Frequent campaigns to boycott movie or TV series launches – e Mermaid or The Lord of the Rings: Rings of Power here are some recent examples – they demonstrate the fact that the current decade has become accustomed to being the scene of public protests. By now, it often happens (perhaps too often) that future films are accused on social networks of being conceived with the specific intention of winning the favor of viewers belonging to a given social context: a lot of attention has been paid to the alleged choice made to gain the approval of the public , while many other controversial titles have been almost overlooked for exactly the opposite reasons. In fact, some films seem to have been made with the precise intent to stir up the audience, to unleash the rage, frustration, annoyance and displeasure of those who watch them. And examples, more or less recent, of course, are enough. From historical works that shocked the whole world, like Salo or 120 days of Sodom Pier Paolo Pasolini, we come to the controversial Irreversible Gaspar Noe, without forgetting films such as Hostel Eli RothLatest House of Jack Lars von Trier Funny Games From Michael Haneke. Today we have collected several titles in our gallery: 10 Movies People Just Hate
SALO OR 120 DAYS OF SODOMA (1975) by Pier Paolo Pasolini
A work created both by the Marquis de Sade and a joint reading of Marx and Freud, in which sex is used as an instrument of torture and a means of dominating one class over another. With a gigantic, even apocalyptic sense of provocation.
BORN (1990) E. Elias Merhige
A hard-to-read film for many, this hermetic feature film, which has become a true underground cult over the years, is as esoteric and indecipherable as it is obscure and mesmerizing. Not for everyone and easily hated, but also a memorable example of experiments on art and on the theme of motherhood (Susan Sontag included it among the 10 most important modern films, proving its magnitude).
IRRÉVERSIBLE (2002) Gaspard Noé
Probably all the films of Gaspard Noé could be mentioned in this ranking, but the most “representative” in this sense is perhaps the film with Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel, whose rape scene in the subway tunnel annoyed legions of viewers and gave Noé an eternal license. scandalous author.
dormitory (2005) Eli Roth
Produced by Quentin Tarantino, this gruesome and shocking horror is one of the most gratuitous and over the top of the new millennium, a riot of gruesome decisions and atrocities that abhor any compromise a priori and step on the accelerator without hesitation.
FUN GAMES (2007) Michael Haneke
An American version of the 1997 Austrian original, the film follows the same plot as the previous one. What has changed in the actors: the exhausted mom and dad are played by American stars Naomi Watts and Tim Roth, and the two psychopathic boys have the icy faces of Michael Pitt and Brady Corbet. Making a frame-by-frame remake of one’s own film is a “theoretical” operation much like Haneke’s surgical and forced cinema, but it certainly doesn’t create an immediate sense of positivity in the viewer when faced with potential rejection.
SERBIAN FILM (2010) by Srdjan Spasojevic
Among the most degenerate films of the new millennium is certainly this work, which combines voyeuristic “denunciation” of the world of porn, political metaphors and sequences of aberrations and gestures full of shame and cruelty, into an escalation that knows no rest, even reaching to the rape of a newborn.
THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE (2011) Tom Six
Two American tourists have been chosen as guinea pigs for a horrifying experiment: the surgical union of three living beings to give birth to the “ideal” creature, the human centipede. Sadistic and extreme torture porn brought to the threshold of cult aberration.
Spring Break (2012) Harmony Korine
Four provocative college students (Rachel Korine, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson) explore a life of debauchery punctuated by robbery, drugs and hangovers in a film that loves to capture the imagination of MTV generation teen idols and emulate it with sour viciousness. From the use of slow motion to the use of the Britney Spears Everytime soundtrack, provocation close to mockery is always on the way.
MOTHER! (2017) Darren Aronofsky
A woman (Jennifer Lawrence), a writer in crisis (Javier Bardem) and an isolated villa where mysterious visits filled with discomfort degenerate into a Grand Guignol theater of the absurd, steeped in biblical metaphor and zombie madness. For many, a film that loudly elicits booing and contempt (in Venice it found both) and consciously aiming for both is almost suicidal.
JACK’S HOUSE (2018) Lars von Trier
The Danish director’s latest film follows 12 years of the life of a serial killer played by Matt Dillon who claims to have killed dozens and dozens of people. The director fills this story with sinister “autobiographical” echoes (in the artistic sense, of course), and the whole work is so brazen that it irritates several times, perhaps more than any other von Trier film. Even if with his cinema he is always part of the game, from the Idiots to the Antichrist…
