BEYOND CLUELESS is a documentary about the passage of American teenagers through high school and beyond, as experienced by the characters in a large number of US teen movies dating from the mid 1990s to the early 2000s.

Sex

Two sequences, both comprising a montage of clips from several films, include strong sex. The first compilation comprises young couples engaged in sexual activity. In addition to kissing and embracing, there is thrusting and similar mechanical action, together with ecstatic expressions on faces. There is also a fleeting glimpse of female pubic hair and sight of a man kissing a woman's nipple. The second compilation of clips comprises solitary young people, male and female, engaged in implied masturbation. There is the sight of a dildo, hands down the front of trousers, rapid arm movements, a cushion clamped over a fully dressed young man's crotch, and more expressions of ecstasy on faces.

Violence

Another compilation of clips includes strong and sometimes bloody violence. The clips include a youth being punched in the face, a male character being stabbed in the neck, and a bottle being smashed over a character's head. There are also several undetailed shootings. However, there is a spray of blood as a character shoots himself in the head, and in another clip, a character falls backwards in slow motion towards a blood-spattered urinal.

Language

There are around twenty uses of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker'). There is also mild bad language, including uses of 'ass', 'bullshit', 'crap', 'damn', 'God', 'hell' and 'Jesus'.

Drugs

There is a single scene of cocaine snorting and infrequent scenes of cannabis joint smoking.

Other issues include a single example of racist behaviour when a character says to a young black woman, "...because I don't like Negroids".
