-"Forks over Knives", a provocative documentary about how a plant based diet can improve your health and why.
-"Untraceable".. some sick dude is torturing people to death live on the internet...
-"Bronson".. a true tale about Britain's most violent prisoner.
I watched this french (subtitled) flick called "7 Days" about this guy who's daughter is kidnapped and worse.... Dad takes things into his own hands... beyond the disturbing images, I found the character portrayals of a few of the characters really drew me in, and had to watch to the end.

"French new wave icon Jean-Paul Belmondo stars as Silien, a poker-faced crook who may or may not have squealed on newly sprung gangster Maurice Faugel (Serge Reggiani) in this ice-cool noir from the great Jean-Pierre Melville. Fedoras, trench coats, dark alleys and jazz pervade this intricate crime drama, which features a virtuoso eight-minute interrogation scene -- done in a single take -- that was a highlight of Melville's remarkable career."

1976 R121 minutes
When network news anchor Howard Beale (Peter Finch) loses his mind on the air, his outrageous rants reach viewers at home, boost the ratings and intrigue cutthroat network executives Faye Dunaway and Robert Duvall. William Holden contrasts their avarice as an old-school TV journalist hopelessly out of step in writer Paddy Chayefsky's Oscar-winning masterpiece, which predicted today's rash of trash television and shock-laden news broadcasts.
*Still relevant in today's media and a good reminder to think beyond what is fed to us via mass media.

if you want to lose faith in humanity, watch "Megan is Missing"
On your advice, I saw that one last night. I'm on a depraved movie kick, apparently. I liked it. I bought into the "true story" aspect of it for all of 5 minutes though. Should be required viewing for all young adults as the events depicted in this movie aren't that far fetched, unfortunately.
