No, although the protagonist’s life story is told in frequent flashbacks he experiences at emotional moments, including flashbacks to traumatic incidents. The flashbacks are the narrative kind rather than the PTSD kind; Otto they seem more like memories than literal flashbacks

There is also a scene where the protagonist shuts his garage door while a woman is inside, and she pounds on the door. We see her phone light in darkness as the door shuts. But a few seconds later Otto tells her the door is not locked and we see her open the door and get out. It’s played for laughs and very brief

A lot of people must not understand how sensitive some of us are to shaky cam filming. There are a few moments filmed with shaky cam/handheld. They are very brief and easy to look away without missing anything.

No - the opposite. There is positive representation of a trans character, supported by the protagonist. There is reference to that character not being accepted by their family.

Otto is chastised for having autistic traits by other characters. (Very straightforward in his conversation - called rude for doing so)

Also for sticking to rules in a black and white fashion (at work, at home in his neighbourhood - everything.)

To add to the other comment, Otto does allow him to stay at his house. We never see him struggling for a place to stay, only him asking Otto and being let in. He is a recurring character, though, it is not a one-off scene. We see him with Otto a lot afterwards

More bittersweet than sad in my opinion. It's hard to explain without spoiling the film. The characters get happy endings for the most part but something sad happens at the very end, albeit not as sad as you may expect judging by the rest of the movie.

We see a character preparing to attempt suicide with a gun, but he moves it away from himself at the last moment. He does fire a shot into the ceiling, which is heard. He then answers the door with the gun in his hand, which frightens the teen standing outside. He tells the teen “I’m not gonna shoot you” and says the gunshot noise was the generator. Nobody actually gets shot or shot at.
