Nymphomaniac

This two-part film (with a large cast including Shia LaBeouf, Uma Thurman, and Christian Slater) centers on a self-proclaimed nymphomaniac who recounts her life story and sexcapades to a stranger who discovers her in an alley behind his apartment. It's pretty clear why this one - with scenes of both simulated and unsimulated sex - was rated NC-17.
