My Comments:

Though rated R, there is very little actual violence, no nudity that I can recall and not much profanity. However, the images of the crime scenes are pretty graphic and may be disturbing to some people.

If that sort of thing doesn't bother you, however, you're in for a real treat here. Though well over ten years old, the film is still as taught and compelling as it was on its original release. The performances are amazing all around - but most notably by a then relatively unknown Kevin Spacey, whose cool and calculationg John Doe totally makes the ending.
