Man tries to kill his wife and fool the legal system; young lawyer struggles with corruption but eventually makes the right choice.
Man shoots a woman in the face: Viewers see the shot, then the movie cuts to her falling and her bloody body on the floor (this image is repeated in flashbacks). The killer drags a bloody body across the floor, leaving a smear; man shoots himself off screen, but his bloody head is visible several times (in the present and in flashbacks); in a drawn-out scene, doctors "pull the plug" on a comatose patient; man is tackled by police, his face pressed into the floor.
Credits sequence shows a sex act in extreme, shadowed close-up (making it hard to decipher); a woman has an affair; talk of intercourse in a courtroom setting; man says his wife/kids left him because he had an affair; post-sex scene in bedroom (man and woman get dressed); repeated joke about a private investigator named "Dick" has innuendo; some crude language ("He's trying on the dress, he's sniffing the panties," "put your fingers up [the] skirt" of a dead woman, etc.).
Frequent uses of "f--k," as well as other language, like "a--hole," "hell," "s--t," "ass," "goddamn," "screwed," and "bastards."
