Could I have watched this with my Dad? : Yes, and I want to sometime, but I might have to skip that one sex scene (below).
Could I have watched this with my Mom? : NoO!
Sex: YES. There is a sex scene that shows almost everything. It was painful enough to watch when I was alone, let alone with other people. Unfortunately, the movie splits that scene up into a few pieces and places critical information in between so you can't really just skip it. (bleh.)
Language: Yes. A lot. F-bombs all over, the c word, etc.
Violence/Gore: Yes, also a lot. A lot of blood and gory stuff. (Much violence. Very gore. So blood.)
Intense moments? : YES. Most of the movie is one giant ball of intensity.
Music: I hardly noticed the music. It was very minimal, but used well.
Did I feel the need to leave the lights off and sit in silence afterwards? : YES. When I saw this the first time all alone I sobbed through most of the movie and sat in shocked silence in the dark for a long time after it finished. At that moment it became one of my favorite movies of all time.
Was there a food pairing? : Last night there was mac n cheese. It was the shells and white cheddar kind. Pretty tasty.
Thoughts: When I first watched this, I had no clue what was coming for me. There are twists and turns the movie took that I did not see coming at all. (Everyone else I've watched it with predicts them though, so I think I just actively avoiding guessing the plot sometimes. When I go for the "willing suspension of disbelief," I usually go all in.) This movie broke my heart, blew my mind, and I loved it.
Was this a good use of a night with the house to myself? : Absolutely.
In the End: 5 out of 5 stars, I love having my heart broken and my mind blown.
