A challenge for movie makers: the thrill of the chaste
so much as hold hands, yet the mutual attraction is palpable.
It is no secret that in recent decades films have placed significant emphasis on sexuality, often showing it without filters, uncensored. To paraphrase Gustave Thibon, French philosopher and essayist, sexuality today seems to have lost its centre, now resembling an “ex-centric" circle, with rays that go everywhere but arrive at nothing. It has lost its meaning, and therefore its value. It is used as a bargaining chip, as an unbinding emotional gesture, as persuasive leverage to sell luxury and all that goes with it ... It is found everywhere, and film does little more than magnify this problem of “ex-centricity”.
