Tools    





people What do you think is the best mainstream
movie that deal with incest?

"Close my Eyes" is a very good one I guess,
it is about an unhappy married sister played
by Saskia Reeves who have a sexual relationship
with her brother played by Clive Owen when he
visit her, Alan Rickman played the husband.

do you know of any other mainstream movie that
deal with incest.

Through twists revealed by the end of the movies, Chinatown (1974), Angel Heart (1987) and Lone Star (1996) have incest as plot points, but I wouldn't say they "deal" with the issue (Lone Star addresses it more than the other two).

In the final bit of The Grifters (1990), a desperate mother seduces her confused son in order to steal his money (though they don't actually "do" anything), and in The Manchurian Candidate (1962) an incestual relationship between mother and son is certainly implied - though not addressed (it was the '60s after all). The House of Yes (1997) is an off-beat dark comedy that has an incestual relationship between brother and sister. Natural Born Killers has it as the backstory of the Juliette Lewis character, presented as a sitcom from Hell.

The Barbara Streisand flick Nuts also has a plot twist that reveals incest, and there is an attempt to deal with it in a serious manner, though looking back as an adult and finally confronting her abusive father. A Thousand Acres (1997) does this too.

The Color Purple (1985) and The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys (2002) also feature incest. I think one of the patient's subplots in Girl, Interrupted (1999) is ultimately about incest too.

A darkly comic coming-of-age flick that uses incest rather plainly is Spanking the Monkey (1994), where a son home from college caring for his mother, who is house-ridden due to a broken leg, starts a bizarre consentual relationship.




Those are all mainstream - or in the case of the few that are more recent independent films, films that garnered a lot of mainstream critical attention. As for which is the "best", I suppose that depends entirely in what you're looking for.

Mother! Oh, God! Mother! Blood!
The relationship between Norman and his mother (dead and alive) is considered incestuous in Psycho.

The relationship between J.J. Hunsucker (Burt Lancaster) and his sister in Sweet Smell of Success may also be considered incestuous.

No, there is no incest in Deliverance.
Of course I know what incest is! I live in West Virginia, the capital of incest. No they don't show or tell that there is incest in the movie, but it's kinda obvious that those people are inbred. Have you even seen Dileverance?



Seen Deliverance lots of times. There isn't any incest in the plot, and certainly no acts of incest are commited on screen. That banjo-playin' mongoloid may well be the byproduct of incest, but it could just as well be any number of factors that left him that way, from poor prenatial care to lack of nutrition to repeatedly dropping him on his noggin.



And do people really still live in West by-God Virginia? I would think anyone who can at least crawl would leave there as soon as possible, if not sooner.

I already said there isn't any incest shown or talked about, but what do you expect from people who look and act like that?! And yes people do still live in "West by-God-Virginia," and what's wrong with it?

Hi
I'm pretty sure Anger Management wasn't an incest movie unless Marissa Tomei was Adam Sandler's sister.

Wow!

I can't believe it!

Somebody's first post and it isn't a "there was this movie, that came out ten years ago, that has a guy and a girl in it, I can't remember the title."

Welcome to the forum.
