An intense masterpiece

Really one of my favorite films of all time. Violence 6/10. Mostly offscreen. Offscreen violence includes a dog beaten to death (body seen from far off), a child being shot dead, and other disturbing content, and death. The only violence onscreen is when a man is shot with a shotgun, but this is shown in a flash. Sex 4/10. A woman is forced to undress but no nudity is seen. She is in her underwear for most of the movie after this. Language is used pretty often with some of it being pretty strong.
