There's blood and violence but not excessive if you ask me. Two people get stabbed, one through the throat. One characters gets his legs broken, but he is wearing pants so you can't actually see much. A corpse's feet and arms get sawed off (off-screen) and when they show them, they have blood on them. A corpse's teeth get smashed with a hammer but it happens off-screen and you can't see it afterwards.

David watches Alex and Juliet from the loft. Alex and Juliet don't know when he's wtaching and when he's not.

Juliet gets letters and phone calls from someone, it's never said who. Possible stalker.

There's lots of lying in the movie, e.g. a murderer pretending he's not, a partner not revealing they're moving country, but there's no actual *gaslighting* as in trying to distort somebody's peception/making them doubt reality - which is an important distinction.

There's no sexual assault, but worth mentioning: SPOILERS__________________________ A man very violently grabs a woman, pins her the floor and ties her hands behind her back. He also pulls some of her clothes up over her head - which was personally triggering, but I re watched it to check, & it was just her jumper & there was no sexual assault. Happens mid way through the film.

No but a woman gets restrained and pinned to the floor by an intruder in her apartment, which at first seems like she might get raped.

The movie has two detectives. They don't get a lot of screentime and honestly don't do much. They seem to be pretty smart and are generally good guys. Wouldn't really call it copaganda though.

Alex and Juliet decide to spend money and get drunk. At some point they decide to dress Alex in women's clothes and make up. No one comments on this, and he isn't made purposefully ugly. The movie doesn't direct any attention towards this.

Definitely not a happy ending but I don't really know if I'd call it sad. But none of the main characters aee doing well by the end, except for one possibly. But like the main characters are pretty awful people so it's hard to feel that bad for them.
