Netflix Movie Fans

So I just finished watching Princess:

http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Princess/70122900?trkid=222336&str...

This is one fucked up flick. Do NOT let a child near this movie, as it is pretty much the exact opposite of what children should be watching. Brutal, dark, twisted, scenes that will possible disgust you. Dark from beginning to end. Still, if you can ...handle a movie about child abuse on multiple levels, horrible horrible people and a messed up ending, you will...I don't want to say like or enjoy...how about not hate this flick.

Has anyone else watched this? Any other movies you can think of that will give you these opinions?

Not all anime is for children and you have to keep that in mind, and just because the movie is of a dark nature doesn't mean it will be hated sometimes with movies like this the subject matter is hard to put out into the public and if they do a good job then it is good. Have you ever seen Kids? This movie made me not ever what to have kids. It is horrible and the horrible part is that it is really going on. so when you watch it maybe keep in mind that reality is pretty horrible and story tellers just like to open our eyes...specially if you live in the 9-5, white collar scene.
I watched it just recently. Yes, it's a very rough watch, but I really liked it. There's a lot of other animation I wouldn't let kids watch. I'm not looking at numbers, but I wouldn't be surprised if half the animation NF offers isn't suitable for children.
The book (written by Jack Ketchum) is even more disturbing than the movie. Apparently it's based on true events.
If you want to watch or avoid disturbing movies then all of TAKASHI MIIKE's movies are very disturbing. I have Princess in my queue and honestly all this talk makes me want to move it to the top.
I'm gradually learning your tastes. Queue this up.
Haven't seen it.

Did an Episode on this Movies that Screw with your Mind. The Audition by Takashi Mike is probably the darkest.
I agree. I've seen a lot of disturbing movies and I think the Audition tops the list for me. I actually liked the movie Princess. I gave it 4 stars. Yes, the content was disturbing, but there were also some tender moments between the uncle and niece. In some ways it kind of reminded me of the Professional, with Jean Reno, which is one of my favorite movies.
I haven't seen The Audition, but I've seen suffered through Ichi the Killer. Not for kids and not for me...
I would have had no connection with it whatsoever if I hadn't spent over 2 years in Japan. They revel in shit that scares us.
I apologize if I sounded like I didn't like this movie, or am offended or turned of by violent anime/movies in general. I actually watch a ton of adult oriented (not that kind, you pervs!:P) anime. I think I was trying to address people that think animation is only for children, which I think is rediculous. Animation is a wonderful way to express adult concepts, because you can be so much mroe visual without breaking belief.

I guess, looking at my post, I probably should have actually said, I was very impressed with this movie, and it left a mark on me. What else should I watch. At the time, I had just finished watching it that day, so I was not really able to say things such as "I loved this movie". But now that I'm a few days away from it, I did like it. It stayed with me for a while. It did sort of fizzle out a little at the end though, just to warn you.

I love Miike films also. I've seen a few. I have Ichi the Killer waiting at home, will hopefully watch it in a few days. I have always been amazed I've never scene it, so finally made the effort to make sure I watched it. I am thinking of slowly, over the next year or so, of watching all his films in order.
Ichi is a good movie if you can stomach the torture. I couldn't. I don't mind the blood and gore that much, but there are a couple of scenes in it that just passed my tolerance level.
To me, films like Ichi are a litmus test for Japanese horror. In the two years plus I spent there ('96-'98), I stayed the bloody fuck away from the horror shelves after renting a couple titles.

Your tolerance level, Knald, is nothing to be ashamed of. I watched chambra for two years rather than get into the horror.

It was more acceptable to me to watch men slice each other to death than it was to get into Miike's mind.
