British director and screenwriter Ken Russell is known for his controversial style, especially with regard to sexuality and the Church. His 1971 film The Devils, based on Aldous Huxley's book The Devils of Loudun, features possessed nuns stripping off and taking part in a mass orgy with a statue of Christ.  The film was banned or heavily edited in most countries.
