29. Love (2015)
Half of Gaspar Noé’s 2015 film takes place in a bed, so you can imagine where that inevitably leads. One critic said, “There’s a difference between being naked before an audience and showing them your [private part], and Noé does the latter.” Love brings it to you in 3-D.
28. Caligula (1979)
Caligula pushed the limits when it came to portraying the real-life Roman Emperor, and included group sex, penetration, and (ahem again) climax. IMDb’s parental guide clearly states, “No child should ever watch it, and several adults will have trouble with it. The film’s risque content is considered pornographic in nature, with several hardcore inserts intended to sensually arouse, but really turn out to be quite disturbing.”
27. The Brown Bunny (2003)
In this obscure film featured at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003, Chloë Sevigny’s character performs oral sex on her real-life boyfriend and screen partner Vincent Gallo. Infamous film critic Roger Ebert called it the worst film in Cannes history, but gave it a thumbs up once he saw a re-edited version.
26. A Real Young Girl (1976)
Even though every actor in this film is of legal age, the scenes can get rather uncomfortable, especially knowing that they are really happening on set during filming. This coming-of-age story about a girl named Alice might be a little too uncomfortable to watch for the average viewer.
25. Lie With Me (2005)
If Lauren Lee Smith’s character seemed too close to her co-star Eric Balfour in Lie With Me, it is probably because they really were. Said Smith, “It’s controversial, but it’s also something everyone will understand. It’s about a woman who is not so comfortable with the emotional side of relationships but is so good with the physical.
