So... What the hell do I mean by 'Hardcore movies' ?!?!

I mean movies which so deeply schocked me (most of the time by their stories but sometimes by their visuals) that I still thought about them days afterward. For some of them, I'm still shaken up years later....

I don't provide any notes explaining why they were shocking to me. I don't want to spoil it. If you have seen the movie, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't seen it, you have never heard about it and you still wonder what is so 'hardcore' about it, I guess you'll have to wacht it then...
