New movies are fucking wank. They’ve gotta push the boundaries and get more rape scenes in there. Clockwork Orange…now THAT was a fucking film. MsAnne, you’d probably like “Scum”. It’s a Ray Winstone film, look it up. Only thing for a good giggle worth watching now is midget porn these days.
Ah, our friend Gaspar!! No, I haven’t seen it, but I just watched the trailer… You recommend? I like the premise and how it presents visually (unsurprising, given the director). And I see that Cannes and Sundance gave it some kudos.
I miss a lot of review info on movies and new music because I don’t have a TV. Or enough friends with decent taste. Thanks for the heads-up, maybecakes. Have one of these: x
Bacc, please tell me that you didn’t enjoy Irreversible? It contains the most vile rape scene that I’ve ever seen portrayed on film. But no doubt some of the sick bastards who frequent this site would jizz all over themselves upon seeing it.
Irreversible was the most disturbing movie I have yet seen (as I refuse to watch A Serbian Film et al). I don’t think you could possibly enjoy it, and even that grim murder wasn’t satisfying as the viewer doesn’t know the vengeance / justice behind it, being all out of sequence and everything…
Having said that, being the most disturbing I’ve seen, it was also one of the most memorable for me. Art and film is sometimes like that, isn’t it?
I dunno, word, in some ways I think it WAS necessary. An eight minute rape scene is hard to watch, but it certainly wasn’t being glorified. You could taste the horror and despair of the victim, which I think is kind of important with a film that reflects true life.
If I, or a friend, or a relative, is ever raped and the rapist makes it to court, I would hope that the jury have seen something as truly gritty as Irreversible, so that they have a better understanding of what rape can be like. Too many people downplay it by imagining that it’s over quickly or that it’s not a traumatic and violent event.
You make some good points, but we’ll have to agree to disagree about what can be gained from seeing graphic rape on film. It’s one of those things that I honestly wish I could unsee. Much like an episode of New Girl.
Cos if it was so bad you wish you could “unsee” it. Why the fuck did you sit through it? Let alone an 8 minute rape scene. And why you would sit through anything with the title “New Girl” is beyond me.
my friend’s step-mother makes $89 every hour on the computer. She has been laid off for 10 months but last month her paycheck was $16847 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read more here CashLazy.com
Not sure I would watch Enter the Void, given the way it ends, but it’s a very cool concept, I gotta say. As for Megan is Missing – a single screenshot from that thing gave me nightmares. Brrr.
And there is something to the idea of making rape as uncomfortable a concept as possible on screen. It might give some people their sick jollies, but it also might make some people take the idea a little more seriously. I know at least one guy IRL who thinks that if the woman’s wearing a low-cut shirt, she’s asking for it. Kinda wish I could do the Clockwork Orange thing to him certain movies.
Because I saw it at the cinema, crusty. I don’t know how expensive it is to go to the cinema where you’re from, but it’s not cheap here. And when I pay good money to see a movie, on principal, I’ll be damned if I’m going to walk out of it, even if watching it is a hard task. Never done it except for one time. I walked out of Mamma Mia! when Pierce Brosnan started singing S.O.S. Now THAT was fucked up.
bluhevs, the rapist is extinguished, but like Bacchante said, you don’t know what’s going on at the time because the film runs backwards.
Popcorn is too oil/buttery, and it makes my nose itch when I crush it up and snort it. Some random totse article said it’s supposed to be like the new cocaine. I think I’m starting to feel kinda buzzed, anyone else try it out yet? I hear everyone’s doing it these days.
Not my choice, fella. I was on a girls’ night out and forced to take one for the team. Tried to, but just couldn’t. Me and the only other person with sense and taste in that group of birds went to the pub across the street until the movie was over.
If the Lamebook mods can’t even be bothered choosing funny posts, I highly doubt they’re interested in moderating discussions which include the word “rape”. So # 46, have a NiceCupOfCement, or fuck off to a Christian / scrapbooking / cake decorating site.
I’m even willing to bet somebody’s been stupid enough to do it. This sounds like a new cinnamon challenge kinda deally for youtube to me. Watching some poor hapless soul shovel a spoonful of quikrete into their mouth might cause me to die a little bit inside…of laughter.
