From Film to Fetish Object: The Year's Noteworthy DVDs
DVDs are more than just plastic discs with movies tucked inside. At their best these strangely compelling objects owe their appeal to a combination of elements, one that might begin with a movie but also includes the extras: the packaging, the program notes, the menu design, the commentary tracks and a wide range of supplementary material, from deleted scenes to entire features. Aligning all these things requires genuine editorial skill, just as getting what are often dirty, faded old prints to look and sound sharp and new again demands technical ability and artistic judgment.
Ever since its release, Fifty Shades of Grey has become the go-to sexual fantasy film for countless people who love erotic, romantic movies. However, it's not the only movie out there that fans of the genre should check out if they're looking for more R-rated content in their lives. There are plenty more sexy movies around that are worth giving a shot, including tons of sexy movies on Netflix that, in my eyes at least, are even dirtier than Fifty Shades.
