The Incest Movies
If you have ever watched any of the incest movies, you know what an upsetting experience it can be. From ‘Spanking the Monkey’ to ‘Delta,’ these movies are nothing short of a twisted nightmare. But before you judge them by their horrific content, let’s look at how each one of them relates to the idea of incest.
‘Spanking the Monkey’
While ‘Spanking the Monkey’ may be a bit campy, it does offer a realistic and disturbing view of incest. Director David O. Russell makes this incest movie feel surprisingly real and honest, and his style of storytelling and editing is both harrowing and funny. Throughout, the filmmakers keep the camera steady and dispassionately document the wayward passions of his characters.
Despite its unsettling subject matter, this low-budget film from a 35-year-old writer-director is a hit. Its star, Jeremy Davies, delivers a strong debut performance that effectively registers the ups and downs of confusion at the age of 19. Although the character is portrayed in a somewhat stoic light, the film is often remarkably witty and charming.
‘Delta’ is a controversial incest movie, but it’s worth seeing for its beautiful aesthetic and disturbing content. The story revolves around a young man named Mihail and his half-sister Fauna. The villagers regard them as outsiders and are not happy about the idea of a half-sister living alone.
The film is slow and minimalist, but it has some great cinematography. Its director, Matyas Erdely, is fond of abstract patterns, and has shot a number of beautiful landscapes and scenes with inky black water. The film also has a sombre funeral scene, and the performances are both excellent.
Ma Mere is based on a controversial novel by Georges Bataille about an incestuous relationship between a 17-year-old boy and his 43-year-old mother. The French actress Isabelle Huppert stars in the top-billed role, but the movie doesn’t live up to expectations. The film is a tight-knit, uncommercial romp that focuses more on implicit sexuality than explicit deviance.
The film’s story centers on a young man who recently lost his father. He is taken in by his mother, who introduces him to a world of sexual excess. It is a film that would have pleased Freud. A collection of p*rnography is found in the young man’s mother’s home, where he masturbates and grinds on it, and later, urinates on it.
‘That Girl in Yellow Boots’
The film ‘That Girl in Yellow Boots’ explores the topic of incest in a very human way. The film is about a young woman who comes to India to find her birth father. She works as a masseur in order to make ends meet and earns extra cash doing ‘hand jobs’ for her father. It isn’t a movie that will appeal to the moral high ground, but it is a brilliant attempt to push the envelope of Indian cinema.
Director Anurag Kashyap says he wanted to explore themes he had lived with for years. He grew up a victim of child abuse, and he wanted to make a film that dealt with those issues. The film is shot with tight shots and Rajeev Ravi’s cinematography is gritty and real. It was shot in thirteen days, but the song sequences took even longer.
‘The Royal Tenenbaums’
“The Royal Tenenbaums” is a 2001 American comedy-drama film directed by Wes Anderson and co-written by Owen Wilson. It stars Danny Glover and is loosely based on a nonexistent novel by J. D. Salinger. It follows the lives of three gifted siblings as they try to repair a broken relationship with their father.
“The Royal Tenenbaums” is a family drama wrapped in a fantasy. Despite its length, the film is jam-packed with metaphors and poetic undertones. The movie celebrates its family’s quirkiness without mocking it. As a result, “The Royal Tenenbaums” is an admirable look at ordinary problems.
‘Strella’ is a Greek film about a transgender transsexual prostitute who discovers her estranged father is her son. As they kiss, she tells Yiorgos, “I’m a tranny!” After revealing her true identity, Yiorgos becomes horrified when he discovers she has seduced his father. The film depicts the trauma of betrayal and redemption in love.
The film is a disturbing look at father-daughter incest. Actress Lu Montesinos plays a woman who is abused by her mother and father. During the film, she becomes a masseuse and gives handjobs for extra money. As the film progresses, she learns that her father was an incestuous man who molested another woman, her childhood friend. She realizes that her father had an impure relationship with another man who was a member of a pro-incest cult. She is a victim of this relationship and is later killed by her father.
‘The Cement Garden’
The Cement Garden is a film that explores a family’s history of incest. It’s based on the first novel by British author Ian McEwan, and the plot revolves around four siblings’ lives. After the death of their father, their mother, Julie, takes over the care of their four children. Although Jack is reluctant to let Julie take control of his family, he ultimately concedes to Julie’s wishes. Afterward, the four children must decide what to do with their mother. In addition to this, the house they live in is likely to be torn down.
Incest is a taboo subject in society because it goes against nature. Even horror movie lovers cringe at the thought of incest. But Ian McEwan’s writing makes “The Cement Garden” much more than just an incest novel. The film is also a story about childhood, innocence, death, and all the darker things that make us human.
