Language

Occasional use of strong language ('f**k').

Infrequent moderate drugs references include sight of white powder on a table, a joint being passed between smokers, and references to using heroin. There is a scene of brief comic gore in which archive footage shows a man dressed as a surgeon operating on a body, with unrealistic blood spurting over the surgeon's clothes. In a film clip, there is an implied stabbing. Occasional references are made to the rise of HIV and AIDS during the 1980s.
