Go To

Movies with tremendously lengthy titles.



In General:

  • Frequently seen in the titles of Japanese porno movies (adult videos, or AVs): one example is I Who Throughout My School Years Have Had So Little Experience Romantically – To My Home, Now Have At Least a Few Young Ladies Coming to Enjoy AVs With Me – Upon Watching Erotic Scenes, Start to Get Restless and Cheeks Turning Red, Obviously Getting So Wet Throughout the Panties and With Many Embarrassing Stains!

By Creator:

  • The late experimental filmmaker Owen Land took the Long Title and made it into an art form, with a significant percentage of his filmography consisting of this trope. To wit: On the Marriage Broker Joke as Cited by Sigmund Freud in Wit and its Relation to the Unconscious, or Can the Avant-Garde Artist Be Wholed?, Faulty Pronoun Reference, Comparison and Punctuation of the Restrictive or Non-Restrictive Element, New Improved Institutional Quality: In the Environment of Liquids and Nasals a Parasitic Vowel Sometimes Develops, and arguably his most famous work, Film in Which There Appear Edge Lettering, Sprocket Holes, Dirt Particles, Etc. Bonus points for most of these being Word Salad Titles, too.
  • Director Ray Dennis Steckler loves this trope.
  • Many titles of the movies by Italian director Lina Wertmuller such as:
    • Travolti da un insolito destino nell'azzurro mare d'agosto (aka Swept Away)
    • Notte d'estate con profilo greco, occhi a mandorla e odore di basilico (aka Summer Night with Greek Profile, Almond Eyes and Scent of Basil)
    • La fine del mondo nel nostro solito letto in una notte piena di pioggia (aka A Night Full of Rain)
    • Film d'amore e d'anarchia, ovvero 'stamattina alle 10 in via dei Fiori nella nota casa di tolleranza... (aka Love and Anarchy)
    • Fatto di sangue fra due uomini per causa di una vedova. Si sospettano moventi politici (aka Blood Feud)
