    Easily one of the most fucked up, disturbing, and utterly hardcore movies I've ever seen. It invokes such an emotional and physical response, I just don't know how to descibe it. I think you'd have to be brain dead to not want to turn violent or get even slightly sick while watching it, especially if you are a heterosexual male.

    It was awesome... very few movies accomplish that kind of effect these days. What really gets to me is that the subject matter, I think, is very true and real, it's something that could be happening in some part of the world right now just like that. No one wants to talk about it, no one wants to see it, but there it is. It's real. Tough to digest, but an eye opener none the less.

    Little known fact (really makes the movie unique):

    Thoughts? Reactions? Agreements or disagreements? It's definitely a movie that warrants serious discussion.

    Yup. That scene - unreal. I've seen a lot of fucked up things in my life - the beheading videos from the middle east, all kinds of gross stuff... but in that scene.., the camera angle, length of the scene, on a big screen - it is beyond words. Well executed, but very, VERY hard to digest.

    I have to agree with this comment, but what I wonder and question is the length of said scene; I believe that you could get the same results in half that time (read: 4 to 4 1/2 minutes) but it dragged on.

    If you guys want to see a really, really, fucked up revenge flick than look no further.

    Yes, I've seen the movie. Yes, I liked it. Yes, it was intense.

    It literally made me ill. And then made me weep when you knew Monica, so happy and nude at the end of the movie was about to be tossed to the wolves.

    That is a very interesting technique. Sounds like something Oliver Stone or Tarantino would do.

    I personally haven't or never will see the film since I know the subject matter and would rather not have to sit through it. Haven't heard much bad about it though.

    Good to see someone out there daring enough to make it.

    The movie did leave me feeling a little bit queasy, but the effect wasn't all that noticeable.

    It's probably the first time I've seen a chick naked, and actually been extremely upset at the same time. :hs:

    It's the most horiffic rape I've ever seen in a movie. It's not like those afterschool specials warning girls of date rate. It hurts to watch and is gut wrenching. If someone doesn't feel disturbed after watching it they might want to check themselves into the nearest mental institution. YES it's just a movie and YES they are just acting but it's brutal.

    The rest of the movie was kinda so-so for me. It just makes you feel all-together gross. Probably how the director wants you to feel.
