It told about the relationship between two Windy City twenty-somethings in a singles-crazed world, who met at Mother's bar in Chicago's Gold Coast: Debbie up and coming star Demi Moore - pre-implants , a 24 year-old ad agency art director, sensual and with a deep voice Danny Rob Lowe , grocery wholesaler Two of Hollywood's 'Brat Pack' - Demi Moore and Rob Lowe The two entered into a torrid relationship that began with a passionate one-night stand and they also made love seated in a bathtub as the shower water drenched them from above , and then struggled to work out things realistically and to deal with commitment in their first year including the inevitable breakup and reconciliation.
Both males often confided with their best friends, Danny with loud-mouthed boaster Bernie James Belushi , and Debbie with embittered and shrewish Joan Elizabeth Perkins. It was not to be confused with Amazons , Argentina , a fantasy adventure film directed by Alejandro Sessa. Jesus Franco aka Jess Frank was the source for both the original short story and screenplay.
This was a follow-up film to Franco's Diamonds of Kilimandjaro , Sp. Strangely, the film was set in Africa, not in the Amazon, and all of the Amazonians were Nordic white women! Her father, a greedy and racist missionary named Mr. She learned about the tale of her parents' death from a diary read to her Liana was illiterate by a family friend, Father Johnstone Olivier Mathot.
Although Simpson had been warned to depart by a topless warrior woman and leave behind the stolen gold, he refused.
Then, the group of horseback-riding female Amazonians the ones in the opening , led by a priest-king known as The Great Uruck William Berger , returned with poison-tipped arrows. During their trek, Bella went skinny-dipping and afterwards spotted a cave where gold treasure was located - and she was taken captive by the Amazonians. Soon after, the rest of the group was also captured and held in the same cell. An epic struggle, duel or catfight was set to occur between Rena and Liana in the film's conclusion, over who would take over Uruck's harem.
The contest was to see who could draw "first blood. Rena After vanquishing Rena by scratching her face and drawing blood, Liana was led away by Uruck to his chamber. As he slept, she remembered the murder of her parents. She unleashed a long knife - shown next to a huge close-up of her right breast - she raised it and stabbed Uruck to death.
However, Rena was close behind - she shot a poison-tipped arrow at Liana, and the jungle girl was bound up with the others. Rena declared to them: Meanwhile, Rocky rescued the others, but they were too late to save Harvey and Bella. They witnessed their deaths on the spikes. Koukou threw some powdery explosive at Rena and killed her. In the undramatic ending, Liana released other enslaved mine workers and led everyone out of the temple cave.
She threatened the remainder of Rena's honor guard of female warriors, warning them to leave by nightfall.
And Koukou began bragging and shouting: Dangerfield headlined as Thornton Melon - a leering millionaire tycoon who improbably attended college with his son in order to carouse and romance the ladies - brought there by limousine. Nudity was exhibited by Leslie Scarborough aka Leslie Huntly as a startled sorority Co-ed 1 in the shower.
When her nudity was revealed behind the shower curtain, Thornton stated: Its title was the morning temperature There was a longer running time minutes for the original Director's Cut release compared to the North American release length minutes.
The emotional French sex drama, nominated for Best Foreign Language film, was noted for its opening - an ardent, extended thrusting love-making scene set in a beachside shack - filmed with a two-minute slow-zoom toward a couple who were lying sideways on a bed beneath a portrait of the Mona Lisa: We made love every night.
The forecast was for storms. How do I look? What do you think? Do I please you? She called all men "bastards" and pushed him away. She was planning to move in with him: No wonder a girl ends up splitting Why don't you ever listen to me? I expect more from a guy than sex. To think I spent a year in that dump wiping tables and dodging drunks just to get felt up one morning by the boss! I've got to start all over again now. Anyway, I was fired. Can't even buy a train ticket. He brought her things in from the door and put them on the bed, causing her to smile.
Not many girls could dress as casually as she did. Their love after many sequences of uninhibited and explicit sexual activity - and full frontal nudity for both sexes, especially in the longer version was eventually destroyed by their instability, possessiveness and literal amour fou - leading to the hospitalized, insane, self-wounded, and broken-down heroine's euthanasia by pillow smothering.
Hiding in her apartment's closet, clean-cut, innocent, small-town college student Jeffrey Beaumont Kyle MacLachlan voyeuristically watched nightclub singer Dorothy Valens Isabella Rossellini as she disrobed to a black bra, black panties, and red high-heeled shoes.
She stripped naked in the rear bathroom, and then reached for her blue velvet robe from the closet. He heard a drawer open in the kitchen as she reached for a large knife, and then suddenly flung open the closet door where he was caught hiding. She threatened him at knife-point into intimidation and forced him to get on his knees. She cut his face with the knife blade, turned the tables on him, made him her voyeuristic prey, and forced him to undress in front of her, all the way down to his underwear and socks.
Jeffrey's First Confrontation with Dorothy Isabella Rossellini She pulled down his underpants to his knees, then began touching, fondling, and kissing and fellating? Do you like talk like that? Three loud knocks at the door frightened Dorothy. Frantically fearing the man's arrival and with the knife gleaming above Jeffrey, she told him to head back into the closet. Jeffrey watched in horror, hiding behind a wardrobe closet door, as Dorothy was terrorized by her visitor - evil, psychotic, blackmailing, perverse and depraved villainous kidnapper Frank Booth Dennis Hopper.
The scene was disturbing, cruel, sadomasochistic, and kinky. The 'dark' scene was intercut with a frightened Jeffrey surreptitiously viewing the shadowy, broken images between the slats of the distasteful ordeal from his hiding place in the closet: Show it to me. She slowly opened her legs wider and adjusted her robe, while Frank stared at her crotch and drank his bourbon.
Don't you f--kin' look at me! He repeatedly demanded that she look away from him - denying her the sight of his 'dark' nature. While he placed the mask over his mouth and nose, he snorted and inhaled helium or nitrous oxide? He debased her as a prostitute, mother figure, and copulatory partner in the natural world: He moved toward her, kneeling in front of her. Baby wants to f--k. Get ready to f--k. He slugged her in the face. After another gasp of gas, Frank begged and whined menacingly: As he began to feel her breasts, he sucked, chewed, and bit the velvet cloth.
Then he seized her and threw her down to the floor, spewing vulgar words. Frank removed a pair of scissors, menacingly snipping with them in mid-air above her face and body: Don't f--kin' look at me. Don't you look at me. He stuffed the end of her blue robe belt into her mouth and the other end into his own mouth. Don't you f--kin' look at me. And then after forcefully touching her genitals, he mounted her and started humping her with his unbuckled pants still on.
He moved frenziedly faster and faster until climaxing in a brief and brutal f--k. After getting off of her, he slugged her again in the face, hideously threatening her again: Do it for Van Gogh. Subsequently, Jeffrey took Dorothy into his arms. She opened her robe to reveal her left breast, tempting him. You can feel it. You can touch it. Hit me," but Jeffrey refused and told her to "stop it," even though she kept pleading: In close-up, their naked bodies made love on the blue-silky sheets of her bed.
Again, she demanded to be hit. Jeffrey while rescuing Dorothy! He overcame his resistance to abusing her after she begged him to please her - her moist red lips appeared, with sparkling white teeth. Again, he hit her - as the flames grew and the animalistic howling sound intensified during their violent, erotic love-making in the darkness. One of the often criticized scenes of gratuitous nudity was the later scene in which a naked and battered Dorothy shockingly appeared on the Beaumont's front lawn.
Film critic Roger Ebert Ebert criticized how she was misogynistically depicted in the film: And when you ask an actress to endure those experiences, you should keep your side of the bargain by putting her in an important film. Michelangelo Merisa da Caravaggio Nigel Terry , a 17th century, church-funded, iconoclastic, homosexual Renaissance-Baroque artist-painter, with Vatican connections, who painted blasphemous works of art Ranuccio Thomasoni Sean Bean , a streetfighter, hired to be hunky model and muse for Caravaggio; bi-sexual, with whom Caravaggio was lustfully obsessed Lena Tilda Swinton in her debut film role , Ranuccio's androgynous lover Lena also served as Caravaggio's Mary Magdalene model.
Although the film had little explicit sexuality, the most striking scene involved Ranuccio kissing Caravaggio in order to claim his gold coin payments for having posed. When Lena was found murdered by drowning, suspect Ranuccio was arrested.
