    Blue Velvet. That is one seriously twisted film.

    The remakes of the Pink Panther series and Get Smart disturbed me

    Seriously, though, as far as "disturbing," I can use that to describe something, but never really found any movie disturbing, including many mentioned above. Even if it is based on real events, the fact that it is staged takes the "disturbing" part away for me.
    We've watched spinal surgery on TV while eating dinner; not much phases my family.

    However, years ago there was some news program showing reconstructive surgery on a little girls face. They had actually detached the face to do so. When they were pulling it back up like a mask, I did find it a bit disturbing.

    I'm afraid just about any and all frightening movies or photos I've ever seen no longer phase me at all. I wish they did. The Exorcist was at one time quite horrifying, for instance. But I believe that what my Yahoo Mail news headlines page hammers me with repeatedly is the most maddening and sickening. Particularly in about the last 5 or 6 years. I do not get Fox or any other cable or satellite. My TV is practically permanently set on METV. But I do take a bit of heart that Fox hands it right back to 'em.
    This photographic site and other related photographic fellowship goes a long way in allowing me to share a common interest with those from the "other side of the aisle", aside from namecalling and venom.
    With that, I think the OP meant movies, and not "current events" as subject discussion.

    The one film that did disturb me the most was Natural Born Killers. The is a certain scene featuring Rodney Dangerfield, where they turn a domestic violence situation into a sitcom. Yeah, I know it was done in that way for a reason, but I still found it really confronting and distasteful.

    Slightly OT, I've always quite liked Musicals, but hadn't seen The Sound of Music for about 30 years. I remembered it as a harmless tale with catchy music, but, when I saw it again on tv last month, my wife and I found it totally embarrassing, just too naive, simple and syrupy....couldn't even be bothered to watch it through!

    Yet others, e.g. Oklahoma, Brigadoon, Oliver, Phantom of the Opera, My Fair Lady, etc., we can enjoy every Christmas! (And particular on the, now very rare, occasions when they are shown on the big screen, preferably analogue in 70mm, six-channel sound......)
