An erotic film is defined by its cinematic state of being as well as its physical intimacy. It’s the undercurrent of a picture that is otherwise devoid of sexual content. It’s in the music, the camera work, and even the way characters exchange glances. These films were lauded for focusing on the more obscene aspects of the story.
