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

SYNOPSIS:
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

Incest theme on film with alot of seduction

The single mother of two daughters meets a guy and falls in love with him. Then she brings him home to meet her daughters. One of the daughters has a secret related to her new step dad. The other daughter finds her new step dad very sexy.

Meanwhile, The father brings a son into the mix. Karen Summer really pushes all the buttons of seduction. Also, she practices on the son with plans to get the step dad.

Ron Jeremy plows away at the secretary in one scene. Him and Karen Summers really stand out as the sexiest members of this film. Unlike TABOO, The parent figures do not provide the best acting abilities.

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

http://i25.lulzimg.com/b3cc8e.jpg

http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/5333/imdbimage.jpg

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)

http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/3894/383c.jpg

http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/5333/imdbimage.jpg

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

http://img809.imageshack.us/img809/6286/intikadi1.jpg

http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/5333/imdbimage.jpg

"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."

Servien and Marbeuf are two crooks who try to get some hired girls to keep a rich prince busy whilst they want to steal his jewels. They engage a girl (skinny) but have not much confidence in her. She engages two servants to help her with her heavy duties. (One is Cathy Castel, the other one is blackhaired and a Veronique Cousteau lookalike; she might be XNK0354.) Together they amuse the prince and his assistant, mostly in the swimming pool inside the villa and in various beds. For some reason the two crooks put Castel in bondage, but she manages to escape. However the crooks have been fooled because the diamonds were fake. All ends well.

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!

Review

Quote:
As we all often learn in life, it's the little, simple things that can have a big impact. Bénazéraf doesn't go for complexity here, and his plot is pretty simple for the most part. Yet Sexus does leave it's mark on the mind, and sometimes a director can communicate things without even realising it. With it's odd framing device, throbbing score and luminous imagery, Bénazéraf lets us in on his obsessions, and if you are in the right frame of mind, you can dive right in with him into the whirlpool. I look forward to covering more of his films in these pages. Though not quite in the realm of some of the more obvious Sinema covered here, the blood pumping under the filmic flesh would appear to be the same. It's a hip, jazzy feast for the senses, if you can track it down.

http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/5333/imdbimage.jpg



All About Anna is a Danish film released in 2005, directed by Jessica Nilsson and starring Gry Bay and Mark Stevens. The film is explicit in its exploration of sexual relationships. It avoids being classified as pornography, however, through avoidance of closeup views of genital/genital contact.
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.
All About Anna tells the story of Anna (Gry Bay), a single woman who seeks to maintain an active sex life while staying clear of romantic relationships. When a former boyfriend (Mark Stevens) shows up, she starts wondering how much longer she can maintain her emotional independence, and if that's even what she wants. At the same time, she is offered a job as costume designer on a French theatre, where the local stage actors Pierre (Morten Schelbech) and Sophie (Ovidie) offer new amorous temptations.
