There is abuse of 2 women, by 2 men and some of the abuse is gas lighting. It is not " just to get the scene". It is emotional, verbal, physical abuse and economic abuse as all their money is on the line. ,and controlling behaviors as abuse as well.
Emotional abuse is also bad directing, and unskilled, in a creative work.

THE BEAR DOES NOT GET HIT - What actually happens (spoiler alert) is that the driver of the car swerves so as not to hit the bear, and winds up hitting a tree. The bear can clearly be heard roaring still as the car hisses steam and beeps in the woods.

A bear is hit by a car.
I read the votes from the 1st 2 people, who voted here, and decided to watch this, thinking no animals or " the bear" would be hurt. I am mad. Animals are hurt in this movie, specifically a cute bear. They show the image before the impact and the sound of the hit, and audio of the bear's sounds, of being hurt!! Do not like!

[SPOILERS] towards the end of the movie, Aubrey Plaza is heavily intoxicated and calls for an employee of the set and forces herself on him. The man says “no” repeatedly and tries to stop her from taking her clothes off. Eventually, it seems like he consents and they have sex mostly off-screen. Dubious consent because she’s the actress and he’s just an employee who might get fired if he doesn’t have sex with her; she’s also heavily intoxicated.

there is extreme emotional abuse in the second act of the film as Allison’s husband, the director of the film she’s in, pushes her further and further to get the shot. he puts her psychological torture and it’s very hard to watch.

In Act 2 you could argue that Allison suffers PTSD from her husband/director's behavior towards her

My observation is that someone is self harming and getting mauled by bear off camera. There is self destructive abuse of alcohol. There is staying out in the cold.

In a way, yes. SPOILER: an actress is overwhelmed with a scene and actually begins panicking, causing her to attack a fellow actress

The last half of the movie is basically one long anxiety attack. I cannot stress enough how intense it is. I’m not one to panic at the sight of others panicking but holy shit this is a lot

It’s unclear. Somebody, drunk and upset, intentionally approaches a bear, and I think we hear a snarl/growl, and then the scene changes.

A pregnant woman falls (after being pushed onto a couch) and bleeds and has to be rushed to the hospital (she says she is in pain and is crying). On the way to the hospital there is a car crash, but we don’t find out what happened after the crash.
