The Cell freaked me out and I'm pretty tuff! It has left a real impression on me.

The most recent movie I saw that put me off my feed for awhile was Scorsese's Raging Bull

Irreversible. An excellent film, but really does cross that grey area for me. The rape scene in particular is excruciating.

Sin City and Kill Bill are some other movies that I cannot watch because the ultra-violence. Violence-as-pornography is just sick.

Both of those films have over-the-top violence, but the violence didn't turn me off so much as the cartoonesque ridiculousness of the violence.

I've always found the violence in A Clockwork Orange to be very disturbing, but it's supposed to be disturbing. Great movie.
