Violence and sex in European films.


I would like to comment on the vital and simultaneously fragile issue of the incorporation of violence and sex in European films. Obviously we have many times experienced films which include a plethora of taboo images as well as spectacles of sex and violence. These spectacles undeniably excite viewers in ways that they would deny in their regular “polite” society. Unlike real-life violence, bloodshed and killing on screen give many viewers intense aesthetic pleasure. Therefore, cinema as a powerful medium is capable of arousing and stimulating an audience’s unconscious desires and fantasies through the conveyance of such aggressive spectacles, something which is fostered by the fact that a normative society restricts outward manifestations of sexual or brutal behavior. In a world that is saturated with violent and aggressive messages, we cannot take for granted that all viewers are aware of the boundaries between real-life and imagination or they have high levels of critical ability; intense movie violence can help to stimulate an individuals’ impulses in a way that he or she acts on them, hence, the image projected on the screen can reinforce the illogical dispositions of some viewers. Moreover, I would say that European cinema frequently borrows images, characters and occasionally story situations from the American one which is essentially typical of the popular culture. Inevitably, Hollywood exerts its influences on a global level both economically and stylistically and we should never forget that generally blood, killings, brutality and cruelty stimulate attention as well as curiosity and ultimately increase profitability, because they are tabooed and “deviant” characteristics and modes of conduct of our society.

Farmer Liz, when I started using the dryer balls, I wondered if my daughter would comment about the lack of smell, but it went unnoticed. One of these days I'll try soap nuts too and avoid a few more chemicals. It's on my to-do list. body armor for sale
