JG Ballard: Not for kids!

Unless you enjoy discussing Thatcherism with your family! Top-notch entertainment, if you like disturbing art-house satire. Funny, disjointed, and rather nihilistic, everyone knows this is a movie for the right set of adults. I don't think a teen looking for titillation would even enjoy it!

Sex Drugs and Video Tapes

This is really just a psychedelic porn movie. While there isn't much cursing, there are TONS of other activities from orgies to drugs to more sex, to nakedness to mutilation (human and animal). Partly artistic, make sure your kids are nowhere around if you decide to watch this one.

Was bound to get a bad rating on here. Hardly any characters are likeable or worthy of sympathy, but then again they're not meant to be. It's a Ballard adaptation after all. So expect a lot of pessimism and plenty of nihilistic behavior. Would recommend to fans of arthouse/indie cinema and Kubrick.
