All the Directors films from this collection have shown great courage. They took a difficult topic, which is so easy to cross the invisible boundary that separates real art from banality and mediocrity. And they did, which we are glad. We did not include in the post the obvious like "Nine and a half weeks" or "Nymphomaniac", and chose a more recent or less known movies.
Site warning: before viewing it is better to put the kids to bed early or even send to grandma.
The Maid Agasshi
Forty six million three hundred forty five thousand two hundred fifteen
A true delight for the eyes and for the mind — a story in which the Director reveals your sophisticated the idea not once, and beauty — the beauty of women, interiors and outfits. This film is simply impossible to look away. Park Chan-Wook, the Director and screenwriter of the acclaimed "Oldboy" masterfully balances on the thin line, forcing us to unconditionally admire that in a different film we might seem a vulgarity. It is noticeable that since the "Oldboy" is a little heavy and somewhat overweight, he grew up, and it's wonderful.
House of tolerance L'apollonide (Souvenirs de la maison close)

Paris public building of the early XX century, surviving the last days. Luxury, expensive clothes, beautiful music — all this serves only as a cover for debauchery.

And behind the walls of a brothel in a rapidly changing world, and the echoes of disasters and wars will soon fly here.

Beautiful, rich, exquisite Chinese meets French. Humiliated crying poverty of their families, the girl dreams of passion and wealth (she is wearing the only dress she's great, and at least a little to decorate it, belt with a belt). Racial prejudices (and she thinks the Chinese below them), the difference in age and completely unacceptable for the time behavior does not embarrass her, because it brings in money for the family, and in addition, she believes doesn't love him. The film is amazing, filled with despair, shame, but some faint sense of elusive happiness.

The story is dramatic, but oddly reassuring, because it's all about passion, the force of which is not less than the pursuit of life.
Blue velvet Blue Velvet
Sixty one million three hundred twenty three thousand six hundred fifty one
Perhaps the most beautiful and memorable film of Lynch. And the easiest and in the case of Lynch, it is rather an advantage than a disadvantage, because there is less unexplained events and motives than usual. It is a detective story with a sensual Noir atmosphere, fascinating music Badalamenti, the beauty of each frame and colorful characters (Kyle MacLachlan and Isabella Rossellini).
Bitter moon Bitter Moon
Nine million four hundred sixty thousand four hundred eighty two
Director Roman Polanski is a master of intricate and psychologically complex stories. "Bitter moon" is one of the best films of a film Director — just like that.
