Have you ever been so disgusted by a movie you got up and left?

Have you ever been so disgusted or disturbed while watching a movie that you got up and left? — Marci Ankrom
While on duty? Never. That’s not say I haven’t been disgusted or disturbed (sometimes by the sight of bloody violence, sometimes by the sight of Tom Green cavorting with elephant semen in Freddy Got Fingered). Or that I don’t reflexively look away during moments of what are, for me, excruciating. (In the case of something like Saw and its sadistic follow-ups, I just try not to win that particular assignment.) But when I’m watching a movie with the intention of writing about it, I’m there for the duration, if only so you don’t have to be.

(Got a movie-related question for Lisa or Owen? Post it here.)
