A great introduction to films you might not have realized were a little less old fashioned than you thought. These films, made from 1930 to 1934 dealt with sex, drugs, violence and themes of anti-Americanism, homosexuality and anti-religion. It would take forty years for films to start dealing with these subjects again.
