The expectations are quite high and on the face value we feel Hollywood has some interesting movies on the subject but just like an iceberg, the 90% weightage is below the surface. Agreed they have made some sensitive films but overall effect and the surrounding echoes are quite evident which are hard to ignore and run through a lot their movies. The word is played with ignoble and degraded intent which is sadly eminent. ALAS, it fails us too! Realism and Authenticity seems to leave the directors mind and all the faux pas of imagination is left when talking about the taboo subject; Act of SEX. Why and How? Here presenting to you, “10” things stating how Hollywood too can’t get it right:
1. Foreplay is not for reel life
This one tops the list as it seems to be off in every Hollywood film which delves into the subject of “love making”. The process, seamlessly presents itself with always a preface of protagonists, drunk on conversations or just plain drunk and jump right in the sack going at each other from the word go like bunny rabbits. The subtlety at which the lovers look at each other, the delicacy of the embrace, the first touch, and the goose bumps felt when the two bodies become one soul; all are surpassed or just insincerely handled.
2. Kinky sex is the special for 365 days
Kinky Sex (BDSM), the whole idea can be enticing and exciting but the way we see it in the movies, it leaves us with bad taste and brain indigestion. The wooden banal kinky advances of Christian Grey in the “50 Shades Series” had the ladies swooning in planet Venus but not the one which we inhabit. From the counting of whips (like Madhuri Dixit in ek, do, teen song), blindfolding and swooning that ice-cube, which if you see in retrospect, through-out both the movies, it’s the best love making scene ever filmed between a living and a non-living thing (the block of frozen water rather than poor Ana). Along with us, Ana will remain barred from realist kinky sex. An inescapable void, indeed!
