We have listed ten incredible films that are not recommended for all audiences. The items on this list are noteworthy for having strong stories, provocations to various instances of society and for generating discomfort while bringing a fascination for what is being told. Due to their intense content, they are films that are not always indicated for all audiences, but that, it’s good to say, manage to bring a sense of re-evaluation of everything in relation to the unique life to the spectators during and after their screenings. Let’s go to the list!
10º – Happiness (Todd Solondz, 1998)This work summarizes the whole idea of this list. Here, we will see the search of several characters for happiness, facing the most diverse types of physical, moral or psychological obstacles, simply to discover that the sought element does not exist. A provocative film, repulsive at certain moments, but deliciously accurate in its attacks. One of the most audacious films of the 1990s and the greatest work of Todd Solondz’s career.
9º – Shame (Steve McQueen, 2011)We will explore the life of a successful 30-year-old man who finds himself completely obsessed with the figure of sex. We will gain strength in the plot when the subject’s sister visits him, awakening a series of destructive memories from the past and making his compulsion completely out of control. A masterpiece, ‘Shame’ is disturbed by his visceral exposure of an erratic compendium of human life, moving the viewer not by its history, but by the genius with which each plan is conceived. Here, Michael Fassbender has the performance of his life and one of the greatest in the history of cinema.
