Top 10 tangled love triangles in film

The tangled love triangle is such a cinematic trope that we could probably put together a list for every year (or a list of Top 10 love triangles with bad ’80s haircuts… or Top 10 love triangles starring Reese Witherspoon…). We decided to limit this list to love-triangle films we actually enjoyed (and not in a guilty-pleasure kind of way) — which is why you won’t find the Bella-Edward-Jacob affair here, despite the ubiquity of “Team Edward” and “Team Jacob” merchandise. Same goes for PEARL HARBOR (2001), which attempted to make the love triangle a heroic response to war; or WILD THINGS (1995), which accessorized the love triangle with hot tubs and champagne (and was really more of a lust triangle, anyway); or INDECENT PROPOSAL (1993), which theorized the love triangle as a financial and real estate decision; or MY BEST FRIEND’S WEDDING (1997), which was a terrible movie despite championing off-key karaoke.

If you spend a lot of time analyzing movie sex scenes like we do, you might find yourself rolling your eyes at how many onscreen couples manage to have sex without ever showing any skin… or who fall asleep with a sheet covering them just so… or who always put on a shirt and underpants when they get out of bed to pee, no matter how raunchy things just got. Where’s the nudity? Where’s the raunch? Well, if you’re looking to really steam things up this summer, check out the Hot Summer Nights series: every Friday and Saturday night in August, there is a triple bill of films designed to do just that, from Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN to DIARY OF A NYMPHOMANIAC. For further feverish research on your own time, you might want to look up the work of the following 10 directors who are very, shall we say, comfortable with onscreen nudity. And we mean the real kind — not the CGI kind. Only after we finished this list did we realize it was entirely male, which we suppose shouldn’t surprise us — after all, most of the nudity is female. But we dug up male nudity — or, at least, equal-opportunity nudity — where we could. You’re welcome!

Can you handle all this heat? No, seriously, can you? Because it’s not just the weather that’s hot — the movies on offer this week are seriously steamy, from the downright uncomfortable (DELIVERANCE) to the height of young lust (Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIÉN).

Our Thriller Thursdays selection is John Boorman’s DELIVERANCE, with its dueling banjos, menacing hillbillies and all.

RUDO Y CURSI reunites Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna

I was licking my chops as I headed into the premiere of Rudo y Cursi–reuniting Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna. And so was the rest of the audience. What talent! This is the very first venture from Cha Cha Cha, the production company formed by Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

Sundance 2009: Different Perspectives On This Year's Festival

It’s hard enough to leave sunny Los Angeles for freezing Park City but this year, I’m just back from the tropical warmth of Hawaii. I don’t expect much sympathy but still, can you concede that it’s a shock to the system? Shorts and tee shirts are out of the suitcase; long johns and unflattering outerwear…
