La Petite mort 1995,  Unrated)
La Petite mort
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)
This film is too cute... It's very unusual or just too realistic. I don't know how to describe it but it's very touching, although the conversations were extremely explicit, it revealed more chemistry between the two characters.
See the Sea 1998,  Unrated)
See the Sea
Once again, Ozon explored sexuality and suspension of the humanity. It's an erotic drama that has many depths. It's short but it gives you an uneasy feeling constantly. Nothing was explicitly shown but you could see the symbolism straightaway. The baby was really cute by the way.
Swimming Pool 2003,  R)
Swimming Pool
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. François Ozon's depiction of sex and thrill is amazing like no others.
Une robe d'été (A Summer Dress) 1996,  Unrated)
Une robe d'été (A Summer Dress)
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. François Ozon was a genius at directing short films like these, it's an enjoyable LGBT film.
Naked Lunch 1991,  R)
Naked Lunch
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)
Heavenly Creatures
Stylish, Gothic, Eerie. Winslet's performance was unforgetabble
Amélie 2001,  R)
I don't know if anyone could not like this film, it's a very unique film from Mr. Jeunet. The montages are lovely, sceneries were beautiful. The film successfully captured the mind of Amelie in an fantastic point of view, it's a really lovely film.
Bad Education (La Mala educación) 2004,  NC-17)
Bad Education (La Mala educación)
A movie you have to watch if you like serious drama, it's so complicated than it seemed. The combination of different philosophical elements was blended really well
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.
Polanski's direction style was impressing, despite the age of the film, it was well done and can still deliver the disturbing feeling to the viewers. I personally think that the score was amazingly done, with the sharp notes accompany the violence and Carole's face was just absolutely chilling. And the weird camera angles made the film even more suspenseful, because even though you know Carole is about the kill someone, you can't help but feeling that she wouldn't do so.
Futher more, Catherine Deneuve was incredibly beautiful, mysterious yet stunning.
Belle de Jour 1968,  R)
Belle de Jour
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)
Café com Leite (You, Me and Him)
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)
Kenneth Anger - Fireworks
The surrealism was absolutely fantastic, the metaphor added a few twists to the understanding of the audience. It gives the audience an emotional outburst, the imageries are very powerful.
Querelle 1982,  R)
Beautiful Set Design, filled with the sadness of sunset
Lost Highway 1997,  R)
Lost Highway
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)
Now that's what I called a sexploitation. It's funny, tragic and ultimately touching. Don't forget the "Sexiness" of it
The Dreamers 2004,  NC-17)
The Dreamers
I love artistic films like this one, sex, passion and love is never boring.
20 Centimeters (20 Centimetres) (20 centímetros) 2005,  Unrated)
20 Centimeters (20 Centimetres) (20 centímetros)
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)
Blow Job
Artistic indeed, but painful to watch... It's a dull 20 minutes of looking at a man's face (He's receiving a blow job) It has aesthetic value but it's not meant for everyone.
Crash 1996,  NC-17)
I am literally scared by the graphic representation of sexual fetishes in the film. Intense but well done performances from everyone. Not too sure about the meaning of this film but it has some intense ideas about sex. I enjoyed the references to the famous crashes, but that's about it.
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.
