Irreversible (2002, Directed by Gaspar Noé) Synopsis: Told in reverse order, Irreversible is the story of woman whose current lover and former lover together look for the man that brutally raped and beat her in a subway tunnel. Why This Film Was Chosen: Because Noé's the premier filmmaker of the New French Extremity and, also because, as one person so perfectly described it once, it's "soul shattering." Key Disturbing Moment: The extremely long and horrific subway attack (if you watch this film, I will warn you now: there are some things you can't unsee). vs. Videodrome (1983, Directed by David Cronenberg) Synopsis: The CEO of a small pornographic cable channel is interested in uncovering the origins of a mysterious torture/snuff program known as Videodrome. Why This Film Was Chosen: The freaky score, the great special effects, and the intriguing plot. Key Disturbing Moment: The video player that suddenly appears in the protagonist's stomach.
