A movie I suggest you all see
« on: August 29, 2007, 09:10:39 pm »
It's called Irreversible (with a bunch of little lines over letters, because the dirty French made it)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0290673/
Quite possibly the only film I've ever seen that can be best described as "brutal". The opening title sequence could bring about a seizure, the second scene could make some people throw up and cry at the same time (and that's just the camera work), and there's a rape scene that is so messed up and realistic that it causes most of the theaters it's played in to nearly empty.

IMO, the ideas presented are a little too once sided and pessimistic, and is lopsided in its presentation of men and women (with men being brutal monsters, but I think that's a somewhat unintentional depiction, as it tries to point out that women are fucked up too, but just present it in the same visceral way). Still, it's a great movie, and I reccommend it highly.

Best thing about that imdb page:

Also, it runs backwards.  Didn't Memento do this two years earlier?

Yea, Memento ran backwards and forwards. I loved that movie, but dammit someone stole it...or my boyfriend's mom still has it or something, I forget.

This movie sounds good, but the rape scene thing...I don't know. You can shoot people, stab them, cut them into little pieces, explode them, smash them, whatever and I'll watch no problem, but sexual violence, esp. rape, is probably the one thing in movies that will actually disturb me and make me feel uncomfortable.

I'd have to think about it...
There's no sun shine coming through her ass, if you are sure of your penis.

Paranoia is a disease unto itself, and may I add, the person standing next to you, may not be who they appear to be, so take precaution.

If there is no order in your sexual life it may be difficult to stay with a whole skin.

Speaking of disturbing French movies, one came out a few years ago called "rape me"... sort of like Thelma and Louise meets Monster, two women get raped and go on a sexual revenge killing spree.

Thing was, the two leading women were French porn stars, so they were comfortable with actual sex on camera, so the sex/rape scenes are incredibly graphic.

Then ending was crap, but so what?


Also, for depressing revelations about the human condition, check out any of Lars von Trier, or the Dogme 95 movement.

Guuugh. I could go on a whole rant about rape scenes, but I will leave it at: they really bother me.

I would otherwise be interested in both this movie and the one LMNO mentioned, but rape scenes.... No. I can generally handle them when they are insinuated, or very quick, but really... Is there any purpose behind having drawn out, graphic rape scenes? Really?

Well, exactly.

And I have a gripe with anything that encourages rape as a sexy idea.

There are rape fantasies/role plays/etc, which are totally a-okay. People have them, and there's nothing wrong with that.

And then there's actual rape, and having it reinforced that it's arousing. That's different.

Argh. Sorry, I am going to try not to get preachy. Rape is just one of those things I get really aggressive about.

You know I was kidding, right?






As opposed to in the 70s-80s, movie rape scenes these days do not have an undertone of erotica.

Once again, I'm surprised that people here can be disturbed or bothered by anything other than mankind's ignorance. It's not the act of man's violence against man that should disturb us, but the reasoning and logic used to justify man's violence against man.

I would mostly agree with that.

See above, me saying I am going to try to avoid getting too ranty/preachy about rape, because I could really go off on that topic, so I won't. But in general, yes, that is true.
