There are certain subjects in society that are just plain taboo. They don't make for polite dinner conversation and they are swept under the carpet in a hasty manner. Personally, I have no problem discussing each and every subject under the sun - even the ickiest - and I have from an early age sought out transgressive cinema, music, literature and art. It has to be said that cinema has provided me with the finest and most memorable moments of transgression. The portrayal of taboo subjects or acts is fascinating in the world of film, even just to see how directors will present the issues and what thought provoking morsels we can take away with the films. In real life there ARE necrophiliacs, coprophiliacs, people into bestiality and incest, as well as the enduring snuff movie myths. and the films that cover such subjects are not necessarily exploitative in their approach to their subject matter. Some are serious works of art. So I present to you five memorable films that have dared to delve into the world of taboo subjects. Please remain morbidly fascinated!
