I Am Loved 2009 R

Luca Guadagnino’s film, I Am Loved, explores the many sides of sensuality. His hand held camera zooms in for close-ups of eating shrimp soup, bees on flowers and nipples during love making and so much more. The film contains erotic and sensual passion, all unfortunately centered around the destruction of an Italian family. The film’s setting is Tuscany. I recently visited this area and was likewise intoxicated by the delicious food and sensual beauty of the art. The film translates this sensuality into erotic passion of a married mature woman for a young man. This Italian film is presented with sub-titles and at times is slow moving. Nonetheless, I recommend it. The film is available on Netflix. 11/6/17

Gia 1998 R

This film is available on Amazon Prime. It is an amazing portrayal by Angelina Jolie both in terms of acting and erotic content. The movie encouraged me to see other films by Angelina Jolie. The love scenes of Angelina and Elizabeth Mitchell are very erotic and well filmed. Gia represented many boundaries and movements currently facing society (feminism, AIDS, public sexuality, child abuse, domestic violence etc.) This is a sad story but a must-watch. 11/6/17
