The occasional sexuality is unexpected, matching the surreal nature of the movie is also oddly lit and colored.

In the opening scene a man sits naked on a stool. He is shown from behind and the side.

Several closeups of cleavage in clothing.

A woman wears a provocative nurse costume. From the side, her nipple can be seen from the cleavage.

A character visits an online web-cam site, a fully clothed woman is shown with an "enter me" sign over her, Later she starts to strip and dance while voices type and yell lurid things. The lady's breasts are exposed for a few seconds.

It is implied one character is a prostitute, she mentions that a man can't put anything inside of her. (Fully dressed scene)

A naked man and women are seen floating in space briefly (nothing shown.)

Rear nudity as a man walks naked into the water - because sun is in front no detail visible it's washed out by the sun - almost silhouette.

A man tears off a woman's bikini top and proceeds to forcefully kiss her naked upper body, in an almost rape-like way.

A few mild references

not really any. A man is seen on a stretcher in the background of a scene, a character has a bandage with some minor blood spots, a few people fall over unconscious.

Strong swearing, mostly on the part of one minor, a few strong religious profanities, other mild language throughout

Very brief party scene near the beginning of the movie

Surreal movie, religion, the meaning of life, futility, authoritarianism, fate, self determination, the individual, the whole, ....

Rated R for language and some sexuality/nudity
