#STARVECROW is a British drama in which a film-maker hijacks footage of other people's lives taken from mobile phones and CCTV.

Language

There are multiple uses of very strong language ('c**t'), several of which are aggressive and accompanied by threats of violence. There are also multiple uses of strong language ('f**k'). More moderate bad language includes 'bitch', 'wanker', 'shit' and 'bloody'.

Violence

There is a scene of strong sexual violence as a man records himself raping an unconscious woman on his mobile phone. There is sight of the woman's bare back and buttocks. There is no explicit detail but the assault is filmed from the attacker's point of view.

There is another scene in which a man pins a clothed woman to a bed, with an arm across her throat. Although the scene quickly cuts away to other images, the soundtrack of the woman struggling and being assaulted continues to play.

Other issues include strong verbal sex references and strong sex, with some sexualised nudity.

There is some hard drug use.

There is some violence, including a man being suffocated with a plastic mag.

There are also bloody images, including a man's bloodied body lying in a bath, with no clear injury detail, after he has asked someone to castrate him.
