We’ve listed ten disturbing movies that you’re sure you’ll only have the courage to watch once. Below are movies that use disturbing plots, whether graphic or psychological, with extreme situations that cause some discomfort to the viewer during their performance. It is also worth saying that all the options mentioned are great movies, adding more than just entertainment with assertive questions about society and existence. Let’s go to the list!
10º – Enter the Void (Gaspar Noah, 2009)Nurturing an experimental aura for the unfolding of his plot, this film presents small fragments of a young man’s life before and after an extreme event. Innovative in its aesthetic conception, ‘Enter the Void’, as well as the entire filmography of the great Gaspar Noah, works to make the viewer uncomfortable, with strange and disorientating plans. However, everything in the work has a meaning, whether collective or subjective, leading us to a unique and certainly unforgettable experience.
9º – High Tension (Alexandre Aja, 2003)When visiting her best friend’s house, located in a small rural area of France, a young woman finds herself in an unpleasant situation when a serial killer invades the house at dawn, exterminating the whole family of that friend. Now it is up to her to survive and also to try to keep her friend alive. Owner of an intermittent tension (as its title indicates), this film is a pearl of the horror cinema of the beginning of this century. It’s 91 minutes of scares and twists, with memorable little scenes. However, far from being perfect, the film has one of the most pathetic endings of all genres, greatly diminishing the brightness of the rest of the work.
8º – Paradise Faith (Ulrich Seidl, 2012)Ulrich Seidl delivers here the best film of the controversial trilogy of paradise. A film that questions the ethical and moral pillars intrinsic to a society, pouring good doses of hammer on the spectator. We will have provocative themes present in the work, such as fetishism and the concept of faith as an escape from the perverse. ‘Paradise Faith’ will still make its thematic connection in history with a great classic by Chantal Akerman, the masterpiece ‘Jeanne Dielman’.
