I almost forgot Battle Royale. It's a blistering comment of the Japanese education system and the expectations on students when they turn 15.
Battle Royale II was ok (I'd classify that as more action), but I found it VERY heavy-handed with it's message about American foreign policy.

Blood should have an effect on us, it's a sign that a potential threat is nearby (for those aware enough to realise it).
It doesn't matter how far back those perceptions are pushed, the instinctive reaction should stay the same.
Getting used to the sight of blood, of mutilated remains, and the various other stuff you see in horror movies, is a clear sign of them twisting your mind up.
