Incredible movie, NOT for kids. (Major spoilers)
I loved it. Spectacular cinematography, acting, score...you name it, Ari Aster nailed it. With that said, I'm appalled that anyone would let their kid watch this. Hell, I'm surprised it's legal for anyone under the age of 18 to walk into that theater no matter who they're with. The least of your worries here (hopefully) is the language. F-word, S-word, etc etc. Then there's a very long, horrifying scene depicting a double murder-suicide (daughter kills parents, then herself), and it's shown briefly several times throughout the film when the main character is having nightmares and on drugs. That character is in emotional agony many times in the movie, screaming and crying. A scene shows two people jumping off a cliff in a ritualistic suicide pact; one is seen hitting the ground in slow motion as her face gets smashed off. The second person survives with mangled legs, his bones sticking out. Cult members proceed to smash his face in with a mallet (shown close up in daylight) and hit him several times after he is dead. The bodies are shown close up again, very suddenly, as they are being cremated. The characters are on psychedelics through the whole movie (resulting in some scenes that could make some viewers dizzy, especially if they're closer to the screen). A man's head is bashed in offscreen by a man only wearing a shirt and someone else's face as a mask. His genitals are completely visible. A girl 'drugs' a character into having sex with her using her own pubic hair and menstrual blood, which he unknowingly drinks at dinner. The sex scene that follows later in the movie is very long and bizarre. While penetration is not shown, the two are surrounded by naked women (full frontal) singing and mimicking their moaning. The main character, his girlfriend, witnesses a few seconds of it before running outside and vomiting in the grass. She is then seen surrounded by other girls mimicking her cries, which quickly turn into screaming. Her boyfriend is seen running out of the shack naked (more full frontal nudity) when he realizes what he's done and finds another character hanging up in a barn with his eyeballs gouged out and replaced by flowers, his body spread out in a 'blood eagle'. Just minutes later, characters that went missing earlier in the film are shown being wheeled into a strange building. Their eyes are gone and they seem to have been emptied so only their skin is left, then dressed up as various ritualistic figures. Also in the building is a character who was sewn into a bear alive and against his will, with only his face showing. Two other men sit around him by their own will as sacrifice. The building is set on fire, burning up the weird skin bodies and three live men. I know this was long and detailed but consider it a PSA. Please, for the love of god, don't take kids to see this!
