la vie erotique
there may not have been major sex in 'blow-up' but then again, the year was 1966 and cinema was yet to drop the veil completely. i am of the school of thought shared by director neil jordan. in the commentary to his film, 'breakfast on pluto' he came to the scene where 'kitten' and 'billy' close the door behind them on the small trailer parked by the lake in the middle of nowhere. jordan said there was no need to show what was gonna happen because the viewer knew what was gonna happen.
the sexual flavor of 'blow-up' had less to do with the act than with the hands down sexy as all get out performance of david hemmings.
