Vera Chytilová - Vyhnání z ráje AKA Expulsion from Paradise (2001)



Description: The uncompromising director Věra Chytilová, well-known for her harshly mocking attacks on people's failings and foibles, has created a new filmic parable on human weakness with Vyhnání z ráje (Expulsion from Paradise, 2001), her most recent film. Although fully within the Chytilová tradition of biting moral fable, the film has had a lukewarm reception from Czech and international critics.

The main story of Vyhnání z ráje concerns Rosta, a film director (Bolek Polívka), who is shooting a film at a nudist beach.[2] Everyone in the film crew has different ideas about the genre and style of the film being shot: The director tries to create an artistic work, an experimental metaphor about Adam and Eve; the Russian producer Igor (Milan Šteindler) hopes to see an erotic lovestory produced; and the screenwriter (played by theatre director and dramatist J A Pitínský) aims to express his positive philosophy about humanity through the film.

Miklós Jancsó - Vizi privati, pubbliche virtù aka Private Vices, Public Virtues (1976)



The son of Emperor Franz Josef of Austria, Crown Prince Rudolf, is believed to have shot his female lover and himself in a tragic suicide pact in 1882 in Mayerling. Due to Imperial cover-ups, the full story may never be known. This story has been filmed several times, in French in 1935 and in English in 1968. Hungarian director Miklos Jancso recreates those events for his own purposes, continuing his favored theme of the rejection of paternal authority. In the film, which has very little dialog, Rudolf is a good-natured pan-sexual golden boy, who cavorts on his rural estate with a host of beautiful, aristocratic lovers and friends of both sexes. He refuses to leave his country idyll even though he has been ordered to by the Emperor, his father. Despite the fact that for a large part of the film, attractive young people go about unclothed and engaging in erotic encounters, the mood is one of melancholy rather than prurience. The Prince is a political liberal who wishes to arrange things so that the Emperor will arrest him, creating a public scandal which will provide a rallying point for the opposition. Instead, when the expected troops come, Rudolf's sensuous friends loyally ward off the Imperial officers, humiliating them in the process. The result is that the guests, the Prince and a hermaphrodite friend are killed by newly arrived Imperial reinforcements, and the now-familiar official story of murder and suicide is concocted for public consumption. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

This is one trip you’ll enjoy over and over again…if those bicycle seats could only talk!

Augusto Martínez Torres - Les pel·lícules del meu pare Aka The Movies of my Father (2007)



Perhaps the most unconventional and egocentric film I have ever seen as tells about a man that just a few weeks ago passed away and his daughter discovering that he used to do movies that he never talked about them to her. The twist is that the man that was a producer/director is Augusto Martínez Torres and the real director/writer of the movie is also him. In the fictional narrative the daughter wants to learn more about the films and wants to recuperate the negatives, so she gets in touch with people that worked with her father, that actually are friends and co-workers of the real director. The movie is full of what it looks like gratuitous nakedness by the beautiful lead actress, but then at the end it makes sense as everything in the movie and in the father films is sexually related. Including a long unconventional lesbian interest sub-plot that the leading character has with a girl at the film institute where she’s researching her father films. ~ Storyteller

Arnaud Desplechin - Comment je me suis disputé... (ma vie sexuelle) aka My Sex Life... or How I Got Into an Argument (1996)



synopsis - AMG:
In this satiric comedy-drama from France, Paul (Mathieu Amalric) is an assistant professor of philosophy disenchanted with teaching and distracted enough that he can't (or won't) finish the dissertation that would allow him to become a full professor. Esther (Emmanuelle Devos) has been his girlfriend for nearly a decade; while he's no longer happy with the relationship, he has trouble working up the courage to break it off. He's smitten with Sylvia (Marianne Denicourt), the lover of his best friend Nathan (Emmanuel Salinger); Paul and Sylvia had a brief fling two years ago, and he can't get her out of his mind. However, once Paul gives Esther her walking papers, he starts chasing after Valerie (Jeanne Balibar), while also keeping his eye on Patricia (Chiara Mastroianni), the girlfriend of his cousin (and roommate) Bob (Thibault de Montalembert). It's hard to imagine Paul having much time to think about anything else amidst all this romantic tumult, but when Rabier (Michel Vuillermoz), a former friend, gets a top spot in Paul's department, it leads to an ongoing argument that both adds to and reflects the turmoil of his romantic life. Amalric's performance earned him a 1997 Cיsar Award as Most Promising Young Actor. -- Mark Deming

Naki Yurter - Intikam kadini AKA The Turkish 'I Spit On Your Grave' (1979)



"This film is one of the highlights in a string of Turkish Erotic Cinema spanning from the early 1974 to 1980. Most of these films were seized and destroyed but amazingly a few survived.

Zerrin Dogan carved quite an impressive career for herself in this genre so much so that she was credited in the Guinness book for having completed almost 40 films in one year.

The film begins with her rape by an evil band of henchmen who kill her father and steal her dignity. After contemplating suicide she decides to seek retribution and we see the fascinating transformation from innocence to a woman of vengeance.

This film is presented in original Turkish language with Eng subtitles."

Lucio Fulci - All'onorevole piacciono le donne AKA The Eroticist (1972)



Description: "Though today he is revered for his graphic horror films, writer-director Lucio Fulci got his start in comedy. With this in mind, The Eroticist makes perfect sense — it continues the delirious stylistic inventiveness of 'Perversion Story' and 'A Lizard in a Woman's Skin', yet its bawdy humor fits in perfectly with his origins in the cinema. The nonsensical English title implies that the film is a cash-in on William Friedkin's The Exorcist, yet the film — originally titled The Senator Likes Women! — dates from a year before the American blockbuster. Make no mistake about it: this is as far removed as imaginable for the horror genre, at least in terms of content, although the sharp satirical barbs at the Catholic Church and Italian politics fits in comfortably with many of his better known works.
Comedic performer Lando Buzzanca is ideal in the lead, conceived as a satire of the prominent Italian politician Colombo — great effort was made to make the actor resemble the real life politician, and while the gag will inevitably be lost on American audiences, one can't help but admire Fulci for his fearless tenacity, a quality that inevitably landed the film, and its co-writer/director, in a great deal of hot water. Fulci doesn't stop at lampooning conservative politics, however; he has plenty of venom for the Catholic Church, too. As embodied by loudmouth American actor Lionel Stander (Cul De Sac), the Church represents a fount of misogyny and greed for power. The Stander character instills these ethics into the painfully repressed Buzzanca character, and as he begins to question these beliefs and enjoy himself the Church finds itself in a compromised situation that may result in his being "canonized" (i.e., killed and embalmed in wax!) and made into a Saint. The broad political/religious satire may not seem unduly daring today, but it was very strong stuff for its period and much of the humor continues to play well.
As mentioned above, the film's satirical elements go hand in hand with the deliberately stylized approach. Beginning with Perversion Story in 1968, Fulci's films began to be more and more experimental — the surreal, Daliesque dream sequences of A Lizard in a Woman's Skin, for example, find their way into this film's aesthetic. Buzzanca's mental "blackouts" allow Fulci to play with this technique, as in the scene in which the character imagines an ancient piece of statuary coming to life, as he envisions a soldier astride a beautiful naked woman, or the scene in which he imagines the French ambassador's wife completely naked save for silver dollars over her nipples and a wad of cash covering her genitals. Though the film arguably loses some steam and some of its sting in the final act, The Eroticist still stands as one of Fulci's most accomplished and entertaining works." - eccentric-cinema.com

John Lamb - Sex Freaks (1974)



There is this porno-mondo I've been wanting to see for YEEEEAARS ever since seeing the trailer on one of Something Weird's Dragon Art Theater porn trailer VHS compilations in the mid 90s. It's this 1974 film called SEX FREAKS, and I'd pretty much given up on it until a couple of weeks ago I was at the After hours site and just happened across the fact that they put it out on DVD in July 2009! I was quite surprised!
Sex Freaks is a catalog of all things kinky – voyeurism, nymphomania, necrophilia, sadomasochism – with a few unusual novelties thrown in along the way (sex in a carwash, at a bullfight, underwater, in the snow) this unusual example of a Sex-Shockumentary posits that the Devil is responsible for our deviant ways!

Boy, you get a little older and you find yourself saying, "They just don't make 'em like they used to," even about adult movies. Back in the late '70's/early '80's the films did actually resemble what most people would call an honest-to-gosh movie. One even went to a theater to see them!
