Anyone under the age of 17 is not allowed to watch a movie with an NC-17 rating.
But the NC-17 rating has been given to some of the most well-known movies ever made.
But keep in mind that the MPAA doesn’t rate movies that come out right away on Netflix (the rating agency for theatrical movies).
So, when we made this list of the most daring movies on Netflix, we decided to rate the ones that weren’t already rated.
Here are some really good NC-17 movies that you can stream right now on Netflix.
5. The Green Inferno (2013)
Eli Roth, who is known as one of the most famous members of the Splat Pack, a group of filmmakers known for making exploitation horror movies, pays tribute in “The Green Inferno” to Italian cannibal movies from the late 1970s and early 1980s.
The movie takes place in the Amazon rainforest and is about a group of student activists who travel to South America to protest against a petrochemical company. But their plane crashes, and a tribe of cannibals takes them captive and starts killing and eating them one by one.
If the success of a horror movie is measured by how uncomfortable and uneasy it makes the audience feel, then “The Green Inferno” has done its job.
4. Point Blank (2019)
In this buddy action movie, Frank Grillo and Anthony Mackie play a hardened criminal and an ER nurse, respectively, who have to fight against some dangerous forces to keep their families from being killed. Abe (Grillo) takes Paul (Mackie), who is always calm and collected, on the ride of a lifetime, but there is danger around every corner.
The movie is only 87 minutes long, but even though it’s short, it sometimes drags for no reason.
The story starts out with a lot of promise, but it loses the audience’s attention along the way.
The main problem with “Point Blank” is that its story is pretty boring and has nothing new or exciting to offer. Screenwriter Adam G. Simon could have done a better job of developing the characters as well.
3. Newness (2017)
Apps for dating have changed the way people date in general. In the independent movie “Newness,” starring Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa, the ups and downs of relationships in this brand-new world are shown. Martin from Halt meets Gabi from Costa through an app after both of them go on bad dates. They end up sleeping together, and then Gabi moves in with Martin.
Even though the beginnings of relationships aren’t as hard as they used to be, they are still hard when the initial passion starts to fade and doubts start to creep in. Gabi learns things about Martin during a visit to his parent’s house that she didn’t know before.
These things make her wonder if Martin is really committed to her. In a strange twist, they end up cheating on each other in the end. But the relationship still exists, even though its meaning has changed in some ways. In the movie “Newness,” which was directed by Drake Doremus, he shows how even a very modern love story is affected by its setting.
2. 365 Days (2020)
“365 Days” is a Polish erotic thriller that was directed by Barbara Biaows and Tomasz Mandes. It is very raunchy and deals with controversial ideas like questionable consent, sadomasochism, and sexual violence.
Don Massimo Torricelli, played by Michele Morrone, is the main male character in the movie. After his father is killed, he takes over as head of a Sicilian crime family.
Since he first saw Polish executive Laura Biel (Anna-Maria Sieklucka) on a beach five years ago, he has been crazy about her.
After Laura has a fight with her boyfriend, she meets Massimo and he takes her away.
He takes her to his villa and tells her that he will keep her as his prisoner for the next year until she really cares about him.
What happens next is a battle for power between the two strong-willed characters.
1. Amar (2017)
This exciting and sexy romance drama was the first movie that Spanish director Esteban Crespo made.
He couldn’t get the story out of his head for a long time. In 2005, Crespo made a short film with the same story but with different actors.
Mara Pedraza and Pol Monen play Laura and Carlos on the big screen.
They are two young people who explore every part of their sexuality with each other.
The first half of the movie is so filled with hope that when the darkness and separation come, they don’t feel as bad as they should.
The camerawork of cinematographer ngel Amorós shows in minute detail how close the two main characters are to each other, but it never feels intrusive or voyeuristic for a second.
At its heart, “Amar” is a celebration of becoming an adult, that short time in our lives when we try to find our true selves through the maze of contradictions that come with being a teenager.
