HOLLYWOOD MORALITY: CASSAVETES ON INCEST - 'LOVE WHO YOU WANT'
breitbart.com ^ | 09/10/2012 | n/a

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 character’s 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. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want? If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

How subhuman.

To: P-Marlowe You are pretending to be stupid. You know very well that she did the right thing by not killing her own baby. She gets no special credit for not being a murderer. What makes her a skank, is that she is now a sex worker on world wide TV, with her skanky mother and father leading the way as her little sister looks on. That is one skanky family with very porn-desensitized fans, as seen on this thread. 92 posted on June 19, 2012 6:16:11 PM EDT by donna

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”.

Sex Worker is a broad term that includes anyone working to bring sexual gratification to others through the use of their bodies. It includes prostitutes (whether streetwalkers, escort workers, trafficked children, or what have you), strippers, porn actors, webcam performers, masseuses who give happy endings, nude models or maids etc...

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.

PEDOPHILIA IS NEXT: What Hollywood is creeping up on is to finally be able to proudly come out of the closet with its biggest secret sin: easy pedophilia among the producers, directors, and actors who can hold out the promise of success to depraved famewhore parents if only they'll submit their kids to sex slavery. Ever wonder why so many child actors are so screwed up? Did you think those parents who allowed their kids near Michael Jackson didn't know his background? And worse yet, do you imagine there aren't more such parents moving their kids here to the City of Lost Angels?
