I think my favorite like love slash sex scene
00:09
is the scene in Out of Sight.
00:11
Not only because obviously you have Jennifer Lopez and
00:14
George Clooney and you know there's great writing
00:17
and great directing, but I think primarily because
00:19
the editor is making love with the story
00:22
at the same time as the actors are actually making love
00:27
in the scene, and so it was like a mergence of structure
00:33
and also the actual thing that's happening.
00:36
And it plays with time, because I think with love
00:39
or in love scenes or making love or whatever I think
00:41
moments become the history of the time you've had with
00:46
somebody is in those moments.
00:47
I really haven't seen many love scenes in film
00:51
capture that idea of past, present, and future
00:56
all in one moment in a love scene.
00:58
Man the movie that makes me cry like every time
01:01
is like, every time is like in Jerry Maguire
01:06
when he gets hit and he's on the ground
01:07
and then Jerry's on the sidelines and Jerry goes
01:10
Marcy, Marcy, it's okay Marcy.
01:13
And she's like Jerry, Jerry, is he okay?
01:17
He's like Marcy, I don't know, Marcy, calm down.
01:19
He's like Jerry, this family doesn't work without him.
01:23
Like that, and I'm just like forget about it.
01:24
That's, and then like, and then when Cuba Gooding Jr.
01:27
comes out at the end and he's like
01:28
(breathing sharply)
01:30
like that, feels, every time.
01:32
I could turn it on, I don't even really see the movie,
01:34
I'm just like, I can't keep, I can't keep.
01:37
But when Regina can't, when she says like
01:39
You don't understand,
01:40
this family doesn't work without him.
01:42
I'm just like, I'm a mess, so there you go.
01:47
But it's partially also Tom Cruise who is just like
01:50
Marcy, Marcy, you know?
01:52
His like hand, like, I'm actually wearing the right jacket.
01:56
'Cause he's like, you know it's like, yah.
02:00
Okay.
