Movie Moment #8

Also this week:

In Praise of the Mass Experience: The Ohio Science Fiction Marathon- tickets are still available. Hint hint.

Cinema's Best No-Sex Sex Scenes, Part 1 and Part 2- I've been busy with other stuff, so I was only able to do one blurb. But if you're only gonna write about one scene for a piece like this, you can't get much better than PERSONA.

I think "Out Of Sight" has one of the best no-sex sex scenes. It's one of the sexiest scenes I've seen, amazingly edited, and it ends right after the first kiss.

Yeah, that's a pretty awesome scene, but the point of the list was to spotlight scenes that weren't lead-ins to sex, but scenes that substituted some other activity- talk, eating, dance- for sex altogether. I actually wanted to write about this scene originally, but upon further review, I concluded that it didn't really fit this description.

In that vein, I'd also nominate that great food scene between Ben Chaplin and Uma Thurman in "The Truth About Cats and Dogs".

Paul C. said...

That's a good one too, but we were limited to 10. Although I'll keep it in mind if we ever do a follow-up list.
