Some of the movies remain memorable whereas some are quite controversial. Here is the list of notorious movies:
The Last Temptation of Christ (1988)
A bombarding flick from one of the prominent directors Martin Scorsese’s list of films like Sex, Violence, Jesus Christ is a pure delight to watch. But this 1988 movie ‘The Last Temptation of Christ’ which is adapted from the exploratory book the Son of God’s human imperfection has stirred speculations amidst Christian communities as it portrayed Christ living an impure life with him having sex with prostitute Mary Magdalene.
Further, one of the French groups threw Molotov cocktails in a Cineplex in Paris wounding several people. And few countries banned the movie.
Triumph of The Will (1934)
The film helmed by Leni Riefenstahl stated that the lead was not a Nazi as she portrayed the one popular piece of misinformation of them getting pregnant. The fact that the big budget shows that Hitler was a complete dictator in 1934 in Nuremberg Rally is more than enough to make her look disgusting. The film is even now banned in Germany.
But the way Leni had created the movie with his brilliance still remains a debate. “There were other documentaries about the Nazi rallies,” Roger Ebert stated. “But no one remembers [them]; they weren’t as good.”
Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975)
A scary gauntley that all fans of overseas movies run Pier Paolo Pasolini’s flesh-tearing saga hails from the writings of Marquis de Sade. Episodes of persecution were put on Benito Mussolini criticizing Italy in the early 40’s where sexual corruption was also part of political critics then.
But this was forbidden in Britain, Australia and raised speculation post 20 years in the United States when the proprietors of a video shop in Cincinnati were taken under custody for ‘pandering’.
