If you ask someone what is in the cinema these days, “Fifty shades of grey” is the main answer. This movie rise the dust, and reactions are various, from thrilled women who wish to scream for amazing Mr. Grey until preachers who wish to crucify author of the book. Some of them go so far that they compare this movie with act of devil.
What is really so special in this movie and why reactions are negative? I remember when women cried on “Titanic” and “Bodyguard”. It was time when Leonardo di Caprio was symbol of dream guy who will give his life for love and Kevin Kostner was main hero who will save you from bad guys. Personally, i was not attached with this kind of movies because it was too sugary for me. I prefer movie “Basic instinct. ” Just, romantic stories were significant for that time and fragile woman as Whitney Houston was symbol of femininity. Kate Winslet was romantic sweetheart and nobody noticed her handsome fiance Jack because all eyes were on Leonardo.
Perception of love changed. Woman is not fragile creature who waits for a hero, she wants dangerous stranger and vicious games.
But why some religious people spit on that movie and why romantic souls are disappointed?
It was not typical love story. Anastasia is young virgin who falls on charming stranger Christian. But he will not save her from bad guys, he is kind of bad guy.
Christian is abuser, not sweet guy from neighborhood. He use whip and sex toys and his playroom is place for sexual deviations.
They are not couple who will marry and have kids, as in romantic novels. They cross limits together and she is free to go when she can’t handle situation.
They don’t use words i love you and forever.
Some people will act like moral policy and judge that movie, as it breaks traditional values. Some are terrified because Christian beats Anastasia, but let’s look at other side. First, Anastasia accepted this and she runaways when she realized that is not what she wanted. Also, even she looks like innocent girl , she is horny and her desires are deep. She did not choose sweet guy Jose, who was her friend from college. Her choice is Christian, rich man and she is fascinated by his power and success. She doesn’t act as innocent victim, more she is curious girl who will yell as Red Riding hood when wolf is coming.
Why to be shocked nowadays with movie about masochism?
Don’t mix it with violence. Yellow is word for warning, red means stop – that are symbols of game between two masochists. If young people can make love in front of cameras in Big Brother, why to be surprised with such movie on Valentine’s day?
Morality is rainbow with more colors and shades. If you see things as black, it doesn’t mean that your sight is real and right.
