I think my favorite like love slash sex scene
is the scene in Out of Sight.
Not only because obviously you have Jennifer Lopez and
George Clooney and you know there's great writing
and great directing, but I think primarily because
the editor is making love with the story
at the same time as the actors are actually making love
in the scene, and so it was like a mergence of structure
and also the actual thing that's happening.
And it plays with time, because I think with love
or in love scenes or making love or whatever I think
moments become the history of the time you've had with
somebody is in those moments.
I really haven't seen many love scenes in film
capture that idea of past, present, and future
all in one moment in a love scene.
Man the movie that makes me cry like every time
is like, every time is like in Jerry Maguire
when he gets hit and he's on the ground
and then Jerry's on the sidelines and Jerry goes
Marcy, Marcy, it's okay Marcy.
And she's like Jerry, Jerry, is he okay?
He's like Marcy, I don't know, Marcy, calm down.
He's like Jerry, this family doesn't work without him.
Like that, and I'm just like forget about it.
That's, and then like, and then when Cuba Gooding Jr.
comes out at the end and he's like
like that, feels, every time.
I could turn it on, I don't even really see the movie,
I'm just like, I can't keep, I can't keep.
But when Regina can't, when she says like
You don't understand,
this family doesn't work without him.
I'm just like, I'm a mess, so there you go.
But it's partially also Tom Cruise who is just like
Marcy, Marcy, you know?
His like hand, like, I'm actually wearing the right jacket.
'Cause he's like, you know it's like, yah.
