Good NC-17 movies.

post #1 of 70
Thread Starter 
I realized that I have two NC-17 movies in my collection (only two--I'm not into ****)--Requiem for a Dream and Eyes Wide Shut. Are there any other good/nonblatantly pornographic movies that caught an NC-17 rating?

where did you find an uncut version of "eyes wide shut"?

some other x or nc17 films worth seeing (non ****):
"last tango in paris"
"the evil dead"
"pink flamingos"
"robocop" (criterion-uncut)
"tie me up! tie me down!"
"the wild bunch" (nc17 but reduced to r on appeal)

The internet is your friend (along with a region free DVD player).

you mean you bought a non-american uncut dvd of ews and play it on a region free dvd player? i ask because the internet offers a torrent of answers to my question, of which myself i have not been able to pinpoint.

I think Peter Greenaway's films ususally catch an nc17. I find them all very interesting and entertaining.

There was an informative documentary film on the MPAA rating system. It explained the ways in which the ratings are arbitrary, stupid, and socially regressive.

How about Trainspotting?

Off the top of my head a couple more...

Midnight Cowboy (only X-rated film to win Oscars Best Picture)
Bad Lieutenant (modern noir).

Tango and Wild Bunch are great suggestions.

The Criterion Robocop is unrated, it only adds maybe 20 seconds of additional footage and the sound is terrible (Dolby Digital 2.1). One of the most disappointing Criterion discs I've purchased. Not recommended.

I'll add Kids to the list - a powerful dark film. It's also an interesting period study of urban, teenage life in the mid 90's.

If we are also mentioning 'X' films, Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" is superb. [The novel by Anthony Burgess is also superb].

"This film is not yet rated" received a nc-17 rating but they didn't accept it so technically it's unrated only.

well i'll be horswaggled. i forgot my favorite move, "clockwork orange". probaby too obvious.

aurora project,
that's too bad about robocop. but keep in mind the original sound mix for robocop in 35mm was dolby sr, at best a four channel analog system.

Here's a list from IMBD:
http://www.imdb.com/List?certificate...g=14;USA:NC-17

As daycart1 hinted, one of Greenaway's is listed - The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover. It's certainly something to see.

Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! is listed, too. It's foggy for me. I saw it because it was controversial at the time. I don't really recall if I liked it.

samgotit--that list lists Saw and Scarface, along with Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Were the versions of those shown in theaters edited versions or something?
