you think that a Hollywood production of the sort that Last Temptation of Christ was had an innocent kiss on the mouth that wasn't intimating something else I've got a sea-side resort in Arizona to sell you
I wouldn't recommend LAST TEMPTATION to anyone, but I think you need to see the scene in its context before you say it was meant to convey anything sexual at all. The film is based on Kazantakis' book, and the book has a very Mediterranean flavor; emotions and affection are expressed differently in other cultures than they are in America. Here in the States, any affection between men at all is suspect. In other cultures, it's very natural.

I acknowledge your point, it could be that I am just skeptical of MOST things Hollywood. However, I'll save my benefit of the doubt for something more worthy than the film in question. But you are absolutely correct about your point contrasting the differences between our culture and others regarding how we show affection.
