Not exactly, but might be worth mentioning there are shots inside a hot dog factory. No live animals or recognizable animal parts, just a lot of wieners coming down the conveyor belt.

There's a disturbing shot towards the very end where a bearded homeless man is walking towards the camera clutching his groin. As he gets nearer, we see what might be disease-ridden genitalia. The footage is grainy and blurry, mercifully.

Maybe, by the camera. There are a lot of shots of people walking in the street (or subway station etc) not all of whom may be aware they're being filmed.

Some people do look directly into the camera when being filmed, however. It could feel as if they are looking at you and acknowledging your presence in the system being depicted.

The final scene of the destroyed rocket ship debris falling to Earth questions whether or not humanity will destroy itself in its quest to create and conquer new worlds. The whole movie portrays humanity’s detachment from nature and destruction of the environment and entry into a computerized world of war, dehumanization and disillusionment
