Let’s do this: can someone in this thread compile a list of “important/historically significant” adult films that should be on LB. Then we can see about adding an exceptions list to our importer that uses this list.
Checking in on this again. With Vinegar Syndrome becoming more and more popular, it's a shame that a good portion of their catalog isn't even on the site because of this arbitrary rule.
Please let 2019 be the year we have this settled.
Still waiting on an update for this.
Checking in again to see what's going on. This is getting annoying, and seems like it would be the one of the easiest suggestions on here to get fixed.
Checking on this again, and will keep doing so until this issue is resolved.
I just check The Sinful Dwarf on TMDB in regards to Nick's comment, and it has indeed been changed to Adult. Come on Letterboxd, this kind of nonsense is why this whole filter just needs to be lifted.
Checking up on this again. I still think it's ridiculous that these films aren't allowed. It seems like creating a filter that each user can turn on or off should be simple enough.
Morbus Iff, I like what others have suggested where each person has a filter in their setting that can be turned on or off as to whether or not to see adult content. Then we wouldn't even have to worry about artwork.
Checking in again, as well.
It's upsetting that there are plenty of films I've seen that I can't add. We really should just do a filter that each person can turn off and on in their settings to specify whether they want to see adult films or not. I think that would be much simpler than creating an exception list and having to add stuff to it every time some one suggests something.
I agree with street 100%.
Like Nick's film, Images in a Convent (https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/30493-immagini-di-un-convento/) is a film that just happens to have some harder sex scenes in it, and really shouldn't be marked adult.

"Beyond the Green Door" that Cliff mentioned should be "Behind the Green Door", unless there's another movie that I haven't heard of and can't find. Some that I'll add:
Water Power (1977)
Aunt Peg Goes to Hollywood
Aunt Peg's Corruption
Taboo II (1982)
Taboo III (1984)
Teenage Twins (1976)
Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge (2008)
Some already mentioned below, but I'll add them to an actual list:
Long Jeanne Silver
This will probably have some cross over with what's already been mentioned, but I found a list some one made for what AVN voted as the 101 best adult movies. I think the fact that they're considered the best by what's essentially the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of the adult film world means that they should at least be taken into consideration. The list can be found at https://onedrive.live.com/view.aspx?resid=320BC2737BD0BAC8!246&cid=320bc2737bd0bac8&app=Excel&authkey=!AAN_IWh_Odh2DXg.
While I think adding films on an individual basis could word for now, I still think the best option will be to allow people to choose whether or not to filter out adult content, but that's just a suggestion.
Is the plan to do it on a film by film basis? If so, I think a good idea would be maybe just a simple page where people can recommend movies to be added to the exception list so that we're not creating a big jumbled list here, but I'll try to come up with some soon to help get things started.
Seriously, to not allow them is to not acknowledge their significance in the history of film.
I don't know why this isn't an option already. And a lot of the top lists are getting more and more useless or annoying.
You can browse by country from a film’s page. This is sub-optimal as you need to find a film from the country you’re interested in, in order to find more from that country. We plan to add a list of all countries and languages.
For right now, you can search with https://letterboxd.com/films/country/nameofthecountryyouwanthere.
For example, https://letterboxd.com/films/country/japan/
At this time there are performance and cacheability impacts of blocking members everywhere that preclude us from doing this. In the future we would like to address this better.
This really needs to be one of the site's top priorities. At the very least we need to start being able to remove stuff like this sexist garbage:https://letterboxd.com/caityperrie/film/red-sparrow/. Any updates on it?
We now have support for browsing by country and language. As some films have multiple languages listed, browsing French-language films (https://letterboxd.com/films/language/french/ as an example) will show English-language films as well (where those films have portions of dialog in French). We’d like to improve this in the future to be able to show films whose principal language is French.
This still doesn't seem to be working for user generated lists. Will this maybe be updated in the future?
This would also be great if there was a way to do this for older films that are considered lost. There are movies on the site that no one has seen since the 1920s, yet they have ratings and even reviews.
It's up now. After a change is made on tmdb, that info will not be pulled into Letterboxd until their script runs, which I think is every few hours.
Something similar to what Wes Anderson did here on his Top 10 Criterion Films.
Please! This would make my list making so much easier, so that I'm not having to explain things in the notes. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks that this is a good idea.
Forgive me if this is already possible and I didn't notice.
