Other: The protagonist is an alcoholic drug user, which is essential to the plot. He also smokes plenty of cigarettes. He is shown snorting cocaine, as well as other characters snorting cocaine and shooting up heroin.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: An accident is conveyed in a very vivid and realistic fashion. It may be intense and frightening for some audiences. There are also scenes of heavy drug use.
Sexual Content: One woman is seen fully nude frontal and behind. No frontal male nudity is shown, other than a shirtless torso. Male backsides are shown, including that of protagonist Whip. Sex is implied a few times, but never explicitly seen.
Coarse Language: The f-words and mf-words are used a number of times. Profanities, blasphemous phrases, and rough slang are used frequently, but the words tend to blend into the background and aren't used for shock; they flow with the story and their use makes sense.
Violence: The violence is minimal in the conventional sense, but blood is spilled in an accident. Dead bodies and injured survivors are shown. People scream in pain. The protagonist's eye is damaged and bloody and shown in close-up. The violence is more of that nature.

"Honey, could you hustle us up a couple of daiquiris and a cocktail weenie? On second thought, just bring the booze, I brought my own weenie. Oh, she's offended. And she should be. I'm a pig. And I hate me. That's what we have in common, Nurse Ratchet. We both hate me."
