Is any other art form more potent than cinema in exploring pleasures of the flesh? 'Tom of Finland' is the pseudonym of Touko Valio Laaksonen, whose highly eroticised drawings – somewhere between high art and software pornography – allowed its creator to escape into a world of the physical ideal. It's a concept cinema is familiar with, often reflecting the desires of the viewer. To accompany the release of 'Tom of Finland' on Curzon Home Cinema on Friday 11th August, we have curated a selection of films that find people either escaping the confines of their world through some kind of physical intimacy, as in 'The Handmaiden', or who push their bodies to extremes in order to challenge the order of things.
