Voyeurism

27 Sep

              I was watching this movie a few weeks ago when I remembered how provocative some scenes were.  I quickly thought of the pool scene where Denise Richards comes out of the pool and everything goes slow motion.  At first she slowly climbs the pool ladder out of the pool and keeps flicking her hair back, making a huge emphasis on her breasts.  She also happens to be wet which adds another factor voyeurism to the clip.  After climbing out of the pool, the camera is still in slow motion and it begins to scan her whole body.  It begins from her waist and continues down to her feet where it actually starts the full body scan from her legs up.  She also picks up the towel on the ground but clearly fails to use it to cover herself in any way.  Instead, the towel is just a tool used as a reason for her to pick something up and bend over.  It also allows the camera to scan her whole body from head to toe which in this case is the opposite, toe to head.   She then neatly dabs the towel on her arms and remains mostly drenched.  Lastly, her swimsuit is sort of transparent which arrouses the audience even further.  The scene ends when Kevin Bacon starts talking to her and she turns around.  I felt that this was an industry standard in describing what we were talking about in the last class and even so, there are many others that accomplish this task just as well.
