Probably one of the most controversial movies I've ever seen. This movie is not only a work of art itself, but it has helped shape and inspire other works of art like and unlike itself. This movie was able to set the standard for things not commonly seen by viewers in the time period it was released. In seeing these things, society has been able to accept more graphic material with much less sensitivity.
