1. Secretary (2002)

63 Metascore

Director: Steven Shainberg | Stars: James Spader, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jeremy Davies, Lesley Ann Warren

Votes: 79,259 | Gross: $4.06M

One of my favorite BDSM films. I generally prefer the woman on top, but this heart-warming film is excellent at exploring the various quirks and eccentricities of people drawn to this kind of power exchange. It also illustrates how important self-awareness, education and acceptance are when it comes to this subject. James Spader's character is a perfect example of what happens when one shutters off that side of their character and tries to repress their needs and desires, as opposed to exploring them openly, learning about them and accepting them as part of who you are. Maggie Gyllenhaal's character is such a breath of fresh air with her open enthusiasm and easy acceptance, both for the audience and for Mr. Grey. The whole film's done in a light-hearted style that makes it a sheer delight all across the board.
