Have you seen The Lieutenant of Inishmore? It's not King Lear, but is an amazing contemporary account of the madness of violence. It's sometimes brutally violent, but always in the service of art rather than mere cheap thrills.

I've always been taken aback by the rawness of Lear too. It's on another level from Hamlet or MacBeth, and really nothing compares.
