A mother and daughter are raped and murdered. There is a very short but scary scene after their husband/father finds out that shows what happened between a man and the young girl.

No? But a minor is sexually assaulted, and the whole scene makes you very uncomfortable because the implication that they're gonna rape her is heavy.

Looong sequece in the opening scene, a bunch of women dancing naked, played slowly. Right after their bodies laid down on a gallery.
Later, two women shown naked on a sofa after they were murdered, we only see the back of one of them. When the protagonist calls her daughter we see her in the same position as the body, so we see her butt and naked body from behind.
Also, naked man sitting on a toilet. They talk to him while he is in the position so the scene lasts. We see his whole body but the genitalia his hidden by his knee.

When they're driving by a really dark, empty road another car comes up and after driving pass each other a couple times they start to get mad and drive recklessly. The other car starts trying to make them hit them on purpose, first they crash from behind but continue driving. Then the "chase" goes on and the other car starts crashing into them side by side until they are throw off the road and forced to stop. No VIOLENT crash, just a bunch of hard touches.

Lots of shots fired, guns shown and used as a threat. Gun-related deaths only in the end of the movie.
