A main theme on the film is domestic violence and mistreatment of women and how the people involved on crimen in reality are unstable and gross

They show a chicken factory, but no actual animals, just the heaps of plucked feathers

Yes. Violently. In the back of a driving car. Twice. Presumably vaginally and analy. While nudity is minimal, the actual acts are realistic and terrifying.
And of course, the rapist gets away with it. In fact, since she's like a mild obsession of his, he seems surprised she doesn't want anything to do with him and that she is upset. He (the rapist) even looks confused when the driver appears angry after hearing the entire rape.
Really hard scene.

No but there are a lot of moments where it looks like they’re about to. When Noodles smokes opium in the first scene he starts hiccuping and making groaning noises, when Max is beaten up by Bugsy he coughs uncontrollably, and there’s also a scene where a character is doused in petrol and it gets in his mouth and he starts gagging

As well as the rapes, the teenage boys and adults alike pay an underage girl for sex. There’s also quite a few scenes of the boys watching a girl through a hole in the wall, propositioning girls, exposing themselves, using sexual language and generally being randy teenage boys with no morals. Then as adults there’s the rapes, a weird scene of Noodles having sex with a woman pretending to be a corpse in a hearse, and more

Ambiguous. We don’t know how many of the films events are real and how many are opium dreams, but it seems like Noodles is in danger as the film ends
