Factory Girl (2006) (part 7 of 10)

Later that evening, Bob and Edie cuddle in front of an outdoor fire. She tells him about her tragic family history, and instead of his usual masturbatory grinning, he acts all sensitive and stuff. And if there’s one good thing I can say about Bob, it’s that he does seem to ward off the jittery, monochromatic film stock.

“Yeah, that’s really sad about your dead family and all. So… sex, or…?”

The piano music starts. They’re in front of a fireplace. Hayden Christensen isn’t wearing a shirt. Hey! It’s the Sex Scene!

Before we embark on this, let me give you a little background on what we’re about to see. According to an “insider source”, the sex portrayed in this scene is not simulated. “They’re really doing it!” this Deep Throat (pardon the pun) is quoted as saying.

As anyone with half an ounce of common sense can tell, the odds of Hayden Christensen, Sienna Miller, George Hickenlooper, and the rest of the crew suddenly deciding that actual sex would be cool and easier to film than fake sex, are pretty slim. It is kind of funny to think about, though. “Unh! Unh! Unh!” “Okay, cut! Look, let’s adjust that lens… yes. Can you move that light over here? Over here, please? Yes. Okay, can we take that again, from the top? Rolling!” “Unh! Unh! Unh!” Yes, that sounds like a very likely scenario to me. But I also believe an actress was actually murdered on camera.

I was born in 1987 to a criminal psychologist and an Australian immigrant. In 2008 I published my first recap for the Agony Booth. I believe that about sums it up.
