A ghoulish, sadistically violent masterpiece will entice some, horrify others

The Hughes Brothers 2001 comic book (which in turn is also based off of the infamous real life murders and escapades of the London murderer Jack the Ripper) adaptation From Hell is one of the most beautifully atmospheric and gloriously gruesome main stream films that I have ever seen. And, despite being a mainstream film and being distributed by 20th Century Fox, the film never really stoops to the level of mainstream films of it's kind, because in nearly every frame, we see the images of two master directors at the top of there game, giving us a strategically placed artistic balance between wonderful Victorian London production value and extremely gory murder scenes. But, as you have already stated previously, this movie is Rated R (Really? Whatever for?), but honestly, I actually think that a NC-17 Rating would have been a lot more appropriate, but whatever: The viewers is constantly bombarded with some of the most sadistically violent, gruesome and gory images of murder, mutilation, dismemberment and other forms of murder in nearly every scene. Also, there is frequent strong sexual content with one very graphic sex scene, explicit nudity and the main theme that most of the main characters in the movie are of course, prostitutes. Also, there is explicit depictions of drug use in the form of opium, which also leads to many disturbing drug induced hallucinations. Finally, there is infrequent use of very strong profanity, including f--k, c-nt, sh-t, h-ll, d-mn and more. So, if you have a strong stomach and a clear mind of mainstream artistic entertainment, than check out this fantastic, but unfortunately almost completely forgotten ten year old movie masterpiece.
