Closer was one of the most violent movies I can remember. Although I can only recall one actual act of physical violence, I was amazed at the level of torment the characters put each other through with only words. In my personal experience, I have not had any confrontational arguments last that long or be that intense. I would end then by walking out, or running away but these guys just kept dishing it out. I was worn out by dialog. Amazing work in direction and acting. And that song just fits it all so well. " I can't take my eyes of you (the blowers daughter)" I could not take my eyes off the screen or get my mind off the movie. I must see it again just to see if I can observe it as well as feeling it. Rated "I" for intense and incredible.
