Well, there’s always Pasolini’s Salo – the most over-the-top violent movie I’ve ever seen. However, it’s not shoot-‘em-up violence – it’s torture, rape, murder… and psychological violence.
It must be Salo!
I agree with either man bites dog, robocop, or Hard Boiled
Just watched Kurosawa’s ‘Ran’. Violent enough for me.
man bites dog and robocop
Sword of Doom?
No mention of Andy Warhol’s Dracula and Frankenstein yet.
Salo is more like psychological and political violence. Not so much blood and guts and death. Its just very oppressive.
On the other hand…
-Robocop. Criterion or the new special edition has both R and X
-Man Bites Dog has some pretty intense violence.
-Andy Warhol’s Flesh for Frankenstien and Blood for Dracula. Though the criterions are hard as hell to find, I think Image puts them out now. More funny/scary “movie” violence than death and gore.
-Hard Boiled is pretty intense for the shooting.
-Jigoku’s last half hour is nothing but blood, death, screaming, close ups of eviscerated bodies flailing in hell. Good stuff.
-Branded to Kill, Tokyo Drifter, Gate of Flesh, all those Suzuki movies.
-Straw Dogs is hellaboss.
Irreversible (shudders) – the gay club scene (though not cc)
Salo (shudders 2x)- the last 10 minutes
where can i see ‘straw dogs?’
its not available on netflix!
Nobody has mentioned Hard Boiled, sure it’s out of print, but I’d say it still counts.
Ran was surprisingly violent as hell.
