Crash (1996)


What is it about?
Since a road accident left him with serious facial and bodily scarring, a former 'TV scientist' has become obsessed by the marriage of motor car technology with what he sees as the 'raw sexuality' of car-crash victims. The scientist, along with a crash victim he has recently befriended, sets about performing a series of sexual acts in a variety of motor vehicles, either with other crash victims or with prostitutes who they contort into the shape of trapped-corpses.

Twilight (2008)


What is it about?
TWILIGHT is an action-packed, modern day love story between a vampire and a human. Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) has always been a little bit different, never caring about fitting in with the trendy girls at her Phoenix high school. When her mother remarries and sends Bella to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she doesn’t expect much of anything to change. Then she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a boy unlike any she’s ever met. Intelligent and witty, he sees straight into her soul. Soon, Bella and Edward are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance. Edward can run faster than a mountain lion, he can stop a moving car with his bare hands - and he hasn’t aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he’s immortal. But he doesn’t have fangs, and he doesn’t drink human blood; Edward and his family are unique among vampires in their lifestyle choice. To Edward, Bella is that thing he has waited 90 years for - a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. But what will Edward & Bella do when James (Cam Gigandet), Laurent (Edi Gathegi) and Victoria (Rachelle Lefevre), the Cullens’ mortal vampire enemies, come to town, looking for her?

Why do you think that 'Twilight', 'Gummo' and 'Fahrenheit 9/11' are controversials ? The rest is pretty interesting. Too bad you didn't finish the list.

My suggestions :

- Crash. I really liked it but it is definitely an acquired taste... For example, it starts with 3 sex scenes with no connection whatsoever so you have been warned...

- Irréversible. Not a favorite of mine but still a good movie. Really heavy with the notorious 15 minute long rape scene and the scene with a fire extinguisher....

- Twilight. I guess you're trying to be humorous by saying it is controversial. Honestly, I thought this first movie was not bad at all. Nothing amazing but it was watchable. In my opinion, the love and hatred towards this franchise is really exagerated. It is just an average teenage vampire flick, nothing more, nothing less.

- Bonnie and Clyde. it was shocking and controversial BACK THEN not anymore. Still, it is a classic and pretty good movie. Definitely worth a look.

- The Texas Chainsaw massacre. It sounds horrifying but if you are used to horror movies, it is not really hardcore. Like Bonnie and Clyde, when it came out, it was shocking but not for nowadays standards. Furthermore, the ending is just a real mess. Still, it remains a classic and it is pretty good.

- Kids. indeed, a rather shocking movie but I didn't really enjoy it. In my opinion, it gives a very stereotypical view of teenagers and it really annoyed me. Still, it remains an interesting movie.

- Last Tango in Paris. Even 40 years later, it is still a weird movie. Imagine Marlon Brando starring in an erotical mindf*ck... I really liked this flick but it is definitely an acquired taste.

- Fahrenheit 9/11. Again, what is so controversial about this movie? I'm a big fan of Michael Moore and I really enjoyed this movie, even though 'Bowling for Columbine' is even better.

- Freaks. A really weird movie but I really liked it. I have never seen something similar before and I wonder if they could make a movie like this nowadays.

Like johanlefourbe, I don't see what's controversial about Twilight. :P

Highly recommend The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (which by the way isn't a true story). Freaks is really good too.

Gummo was pointless from what I managed to watch of it, and Cannibal Holocaust was so insanely boring I never got to any of the things that are supposedly "good" about it.

the taxas chainsaw massacre(the original one, of course) is great as a classic horror film, it's pretty fine i think.

and i would really recomment to stay as far as posible from twilight. really

nice list - here are my thoughts

Cannibal Holocaust - just a tedious movie...more boring than Salo which kept the interest through its depravity and ongoing desecnet into hell

Men Behind The Sun - yes some scenes are very graphic and well sick but its got a sense of a story behind it - worth seeing

Irreversible - the rape scene was boring the fire extinguisher stuff...ok...but this sort of stuff was done far far better in A Serbian Film

Texas Chainsaw Massacre - apart from a couple of iconic moments its ...boring

Kids will just re-affirm that 99% of teenagers should be killed
