9 Films with Disturbing Characters – You Have to Watch These - Videos

Film recommendations, some from book adaptations

Some of my favorite films of course; only the first few of the many that introduced me to world cinema. And that have also made me a BETTER READER. Watching great films has helped me vividly imagine scenes while I’m reading. The way I understand the pace of different narratives, that has also improved…etc. etc. It’s made me more imaginative as a reader!

Also, sitting through unpleasant, bleak, disturbing stuff in movies has its upsides. Definitely.
I find it very comforting to see unfiltered, undecorated ‘reality’ in films. So I hope they have the same effect on you. I really, really hope they do. Haha. Let’s see. Let me know. :)
