Review: Raw photo

Review: Raw

While playing at film festivals last year, the hype over Raw was insane. Writer/director Julia Ducournau's coming-of-age horror/cannibal drama purportedly caused audience members to faint, to vomit, to leave screenings in distress. These ar...

 
 
Review: We Are the Flesh photo

Review: We Are the Flesh

Reviewing We Are the Flesh from writer/director Emiliano Rocha Minter is tricky. On the one hand, it's a deeply flawed film aimed at a limited audience. It's transgressive in the extreme, sexually explicit bordering on pornographic, nonsens...

 
 
Review: Elle photo

Review: Elle

Elle has been billed as a rape-comedy, but that's a misnomer. It's a comedy in the classical sense given the events of the story, but it's not necessarily funny (there are funny scenes, though). And yes, it's about rape. Elle has been laude...

 
 
Review: Tampopo photo

Review: Tampopo

Prior to this week, the last time I saw Juzo Itami's 1985 food comedy Tampopo was in the mid-90s. I remembered so little of the movie save for the fact that I enjoyed it. Some isolated scenes are easy to recall, though. There's an etiquette...

 
 
Fifty Shades Darker photo

Here's the darker trailer for Fifty Shades Darker

I read the trilogy, I reviewed the original film, and now I'm here to tell you about Fifty Shades Darker. There's honestly not much to say about it. It has the same look as the first one, has the same lack of chemistry its two leads were ve...

 
 
 
Review: The Last Laugh photo

Tribeca Capsule Review: The Last Laugh

As I've gotten older, I've noticed more conversations and thinkpieces about what topics are off-limits for comedians, such as racist jokes, jokes about rape, jokes about The Holocaust, and so on. This might stray into a larger conversation ...

New Magic Mike XXL trailer lays it on very thick

Man, are they having fun at the WB marketing department with Magic Mike XXL. Judging from this new trailer it seems like they've ditched all semblance of taking this seriously like they tried to with the first one. Instead we get #ComeAgain...

 
 
Fifty Super Spot photo

Super Bowl TV spot for Fifty Shades of Grey

In preparation for the Fifty Shades film, which I have no idea which one of us is going to review yet, I started reading the book. Boy, is it far more fan fiction-y than I had realized. It's got some of the worst written sex scenes I've se...

Newest trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey will see you now

So I had to find out about this teaser from my mom. Premiering during last night's Scandal on ABC, my mother felt the need to contact me to ask if I had any more info on it. While I don't want to see my mother that way (as I'm hoping a lot...

First trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey

So, here we are. Although Fifty Shades of Grey will never be the movie you want (but if you wanted straight porn, it's out there already), I can promise this trailer at least captures the tone of your favorite romance/pornography series. S...

Paul Verhoeven looking to direct Oh...

We haven't heard much out of Paul Verhoeven in a long time. The boundary pushing director hasn't made a full film since Black Book in 2006 and his short film Tricked barely got any play outside of his Dutch homeland, which is why ...

 
 
Nymphomaniac: Vol. I photo

Review: Nymphomaniac: Vol. I

In my mind, Lars von Trier doesn't make comedies. The only other von Trier films I've seen are the first two entries in the Depression Trilogy, Antichrist and Melancholia. I enjoyed them all in their own way, but aside from findin...

Trailer: Sex Tape (Red Band)

You know, being one of the youngest guys at my office (at a whopping 27), I encounter a lot of technical questions. I understand 'computer stuff' better than a lot of my older coworkers (many of whom still use Internet Explorer). I'm often...

NSFW: Red band trailer for Filth sure is filthy

James McAvoy stars in Filth as Scottish Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson, a man with a lot of vices who'll do anything to get his way. This red band trailer for Filth is very NSFW, so you can check it out below, along with a poster featur...

 
 
Guilty of Romance Review photo

Review: Guilty of Romance

I greatly enjoyed Himizu, another 2011 Sion Sono film released last week in NYC theaters, but there was something it lacked that I expected from that sort of film: sex. It had the violence (although it was definitely subdued in comparison t...

Trailer for Bad Johnson, a movie about a living... you know

As this trailer started I was rolling my eyes so hard they got a good look at my brain. I mean the lead characters name is Rich Johnson, two euphemisms for penis? This is not going to go well. Just wait until he starts talking to his penis...

SXSW Review: Wetlands

Wetlands came out of Sundance with plenty of buzz for being shocking for its disturbing sexual content and brazen display of sexual acts. It was that movie every year that someone got up and walked out of because they were just so disg...

 
 
Nymphomaniac Trailer photo

First trailer for Nymphomaniac we're allowed to post

We hadn't been able to cover this on the site before, but Nymphomaniac has had a few trailers release and then quickly disappear from the Internet for very distinct, sexy reasons. Most of the ones that popped up in the past were Red Band (...

Michael's 10 Most Unnecessary Nude Scenes of 2013

Some times the film world likes to take things to the extremes, sometimes they just want to see if they can get a way with it, and sometimes they just don't give a flying poo about what they put in their movies as long as people are talking...

Florida children exposed to sex instead of Frozen

I haven't seen it, but the buzz around Frozen leads me to believe it might just be one of those kids movies; a thematically interesting film that doesn't talk down to children. It sounds like a real crowd pleaser, both kids and adults ...

First images of the now delayed Fifty Shades of Grey

The satisfyingly long wait for the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation has been marred with quite a few problems. The script was going through some issues, Charlie Hunnam left the picture (the script may or may not have been a problem), and Jam...

Fifty Shades of Grey loses Charlie Hunnam, needs rewrites

Over the weekend, Universal's Fifty Shades of Grey motion picture (out August 2014 as of now) has been going through a few issues. First of all, Universal hired Patrick Marber to do some quick fine tuning of the script. Shortly thereafter, ...

Nymphomaniac posters show us their 'oh face'

The promotional stuff for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac has been absolutely stellar. They kicked off with a incredibly awesome, yet simple poster, then went into an interesting series of trailers and now finish off (pun intended) ...

 
 
Don Jon Review photo

Review: Don Jon

Our rabid consumption of media informs our lives and habits as much as our upbringing. For Jon, that media obsession is porn. When he isn't debating what number to rate a girl at the club, he is masturbating three times a day. Or five. Or e...

Nymphomaniac is reportedly a five hour long comedy

The Norwegian site Montages are dropping some Nymphomaniac bombs today by revealing that the film is basically a five hour long comedy that will be broken up into two parts. No wonder they couldn't get it all done in time for Cannes. So tha...

Japan Cuts Review: A Woman and War

It's hard to offend me. Really hard. For a while, I thought it might be almost impossible. Not even A Serbian Film offended me (though it greatly disturbed me). At last year's Japan Cuts, I found out I was wrong: I can be offended...

First clip for Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac

Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac will be a long tale about sex. It centers around Joe, a self-diagnosed nymphomaniac who is found by an older man beaten up in an alley and, you know, like you do in those situations, she recounts her life...

Sam Taylor-Johnson directing 50 Shades of Grey

Amidst wild speculation that almost no one in our websites demographic cared about one name has arisen to the top of the pile in the hunt for a director for the 50 Shades of Grey movie. That name is Sam Taylor-Johnson. You can all rela...

BFF Review: Mr. Angel

If someone were to tell you that Buck Angel is a porn star, you'd assume he does gay porn. Just look at the picture of him in the header image. He looks like a butch guy, and a name like Buck Angel is a gay porn star name par excellence. Wh...

Trailer: The To Do List

Ahhh, the teenage sex comedy; so easy to get wrong and yet so good when it's right. Kind of like sex. Which I've had. With women. I mean my wife and only my wife. She reads this so lets make that perfectly clear. I should probably talk abo...

Nymphomaniac to have actors's faces on porn star bodies

Even though many elements of Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac have been closely guarded, a few details have slipped out from producer Louise Vesth. According to Vesth, there will be graphic sex scenes featuring actors Charlotte Gainsbourg, Ste...

Review: Aroused

Aroused is an odd documentary. It's essentially an advertisement for director Deborah Anderson's art book (which she makes sure to plug in the film), and although at times the entire film seems disingenuous, it's hard to deny the emotional ...
