The 25 Best Sexy Movies of the 21st Century, From ‘Y Tu Mamá También’ to ‘Blue is the Warmest Color’

23 June 2017 7:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s no secret that sex sells, and movies are no exception. But while plenty of films like to show gratuitous sex, they’re not always very good. That’s a problem, since movies have the power to shape not only the cultural norms, but personal ones. And what could be more personal than sex? Sexuality is an integral part of the human experience, not some sensational or shameful ploy to sell tickets (though it doesn’t hurt).

That’s why we think it’s important to single out the very best films that also happen to be incredibly sexy, titillating, and provocative. These are not only some of our favorite films in general, but they’re films that celebrate the broad spectrum of human sexuality while telling stories as cinematic as they are personal. Some don’t have any sex scenes at all, while some are notoriously near-pornographic. When these movies do show sex it is always in service of the story, and always in order to challenge, subvert, or celebrate contemporary beliefs about sexuality.

Turn on (and get turned on) by our list of the 25 best sexy movies of the 21st century (well, so far). You know you want to.

25. “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” (2008)

Undeniably sexy and amusing at once, Woody Allen’s 2008 Spain-set dramedy delights in pushing its various players into all sorts of romantic permutations and configurations. Anchored by Scarlett Johansson in a sneaky performance as the eponymous Cristina (pre-breakout Rebecca Hall is her best pal Vicky), the film follows a pair of friends as they meet and make lots of love with the beguiling Juan Antonio (Javier Bardem), who isn’t at all thrown off by the possibility of having two lovely ladies in his bed. In fact, he’s got another one to think about too, his free-spirited ex-wife (Penelope Cruz), who he just can’t get out of his head (or heart). On the surface, “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” is a dead sexy romp about free-wheeling love-makers (complete with plenty of naughty bits), but it’s also a film that boldly explores issues of fluidity and fidelity with an uncharacteristically easy touch. -Ke

24. “Shortbus” (2006)

With its three-person blowjob circle, non-simulated sex scenes including ejaculation, and close-up of a pee stream unleashing into a bathtub, “Shortbus” is not for everyone. It’s an ambitious film, one that attempts to have fun, be sexy, and tell a good story. If anyone could pull it off, it would be the man behind “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” John Cameron Mitchell. “Shortbus” feels as much like an ensemble comedy as a playful experiment, though the two main characters are a sex therapist who’s never had an orgasm and a retired gay sex worker experimenting with opening up his relationship. With their partners, they both begin attending a weekly artist and sex salon, each hoping inspiration will strike. Mitchell wanted to use sex in new cinematic ways, “because it’s too interesting to be left to porn.” If it’s interesting sex you want, “Shortbus” has got it. -Jd

23. “Brokeback Mountain” (2005)

The end of this film is so movingly profound that your memory of it might not be that it was all that sexy. The love between these two men, buried under their rugged cowboy exteriors, ends with what can only be described as a sense of life-defining tragedy. Yet it is those brief moments where they let themselves go and unleash their animalistic passion, which “Crouching Tiger” director Ang Lee captures in his normal visceral fashion, that add a level of eroticism and physically affection that nearly makes all the pain worth it. Ennis and Jack rotate from almost fighting, as they pull at each others’ denim-clad exterior, to moments of being naked and incredibly tender. It’s virtually every cowboy fantasy rolled up into one. That they can only be themselves in the privacy of the great outdoors makes everything that much more liberating. Watching this film in 2005 felt taboo and rebellious, which resulted in a charged atmosphere in packed mainstream cineplexes around the country. -Co

22. “In the Cut” (2003)

Jane Campion’s handle on female desire has always been one of her best attributes as a director (and she’s got a lot of them), but nothing in her filmography is as overtly sexy and emotionally challenging as her 2003 Meg Ryan-starrer “In the Cut” (and that includes “The Piano,” which has a sexiness and eroticism all its own). Our first introduction to Ryan’s character is rooted in her coming to heady terms with her own sexuality, a theme that carries over throughout the often grisly drama. Increasingly drawn to Mark Ruffalo as a moody detective looking to solve a local murder that Frannie is tangentially involved in, Ryan’s character pushes the boundaries of “acceptable” desire. It’s a theme that Campion giddily plays into with some of modern cinema’s most satisfying and profound sex scenes, many of which center on — gasp — Frannie’s own pleasure over that of Ruffalo’s character. -Ke

21. “Hustle & Flow” (2005)

Craig Brewer’s crowdpleaser about a pimp dreaming of music fame is anchored by strong performances from Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, and Taryn Manning. Howard plays Djay, while Henson and Manning are Shug and Nola, two of his girls. Hot-tempered and passionate, Djay begins making tracks with his friend Key (Anthony Anderson), and discovers he has a gift for lyrics. The catchy original soundtrack helps sell the story, as Djay’s songs seem to actually have a chance at getting radio play. While the strip club setting provides ample shots of semi-nude women, Djay and Shug’s sweet romance gives the film its emotional core and shows a softer side to Djay (and his temper). Their undeniable chemistry leads the previously timid Shug to throw down a sexy hook, her raspy croon on “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” making Henson’s star power glaringly obvious. -Jd

20. “Beyond the Lights” (2014)

Chemistry is the name of the game in Gina Prince-Bythewood’s freight-train fast music industry romance, which pairs up rising starlet Gugu Mbatha-Raw (pure charm) alongside pre-“Birth of a Nation” Nate Parker. The pair exhibit major fireworks from the start, imagining Mbatha-Raw as hot new pop star Noni Jean, a big talent who is dangerously close to burning out and fading away, before she falls into the protective arms Parker’s do-gooder cop, Kaz Nicol. Prince-Bythewood’s film cannily sneaks in big questions about fame and the entertainment industry, along with issues regarding what’s actually sexy (Noni Jean is frequently kitted out in teensy costumes that make record execs happy, while diminishing her own humanity with every stitch), deep issues that are lovingly cradled by full-scale love story. When the pair finally give into their obvious attraction, “Beyond the Lights” pulls out the big guns, all gauzy love scenes and one particularly hot trip to Mexico, but the film maintains its sensuality by remembering that nothing is so sexy as mutual respect and admiration. -Ke

19. “In the Mood for Love” (2000)

Every Wong Kar-wai movie contains a kind of visual sensuality in every frame, but “In the Mood for Love” goes one step further — its slow-burning romance between a pair of would-be lovers who live across the hall from each other in sixties-era Hong Kong is rich with unobtainable desire. Much is left unsaid and unachieved about the fantasy of an extramarital affair shared by Chow Mo-wan (Tony Leung) and Su Li-zhen (Maggie Cheung), but the hints of attraction between them, unfolding in small gestures and passing glances, imbues each scene with the intensity of emotions specific to a period of repression. It’s a grand tragedy of issed opportunities framed by erotic implications. —Eric Kohn

18. “Ex Machina” (2014)

If you like high-tech voyeurism and intellectual sparring, you might find Alex Garland’s cerebral sci-fi thriller unearthing some hidden desires. An affable young programmer, Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), is invited to the secluded jungle home of the CEO of his company, Nathan (Oscar Isaac) to participate in a top-secret experiment. Nathan wants to know if the cyborg he has been developing, Ava (Alicia Vikander) can convince Caleb that she has real consciousness. The tension is ripe between Nathan and Caleb as each attempts to alternately impress and control the other, but it is Caleb’s obsession with saving Ava that raises questions about the hero myth. Ava is the embodiment of male fantasy, trapped within a body invented to please and serve. As the two men fight over who best understands her mind, it turns out Ava was pulling the strings all along. There’s nothing sexier than a woman in charge. -Jd

17. “Quills” (2000)

It’s easy enough to get sucked into “Quills” based on the promise of Joaquin Phoenix playing an earnest (and incredibly sexy) young priest tempted by his attraction to a chambermaid. But somehow, much like Kate Winslet’s Madeline, we fall under the spell of the charismatic Geoffrey Rush, who plays his role as the Marquis de Sade with a deliciously dirty panache befitting the notorious French writer. The Marquis’ libertine ways run counter to the no-nonsense Royer-Collard (Michael Caine), who takes over the asylum with the intention of stifling the writer’s creative output. But even his own wife is no match for the words of the Marquis, which ooze both sensuality and liberty. Before long, any initial apprehension to the Marquis de Sade (he is a dirty old man, after all) is fully given over to the hope that his debauchery will win out, and that his desire, as well as that of Madeline and Coulmier (Phoenix) will be fully fulfilled — even though we know this is impossible. -Jr

16. “A Bigger Splash” (2015)

Watching “A Bigger Splash” feels like observing a sizzling chess game of attraction. Luca Guadagnino sticks Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Dakota Johnson on the world’s most gorgeous island and lets the sparks fly. Swinton plays a world-famous rock singer vacationing with her lover, a chiseled Schoenaerts who is practically a walking and talking sculpture of male beauty. Their time together is disrupted by the arrival of the rocker’s former lover and his daughter, a promiscuous young 22-year-old. Each character is so ready to succumb to sexual desire and so pent up with sexual attraction that Guadagnino creates the ultimate emotional orgy. The fun is in seeing how each person uses their sexuality to outsmart the next. You’ll be seduced from the first frame to the last. It feels like you’re watching each actor for the very first time. -Zs

On the next page: wild adventures in Florida, some of the century’s most jaw-dropping pairings, and at least one murder.

San Sebastian: Ricardo Darín To Be Honored at San Sebastian

21 June 2017 8:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Barcelona – Argentina’s Ricardo Darín will receive the San Sebastian Film Festival’s Donostia Award for career achievement on Sept. 26. The prize is the highest distinction given by the highest-profile fest in the Spanish-speaking world.

The Donostia Award was launched in 1986 and began by recognizing stars from Hollywood classic era –Gregory Peck, Bette Davis, Glenn Ford– to later expand to eminent and far more recent U.S, and European figures such as Al Pacino, Michael Caine and Susan Sarandon.

Buenos Aires-born Darín will receive the award at a presentation of Santiago Mitre’s “The Summit.” Via its Donostia Award, the festival will honor one of most charismatic and well-known of contemporary Latin-American actors who has worked with many of the Spanish-speaking world’s most prestigious filmmakers including Juan José Campanella, Adolfo Aristarain, Pablo Trapero, Fabián Bielinsky, Fernando Trueba, Cesc Gay and Mitre.

Darín is the second Latin-American actor distinguished with the honor, after Benicio del Toro in 2014. Darín’s recognition is in line with San Sebastian aim of strengthening links with Latin America, seen in its thriving Latin-American Co-production Forum, launched by fest director José Luis Rebordinos in 2011.

A co-production between K&S Films and La Union de los Ríos (Argentina), Mod Producciones (Spain) and Maneki Films (France), “The Summit” was also penned by Mitre and offers two intertwining plots –one focused on the personal life of an Argentine president, played by Darin, and the other depicting the political intrigue at a Latin American summit. Alongside Darín, Dolores Fonzi, Érica Rivas, Elena Anaya, Daniel Giménez Cacho and Christian Slater figure in the cast. The feature world premiered in Cannes’ One Certain Regard and is sold by Spain’s Film Factory Entertainment. It will be released in U.S. on Aug. 18 via Warner Bros Pictures International.

Darin’s career dates back to when he was five and began acting in TV series. His international breakthrough came with Fabian Bielinsky’s “Nine Queens.” Some of his most noteworthy performances have been in movies of Juan José Campanella’s, led by “The Secret in Their Eyes” who won a best foreign-language Academy Award). Darin also starred in ”Son of the Bride,” nominated for an Academy Award, ”Moon of Avellaneda,” also from Campanella, Fernando Trueba’s “The Dancer and the Thief,” Sebastián Borenzstein’s “Kóblic,” Damián Szifron’s “Wild Tales” and Pablo Trapero’s “White Elephant.”

Though he can shown large range, if there’s a Darín touch, perhaps its the light and tender irony he gives to many of his characters.

Spanish director Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón said of Darín: “All the characters he plays seem to have been especially written for him and only for him to play them. Darín lends transparency to characters he embodies.”

On of Latin America’s most bankable actors, whose presence can help pre-sell a movie, Darin’s selectiveness with the films he stars in has made his involvement an important pointer to a movie’s quality.

“The Secret of Their Eyes,” earned $6.4 million for Sony Pictures Classics in 2010 and “Wild Tales,” another Sony Pictures Classics pickup accumulated $44 million worldwide, a standout figure for a Spanish-language feature.

Darín took the best actor Silver Shell Award in San Sebastian for Cesc Gay’s “Truman.”

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon Continue the Adventure in U.S. Trailer for ‘The Trip to Spain’

15 June 2017 4:28 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Averting the bigger is better approach that plagues most franchises, The Trip series is attuned to life’s simple pleasures: cuisine, comedy, and companionship. For Michael Winterbottom, Steve Coogan, and Rob Brydon, their third outing, The Trip to Spain, refreshingly doesn’t stray from the charismatic formula that has resulted in perhaps the most delightful series of films this decade. Ahead of a release this August, the first full trailer has now arrived.

“In reviewing one of The Trip films, the base criteria is perhaps different than that for any other feature. Are there laughs? Does the food look delectable? Are the vistas magnificent?,” I said after its Tribeca premiere. “Indeed, The Trip to Spain features hysterical impressions of Mick Jagger, Michael Caine, John Hurt, Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando, and half the James Bond actors over exquisitely-presented plates of chorizo, anchovies, flan, and mussels, all while surveying stunning rolling hills and coastal seascapes. »

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon Make A Trip To Spain In New Trailer

14 June 2017 2:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s been four years since The Trip To Italy. Now comes IFC’s third film in the series, The Trip To Spain, from director Michael Winterbottom.

After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country’s gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter. Over plates of pintxos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age. As always, the locales are breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish.

The film opens in theaters August 11, 2017.

Steve’s film career includes five films with Michael Winterbottom.

The Trip To Spain is the third in an occasional series that began with 2011’s The Trip, »

Ranking The Pixar Sequels

12 June 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of the release of Cars 3, Eric Bay-Andersen ranks Pixar’s sequels…

When people hear ‘sequel’, they usually think ‘shameless cash-in’, and although Disney’s purchase of Pixar must surely have influenced the number of sequels the studio has produced in the last 20 years (six with at least two more on the way), Pixar’s reputation for quality film-making means their hit-rate is higher than most. Here’s my ranking of the five they’ve released so far…

5. Cars 2

Astonishingly, the Cars franchise is the studio’s biggest money-maker when it comes to merchandise, but the second instalment is surely Pixar’s least-loved film so far (which doesn’t bode well for Cars 3). The first film had a slight charm to it, and a sweet message about the beauty of small-town life and finding happiness off the beaten track, but for the sequel they tossed all that »

Glenne Headly obituary

Us actor best known for her role in the comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Glenne Headly, who has died aged 62 from complications after a pulmonary embolism, was a gifted, sympathetic actor equally accomplished at comedy and drama. She was widely loved for her jaunty turn in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988) as the soft-hearted dope targeted by two Côte d’Azur conmen, played by Michael Caine and Steve Martin.

Headly pulled off the difficult task of seeming oblivious to their tricks without appearing witless. In the film’s final moments, she turned the tables on her would-be exploiters in a satisfying switcheroo that Headly had helped cook up when the scripted ending proved inadequate. The director, Frank Oz, was pleasantly surprised. “People so far – and in a way I almost did it myself – have just been scratching the surface of her talent,” he said at the time.

Brendan Fraser: the lost movie star?

11 June 2017 2:16 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jun 15, 2017

Brendan Fraser seemed on the verge of being a major movie star in the late 1990s. But it never came to be. We look at why…

I remember going in to watch 1994’s Airheads at the cinema, at the time tempted to do so more by the name of Michael Lehmann on the end credits than Adam Sandler and Brendan Fraser above the title. Steve Buscemi’s presence helped too, of course. But Lehmann had, after all, come to the project off the back of the unfairly maligned Hudson Hawk, and also, this is the man who gave the world Heathers. Can’t grumble with that.

I’d not seen Brendan Fraser on the big screen before, although even by this stage, he’d earned some currency. Encino Man – California Man in the UK – had overcome savage reviews to prove a decent hit. School Ties, that I »

Are You Screening? Podcast #210 – Going In Style

7 June 2017 12:41 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

You knew what you were getting with Going in Style when you walked in, and the only question was whether or not these three icons of cinema were going to go full slapstick in this caper picture about retirees who decide they don’t have much to lose.

That’s probably why we spent a good deal of time going back to the whitewashing controversy surrounding Ghost in the Shell. Well, that and someone asked us about it.

Still, if you can’t have a good time with any picture starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin, you probably just aren’t trying… or, you’re rather young.
