The 90s delivered all sorts of goodness, like flannel, grunge music and controversial movies. You’ve surely seen many of these, but it probably been a while. You should totally watch these controversial 90s movies again.

Crash (1996): A TV director gets into a serious car accident and survives. But instead of resuming his regular life, he is sucked into an underworld of people who fetishize car accidents.

  • Controversial because: Crash earned an NC-17 rating for the combination of sex and violence that disgusted many viewers.

    Kids and 8 MM are two of my favorite movies. I will have to disagree with you a bit because Kids would still be very controversial if it was released today. A virgin getting AIDS after getting raped? Yeah, that’d probably get banned from theaters. Otherwise, great article.

    Boys Don’t Cry should be on this list. Controversial because: gender identity/transgender issues.

    the heroine… yeah… she is obviously bad

    “Snuff films” are films that show the actual (non-acted) death of a human being. Nudity or porn is not a requirement

    I still think of that fucker “Telly” form Kids, when we watched it we rented it and thought it was a doc. I was sick for weeks over this movie, now i see all the stars from it, and all i can think of is the seen where the girl is getting raped by an guy in her sleep and shes giving a guy HIV that doesnt even knows it.., it just makes me ill and should be re released today, it would still piss people off..

      Only saw it once in college over 16 years ago & STILL want to stomp on Telly and Casper’s throats.

    Nothing “bad” about Eyes Wide Shut, maybe not a Kubrick masterpiece like 2001 or Clockwork Orange but still good enough. Stan the man couldn’t make a bad film even if he tried.

  • Drew Douglas

    EWS rocked.

  • Mark Balthazor

    Where’s Fight Club? That movie was practically blamed for the Columbine shootings, despite being released after them. The movie even got Oprah’s undies in a bunch. Oprah’s undies, there’s a horrifying image. I bet a whole troop of Boy Scouts could camp in those things.
