Further proof American Directors should leave erotics to other countries
19 February 2017 | by rainleaveswindSee all my reviews

Exceptionally unsexy, almost childish approach to eroticism. Note to director, this movie is for adults not children.

For the longest time now, I would argue since around 2005, the American movie industry, perpetuated by mostly American female actors, have been evoking a near radical Christian view of sex and nudity. So, directors, even when they are paid to produce such content like this film, are not able to really liberate themselves, or allow themselves to push some boundaries even when it's supposed to. They just don't even know what that means anymore. And when they attempt it it's always so artificial, contrived and silly, again, such as this film. At least the first director in the film film showed off Johnson's beauty and body. This guy seemed to want to avoid that.

It seems American filmmakers feel an innate duty to hold back and editing is the tool in which directors and editors communicate their silly fear of it all. Eg, how they can shoot a beautiful actor walking across a room nude but they instinctively tell themselves, oh, that's too revealing, have to cut that way down, show as little as possible. But yes, pull her hair!, slam her around!, grind on her! But no frontal nude shots, because, that's not sex. This is the new American directors mindset. Where in other countries it's the opposite, a lack of fear and a desire to show the body over artificial explicitness.

In the end, this movie is more like an annoying MTV music video than it is an erotic story. The music over the sex is so annoying and childish. And rather than natural sensuality and beautiful naked bodies we get this absurd hyper-stylized depiction of sex where people work too hard to make it "seem" explicit.
