Timeout's 50 Most Controversial Films Ever Made

From their website: "Enter with caution: The most controversial movies of all time don't play gently. Filled with sex scenes, sacrilege, shocking violence and all manner of foul language, these films have been banned by popes, parents and cultural watchdogs around the world. Then again, a few of them have actually won Academy Awards and can be named among the best movies of all time. Most crucially, these infamous provocations open our eyes, ears and minds to the forward edge of cinema, taking the art form to places it wouldn't have gone. So close the door, brace yourself and check out the 50 most controversial movies of all time."
