Here is a list of movies that have impressed me, even though they've been pretty disturbing.
Note: A lot of popular dark movies, viz., A Clockwork Orange, Irreversible etc., are missing from the list because I haven't gotten around watching them.
El orfanato (2007)
It's dark, scary, heartbreaking, and still... rewarding
Most of us movie-buffs aren't really scared of scary movies anymore. Primarily because we've seen it all (well almost). This movie, however, turned out to be a surprise. After reading few reviews, I realized I'm not alone here, which is very intriguing.
I kept asking myself why is that I paused the movie so many times. What am I scared of. It's a movie after all.
Answer turns out to be really simple. I am emotionally involved with the characters. I don't want to discover that anyone has been hurt. This feeling is multiplied because these characters are kids, and a very caring mother. Hat tip to the director, musician, cinematographer, and all the actors, especially Belén Rueda.
Go watch it. It's film making at it's best.
