I've run across stuff on PBS that's wrong for kids to be filmed in.

I agree, definitely.

I would be lying to say that the entire scene in Hard Candy where he is tied to the table, I was somewhat envious that I wasn't Ellen Page. I think that's why I can't really watch these movies. I'm not entirely sure what some of my triggers are and I definitely am still working on how to deal with myself when it comes up.

I find consolation a lot more in music, movies are just always too real for me.

I usually avoid all of these movies when I go to Blockbuster and pick up indies like the big nerd I am, maybe I need to sit one out and think about it after. Any suggestions for one not so intense to start out with?

i just finished watching for a lost soldier. wow. foriegn films can get away with much more graphic scenes. really interesting actually. i think almost that the implied scenes that american films have are much more "triggery" because your mind fills in the blank. but, for a lost soldier is not for those who are affected by watching scenes of abuse. was a good film
