What to watch out for

*
Messages:
The female lead is borderline psychotic in her vengefulness and outwardly racist -- a nightmare portrayal of a driven career woman as predator. There may be some kind of ironic statement intended in that the white American woman embodies the all-consuming, homicidal rage over which Arab and Muslim men are accused. She tries to attribute her pathololgies to an especially twisted take on the public mood on September 11, 2001. Ashade, who never wanted any trouble, is driven to violence by her, despite his attempts to resist. Ironically, both are supposed to come from very religious backgrounds. In the end the viewer's judgments are on trial here.

*
Violence:
A man threatens a woman with a knife, and people are cut both accidentally and on purpose. Explosions kill people and a dog is cruelly slain, both just barely offscreen.

*
Sex:
Mostly talk, but that includes when the manipulative antiheroine challenges Ashade to have sex with her (dropping her pants while she's at it).

*
Language:
The F-bomb dropped by an angry Ashade. The heroine disapproves of profanity, but uses the racist term "Jewboy" among others, and her rap-music TV show has as much obscene language as bling.

Consumerism:
Rap music and a fancy new SUV are part of the plot.
*
Drinking, drugs, & smoking:
The heroine smokes.
