    Default Movies about sexual repression

    I'm talking about stuff like

    Haneke - The piano teacher
    Solondz - Happiness
    Zulawski - Possession

    movies that investigate the traumatic effects of the repression (though it could be even in a more general sense than just sexual) made by society on the individual.
    What are other titles that could be mentioned alongside those above?
    What time is the next swan?

    Funnily enough, I watched Brief Encounter this evening.

    I've seen it many years ago, but I remember that one as a good romantic love movie more than anything else... but maybe I don't remember it so well.

    probably Mankiewicz with his Suddenly, last summer, even if it's less a punch to the gut than those titles could be added to the list above.
