We are all aware that cinema is one of the best avenues to watch our fantasies come to life. The amazing storylines paired with well-executed acting is a recipe for box-office success. As we know, the artistic freedom involved in filmmaking is what drives certain titles into greatness. However, even in movie theaters, there are certain limits to expressing a full creative display. The sensuality and boldness found in erotic movies or the violence and vulgar language from action movies are ever-present. These have been staples of successful flicks throughout the years. It is also with these themes that censorship comes in. Ever heard of X-rated movies? Nowadays, this term is no longer used as it was replaced by the NC-17 rating. When the Motion Picture Association of America altered its traditional standards for evaluating films, a lot of studios tried their best to avoid having an NC-17 rated film on their roster.

While it is of utmost importance that filmmakers become aware of on-screen restrictions, some of them have surrendered their movies for unfavorable ratings in order to avoid compromising their movie's story. Of course, if certain filmmakers have set their sights on specific target audiences, swallowing these kinds of ratings won't matter. However, those who aim for a larger market and profit surely do their best to avoid being branded as an NC-17 rated movie. Up to now, movie fans can still find lots of unrated movies online. The presence of such content in the current cinema is also proof that artistic freedom still thrives in the movie industry. In this list, you will find some of the best NC-17 rated films you need to watch.
