4. Cam (2018)

Directed by Daniel Goldhaber, this Netflix original is about an adult webcam performer who discovers a sinister presence has taken her place on the internet. Cam has some truly frightening moments, and it examines the subject matter of sex work with appropriate care and thought. Most notably, it showcases a head-turning lead performance by The Handmaids Tale‘s Madeline Brewer, often playing multiple entities on-screen at the same time. Thanks to a perceptive script by real-life former cam girl Isa MazzeiCam is often an examination of fractured identity, something that’s definitely not limited to the world of adult entertainment. Cam stumbles a bit at the ending, but it’s full of provocative ideas, and Brewer just floors you.

5. 365 Days (2020)

In this massive hit for the streaming service, a smokin’ hot babe with an air of innocence about her is kidnapped by a mafioso who happens to be a 10/10 chiseled stud. The crime boss gives the young lady one year to fall in love with him; sexy antics ensue!

365 Days is essentially Fifty Shades of Grey with Italian flavor. The storytelling is as clunky Fifty Shades, and the story has been equally chided for its misogynistic undertones. None of that prevented the skin flick from becoming one of Netflix’s biggest successes of the year. The envelope-pushing nudity and sexual content helped it become the domain’s most-watched movie in summer 2020.

Around the one hour, seven-minute mark, lies “the boat scene,” one of the most intense and graphic sex scenes in a mainstream picture in years. Brace yourself.

11.  I Am Jonas (2018) 

Some stunning eye candy (those cheekbones on star Félix Maritaud!) punctuates this powerful, acclaimed coming-of-age drama. Young gay love is part of the plot, so is devastating tragedy. Like the bodies on display, this plot is a beauty, told in non-linear fashion with some suspense and surprise. To ruin it would be a disservice. Just watch it already.

12. Berlin Syndrome (2017) 

So abundant we might as well make them their own genre, movies about kidnapped females generally go one of two ways: It’s either all about the suspense, figuring out how and if she will get out—or there’s the nastier route, the really low road, when some movies focus on a woman’s torture and humiliation, turning it into spectacle.

Though Australian director Cate Shortland‘s adaptation of Melanie Joosten‘s novel about a tourist imprisoned by a handsome teacher after a passionate one-night-stand is a thriller (quite heart-pounding at times), and much of the woman’s mistreatment is extremely hard to watch, this highly absorbing psychological drama stands out because it’s all about the chlaracters and what’s going on in their heads. It also differs from other films of its ilk in that this nightmare begins with genuine erotic tension and heat, a mutual attraction.

Aussie-born Teresa Palmer of Hacksaw Ridge fame delivers a ripper of a performance as a victim suffering in stages not unlike the stages of grieving. German Max Riemelt (Sense8) keeps up every step of the way as her chilling and multifaceted captor, but this is Palmer’s film, and it gave the dynamite actress long-relegated to playing love-interest side characters a serious calling card in Hollywood.

13Carol (2015)

Based on the 1952 novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith, the most assured film of Todd Haynes‘ illustrious career to date tells the story of forbidden love between a young photographer (Rooney Mara) and an older woman (Cate Blanchett) going through a rough divorce. This is an utterly riveting, even exhausting watch, as the lovers must overcome disheartening, dehumanizing adversity. The hopeful ending is hard-won and deeply gratifying.

Mara won Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival, but was submitted for Best Supporting Actress at the OscarsCarol was nominated for six Academy Awards total, surprisingly shut out of Best Picture and Best Director categories.

14. Basic Instinct (1992)

Following box-office triumphs Robocop and Total Recall (and before box-office dud-turned home-video behemoth ShowgirlsPaul Verhoeven helmed the high-class-trashy neo-noir erotic thriller that made Sharon Stone a household name. Michael Douglas stars as a homicide detective who becomes entangled with a beautiful crime novelist following the unusual, brutal death of a rock star. Despite middling reviews from critics, Basic Instinct grossed an astounding $352.9 million against a $49 million budget. An unintentionally hilarious sequel followed in 2006.

15. A Perfect Ending (2012)
