And that's my problem with this film essentially. If there's someone rewatching this film again and again, how do we not know that they aren't a sick fuck? I don't give a damn about the film otherwise but having things that sick fucks can focus on is the problem essentially. The rest of us don't really care. I certainly don't. I don't even think the film makers completely understand my faith judging from what you said but I'd have to watch the movie to actually know whether they do or not but I won't and cannot because of this useless nonsense. Why even have it in the film at all. Does it enhance the film's message in any meaningful way at all? Does it help us understand something deeper? My problem is the sick fucks who will focus only on the dancing and the obscene shots.
I think you mistook the point I was trying to make: (You may not agree with it, and I understand)
People who are overly concerned with this films sexual tones are the ones that need help. Why? It simple; in a conversation, have you seen someone take a comment to be sexual when it wasn't implied to be? Well it shows where their mind is. Apply this logic to all these overly touchy people that skip the message of the film and are screaming at what is going on in their minds (what they see), not what the point of the film was about. Can a film be crude? Yes, but when applied effectively, it can be a useful method to shine a light on a topic the audience may be ignorant of. The shock value was not excessive, it was made in a way to make you think, not to give anyone a hard-on. Only perverted minds would see it that way, because that is all they focused on.
"Monkey see, Monkey do." It's what I perceived when I saw the young kids dancing; It's just a basic animal behavior, which we human ARE. That's all it is, little ones emulating the world the adults demonstrate. So why are we so touchy about it? Hypocrisy. We have plenty of that here in the States.
I think DraconianAC forgets to mention essentially the hole second part of the film. The film is not just a criticism of the autocratic and restrictive culture of Amy's family.
the film essentially tells the story of a girl that tries to flee from the oppressive and autocratic World of here family but then she realises that the new world she found (pop culture, idols, etc.) is in a different way also very oppressive.
The film uses the dancing and other things to show you how the mechanisms of oppression and conformity funktion in our supposedly free society.
Yes, I agree I didn't mention the hole plot. It just wasn't my MO. I just tried to pick one event that was well executed. I do apologize; however, I don't agree she was fleeing "the oppressive and autocratic world;" It felt more like she was disappointed in her life; there were certain events that propelled her to seek an escape from the stress she was under.
In fact, I don't agree with the film at the end; they give the main character enough maturity to reflect on her actions when in most of the film she never doubted the path down the rabbit hole. So, I don't like happy endings when they don't merit it, but to each his own.
-Edit: I forgot to add something.
