The Most Controversial Movies on Netflix

'Nymphomaniac'
(2013)
Starring: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgård, Stacy Martin, Shia LaBeouf, Christian Slater, Uma Thurman, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Mia Goth, Udo Kier

Lars Von Trier's epic is available in a theatrical release and in a 325 minute director's cut. It's the story of Joe (Gainsbourg), a self-described nymphomaniac, and her evolution as a sexual being over years with many partners of all kinds. This is one of the most controversial films ever made. Von Trier's films are always talked about, but this one was another level. Consider the title alone. Containing realistic sex scenes (achieved with CGI), plenty of nudity, and fetishistic acts of assorted levels of experiment, this isn't a pornographic movie. Far from it. The characters are vivid; Joe's story is haunting; and the ending will rock you.
