Bryn Pryor is an award-winning screenwriter and director whose credits include ‘Corruption,’ ‘Icon’ and ‘Cowboys & Engines.’ His latest documentary, ‘ X-Rated: The Greatest Adult Movies of All Time ,’ premiered on Showtime on February 6, 2015 at 11pm EST/PST. 

 When we started shooting our documentary, X-Rated: The Greatest Adult Movies of All Time , our goal was to prove that there are exceptions to the rule that all porn films are embarrassing, cheesy shlock. Okay, most of them are ; but there are a few examples of real excellence. We narrowed it down to 32 for the final film, but of those, the below movies are my personal top five best adult movies ever :

Henry Paris’ adult masterpiece is, well, a masterpiece. It’s smart, funny, sexy, well-acted and well-written. Constance Money is fresh and gorgeous. Jamie Gillis was the best porn actor ever to grace the adult biz, and he was never better than he was in Misty Beethoven . If the aspiration of the time was to make a “real” movie with sex in it, no one has done it better, even 39 years later.

It's not only film buffs who will treasure this humane, vivid (but alas rare) Berlin version of Erich Kästner's classic children's novel. A naïve country boy has his money stolen on a train, and trails the suspected thief through the city, aided by a resourceful gang of city boys. Emmerich Pressburger and Billy Wilder worked on the witty script; Allan Gray (Colonel Blimp) did the marvellous music.
