The meaning of controversial is: 'the subject of intense public argument, disagreement, or disapproval'. Which movie (no documentaries) do you think is the most controversial?My list: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls095785043/

i really love your list hoekkie....great choices that may have never come to mind otherwise...well done...

and for that...my vote goes to bonnie and clyde...people forget it was one of the first films where you actually rooted for the bad guys to win...nowadays that's common place...back then not so much....

Hoekkie,

One of the films on your list is considered an adult film.
The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011)

When you compare:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?adult=include&lists=ls095785043
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?adult=exclude&lists=ls095785043

You will notice that Human Centipede is excluded when filtering out adult titles.

In its current state, your list may not be viewable by people who prefer not to see adult titles. I'm not certain what will happen if you poll were to go live. I will have to ask the IMDb technical staff about this matter.

Hoekkie, I've just noticed another thing... Deep Throat (1972) has photos/covers which are usually strictly prohibited with adult titles. I understand that this might be a special case, but still... 

Or covers are eligible for inclusion in adult titles, given that they meet the criteria of inclusion in the first place?..

Hoekkie,

I stand corrected: Deep Throat (1972) is the restricted title.

I've updated the title of this thread at your request to:
