LIFE ITSELF is a documentary about the life and career of the renowned film critic and social commentator, Roger Ebert.

Sex

Clips from films include sex scenes, such as a naked woman writhing on top of a naked man as they have sex, and another couple having sex in a bath. There is no strong detail.

Nudity

There are numerous images of sexualised breast and buttock nudity in brief film clips.

Violence

One film clip shows a moment of strong violence, as a man swings an axe downwards, resulting in a brief large blood spray on a wall. Other clips show moderate images of dead bloodied bodies, shoot-outs and a man beaten by a gang with baseball bats.

The film also contains infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), moderate sex references, and drug references. There are also references to terminal illness.
