It will go down as the year Italy discovered gross-out. Several movies in competition at the Venice Film Festival, which ran Aug. 30-Sept. 9, had audiences squirming. Take the South Korean film The Isle. One woman fainted at a screening, and another threw up, thanks to such images as fishhooks caught in genitalia (ouch!). The Portuguese film Phantom, about a young stud searching for same-sex kicks, had spectators running for the exits after a toilet scene featuring graphic sex.
