Princess
Princess (2006)

Mostly anime, but some parts live action, about the porn industry and an avenging. Danish. Gory. Violent. It has that plot device where a child takes place not to bore and irritate the hell out of the viewers, but to fit alongside the adult themes. Kinda like Del Toro's trademark, except without his stench and geeky fantasy land. No, this is raw animation. And the lead hero/narrator fights bad guys by smashing their face in.

This guy's 2007 film attracted me towards this one. Result: It was rather pointless but well acted and directed.

See, children are evil. Exterminate all of them at once and it will end all wars.

Urbania
Urbania (2000)

Gay urban (You never woulda guessed) tale that's quite interesting in parts, too obvious in others. The director really tries to communicate unfairness for GLBT people, how when compared to straights that have things for granted, life really sucks and it's difficult to enjoy being. I think the beginning is supposed to bring in or attract hetero-thinking people because it seems to be a normal "straight" story with a wicked taste. It's deceiving and ambiguous until the terms "boyfriend" and "him" pop up. I think even the lead actor is straight in real life, he was the only one butch among the gay characters, thus the only attractive one.

I don't like the thought of "your side must be disrespected in order for ours to gain equality" - it was difficult taking the moral seriously and not as just bitching. But characters were interesting, some of what's covered in the Flixster synopsis is only heard of and not really seen; there's a lot of storytelling.
