It's just that, rather than the strange, hairless, sheeny creatures of actual porn, you've got Tony Leung or Chloe Sevigny demonstrating their commitment to their craft. Porn is plentiful, so why are scenes depicting sexuality with emotion so rare in films? And yet as Lee will surely know , just the suggestion of actual sex is enough to pique the world's interest, and for the film to take its place alongside those other titles alleged to have gone that extra few inches in the name of realism. You're so hyper He never said anything else. Most sex scenes are about covering things up, rather than exposing. To me the boldness of the story was unprecedented, particularly against the backdrop of the most macho, glorious, patriotic war against the Japanese. It's immaterial - because its power didn't come through biological accuracy, but the emotional backdrop against which it took place, Nicholas Roeg's direction, and yes, the performances of the actors. There are people who know about me who will be curious. What's always been dishonest about the likes of 9 Songs and The Brown Bunny is the slippery appeal to the audience that the sex is somehow scaling new heights of raw and fearless truth - when, in fact, it's just another performance sold as a non-performance, like everything else you see in a film. Truth can be painful and frightening. A doctor publicly warned viewers saying, in effect: Lots of people, whether you're making a movie or doing a painting, you feel compelled to be honest. It's a function you have to get over with so you can get on with the story. With his new film, the NCrated, Mandarin-language spy thriller Lust, Caution, the Oscar-winning director is once again ignoring the rules of commercial filmmaking. Is it possible people will go see this film because they're titillated by the rating? It's uncomfortable, but I feel compelled to communicate with other people.
