Dangerous is Sexy

Writing about sexy movies at the end of the week is difficult. There have already been so many fantastic movies mentioned, with me nodding enthusiastically and saying, "Oh yeah, I need to see that!" about almost every one of them. I love movies, all kinds of movies, and it doesn't take much for me to enjoy a film and find something redeeming in it. (Though I might be hard pressed to say that about the remake of Footloose. I mean, really? Sheesh.) But liking a film and labeling one (or more) as sexy are two entirely different things. FIlms that are labeled "erotic" or "sensual" often seem awkward and forced to me. (Eyes Wide Shut immediately comes to mind.)

I had thought about exploring the porn genre and highlighting the best and sexiest of the bunch. But the reality is, I don't watch much porn. At least, not the 90 minute feature films with plots and costumes and exotic settings and whatnot. I suppose I could take this opportunity to study the genre and report back (it's a tough job, right?), but perhaps I'll save that for another time.

I have blogged about one of my favorite movies before, which also happens to be one of the sexiest movies I've ever seen. Dangerous Beauty is a beautiful, lush film and has the added bonus of being based on the true story of Veronica Franco, a sixteenth century Venetian courtesan. Having written about it before, I figure I should probably write about a different sexy film. But I can't resist sharing a clip from Dangerous Beauty just to entice you.


Trust me, the entire movie is just as beautiful and sensual and surprising.

Interestingly, the film I've been thinking about the most lately in terms of it's sexiness quotient hasn't even been released yet. A Dangerous Method is a fictionalized account of Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung and the woman who comes between them, Sabina Spielrein. In addition to being another period film based on real people (as well as having the word Dangerous in the title), I'm intrigued by the potential eroticism of this film. The trailer certainly suggests it will be sexy. Or is it just me?


Makes me want to go back to college and get a degree in psychology...

  2. Hmm. I don't see the clips at all.

    I've got to see the movie about Freud and Jung, though! What potential!
