at around the middle of the runtime a character reveals he can hypnotize others to manipulate the end result, and so it's never clear which of their memories are real and which aren't

It's never outright confirmed by the character, but an important character that dies is repeatedly accused of being in love with his male boss, though it seems less about the gender and more because of the pain his boss inflicts being what he's into. Very easy to read him as bi if not gay, though.
