The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)

I've never understood the following this movie gets, but then that's how cult classics work. Rocky is full of sexual assault, emotional manipulation, forcible confinement and aggrandized megalomaniacal narcissism. It doesn't seem worthy of of its celebration, or canonization.
