10. American Pie (1999)

A movie known for iconic phrases— “Stiffler’s mom”, “Pie fucking”— American Pie revolutionized the second era of sex comedies with a rabelaisian, lewd movie about four teenagers wanking their way to losing virginity. Starring Shannon Elizabeth, the film tumbles its way into unforgettable bits involving shitty sex scenes with amped-up frustration that leaks as prematurely as Tara Reid’s attractiveness.

6. Eyes Wide Shut (1999)

‘Eyes Wide Shut’ is probably the most Kubrickian of all Kubrick films. You can attempt an explanation to all of his other films, but no absolute one is possible to this one. It is the master’s final statement on the slumber of modern life. It’s dream-like narrative fueled by stunning visual detail, a bravura performance from Nicole Kidman and a masterful use of Ligeti’s music, lend the film the ability to compel the audience to get lost in it, and believe me is it hard to recover. Why you should not watch it with parents: Lots of nudity and sex.

Kubrick’s dystopian crime drama delves deep into the sheer madness and chaos inherent in human psyche. The film’s protagonist Alex DeLarge is a psychopathic maniac with an insatiable taste for violence.

2. Shame (2011)

On the face of it, ‘Shame’ is about sex-addiction; but it could so easily have been about any other addiction. How often we try to masquerade our inner fears and weaknesses under the veil of addiction ? Shame deals with that. It also disentangles an aspect of human behavior like no other film this century has managed to do. World came to know about McQueen from Oscar winning ’12 Years A Slave’. But watch ‘Shame’ and you will realize why McQueen is such a great talent. The way he lets camera linger around as if it is a silent, invisible person — and not just an image capturing tool — is pure genius. Why you should not watch it with parents: Graphic sex. Nudity.

1. The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

Based on true-life events of stockbroker Jordan Belfort, ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ is so over-the-top wacky, that at times it’s unbelievable that what you are seeing on-screen may have actually happened. It is as much a daringly audacious film as it is deliriously funny. It never shies away going all the way out, even if that means going completely wild. After all, truth is stranger — and possibly — wilder than fiction. Why you should not watch it with parents: Drugs. Booze. Sex. Slurs.
