The movie showcases different people hitting rock bottom because of their addictions, and I suppose that the concept of having a meltdown could be applied to all of them. But the mother in particular seems to really lose her sanity.

All of the main characters suffer from drug use. The mother gets locked in a psych ward after taking diet pills. The son ends up with an infected arm from injecting heroin. Another character resorts to sex work to buy drugs.

Regarding the other comment, that’s not true consent. Coercion and being forced to do something for one’s survival is not. consensual. That’s sexual abuse. That’s rape. If you think that’s actually consensual, that’s horrifying.

According to the director the main characters all survive, but it's depicted an an ambiguous enough way that he needed to clarify that.

No cheating. It is consentually understood beforehand however it's survival sex and not really consentual in the grander sense of things for anyone.

The 'chapters' come on very loud as the labels drop on screen. Lots of sudden volume jumps because of the cinematography style, but not really traditional jump scares.

Twice. Once as Marion leaves the elevator to exit the apartment, after sleeping with the creepy bald dude. And at the end there's a chaotic mash up of scenes of all characters * SPOILERS AHEAD:

in the scene where Marion is in the orgy, and then it shows Harry in the hospital and Tyrone mashing potatoes, it flashes through them faster and faster and eventually we briefly see some shots of Tyrone being sick in jail.

It's really brutal and seriously messed me up. I wish I had known before seeing this movie. Don't watch if you're afraid of this specific thing or of mentally ill people being abused.
