As a group, it seems to me we are pretty much in search of an explicit and extreme product with nudity, torture, and sexual violence.(Of course, this is coming from a movie watcher who gets completely annoyed at movies about strippers starring actresses with no-nudity contract clauses.I'm also not sure I understand the suits' concerns.These obviously aren't the guys who produced the Hostel movies, The Girl Next Door, or any of the so-called torture porn flicks.So come to think of it, I really give a fuck about the "psychological aspects" of being a stripper. But I digress.) Big money will probably never fund anything but mainstream pablum.That is not to say you couldn't push their boundaries and maybe get away with more than they would have initially allowed.It doesn't seem to me that anyone on this board actually cares about the psychological aspects of taking thinly veiled shots at Jessica Alba.
The number of American TV shows and Made-for-TV movies dealing with strippers and prostitutes are too numerous to mention. But Jessica Alba does seem to go for an inordinate number of roles that should involve nudity but sadly do not. If they made the drive-in circuit, it was after I stopped going. He might be good at graphic torture porn, but nudity and sexual violence don't seem to be his forte. Just so you know, we are going to have some gruesome parts in the Agent, near the end. We are incorporating more elements this time that we usually don't have in our movies such as strangulation, electro-torture, etc.
Deconstructing the Stockholm Syndrome--even in the nude--might be someone's idea of a stimulating pastime, but not mine.
From a film-making point of view, it is always problematic portraying what is going on inside characters' heads without a surfeit of tedious exposition or long thoughtful silences with meaningful expressions. Maybe you'll manage to get in one good, brief scene that will end up on forum members' highlight compilations.
Some people love Red Feline on the Cross, some people hate it, and others have more of a median response. Mainly because we were able to make an investment in professional lights. In rereading what I wrote I can see it may have been overly critical. Its rare to find a site in which the actresses really put it out there like you do. A Canadian and Yik Yakker: Jessica Biel, Marisa Tomei, Daryl Hannah, Jennifer Tilly, Elizabeth Berkley, Sandra Oh, Gina Gershon and Demi Moore (by all means not an all-inclusive list) all get my Seal of Approval for managing to perform the singular identifying characteristic of a stripper, while playing a stripper. *sigh* They just don't make movies like that any more.

I wonder if you've had the chance to see Dancing at the Blue Iguana, which displayed both the psychological and physical aspects (titties) of stripping. Like John Galt, I first discovered them on DVD -- not that many years ago, in my case. Dancing at the Blue Iguana was a great flick, insofar as getting name actresses to show skin. I think, right offhand, that the bondage sex scene where a tied-up Ginger is fucked is the longest, best-filmed, best-lit, most-satisfying bondage rape scene I have ever seen in a mainstream movie. ----- Jane von Detlefson: I had already decided to wait for the VOD/download option for RF flicks.
