La Petite mort 1995, Unrated)
La petite mort means little death, a French term for orgasm. In this erotic family drama, a young photographer is obsessed with the faces of men having "little deaths," who is under the impression of the negativity of his father. The film explores the relationship with family and self-esteem. La Petite Mort is one of Ozon's more mature films.
Weekend 2011, Unrated)
See the Sea 1998, Unrated)
Swimming Pool 2003, R)
Lust and crime, those two never fail being together. In this erotic, bilingual thriller, we are introduced to two very different females, one conservative and mature, one promiscuous and troublesome. When things went wrong, they started to have complication. It's a good film that engages you and makes you feel like you are living with the two characters in a French mansion. The sexual tension was refreshing within the film and the suspense left me breathless. FranÃ§ois Ozon's depiction of sex and thrill is amazing like no others.
Une robe d'été (A Summer Dress) 1996, Unrated)
A cutesy little film about the sexual adventures of a young gay man in the summer near a beach. The film is very simple, a man who disliked his flamboyant boyfriend acting femininely, decided to go to the woods nearby and encounter a mysterious woman who allowed him to discover a different side of him. It's very explicit but yet has a great deal of meaning within. FranÃ§ois Ozon was a genius at directing short films like these, it's an enjoyable LGBT film.
Naked Lunch 1991, R)
Erghh, very unusual and surrealistic. It has everything that you need to make a good film: Sex,violence, drugs, profanity. It's not an easy film to watch, but certainly one of the cultest films. David Cronerberg was a master at creating creepy special effects, this film will give you nightmares for sure.
Heavenly Creatures 1994, R)
Amélie 2001, R)
Bad Education (La Mala educación) 2004, NC-17)
Repulsion 1965, Unrated)
Probably the second best Psychological thriller ever!!! (Psycho is still my fav) The story follows a woman named Carole with androphobia that has to deal with being confined in a tiny apartment, gradually descent into madness. The film has many symbolic imageries such as the cracking of the wall, the rotten rabbit and the razor. Men are seen as the evil beings in Carole's eyes, thus the contrasting juxtaposition of the apartment and the church filled with nuns. The film can be a really good example of psychology analysis: Carole's disorder was not developed in just one day, but the constant invasion of space by her sister's boyfriend and the reinforcement of her work environment plus the abandonment of her sister lead to her illness became more severe, resulted in the tragic events.
Belle de Jour 1968, R)
One of the most amazing surrealistic film after Un Chien Andalou, It's so beautifully directed, every scene in the film blended so well together. The acting was so natural, Catherine shines as Severine. There are so much subtext and sexual innuendos but yet there is nothing graphic. I can't express how much I appreciate the direction of Bunuel. One of the best films from the French Cinema.
Café com Leite (You, Me and Him) 2007, Unrated)
I am stunned, It's one of the best short films I have ever seen. Tears just went pouring out of my eyes. It seemed like a simple little film with a lot of the things unexplained, but I enjoyed the rawness of the acting. The editing was great, so did the soundtrack. I loved the long shot near the end, it made the film so much sadder. A must see.
Kenneth Anger - Fireworks 1947, Unrated)
Querelle 1982, R)
Lost Highway 1997, R)
A masterpiece with the usual Lynch style. Strange structure of narratives and weird camera angles. A film about sex, violence and insanity, with many little twists intertwine. Quite confusing as there are no direct interpretation of the story, all we know is that it's a neo-noir psychological thriller, maybe with some supernatural elements too.
Shortbus 2006, Unrated)
The Dreamers 2004, NC-17)
20 Centimeters (20 Centimetres) (20 centímetros) 2005, Unrated)
Visually stunning, somewhat weird but colourful. It's a comedy that is hard to describe, but it's a scrutiny on the world of transexuals, plus it's a musical, what a combination!!!! There's lots of symbolism and subtext, how a transsexual prostitute views the world and the contrast of the harsh reality was impressive.
Blow Job 1963, Unrated)
Crash 1996, NC-17)
Baise-Moi 2000, Unrated)
Porn Porn Porn.... I kinda have a mixed feeling toward this film, I don't know whether it's art or just porn since sex is becoming more like art in this day and age. Acting was flat, some of the shots were quite clever, rape scene was realistic. Good looking cast but I don't know if this can help the film to receive a higher rating. I loved the feminism in the film but maybe there are other ways to show it.
