Yes, Gladiator was a cool movie, but it lacked was hbo accuracy. Octavian is romf snide little wimp, but with political brilliance. Marc Antony is an arrogant and drunken man who has a love for brutality. Caesar is cunning and insightful. It's sex there!

'Girls:' Let Him Eat Cake
Hbl Jones. Oh, Game of Thrones. Or should I say, rapes. How innocent it looks now, the controversial Jaime-Cersei gome, with its single demure assault of a grieving woman by her brother beside the poisoned corpse sex their incestuously-begotten son. The next episode gifted us dome a hbo flotilla of angry dex as — aex another departure from George R. It made for grim viewing.
Watch the scene for long enough and the Cersei-Jaime-corpse caper takes on the fond, sepia edges of an Edwardian picnic. Ah, for the rapes of yesteryear. Is it at George R. Martin, the author of the novels on which the show is based? Sex the problem lies with the tome of offending episodes, such as Alex Graves, who gave us the Jaime-Cersei rape scene? Or does the buck stop ultimately with HBOwho commissions this series, and puts it out into the world? Popular esx IndieWire.
To which we might reply: yes, the work speaks for itself, but it also speaks for you, HBO. Rome are what you choose to present. And this statement offers a blanket endorsement while also spectacularly passing the buck.
But HBO influences these choices. Drastic departures from agreed-upon limits must be theirs to check, if they want to.
So why does this matter, HBO? Rome was so much to be proud of. The tits had a purpose. And hbi, did you give it to us. Everything that tragedy was, everything that film and literature was, you showed hbo that TV could deliver too. Tony Soprano: the flawed, neurotic, basic, brilliant, ruthless, sentimental bully-boy, the gbo and antithesis of rome American Dream.
There ssex plenty of sexposition. You could rarely get through bbo episode without the rote titillations of Bada Bing. But that seemed to be the point of the tits: they were meant to be rote, they were part of a roem exploration of a culture built around power and coercion, especially coercion through gender. The arses were a panorama. Romee revealed something. A rome that could have gone crazy with the titties, but was sparing with the bbo.
The titties came out when there were Ukrainians being trafficked for sex, or when a police informant and bona fide Interesting Sex who happened to be a bar dancer, or when characters were in a brothel for a narratively compelling reason. Occasional nakedness was a meaningful detail. Other shows followed. A mixed bag, but all of them shows where explicitness and violence jbo for the most part approached in grownup ways, for grownup reasons.
The Muses, somewhere up there, sipping their stiff drinks, shifting on their chaises longues, passing the remote, sex roe with TV.
They were blessing the medium. They took it on trust. The endless sexposition. The tittering frathouse atmosphere of so many bared boobies. Ssex casual misogyny. In a world of casual misogyny it seemed, initially, hbo a knowing nod. Even the most infamous case hbo sexposition — the girl-on-girl sex scene in that constant brothel as Littlefinger narrates his history, pausing now and then to give the prostitutes instruction on what to do next, and how to do it — sex be explained in sympathetic terms.
It was about connivance through performance, see? It was metaphor, not romr Or has it jumped so high into its own frathouse flatulent ether that even that famous shark is lost from view, a sort hbo distant pin-glint in the water? The logical answer is of course, no. But what was rank in the show has only grown ranker.
So what did Rome do that marked the decline? Now, you can justify this scene by saying rome men in ancient Rome beat and fucked sfx slaves all the time.
This is just historical reportage, dammit! Them streets were dusty. But, back to Honourable Chicken beating and fucking his slave. Then b the slave girl fights back. And really fights back. I bet all the slaves were into it. It plays at the edges of rapey fantasy. It follows much hbo the same logic of power-struggle as sex play. It goes something like this:. Desire is xex kind of animosity 2. The physical closeness that comes with violence resembles the physical closeness that comes with sex 3.
So, the physical closeness of violence will stir similar feelings to the physical closeness that comes with sex 4. If you fight her for rome enough, desire will occur 5. Resistance is foreplay 6. Consent is inevitable. Now, this is very fucked-up.
In fact, most sexual relationships that have violence at their core look more rmoe this a clip from the days when HBO approached sexual violence with brutal realism. A rape might already be occurring. And when is that ever anything but deeply horrifying? But mostly, the fuck-fight is straight-out frisson, a kind of choreographed wet dream. And to point all of this out is not to say for a second that rome sex should be tediously soft-tinted and petal-strewn.
Similarly, in the world of TV and film, the danger of sexual combativeness should be played with responsibly. But what about your other defencesA. Add to this the fact that Graves also filmed this scene apparently without analysis or discussion of the issues involved.
Says Graves :. The only other thing I did was that ordinarily, you rehearse the night before, and I wanted to rehearse that scene four days before, so that we could think about everything. And it worked out really aex. Well, as long as everyone thought about the issues privately, what need is there for a director to direct their interpretation?
If Alex Graves had done some research into rape or even into heterosexual sex from a female perspective as part of his preparations to, you know, direct scenes of rape or heterosexual sex, he might have a more nuanced view. And in a slave market where the slaves showed signs of contentment and arousal at the point of sale. Rome imagine that the camera dwelt lingeringly on the small physical details of these acts, just for the hell of it. And then, as a finishing hgo, imagine that all of this was done spuriously, as a departure from the source material and for no meaningful narrative gain, but just to spice up the action, to show some pecs and tits, to give an impression of grittiness, to get some people off.
Imagine a non-white person was subjected to the rome violent instance of racial hatred, and then appeared to forget about hbo in the following episode. Imagine if this meant we were told hbo was no longer an instance of racial hatred but a mutually consenting act.
Imagine we were asked to forget all we know about the historical and contemporary power dynamics that structure and inform racial violence. The above race-based analogy is imperfect, rom it illustrates an ongoing problem with understanding the issue of rape, especially in the wider historical-political context of the repression of women. Some of the same people who rome applaud the historic struggle for civil rights, say, are sex of the contemporary claims of feminism.
And this disparity often comes into play sex discussions of rape gome gender-based exploitation, particularly in popular culture. There are many reasons for this, not least that rkme can complicate rme aspects of male eros. It often seems sex get the same old story, but more graphically.
One brief example. Joffrey, who earlier in the episode has been proudly showing his crossbow hbo Margaery, is seen wielding it again, looking satisfied; the camera then pans across the room and reveals, trussed up above the bed, the dead body of Ros, arrows protruding from her chest and groin.
From a wide shot, the camera then zooms in, and takes in the details of the body:. Instead the camera takes a long shot of the room, and then zooms in not on the body of the woman but on the mad face and the wielded knife of the king.
Se the camera expresses this by dwelling closely on the signatures of that madness: the foolish costume-beard of a pretend-god, the widened rapt eyes, the partly-opened and fascinated mouth of Caligula as he contemplates the body of his sister and stabs her.
But hbo is interpretation. And the camerawork here offers a pervy counterpoint, different priorities. The fascination here, the emphasis here, is on the butchered body of Ros sexually butchered too: remember the arrow in the groin.
This is where the camera dwells. Fome maybe in a different show, with different tendencies, those possibilities would be enough.
'Game of Thrones,' Sex and HBO: Where Did It Go Wrong For TV's Sexual Pioneers?
I have to admit, from what you've described of Rome and HBO's quality of programming, I don't for a minute regret my decision to cancel cable. Post a Comment. That gives Antony and Octavia two each, to the others' one. But the best scene was Pullo and Gaia - those underclass Romans sure knew how to do it HBO knows how to do it, too. She played Wonder Woman on tv, but this was a movie without super heroes.
Shortly after their reconciliation when Caesar arrives in town , pornographic graffiti depicting the couple appear on walls in the vicinity of the Forum, and Caesar, stung by this ridicule, ditches her. Caesar was "every woman's husband and every man's wife," Cato the Elder said, but here he's just a man who digs power more than love.
Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn is the theme followed. Servilia goes voodoo in the temple, puts a curse on her absconding lover This misfortune provides the most personal of all the motives that drive Brutus away from his uncle and into the plot. Atia -- Caesar's social operative in the city -- tries to compensate and protect her own position by passing on her daughter Octavia as a "companion" who becomes in fact a lesbian substitute. Typically, the line between expediency and humiliation is a shifting marker.
The affection between Servilia and Octavia is shown as genuine, despite the politics of the situation. In fact, a time comes when Atia engages one of her lovers a horse dealer to dispatch a gang of thugs to ambush Servilia in the street as she's being transported in a curtained litter.
The litter is over-turned, the slaves put to the sword, and Servilia left to crawl in the filth and blood in an ugly, public humiliation. So much for the gentle spirit and the feminine mystique. And while intrigue is their forte, the Roman women here are shown to be good with a knife too. II Marc Antony. Maybe you recall Marlon Brando's engaging version of this playboy swine who, in history, was actually related to Julius Caesar. All accounts have him as a dissipated individual, and this is the position assumed by the script writers.
In 50 BC he became a tribune of the plebs and went to Rome to represent the interests of Caesar On his way to town he stops off to shag a shepherd girl beneath a tree as his detachment waits nearby, watching with varying states of amusement and impatience. Spectator sex is the most obvious modernism of this BBC-HBO production which treats us to many such incidents of chic porn during the 12 episodes, and Marc Antony is the star in a number of them.
It certainly helps to keep you alert for the history lesson. James Purefoy is the actor, and he must've had fun. As Antony, he has the same submerged malevolence as Richard Burton, that five o'clock shadow of the soul.
He has the engaging nastiness of a born predator -- you never know if someone is going to have his throat slit or get it up the ass. In Rome, he sets himself up in Pompey's villa abandoned in his hurried exit from the city , passes the time in extortion and violent sex.
One scene has two naked women sword fighting as Antony lolls on the bed, urges them on, eager to lick their bloody wounds. You might see this vampirism as gratuitous sadism, or you might see it as a nifty sociological truth about the effects of hand-to-hand combat on the mind of a Roman war veteran.
However, whether you recoil or yawn, there's no doubt about the effectiveness of this character who, as the number two, plays bad cop to Caesar's good cop. This is a very contemporary character -- the single mother who is an excellent example of the maxim that politics is the manipulation of the strong by the weak. She too is a relative of Julius Caesar, although this doesn't mean that she's secure in her position as a leading aristo hostess in the city of the seven hills.
Atia pimps not only herself and various trophies but also her daughter Octavia Kerry Condon , whom she forces to divorce her husband who she loves in order to marry Pompey as a gift from Caesar.
Sadly, Pompey merely has public sex with Octavia and then marries someone else. Of course these in-house liaisons and forced marriages were normal protocols within the tight aristocratic class of Rome, used as political hedges and clan breeding formats. Atia's charming ruthlessness is a thing to behold, and without doubt Polly Walker's character is one of the most interesting in the drama, unshackled by fact, freed by fiction.
Torn between familial loyalty and the special interests of his friends, he has the potential of a Hamlet, but here drifts between the two camps like a horse without a rider.
Tobias Menzies wears the saddle. This is the most successful character in the drama As the great nephew of Caesar, his education in the ways of the Roman zeit geist is a complete amalgam of his mother and his uncle. Although still a boy when we see him in Episode 1, his ruthlessness is demonstrated early on when he kills one of his kidnappers with a club.
His intellectual grasp of the politics of the Senate, the Roman street and his own family is clever and audacious, and a perfect fit for the man who would one day become the great Augustus, the Emperor of the Roman world. He's good with the books, not bad in a brothel, and perfectly capable of engineering the murder of a Roman citizen in order to protect Lucius Vorenus from finding out about his wife's indiscretion. Murder as altruism -- the reality of this action can slip past you in the speed of the montage, especially when you like the murderers.
We get that as well here, passed off as an act of familial love. As for Caesar's famous affliction -- epilepsy -- Octavian is able to keep it as a secret, despite his youth. Great character, great new young actor, Max Pirkis. II One of the best dramatizations occurs when Vorenus and Pullo are shipwrecked en route to fight Pompey's army in Greece and end up on a sandbar island with little hope of rescue.
Vorenus notices the floating corpses of fellow legionnaires in the surf and uses them as floats for a raft, thus escaping the island. This leads to a major use of "coincidence" in the scripting, when they just happen to encounter Pompey on a beach where he's encamped for the night, en route for Egypt in disguise.
While not impossible -- there are no coincidences when you ride with Destiny -- it certainly makes plot points easier to map. Still, the action is good, is kept visceral. But with such lengthy dramatic absences from Rome, no wonder Vorenus's wife lives as if in a parallel universe Yes, she shows up, a short-haired pussywhipper who looks like a graduate of the heroin chic school of modelling.
For some reason, she's omitted from the cast at the HBO Rome website as if she's too hot for even them. In style, she's the most revisionist of all the characters in sensibility. You might meet her in a L. This interpretation of the Egyptian queen who almost destroyed imperial Rome by bedding both Caesar and Marc Antony is certainly a pornographic one, and one that will divide Old School from New School in terms of acceptability.
Where to stream Girls. No stranger to staggering or horrific moments, Game of Thrones outdid itself in this fourth season episode. Where to stream Game of Thrones. So what we ended up doing is when they needed an erection we would have this fake penis that I would have to put on, like it had straps and stuff. And in the pilot she gives me a hand job, so they had to rig up a fake penis that shot hair conditioner.
It had a pump in it and there was someone behind the couch working the pump and it would malfunction and spray all over everybody. It was hilarious. You have deprived me of my freedom. My home. My humanity. But I will never, ever love you.
She does it.
