That is, if you can even make it through them the first time (for some, I couldn’t.)
Some rules before I start listing them off: these had to be films I actually saw. That rules out most Japanese gore-porn titles. Why? Because, while I’m sure I’ll never want to see them again, they just have no inherent cultural value to pique my interest in the first place. You cannot tell me that ‘Men Behind the Sun’ has any redeeming value. Which is not to say I’d ever censor it if when I run the world, but just that I’d never personally choose to watch something of that nature. Second, they had to be films that – true to the title – I’ve never watched again. In the interest of honesty and all.
It turns out that some of these are terrific films, films I would recommend to everyone if I thought anyone had the stomach for them. But, on a good conscience, it’s just difficult to suggest something that might make someone hate you for quite a while, so I’m shaping this in the mold of a dare instead of a recommendation.
See the list after the jump.
