Editorial Reviews

Visions of Ecstasy, an experimental art film made in 1989, is the only film ever to have been banned outright in the UK solely on the grounds of blasphemy. Further, its depiction and interpretation of the erotic imaginings of the 16th Century Carmelite nun, St. Teresa, were such that the film's banning was upheld in an historic judgment at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in a case that took seven years to reach its conclusion. Now, due to the abolition of the UK's blasphemy laws in 2008, Visions of Ecstasy is finally being released.

Also included on this disc is the director's nunsploitation feature, Sacred Flesh (2000) (in SD), in which a Mother Superior struggles with her sexual desires in a series of imagined dialogues with Mary Magdalene while her mind torments her with images of sexual perversion, lesbianism and sadomasochism along with the short film Axel. CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT - 18+ (Note: Estimated total running time reflects all three features, ''Visions of Ecstasy'', ''Sacred Flesh'' and ''Axel''. ''Sacred Flesh'' and ''Axel'' are in Standard Definition)

Don't waste your money. They really hyped up this film as "revolutionary" due to its explosive experimental content. The truth is, the subject could have been targeted in a more tasteful manner. I'm not an expert in the subject by all means, but I was very intrigued by the intense reviews this film had received, and of course the fact that it had been banned for a couple of decades made it that much more baffling. I was expecting to be blown away by the content, when in reality I ended up watching a really bad porno for a bit over a quarter of an hour, those are 15 minutes my friend and I will never get back. It was really strange, and not in a good way.

Nun exploitation at its very best. More intellectual than most films in this genre, and yet very erotic.

I never was able to get Sacred Flesh as there was no way to find it. Visions was junk. I just threw in the garbage.
