Top 10 Sexy Movies

Maria Schneider and Marlon Brando in Last Tango in Paris

Last Tango in Paris

Bernardo Bertolucci said he was inspired by the raw art of British painter Francis Bacon to tell the story of a young Parisienne and her sordid affair with an older American (Marlon Brando). Highly controversial when it first came out, considered obscene by some, and the most erotic movie ever made by others, "Last Tango in Paris" is as powerful today as it was in 1972. Bertolucci said of the girl's character that he wanted her like Lolita but more perverse. He succeeded!
