Nymphomaniac: Vol. 1 is available on VOD, but if you can't get enough of sexually explicit drama, we've got a marathon that's sure to heat up your weekend. As American movies live under the tyranny of the MPAA, it might not surprise you to learn that each of these titles--from a lesbian love story to a threesome roadtrip and another nympho tale--are all from foreign countries.
Diary of a Nymphomaniac (2008) Like von Trier's two-part hardcore erotic drama, this Spanish film follows the life story of a woman who is fueled by her desire to experience sex in all its forms. Belén Fabra stars as Valére, the titular nymphomaniac. Hungry to experience all the joys of life--per her grandmother's advice--Valére seeks out lovers and sexual experimentation in search of love, pleasure and happiness. This drama is stuffed to the brim with steamy scenes. It's punctuated by darkness, but also delivers an uplifting story of self-discovery. Leonardo Sbaraglia and Geraldine Chaplin co-star; Christian Molina directs.
Blue Is the Warmest Color (2013) The NC-17 rated French film that got tongues wagging around the world can now be viewed from the comfort of your couch…or bed. Now you can see what all the fuss over that long and graphic lesbian love scene is all about. Adèle Exarchopoulos stars as young Adele, a school girl whose dalliances with boys lack passion, leading her to look for love elsewhere--like with that striking blue-haired girl she can't get out of her head. Léa Seydoux co-stars; Abdel Kechiche directs.
Y Tu Mamá También (2001) This Mexican drama from celebrated (and now Oscar-winning) director Alfonso Cuarón focuses on the bond between two rich teen boys, and how it fuels a road trip with an older woman that is studded with sexual adventures. Maribel Verdú, Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna star; Alfonso Cuarón directs.
