Mature animation...anyone?

As much as I love all types of animation, sometimes I wish there were more dark material out there. Animation isn't just for children and family films. Maybe one day the medium will break through to adults in the form of films that sport 15 and 18 ratings. Imagine that! I know you can find anime films with those ratings but I'm talking more western 2d and CG. It doesn't even have to be dark, just more mature. And please don't misunderstand me, I do love fun and everything that comes with it (one of my favourite 3D films is Cloudy). I just feel that a little variation would feel like fresh air just punched me in the lungs.

Here are two great examples of animation being used to approach more mature concepts. I love this guys work, he's called Grzegorz Jonkajtys and is a professional animator and director. I've also included the trailer for his newest film at the bottom for anyone interested.
