In London, England, love blooms between an American college student, named Lisa, and a British glaciologist, named Matt, where over the next few months in between attending rock concerts, the two lovers have intense sexual encounters.
Achieving notoriety for its graphic full-frontal nudity, and explicit—unsimulated!—sex scenes, 9 Songs is structured around the energy of alt-rock but is more than an extended music video. Like Winterbottom’s Wonderland and 24 Hour Party People, it’s a daring film on the passions of youth.
Never seemed to identify with the harsh criticism I read about this movie. Is this a case of what Zizek has identified? We can deal with movies about/with romantic love. We can deal with movies about/with sex (porn). But we cannot deal with movies that have both. It seems obscene, disturbing. Why? Why would porn have the exclusive when it comes to sex? Usually porn does a terrible job.- watched it again after review*
the characters could have been a little more interesting. I don't mind "real sex" in a mainstream film, but there has to be more substance than a decent soundtrack and lots of fucking for it not to be considered pornography. Give me interesting characters and a good plot and I could care less if it was simulated or un-simulated sex.
Não basta só ter culhão (e mostrar culhões) pra se fazer um filme experimental. Alguém explica isso pra esses diretorezinhos fajutos, faz favor! Dizer que sexo é arte eu até concordo, mas validar a realização desse filme? Não. O filme é a síntese da mediocridade de quem acha que qualquer lixo pode ser chamado de cinema experimental.
