Since the earliest film images were created, sex and nudity have been part of cinema - audiences have been both titillated and horrified by what they've seen. But who is to decide what is appropriate to show on screen? This episode examines how filmmakers, the film industry and special interest groups have attempted to both regulate and set free the images that filmmakers create and who gets to see them.
The most controversial sex scenes are the ones that really push the envelope - from Lolita to Secretary to Nine Songs. This final episode has everything from real sex on screen to S&M and fetish. The films that are explored exemplify how cinema can be used to express the vast range of human sexuality.
In this exquisitely made and terrifying horror film, the age-old concepts of witchcraft, black magic and possession are innovatively brought together to tell the intimate and riveting story of one family's frightful unravelling in the New England wilderness circa 1630.
