The Most Controversial Movies on Netflix

'The Killer Inside Me'
Starring: Casey Affleck, Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson, Bill Pullman

Based on Jim Thompson's cult novel of the same name, The Killer Inside Me was largely skewered by critics and audiences alike for being overly violent, especially against women. The film's narrator, Lou Ford (Affleck), is a sadistic sheriff and he shares his thoughts as he beats and murders men and women alike. But the scenes where females are treated to violence seem to last a little longer and are much more graphic. Director Michael Winterbottom has a long, impressive resume and The Killer Inside Me is beautifully. But it's about a despicable man and a nightmare to get through.
