The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover (1989)
by Peter Greenaway

Visually stunning, relentlessly provocative, perversely playful and elevated by Michael Nyman's gorgeous music, Greenaway's masterpiece is a thinly veiled political allegory and a critique of the numerous atrocities of the contemporary world, boasting a Shakespearean plot full of sinful passions and primitive revenge.
