Fall has become the season for movies that feature kinky sex and revel in bad behavior.


1. Secretary

Waifish Gyllenhaal gets into some serious kink with her new boss (Spader).
Vice Tally: B&D, S&M, spanking, masturbation, self-mutilation, water sports.

Spader jerks off on Gyllenhaal while forcing her to stare at a dead earthworm.

Little onscreen sex, but Jagger is at his creepiest and steals the show.

3. The Rules of Attraction

Starring James Van Der Beek and Shannyn Sossamon. Directed by Roger Avary (Lions Gate; October 11).

Van Der Beek vacillates between virginal Sossamon and her male pal. Based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel.

4. Auto Focus

Starring Greg Kinnear, Willem Dafoe, and Maria Bello. Directed by Paul Schrader (Sony Classics; October 18).

Kinnear, as swinging sixties TV star Bob Crane (Hogan’s Heroes), videotapes himself having sex with chicks. Lots of chicks.
