CW: suicide, mental health, ableism, sexism, violence, gaslighting
Using the old "hearing voices" vague mental illness as a piece of dark humor/tragedy is unforgivable; using it in a gaslighting subplot is sick; using it in a series of Rube Goldberg suicide attempts is cruel. From a better director, one not entirely focused on a gimmick, this might have been some sort of powerful message, some sort of bleak humor that had empathy for the characters. Instead, it's just a slog as we are subjected to set piece and plot point and foreshadow and over-the-top prop and so on with little else. It's grim and twisted, but... empty. Similarly, the gross sexism displayed (especially by the subterranean folk) is treated as a matter-of-course, and the film has no room to consider what it is showing us. It's simply a tool for a bad joke or a plot twist or a piece of the big mechanical story.
