1. Sex and Lucia (2001) by Julio Médem with Paz Vega
Sex and Lucia is a spanish drama film written and directed by Julio Médem, and starring Paz Vega and Tristán Ulloa. As suggested by the title, there is a great deal of passionate sexual content surrounding the love story of Lucía and Lorenzo as the plot dissolves into a very lyrical eroticism. The movie features a highly non-linear story line with repeated surreal references to the ocean and beach. The plot depicts the tragic stories that connect all of the film's characters. The film was shot on two separate locations along the Mediterranean coast in Spain and France.

2. Antichrist (2009) by Lars von Trier with Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg
This film by Lars von Trier features a scene of penetrative vaginal intercourse, and also includes graphically violent sexual imagery. Body doubles were used to make the film. It follows horror film conventions and tells the story of a couple who, after the death of their child, retreat to a cabin in the woods where the man experiences strange visions and the woman manifests increasingly violent sexual behaviour. The narrative is divided into a prologue, four chapters and an epilogue. The film was primarily a Danish production but co-produced by companies from six different European countries. It was filmed in Germany and Sweden.

3. All About Anna (2005) by Jessica Nilsson with Gry Bay and Mark Stevens
All About Anna is a Danish film released in 2005. The film is explicit in its exploration of sexual relationships. It is a co-production between Innocent Pictures and Lars von Trier's Zentropa Productions, and is the third of Zentropa's sex films for women, following Constance (1998) and Pink Prison (1999). All three films were based on the Puzzy Power Manifesto developed by Zentropa in 1997.

4. Ken Park (2002) by Larry Clark and Ed Lachman
The screenplay was written by Harmony Korine, who based it on Larry Clark's journals and stories. The film was directed by Larry Clark and Ed Lachman. The film revolves around the abusive and/or dysfunctional home lives of several teenagers, set in the city of Visalia, California. The film was banned in Australia, as the Office of Film and Literature Classification said it contained scenes of "child sexual abuse, actual sex by people depicted as minors and sexualised violence". Cunnilingus, auto-erotic asphyxiation, urination, and group sex acts involving characters that are supposed to be teens are shown explicitly, but the sex is simulated with the exception of one scene showing a young man masturbating. All actors were actually over 18.

5. Caligula (1979) by Tinto Brass
Caligula is an Italian–American biographical film. It was directed by Tinto Brass, with additional scenes filmed by Giancarlo Lui and Penthouse founder Bob Guccione. The film concerns the rise and fall of Roman Emperor Gaius Caesar Germanicus, better known as Caligula. It was written by Gore Vidal, co-financed by Penthouse magazine and produced by Guccione and Franco Rossellini. It stars Malcolm McDowell, Teresa Ann Savoy, Helen Mirren, Peter O'Toole and John Gielgud. It was the first major motion picture to feature both eminent film actors and pornographic scenes. It remains one of the most infamous cult films ever made and remains banned in several countries to this day.Uncut version of this film includes several authentic sex scenes, including penetration, fellatio and ejaculation during the six minutes worth of inserts shot by the film's producer, Bob Guccione.

6. Romance (1999) by Catherine Breillat

7. Destricted (2006) described as seven short art-house porn films
Seven short films by artists and film-makers commissioned to "explore the fine line where art and pornography intersect", it "contains strong, real sex". Destricted official website.
'Impaled' by director Larry Clark shows a casting for a porn film, not with the insecure women often displayed, but instead with insecure young men. 'Balkan Erotic Epic' by director Marina Abramovic is an erotic comedy about myths from the Balkan around the sexual organs. 'House Call' (from Richard Prince) is a vintage sex scene and comes closest to pornography. 'Sync' (Marco Brambilla) only exists out of very fast cuts from different porn films and plays for about two minutes. 'Hoist' (Matthew Barney) is mostly an art film. 'Death Valley' opens with a beautiful shot, but then continues with an 8-minute masturbation scene. 'We Fuck Alone' (Gaspar Noé) has a doll as a main character.

8. Lie with me (2005) by Clement Virgo with Lauren Lee Smith
Lie with Me is a Canadian drama film with graphic sexual content that played at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival. It is based on the novel of the same name by Tamara Berger.

The latest film from Abel Ferrara, one of the most dedicated indie filmmakers working, is 4:44 Last Day on Earth, which presents a story in which the world is about to end. Willem Dafoe and Shanyn Leigh play a couple living in New York, and we watch as they live through what may be their last hours, as the world is supposedly going to end at 4:44 AM the next day. Reviews of the movie weren’t great when it premiered at festivals last year, but this trailer is fairly convincing.

It’s taking me a minute to get past one thing in this trailer, which is that it seems to feature a new song from Tom Waits. That’s not the case, though — the score, and the trailer song are by a guy named Francis Kuipers, who sounds a whole hell of a lot like Waits.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and a video for the song contained therein.

4:44 Last Day on Earth will be released in theaters and on demand on March 23rd.

In a large apartment high above the city lives our couple. They’re in love. She’s a painter, he’s a successful actor. Just a normal afternoon – except that this isn’t a normal afternoon, for them or anyone else. Because tomorrow, at 4:44 am, give or take a few seconds, the world will come to an end far more rapidly than even the worst doomsayer could have imagined. The final meltdown will come not without warnings, but with no means of escape. There will be no survivors. As always, there are those who, as their last cigarette is being lit and the blindfold tightened, will still hope against hope for some kind of reprieve. For a miracle. Not our two lovers. They – like the majority of the Earth’s population – have accepted their fate: the world is going to end.

Here’s the video for ‘Blindfold Blues’ by Francis Kuipers.

The Weinstein Co. has released a trailer for Julian Schnabel‘s Miral, starring Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto. The film covers five decades of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, with Pinto playing a young woman who falls for a political activist (Omar Metwally, Munich) and becomes involved in the Palestine liberation movement. Watch the trailer after the jump.


[via TheMovieBox.Net]

Although this new trailer features slightly less violence and improper language, it otherwise looks pretty similar to the French-subtitled one we posted last summer — right down to the melancholy Tom Waits song that plays over the very end. Miral has since hit several film festivals, starting with Venice last year. It was originally scheduled to open in the U.S. last December, but has been rescheduled for a March 25, 2011 release date.

Disappointingly, early reviews for the film aren’t looking too good — Miral currently holds a worrying 20% on Rotten Tomatoes. (Granted, that’s out of only 15 reviews, but even the positive reviews seem less than enthusiastic.) The consensus seems to be that it’s well-intentioned, but not well-made. Given the breadth of the subject, I wonder if Jebreal’s book would’ve been better served as a miniseries.

Miral is based on a semi-autobiographical novel of the same title by Palestinian journalist Rula Jebreal. Schanbel became involved with the project when Jebreal sent him the book after the two met at a dinner in 2007. They began work on the film later that year, and became a couple during the course of the production. Schnabel has said in interviews that Miral has a personal significance to him: “Coming from my background, as an American Jewish person whose mother was president of Hadassah [the Women's Zionist Organization of America] in 1948, I figured I was a pretty good person to try to tell the story of the other side.”

Hiam Abbas (The Visitor) and Yasmine Al Masri (Caramel) also star in the film, as Miral’s teacher and a prisoner, respectively. Vanessa Redgrave and Willem Dafoe appear in small roles.

Official synopsis:

From Julian Schnabel, Academy Award© nominated director of The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Before Night Falls and Basquiat, comes Miral, the story of four women whose lives intertwine in the starkly human search for justice, hope and reconciliation amid a world overshadowed by conflict, rage and war. The story begins in war-torn Jerusalem in 1948 when Hind Husseini (HIAM ABBASS, The Visitor, Amreeka) opens an orphanage for refugee children that quickly becomes home to 2000 orphans. One of the children is seventeen year old Miral (FRIEDA PINTO, Slumdog Millionaire) who arrived at the orphanage 10 years earlier, following her mother’s tragic death. On the cusp of the Intifada resistance, Miral is assigned to teach at a refugee camp where she falls for a fervent political activist, Hani (OMAR METWALLY, Munich, Rendition) and finds herself in a personal battle that mirrors the greater dilemma around her: to fight like those before her or follow Mama Hind’s defiant belief that education will pave a road to peace.
