Visions of Ecstasy (1989)

Nigel Wingrove directs Louise Downie, Elisha Scott and Dan Fox in this short erotic fantasy where Saint Teresa of Ávila dreams of getting jiggy with the body of Jesus on the cross.

Banned in the U.K. by the BBFC for its blasphemous content, a school teacher (and freedom of speech campaigner) lost his job for selling VHS copies of this from his car boot. It mainly exists as a provocation. But it looks well made and can be quite sexy… if overly repetitive. Expect lots of milky flesh lingered on and writhing. Only really important historically rather than artistically.
