You said it's not torture, just molestation.. which is still a crime
It's psychological and emotional torture
for wolverine to watch yukio basically rape an innocent woman is in no way heroic.

I'm all for exploring sexuality and his violence, and other adult ideas.
But knowing Aronofsky's history with such subjects in his films, I think it would've come off too demented and uncomfortable.

Wolverine has the animal in him, but above all, he's still a hero.
It would only come off demented and uncomfortable to those hanging on to the kid-friendly Wolverine established in the cartoon (& sadly the Origin film).

This Wolverine kills for a living, in Tokyo.

Everything he does in this story not only works because of its connections to the comic but because it depicts what Wolverine's life would really have been like had he once roamed the streets of urban Japan. There's not a single moment that feels forced or "comic-booky".

He kills, he loves, he drinks, he has sex, he makes mistakes, he learns things, etc.

Above all, he behaves like we would. Like a real person.
