Dogtooth (Kynodontas)
Dogtooth, from Greek director Giorgos Lanthimos, depicts a family were three 20 something year-old children are forbidden from leaving home until their dogtooth has fallen out. Taking home schooling to the extreme, the three children do not know anything except what their parents tell them (e.g. they are taught that the word cunt means 'a very large lamp' and that cat's are among the most dangerous man-eating animals).

From its sharp satire to its taboo breaking plot, Dogtooth manages to push the envelope and to maintain the audience involved. While I can't recommend this Dogtooth to everyone (it is extremely dark at times and contains disturbing material; definitely earns its NC-17 rating), I do believe that it worth a look.

Blue Is The Warmest Color 2013,  NC-17)
Blue Is The Warmest Color
Winner of Palme d'Or, the highest prize awarded at the Cannes Film Festival, Blue is the Warmest Color has, since its release, received overwhelming positive critical acclaim and has sparked controversy due to its sexually explicit nature. The film is an epic romance, it spans a decade in the complex romantic relationship between Adèle and Emma.

Even with its three hour length Blue is the Warmest Color does not drag or feel overlong. The lead characters are expertly realized and realistically complex. It is not difficult to become attached to the characters and their relationship. Much of the controversial sex, which in retrospect constitutes a small percentage of time in the three hour long film, is justified as it inevitably becomes fundamental to the plot. Blue is the Warmest Color is a must see for cinephiles and casual movie goers alike.
