7. Last Tango in Paris (1972)
Paul (Marlon Brando), a middle-aged American, involves Paris when his estranged wife commits suicide. Chancing to satisfy young Frenchwoman Jeanne (Maria Schneider), Paul enters into a sadomasochistic, carnal relationship together with her . The $e-xual content in ‘Last Tango in Paris’ is uncomfortably explicit (the infamous “butter scene” is unforgettable). the mixture of Brando’s acting, Bertolucci’s direction, Vittorio Storaro’s cinematography, and Gato Barbieri’s music create an exquisitely erotic piece of art.
