willie O'Keefe tells Garrison he does not know anything cause he's never been f**ked in his behind. Meaning he does not know why they dislike Kennedy, This is mostly played for laughs.

Violence & Gore

  • The Zapruder film is shown a few times displaying a graphic and gory head wound of Kennedy. There is a brief depiction of murder.
  • Kennedy's autopsy is shown. In black and white a doctor starts to stick his finger into a bullet hole on Kennedy's back. Kennedy's graphic head wound that is being described in a voice over is only shown for a split second, but the entire autopsy is disturbing.
  • A man is found dead on his couch. This is not graphic at all but the apartment in which he is found is macabre and the seen may, because of this, be frightening.
  • A woman is thrown out of a car her face is bloody and bruised. This is at the beginning of the film and is not very graphic. We see the woman's face again later, though. This time there is much more blood, the face is bruised, and the woman is very pale.

Profanity

  • 56 uses of the "f" word, used as a sexual profanity a few times, and many other profanities are scattered throughout, including several religious profanities.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • There's brief scenes when we see Jim Garrison smoking and drinking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The opening scene has intense music as it details the 10 minutes leading up to Kennedy getting shot. When the shots occur the screen quickly drops black and three VERY loud shots occur. For younger viewers this could be very troublesome.
  • The film maintains a dark atmosphere throughout. It becomes progressively more intense from start to finish and the final scenes of Kennedy's death may be disturbing.
