I just saw this movie yesterday, and it amazed me. Kathy Bates' acting is supreme in this film. Not to say that James Caan deserves any less credit for his role as the clever but terrified victim, but Bates' performance is what really got me. She will not terrify you outright, not until the director wants her to. Instead, she slowly makes you more and more uncomfortable, until you truly wish she would go ahead and go psycho just so you won't be held in suspense any longer! Anyway, this is supposed to be about content, not raving, so let's get started. VIOLENCE: Whether you have seen Saw or not, this movie will make you cringe in at least one scene. It starts off with a horrible car accident, breaking both of Paul Sheldon's (James Caan) legs, which are later shown puffed up and purple after the kindly nurse Annie Wilkes (Kathy Bates) has splinted them. As Annie slowly goes insane, she becomes increasingly more violent to Paul, leading up to an incredibly cringe-inducing scene where Annie breaks both of his legs with a sledgehammer, as Liberace quietly plays the Moonlight Sonata in the background. Near the end of the movie an old man is shot through the belly with a shotgun, quite explicitly, and there is a bloody battle between Paul and Annie. No, I will not tell you who wins, that would be cheating :) SEXUAL CONTENT: Nothing that I can remember seeing. If you watch the movie and see something offensive in this category, then it slipped my notice, and I apologise. LANGUAGE: A few uses of the "F" and "S" word, and strange euphimisms from Annie. Paul also flips Annie the bird once, to which she replies "Such a kidder", with a dismissive wave of her hand. Once Paul realizes what Annie is, he goes to the typewriter Annie has bought for him, and types f***, several times. That about sums it up. If you're a fan of Stephen King, or even movies like Psycho, you should get plenty of enjoyment out of this one, but I would not recommend it for kids under 14. I apologise if this review ran a little (or a lot) long, but this is a very good movie, and I wanted to give you my full opinion.
