I must see, like, all of these.
Like the List.
Made me realize how many really great movies were actually" taboo-breakers".
Tarnation, Birth, Gummo, in the realm of the senses, the boys in the band come to my mind
Last Tango in Paris? Why?
L'Age D'Or was quite a target in the days it's been shot
Romper Stomper and Gummo both could use a place on this list.
also add 1974 made 'the night porter' of liliana cavani. nice list.
eyes wide shut; hearts and minds
Goodbye Uncle Tom (1971) one of controversial movie too
Men Behind The Sun has been added to the Auteurs.
apparently aladdin was considered incredibly racist, especially because of the line in the opening song about murdering et cetera, and then "it's barbaric, but hey, it's home."
why is aladdin included in the list? i am just curious.. thanks :D
thanks for the comments, guys. i'll keep the list going!
Great list! I spit on your grave is now on here. I also recommenced Hated, Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan and That's Just Wrong (also Sex, Blood and Mutilation but sadly not yet on here)
and Jack Smith's Flaming Creatures ("Due to its surreal, graphic depiction of sexuality, the film was seized by the police at its premiere, and was officially determined to be obscene by a New York Criminal Court"-Wikipedia)
Excellent list. Kudos and thank you.
you should add Makavejev's Sweet Movie ("coprophilia, emetophilia, fondling, and footage of remains of the Polish Katyn Massacre victims. The film was banned in many countries, or severely cut. It is still banned in many countries to this day.-Wikipedia) and Mysteries of the Organism - juxtaposes orgasms with communists
love that you included aladdin!
Nice job. From the political to what some may argue is the definition of art or obscenity, your list presents a really well thought out starting point for serious debate.
