Sex in the Movies

Interesting interview with HANIF KUREISHI via Cinema Minima:

“When I was a young man, there was no sex in movies. You had to see ”Last Tango in Paris” to see sex, and it was thrilling and confusing and psychological. Now, of course, there’s too much sex. What I’m interested in is minds. With sex, you are vulnerable and crazed and disrupted. That is interesting, and you can’t get that in porno films. …

…In my work, the characters have reached the point when they hopefully meet the wrong person. It changes your life when you meet someone completely wrong. “

Foreign DVDs

Filmbrain always makes me want to see the movies he discusses but they’re never accessible on DVD. Not fair.
