The teachers showed us that movie in middle school.

Then there was the link with the picture of her after her car had been struck by a drunk driver, and she'd been burned over her entire body. I will not describe what she looked like afterwards, I just remember pushing myself away from the keyboard in shock.

She was brave enough to let her picture be used, to try and get the point across about the dangers of DUI.
Poor, poor Jacqueline Saburido. She's been like that since 1999. She was 20 or so when it happened. I think about her all the time. Her friends in the front seats were killed. The drunk driver did eight years in jail.

I was ready to be shocked and horrified, but I was just bored. I understand what Pasolini was trying to do, and the reasons behind all the awful things happening, but it just provoked little reaction in me.

That made me grit my teeth in empathy pain, but not too bad. Then later on the crazy woman grabbed scissors and gave herself a clitoridecotmy. Snip, snip. Did I mention this film showed full nudity with no cut aways? I guess if you're into knife play it could be pretty hot, but no. Thanks a lot, Lars von Trier.
I did flinch at that. I thought it was a powerful film, all things considered.

I love Trainspotting! I've seen it multiple times, and watched clips from it many more times.

Same for Se7en!
