    In 1953 I saw some quite gruesome B&W photographs of traffic accident victims in Japan as part of a safe driving campaign. Robert Mapplethorpe captured some fine photographs, but also some disturbing ones.

    Interesting that nearly all of these are films. Agree with Blue Velvet suggestion, probably more brilliant than disturbing.

    But the most truly, existentially disturbing film I've seen is Society. Couldn't have seen anything worse at a younger age. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0098354/

    The most disturbing photographs I've seen were photojournalistic, but even the atrocities of war pale in comparison to the above mentioned film. Sincerely.

    I saw some of those here in Virginia back in the 1960s & 70s.

    When I took Driver's Ed here in Ohio, they showed very gory films of the aftermath of accidents.

    Eddie Adam's 1968 Pulitzer Prize winner of the Saigon police chief executing his "suspected" Viet Cong prisoner on a public street in broad daylight. The TV coverage of the same execution, while also a little tough to watch, lacked the same impact.
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Doesn't that say something about the still image? To be able to give more impact than a moving image coverage and often in black & white. Simple is often the common denominator.

    Any photograph of a doll is disturbing to me. Just thought of that. They creep me out.
