"You would say it is necessary to stylize a torture method? Why is that? You think a Kubrik sort of dungeon would be more effective than the standard atark/dank?"
I hate to be advocating any type of torture yet I do feel that mental collapse, the real idea of torture, comes around much more quickly when one is completely surrounded by elements they find well... confusing (off shades, bizarre patterns, etc)
Combined with the pure element of regulated torture (those things we're only told about), I feel as though any secondary aesthetic abuse would catalyze the effects, rather quickly in fact.
But then again it surely has to involve the individual - I happen to like the chaotically surreal.
