Too Intense To Re-Watch

One of the many reasons film is so fascinating is they have the capability to bring out so many different kinds of emotions in us. There are so many excellent films that can easily make us laugh, cry and reflect. They can scare us, make us edgy, disturb us, make us angry, sad and/or happy. Movies can also be entertaining enough that we find ourselves watching the same one again and again. However, there are a few movies that are much too intense to view more than once. This is what I'd like to focus your attention on. These movies usually tend to touch base on sensitive topics. They are definitely worth watching once, however after that the need to re-watch them any time soon, or ever again for that matter, is undesired. And on many occasions these powerful, intense movies win Oscars. To prove my point, I have made a list of the top 5 films I consider to be amazing and extremely well done, yet "Too Intense to Re-Watch."

Sybil (1976)

Monster (2003)

Schindler's List (1993)

What are some movies that make your
"Too Intense to Re-Watch" list?
