Posted on 09/10/2012 1:47:14 PM PDT by massmike
Writer-director Nick Cassavetes unveiled his new movie Yellow at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend and found himself defending the main characters incestuous love affair with her own brother....
I have no experience with incest, he told TheWrap in an interview on Sunday. We started thinking about that. We had heard a few stories where brothers and sisters were completely, absolutely in love with one another. You know what? This whole movie is about judgment, and lack of it, and doing what you want.
Love who you want. Isnt that what we say? Gay marriage love who you want? If its your brother or sister its super-weird, but if you look at it, youre not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because youre in love with one another.

Already going on to the next thing. Why am I not surprised?
This is Obama’s base, these people are SICK absolutely SICK
Is Angelina Jolie in this movie?
Methinks he's divorced for a reason.
You know that incest with your own kids is next
HOLLYWOOD MORALITY = American Culture
Even here at FR.
I’ve been called names by “conservative” Freepers for objecting to Bristol Palin’s Dancing With the Stars sex dance.
Welcome to your world.
“Love who you want. Isnt that what we say?”
Uhhhhhhhh...no. that’s not what we say. That’s what YOU say in your little never-never-land bubble.
“Ive been called names by conservative Freepers for objecting to Bristol Palins Dancing With the Stars sex dance.”
Can’t be sure of it, but I might have been one of them...I’m a Conservative, not a Puritan. Sound familiar?
Oh Geez...Lassie, DON’T come home.
Yuck! I’m reminded of a horrid film by Bernardo Bertolucci (the guy who directed The Last Emperor and, more infamously, Last Tango in Paris) from the late 70’s called La Luna. Jill Clayburgh initiates a “romantic” relationship with her 15 year old son in order to somehow help with his drug addiction or some nonsense. Bleah!
Looks like the Zoolander brothers.
Right. Gay Marriage = Love who you want. So why stop there? This is what Brian Brown asked Dan Savage in their gay marriage debate, and Savage had no answer. It was inevitable that incest would follow, logically.
This thread is your reward for your name calling labors.
Are you enjoying your new American culture?
Like "gay marriage."
That’s what “progressive” means. Always moving to the next stage. More, more, more. Never fall for “it’s just this little bit”.
The Palin girl's dance is responsible for an incest movie?
That's an awesome leap! I think it really started when women started letting men see their ankles in public.
Hey, you’ve got your wish - no standards whatsoever.
How do you like the new American culture?
I believe he is 100% correct.
“Are you enjoying your new American culture?”
Are you enjoying comparing oranges to road apples?
The more things change the more it smells like Sodom and Gomorrah - kind of a pungent, sweaty, fecal smell.
Jeez, when can I marry that UNICORN?? I won't be hurting anyone!!/s
I guess the right for you to marry animals will be right after you get to marry minors.
Will that be a plank in the DEMS 2016 platform??
In no way, under any interpretation, did I at any time call for "no standards whatsoever." You absolutely lied when you called it my "wish."
How do you like the new American culture?
It's horrible. Too many shameless liars.
“All I asked was if you like the new American culture as discussed in this article. Can’t answer?”
Telling you you were comparing oranges to road apples not clear enough for you? And how come you didn’t answer!!!!
“It’s horrible. Too many shameless liars. “
Heh heh ... C’mon Bristol caused this collapse...admit it. Ol Donna here is a REAL conservative among us heathen impostors.
Didn't you call Bristol a "sex worker" and she and her family "skanks"?
Incest happens [but not much.] Pretty stupid to have kids when it does, but I couldn't be bothered to worry about it. Sorry to see one of Breitbart's sites even post this tripe.
Oh. Full disclosure: I've never engaged in it. Yuck.
I have gotten a threatening PM from one of the Naughty Teacher crowd.
They all think with their libido, and they are so far gone in their sexual perversion that they are incapable of seeing any moral limits to sexual conquest.
Earlier, leftists were pushing the sexual oreintation of man/boy love and how persecuted pedos are.
I’m beginning to think Hollyweird movie makers are absolutely the last people anyone should ask concerning matters of morality. Incest? What next? Bestiality? The example of Roman Polanski, who was excused by the entertainment and arts community for assaulting a young teenage girl because he was an “artist,” proves these people are bottom of the barrel as far as values.

Of course this would happen. When sex is kept within the boundaries of marriage, then society can function. Once illicit sex is not only tolerated, but "celebrated", one boundary after another is breached. First pre-marital sex was winked at, then adultery, and of course EZ divorce, then any consenting adults/swinging/orgies, and of course homosexual acts. All are okay now and any of us who say different are "Taliban/hung up/closet pervs/religious nuts" etc. Now the text barriers to fall are of course "intergenerational sex" iow pedophilia and incest. What's next, you may ask? Well, necrophilia and cannibalism. Any maybe "making" your partner dead. The question we should all be asking ourselves is what we can do to not just stop the descent into utter depravity and social collapse, but how to turn it around.
Yeah, those nice ads with two Dads and their "son" are really nice ads for two queers having their own adopted sex toy.
This is an interesting thread. So many people already condemning those who condemn rampant sexual immorality. I forgot to add “Puritan” to my list of perjoratives I and others have been called. Tsk tsk.
And, btw BfloGuy, your argument that promotion of incest harmless as you don’t “engage” in it, and others are crazy to worry about it, that’s the same as the pro-abort argument “if you don’t like abortion don’t have one”.
“If you don’t like incest, don’t screw your brother” etc.
Am I right in thinking that a "sex worker" is a prostitute? In what way does this help our cause?
Incest perhaps is indeed rare and might remain so, but “love (=have sex with) whoever you want” advice affects nearly everyone.
We have 50% divorce rate across the board; children in some neighborhoods are over 75% illegitimate and fill the ranks of permanent criminal underclass living off the taxpayer dollar because of that “love whoever you want” mentality.
Sexual immorality is a tax on all Americans. Hollywood perverts with money to make movies are just like mold in a wet place, a consequence.
Everyone should care.
Yes, a “sex worker” is a prostitute; maybe that could include strip dancers and the like who are often “real” prostitutes too. Just because Bristol (apparently, I don’t have a TV) performed a suggestive dance on TV does not equate to her being a “sex worker” and I do not understand, donna, why you call the Palin family “skanky”, which I understand to mean “trollop” or “whore”.
Hollyweird and their ilk are a result and a cause, both.
You get the picture.
Sex worker is to prostitute as vehicle is to automobile: a larger inclusive set.
Well, yes. But we expect the decadent “artists” to push for dropped sexual restraint, just like we expect the bank robbers to rob banks. The blame falls primarily on the political leftwing who are supposed to advocate for the disadvantaged, not to create another client class for themselves. Yet that is exactly what they did, cynically, in full knowledge that a disintegration of the American family would ensue.
Interesting about artists. In some cultures and times, artists were not depraved decadent lowlifes. And coincidentally often created beautiful, inspiring and uplifting works.
Exact opposite now. Hmm, there is another factor. There are artists of all kinds who are not decadant and depraved but they are not supported, funded, employed and otherwise promoted by “TPTB/big money”. That’s another interesting phenomena.
Definitely. The political left is double guilty: by deliberately creating a legislative environment in which adultery, child bearing out of wedlock, and perversion come at no cost to the delinquent party, and by sponsoring art that no sane individual sponsor would come near.
There has always been tawdry second-tier art but the American Left engineered a corrupt system which turned our very reasoning about art upside down. Why? Lenin said “Of all the arts, cinema is the most important for us”. Decadent studio art of the 50s and 60s did not have a direct social impact, but it paved the way to the inverted system of values, by the 70s already established in the visual arts, to penetrate the mass art of cinema. Now a generation of moviemakers has been raised in Hollywood that are simply unaware of the value system of serious cinematographists even on recent memory. To them, “have sex with whoever you want” is simply a moral ABC.
How do you like the new American culture as discussed in the article?
Give it a little time, and everyone will embrace the latest Hollywood step “forward” in the new American culture as discussed in the article.
I’d guess that many on this thread, who are afraid to say so, already do.
People on this thread are making themselves pretty clear. I think you are making some false accusations.
Soooo, you approve of “love who you want”?
Can’t answer? Why not?
Polygamy? Pedophilia? Incest? Which perversion will become a “legally protected minority” next?
