These questions about violence seem interesting.
 
I would just like to throw Mike Leigh's _Naked_ into the list.  It reminded
me of Edward Bond's _Saved_: Bond is a playwright who says (in his
introduction to _Lear_, a far more brutal and vicious version of the
Shakespeare play) that he "writes about violence as naturally as Jane Austen
wrote about manners."  Also I wondered about comparisons with Camus'
_L'Etranger_.
 
Sorry for the literariness of this post (:.
