Irreversible 2002,  Unrated)
This one stays with you for life!
Salo (Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma) 1979,  NC-17)
Salo (Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma)
Challenging, disturbing and still relevant after 40 years. The social and political subtext still resonates. Over the years this has influenced filmmakers diverse as Michael Haneke, David Cronenberg and even Eli Roth.
C'est arrivé près de chez vous (Man Bites Dog) (It Happened in Your Neighborhood) 1992,  NC-17)

The performance from Benoit is extraordinary to say the least. His energy leaps from the screen. Makes you wanna ring your Nanna just to see if she's alright.
Gummo 1997,  R)
Cat killers and kids that prostitute their disabled sisters. Nice one!
Ex Drummer 2011,  Unrated)

Bizzarro black comedy!
Calvaire (The Ordeal) 2006,  Unrated)

What exactly were they doing to that calf?
Requiem for a Dream 2000,  R)
Requiem for a Dream
Darren Aronofsky's follow-up to his groundbreaking "Pi" is a portrait of addiction, disturbing in the achingly emotive performances and in its suggestion we could all go down that road. Ellen Burstyn is Sara, whose addiction to sugar and television becomes an addiction to diet pills as she tries to lose weight to enter a tv game show. Her son, Harry [Jared Leto] is addicted to heroin, as is his girlfriend Marion [Jennifer Connelly]. This is not your typical drug-addicts-cleanup story, this is a stunning, brutal account of where addiction can lead all of us!
Men Behind the Sun 1988,  Unrated)
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer 1986,  NC-17)
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
Raw, uncompromising and genre-defining. You can almost smell this film which is loosely based on the real killings of Henry Lee Lucas, whose 1985 death sentence was later reduced to life imprisonment by the Texas governor, one George W. Bush. Set in a grim, working class Chicago, this takes us through one graphic killing after another. Although the real Henry [male, white, drifter, softly spoken, shy] was caught, here he remains free, as the film focuses on a disturbingly realistic examination of killing. The use of unknown actors, coupled with debut director McNaughton's grimy visual approach, leaves the viewer feeling like a voyeur at times. Some scenes proved to much for the actors, with one actress going into shock after her scene as a victim. The full uncut version runs at 85 minutes [Region 2].
The Exorcist III 1990,  R)
