Best Confronting/Controversial Movies....

Recommended Posts

Since we had 'Best War Movies' I thought of this theme. There are a few I know but probably lots I don't. I'm thinking:

 

Bad Boy Bubby

Romper Stomper (Australian)

Convict (Australian)

The Silence of the Lambs

Trainspotting

A Clockwork Orange

Pulp Fiction(maybe)

 

I'd love some other ideas. Interesting genre. Not that I'm a sicko haha 🤪

 

P.S.Keep violent sex and other ones that are over the top out as Stereonet does have rules. eg. Paedophile/children/totally porn themed.

I still find it hard to watch Reservoir Dogs. I think of it as very confronting.

I know I could look up a list but I'd rather hear from ones that you've actually seen and thought were good.

Surprised you haven't seen Reservoir Dogs if you've seen Pulp Fiction? Probably first one to check out. A few more:

 

Possession

As discussed in the other thread Come and See (confronting)

The Hunt (subject matter) and from that perhaps..

Happiness

Lilya 4-Ever

All the more terrifying because it’s a doco

Good point mate.

 

Restrepo opened my eyes to the horror those guys must go through.

Dancer in the Dark (starring Bjork).

 

Wasn't keen on seeing a "musical", but by the end, oh my God, I reckon I sat there for an hour afterwards in the dark.
