It takes a true woman to understand that the purest form of love is to love a man who denies himself to her - a man who inspires worship, because he has no need for any woman, because he has himself. Feminists were outraged with some of the misogynistic images - such as the obscene female poses of the supine furniture in the Korova bar, the prolonged rape of a big-breasted 'devotchka' (Shirley Jaffe) on an empty opera house stage to the tune of Rossini’s The Thieving Magpie, a gigantic penis sculpture being used as a murder weapon on the Cat Lady, a sped-up orgy (within a threesome composed of two females and a male) performed to the tune of the William Tell Overture, and a view of the protagonist's snake gliding toward a woman's vagina.
And who is better, more beautiful, more powerful, more perfect... more strong, more masculine, extraordinary, more... The most infamous was the rape scene of a couple in an ultra-modern, opulent house by sociopath Alex's (Malcolm Mc Dowell) gang of derby-hatted droogs (Pete, Georgie, and Dim) who were wearing masks with comical noses.
You're doing it all wrong" - when she deviated) while she kneeled between his legs. The subversive film was hotly debated when it was released - both highly praised and objectionable for its bleak outlook, and for its pairing of comedy with 'ultra-violence' - including two rape scenes.
Jonathan soon resented Bobbie's hints at becoming more domestic and trapped-hitched, as she vulnerably drowned in depressing despair. Finding himself dysfunctionally impotent, Jonathan resorted to using the pleasuring services of paid prostitute Louise (Rita Moreno in a cameo) to massage his ego (and more) in the film's final scene.
He then berated and insulted her ("Answer me, you ball-busting, castrating, son of a cunt bitch! Obsessively, he had her recite a carefully-worded script (he yelled at her - "God-damn it! At the time, Stanley Kubrick's randomly ultra-violent, over-indulgent, graphically-stylized film of the near future - and most controversial film - was one of only two movies rated X on its original release (the other was Midnight Cowboy (1969)) that was nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award.
The prurient title of this raw, profanity-laden, taboo-breaking Mike Nichols film (with a script by satirist and cartoonist Jules Feiffer), meaning 'sexual intercourse,' brought millions of patrons into the theatres for its character-based tale of the exploits and sexual encounters of two Amherst college roommates: shy and naive Sandy (singer Art Garfunkel) and narcissistic, predatory womanizer Jonathan (Jack Nicholson).

Blue is the twelfth and final feature film by director Derek Jarman, released four months before his death from AIDS-related complications.It was brought as a major case before the US Supreme Court, which found in 1974 that the film was not obscene and "did not depict sexual conduct in a patently offensive way." The court ruled that a local Georgia law prohibiting the distribution of the "obscene" material had gone too far.Nowadays, the film would be considered tame, with its minor amount of nudity or explicit sexual activity, although its dialogue was ripe, candidly frank and open for its time.On its premiere, on 19 September 1993, Channel 4 and BBC Radio 3 collaborated on a simultaneous broadcast so viewers could enjoy a stereo soundtrack.Radio 3 subsequently broadcast the soundtrack separately as a radio play and it was later released as a CD.The film has been released on DVD in Germany and in Italy.
