“All you need for a movie is a girl and a gun.”—-
I can’t believe people are still taking that quotation seriously.
Obviously the only people who take that quote seriously are the ones who rail against it. It’s a polemical statement who’s sole purpose is to praise the B genre film. It also demonstrates that the history of cinema is the history of men filming women. You might want to trade in film history profs or switch film schools for all the insight those heated lectures are providing you.
However, cinema is one of the places where conventional and closed views of reality (like the binary perspective of human beings as men/women or male/female) could be challenged as all the queer cinema proves (and I’m not talking about sexual orientation only but all kind of social, political and cultural transgressions).
That’s fine. Let’s discuss Araki then instead of focusing on the window dressing of Oscar sexual politics.

C’mon now, that’s absurdly reductive. It would make a great t-shirt, though.
