HELMUT NEWTON: THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL is a documentary on the life and work of the fashion photographer.

Sex

Interviewees assert that Newton's work plays on issues of 'domination' and 'sexual power'. There is brief discussion of, and visual references to, bondage. On a shoot, Newton jokes about a male model getting 'a hard-on'.

Nudity

There is frequent full-frontal female nudity, as well as less frequent male genital nudity. The former is sometimes in a sexual context.

There is infrequent use of moderate bad language ('cock').
