We’ve selected ten claustrophobic films about the real face of evil. Below are powerful works that make no concessions by bringing the worst in humanity. They are great films, but they demand a certain care from the spectator due to their strong graphic and psychological contents. Let’s go to the list!
10º – Miss Violence (Alexandros Avranas, 2013)At the birthday party of her 11th birthday, Angeliki, calm and silent, without anyone noticing, walks to the balcony of her apartment and plays. The film will spend 98 minutes in duration, breaking up the reasons for the girl’s suicide, revealing a dark side to that apparently perfect family. ‘Miss Violence’ is a punch in the spectator’s stomach, bringing the meanders of evil and its unfolding in the lives of many people. A pearl of Greek cinema.
9º – Dogville (Lars von Trier, 2003)Fleeing from a mobster, a naive woman is accepted with open arms by the residents of a small community. In the place, the woman finds a pleasant and empathetic society, living happy moments. However, nothing is really as it seems, and things will take on a gloomy outline in the relationship between the local residents and the woman. Disturbing, ‘Dogville’, directed by Lars Von Trier, has a completely different aesthetic from what we are used to, exposing constructions of scenes that stimulate the viewer’s creative sense.
8º – Eden Lake (James Watkins, 2008)A couple decides to spend a weekend in the paradise forest of a small town. However, what should be extremely pleasant for both of them, turns out to be a real hell as some local teenagers start a cruel hunt for them. Violent and disturbing, ‘Eden Lake’ is a typical film that we can only watch once, in view of its incredibly scary graphic content. A work that is not suitable for all audiences, but is regularly featured in a general compendium. The actor Michael Fassbender assumes one of the central roles, living a true martyrdom with his character.
