The film briefly depicts its namesake, Chappaqua, New York, a sleepy hamlet in Westchester County, in a few minutes of wintry panoramas. The hamlet is an overt symbol of drug-free, suburban childhood innocence, and is also one of the film's many nods to Native American culture. The northern Westchester area had been heavily inhabited by Native Americans; the word chappaqua itself derives from the Wappinger (a nation of the Algonquin tribe) word for 'laurel swamp'.
The Girl on a Motorcycle or better yet, Naked Under Leather (as the film was called in France), was a British / French film directed in 1968 by Jack Cardiff. The film starred Marianne Faithfull and was due to air at Cannes but due to the May 68 riots it never did. The plot is fairly simple: A woman leaves her husband and zips away on her motorcycle to be with her lover. Plenty of sexual and psychedelic experiences happen along the way.

A pointless yet genius film by the brilliant Derek Jarman featuring butt loads of punk icons and Malcolm McLaren proteges. Queen Elizabeth I is transported forward through time and arrives in 70's punk England. Vivienne Westwood hated it.
The Hunger was Tony Scott's 1983 directorial debut that starred David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and a smoking hot Susan Sarandon. The film is a fashionable vampire flick that drew from the then, full formed Goth subculture, and opens immediately with "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus. Roger Ebert hated it, but in retrospect it's actually pretty good. There's a number of steamy sex scenes, including a lesbian scene between Sarandon and Deneuve, and for whatever it's worth, Premiere Magazine rated the movie #5 on their "Hottest Sex Scenes of All Time" list.
A few others on that list include:
