I am probably at my most communicative when I deal with surprises and the unknown.
This is why I can only have geniuses and mad persons as friends. In love this gets violent.

That's another thing very badly done in film.
Is there even a single good sex scene that is not pornographic?

Some exceptions. I've seen one, I must assume there are more. But in general I flinch and think I hope to god this is not how they do it in real life; The directors want to hide but don't know what; they do not yet know how to put together a scene in the way a woman dresses. (except maybe John Woo)
Sex is still too dangerous for visual storytelling - it is still presented in a bearskin.

The weird thing is I don't even remember the movie. I think the movie was probably forgettable, despite having a good sexual scene. I remember wanting to write it down.

The spirit that is usually missing from the usual scene - although I am realizing now that this too might be an aspect that is improving - is the opposite of the 'meant to be' spirit. Any interesting and human sex, when it is a new bond (that would be in a movie) has a lot of confusion and blindness to it; because it is in sex that we set out to discover what we are usually to afraid to encounter; our own unconditioned drives; good sex is a de-conditioning, a release of the drives, and there is a lot of very cool and surprising, often shocking psychology that is released with that.

The 'profound' movie love-making with the oh my god I am fainting this is heaven' face is really obscene. You can see, in that transfixed gaze, the puritanical panic trying to push out every real thing that comes up. Either that or it's already an over the top werewolf-frenzy from the get-go.

You can't blame them, as whatever passion they can muster for their co-actor, it is bizarre to release all this before a filmcrew; still, I'd prefer it if the scenes were omitted in absence of convincing enactment. It's too important to the characters and the story to screw up.

I find it hard to watch that movie now. At the time, Corey Haim, the blonde boy in that movie, was regularly raped from as early age of 11 by people who were involved in HollyWood, he was often raped on set behind the scenes, and most likely during the making of Lost Boys, it's probably what fueled is addiction to drugs, his relapsing then his death.

There are innumerable seeds in the earth, innumerably many more than the reckoning of either living or dead trees- the sound of the seeds growing is deafening, and drowns out the sound of all the falling oceans of wood in the forests- but, perhaps, the sound made by the seeds can only be heard with our thoughts. - Parodites, 3rd Pentad
