    the cinema that infuriates me is poorly made cinema, particulry bad films rewarded with huge box office success.  I was infuriated by the epic stupidity of Transformers 2, the mind numbing dullardry of the 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

    Movies that made me angry on purpose (not by being terrible) include:

    Dogville, Lars Von Trier’s damning avant garde vignettes of the ugliest side of the American Dream.

    Monster, and the documentaries about Charlize Theron’s character.  I was so angry at both the main character and the whole world she inhabits that I lost track of who to direct my disgust towards.

    Starship Troopers, the movie’s satire of rah-rah military heroism via fascism was so effective, I found myself pretty much horrified at all the protagonists until I realized it was a send up.
