The Most Controversial Films

Introduction: Films always have the ability to angerus, divide us, shock us, disgust us, and more. Usually, filmsthat inspire controversy, outright boycotting, picketing, banning,censorship, or protest have graphic sex, violence, homosexuality,religious, political or race-related themes and content. Theyusually push the envelope regarding what can be filmed and displayedon the screen, and are considered taboo, "immoral" or "obscene" due to language, drug use, violence and sensuality/nudityor other incendiary elements. Inevitably, controversy helps topublicize these films and fuel the box-office receipts.

Controversy-invoking films may be from almost
any genre - documentaries, westerns, erotic-thrillers,
dramas, horror, comedy, or animated, and more. Standards for what may be considered shocking, offensive or controversial have changed drastically over many decades.The
voluntary ratings system of the Motion Picture Association of
America can influence a film's public showing in a theatre --
an NC-17 rating or an unrated film may often close down a film's
screening and lead to commercial failure.


The following illustrated list in the next few web pages,
in unranked alphabetical order, presents a solid collection of
the most controversial films in cinematic history. Entertainment
Weekly
