Most Controversial Movies of All Time
The Top Ten
Withdrawn in all forms and not re-released until after the death (27 years later) of the director, Stanley Kubrick, who feared the "droogs" would come and get him and his family, as there had already been copycat crimes committed.
This movie was released back in 1971? That's pretty old for such a controversial film like this.
This film was controversial back then due to its graphic nudity, rape scenes, sexual violence, and nihilistic behavior. this film has also inspired so much real life crimes that include several murders by teenage boys, as well as the assault of a woman by a man dressed as a droog. perhaps the most infamous was the notorious singing in the rain rape scene, which contained scary similarities to a real life gang-rape where the perpetrators also sang the song.
A classic movie! Crossed all the boundaries
It shows how barbaric, twisted and perverted human beings can be. In my opinion, this movie is the most controversial and disturbing of them all. I can't imagine people sitting in a movie theater watching it!
Let's see, it's loved by critics due to its insane technical achievement (most movies back then were very short, this one ran over 3 hours) as the first "epic" movie. On the other hand, it is hated by audiences due to its insane racism (the movie concerns a black revolution and the heroes of the movie are the Ku Klux Klan). I don't think it can get more controversial than this.
This movie may be disgusting but it's not horrible. Just don't watch if you get sick easily of if you find some of the scenes in the film offensive.
Anyone who watches the unrated version would almost certainly vote for this film.
This movie deserves to get banned in every country.
This movie is so messed up! Scarred me for
This deserves the #1 spot. Judging by the synopsis, I will never watch this.
It sounds like the worst thing to ever come out of Italy since Benito Mussolini.
This is very controversial due to how graphic it is.
The possible snuff film.
this is one of the movies in which I suffered more, beacuse my saw how Father was punished wrongly; but I felt worse, when I realized that He died because of all the sins I have made
Mel Gibson Details the Last 12 Hours of Jesus' Life in a brutal way (maybe that's the truth maybe not... ) and that has given birth to a big controversy for his movie
Maybe Gibson exaggerated some things with Jesus punishment. We don't know it exactly but still this movie is classic!
The Leftist-Atheist organizations were extremely upset that a movie was mad without their blessing or permission.
This movie's original rating was NC-17 but it was changed to R two weeks before it's release
It's South Park. Get over it
Well It's South Park
Okey, in Norway where I came from, this movie got 11+ And the racism, voilence and swearing in this movie maked me gasp as a 13 yer old!
This movie is SO screwed up on so many ways. It should definitely be higher on the list.
Huh. Doesn't look controversial from the picture of a happy cartoon bunny on the cover. I have been wrong before though.
Shouldn't that movie be number one!? I mean, it's racist!
A girl gets raped and she gets revenge and kills them in the most gruesome and disturbing ways.
When I saw this movie I found it extremely lame. Nothing shocked me in this overrated movie. I live in Europe and if it's typical American to call a film like this controversial,I think you got very restricted lifes back there.
One of the most disturbing movies in history the shocking deaths and brutal violence will make you cringe
Much better than Psycho
Controversial due to being about North Korea
LOVE THIS MOVIE
