Society just for the end scene. Like wtf?

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
It's non-stylized, realistic and painfully graphic violence makes Silence of the Lambs looks like a Disney film. Haven't seen this in over a decade... not exactly lite viewing fare.
On the other end of the spectrum is a couple from Takashi Miike. These two are highly stylized yet completely unnerving and at times nauseating.
and the infamous...
This baby grabs you by the nads right from the start and you know you're in for a craaazy ride. The title credits are made to look like they're done in a specific body fluid... not blood, not sweat, not tears...
I watched 'Henry' for the first time last year. Maybe it's because I've been desensitized by movies like Se7en & 8MM etc but I thought Henry was chit.
I realize it was made a long time ago but viewing it today I didn't get why it was so hyped up. Just my 2 cents TB.)
I've often wondered if it stood the test of time (that's why I mentioned I hadn't seen it for a while). Judging from viewer comments on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb lots of viewers still find it pretty nasty.
I'm almost curious enough to seek it out and try watching it again.
Have you seen any of Miike's stuff?
He started off with a few decent supporting roles but the last time I saw was in a nothing role in a CSI episode.
Makes me wonder if he was a tool to work with ala Sean Young.
Just because it was one of the first I saw that "first person-ized" somebody with a total disregard for the sanctity of human life.
And for the same reason:
I generally avoid these kinds of movies but Exorcist was the first which messed with my head. 8MM did as well.
