The fourth (and final) Top 20 Sexiest Movies You’ve Never Seen article will be arriving later this week. To tide you over, I compiled this list of some other steamy films you might’ve missed that are currently available on Netflix Instant.
Personally, I favor My Summer of Love in this pairing. It’s an early Emily Blunt performance in which she plays a well-to-do, manipulative young woman who carries on a relationship with a lower class girl. Room in Rome kind of bugged me, actually. I can understand the appeal that it may have for some viewers, however, considering that it’s about two female characters spending the majority of the duration naked in a hotel room.
WARNING: Your overall enjoyment of Room in Rome may hinge upon how much you like the song “Loving Strangers” by Russian Red, which is played frequently during the movie. I started to hate it by the end. Take a listen and determine if you can tolerate hearing it over and over:
We have John Malkovich and Sam Neill as painters with an appreciation for the female form. Klimt is about a real artist, Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), whose work was highly sexual. Sirens marked the first major film appearance of model Elle Macpherson. She is displayed generously throughout. To offer some perspective, she frequently wears less than this:
If you’re a fan of Asia Argento, or are looking for a reason to be, then give these a try. Out of all her films available on Netflix Instant, the following offer the highest level of entertainment value in conjunction with optimal Argento exposure. The Last Mistress is recommended for those who enjoy a good erotic costume drama. B. Monkey is a crime romance flick co-starring Rupert Everett.
My Tutor is one of the most inspiring movies I encountered on cable back in my younger days. The opening credits with the aerobics is among my favorites of all time. It’s about a high school student who gets into it hot and heavy with his French tutor, the wonderful Caren Kaye (pictured above). What always freaked me out was that Kaye also played Jason Bateman‘s mother on the short-lived TV show It’s Your Move. I saw My Tutor before the show, so naturally I was a bit surprised that this lust-inducing woman turned up on a prime time family program. Here’s the show’s intro:
I’ve watched all the movies in the Species series. I assume most people would crown the first one as the sexiest of the four (as far as movies featuring alien lovemaking can be sexy). The third easily takes the runner-up spot. Not only are there two attractive alien women to behold (when they aren’t covered in scales), but the second and last installments are just really bad. Simply not sucking is often enough to increase a sequel’s sexiness quotient considerably. Species III does not suck in the slightest (relatively speaking).
Dirty O’Neil is mostly a comedy about a police officer who spends his days patrolling for attractive women around town. In-between, he talks a guy in a gorilla suit out of jumping off a building and catches a flasher by dressing up as a female nurse. Toward the end is when it becomes more serious, which doesn’t totally gel with the goofy tone of the rest of the movie. This scene is typical of the majority of O’Neil’s interactions with women:
Variety is the tale of a woman who works at the ticket booth of a New York adult theater back in the 80s. At first, it’s just a job to make ends meet, but eventually she becomes drawn to the films and the patrons who watch them. My favorite scenes are when she describes porno movies in graphic, literary detail to her annoyed boyfriend. Luis Guzmán, who also appeared in the porn industry-centered Boogie Nights, plays the theater manager. (NOTE: The director of Variety is a woman. This may indicate a deeper feminist message, if you are inclined to look for one.)
H.O.T.S. stars Susan Kiger, who was featured on the cover of Playboy three times. That’s not the most important reason to watch the movie, but it does give you an idea of what you’re getting into. I honestly believe that H.O.T.S. is one of the greatest cinematic achievements in recorded history. If you were to just view random clips, you would undoubtedly conclude that it is an idiotic film. But, taken as a whole, it offers more truth than any flick with Danny Bonaduce in it should. By now, I believe that the topless football game at the climax has achieved legendary status.
