Hands down is "Don't Look Now." That's very sexy.
00:11
And because it's such a scary film,
00:14
and the sex scene is so extended and so glorious,
00:17
that it's, you feel like you're watching
00:19
something that you shouldn't.
00:21
That's very exciting, but for just sheer feeling of lust
00:26
and romance that you can't quite ever reach,
00:31
which is sorta the epitome of what I think
00:34
romantic love in films is,
00:38
in David Lean's movie, "Brief Encounter,"
00:41
and he's a doctor, and he's telling her
00:44
that what he's really interested in is studying
00:47
this certain kind of disease or something,
00:49
I forget exactly what it was,
00:50
but he's kinda going off on this tangent
00:54
about medicine and she's looking at him,
00:58
and she's got these big eyes, but she doesn't have a face
01:01
that immediately strikes you as beautiful.
01:04
One of the best things about the movie is that,
01:05
as the movie goes on, you really find her beauty.
01:09
She's watching him and he's telling her this,
01:12
and she just says, without even thinking about it,
01:14
she says, "Oh, just now you looked like a little boy."
01:19
And he kinda, he says oh.
01:21
And then they both know, in that moment,
01:24
and she didn't even mean to say this,
01:26
and he doesn't know what to
01:28
and all of a sudden, it's over,
01:30
and they just both know it.
01:33
And it's like this horrible but beautiful moment of
01:36
they really saw each other
01:39
and it's sexy and innocent at the same time
01:43
because it's so unintentional
01:45
and by the time she says it, it's too late.
01:48
They're already in love.
