    In the Realm of the Senses

    ★★★★½

    Nagisa Ōshima's most controversial movie out of a filmography of controversial movies and one of the most notorious films of all time. In the Realm of the Senses is a giant of a film. It's known for its graphic sex and violence, and even 50 years after its release it is still banned in Japan. The sex is unsimulated and at the forefront of nearly every scene of the film. It was one of the first art house films to…

    It's the story of a witch in the 19th century. She can take on the appearance of different people and through that…

    Southern Comfort

    ★★★½

    This came out two years after The Warriors and it feels like Walter Hill just wanted to make the same movie again but changed slightly. It's the same setup about a group of people stuck in enemy territory and trying to get out alive. Although just because they're similar doesn't mean this is bad, it's actually pretty solid. I like movies focused on a group of characters and this does that well. They all have their own personalities and feel…
