On its surface, Atomic Blonde looks like a film with kick-ass action choreography.
The movie follows the Monomyth screenplay structure of the Hero’s journey, that we are used to seeing in most Hollywood productions where every story has a beginning, a middle and an end: In the beginning you setup your hero (or heroine) and her story, then you throw something at her that is a great source of conflict and takes her into a whole heap of trouble, where she faces many foes and has to overcome various obstacles.
At the end the hero saves the day and wins the girl (Or does she)?
In Atomic Blonde style is whatprevails, and just like in the first 60 seconds on the trailer: The Politics of Dancing. That style expanded into the sex scenes, as seen restricted trailer, between Charlize Theron and costar Sofia Boutella, who plays a French spy. Their chemistry onscreen, according to Theron, didn’t take all that much effort.”Seducing her? It’s very easy, she’s gorgeous!” Theron said at a panel at SXSW Sunday, ET Online reports. “She was just great. She was the only actress that we looked at.
(Damn, Theron produced the movie and got to pick out the actress she wanted to have a lesbian sex scene with, talk about having Hollywood power.)
She [Boutella] came over and hung out with me and [director David Leitch] and there was something about her that was so genuinely innocent and yet incredibly strong (If you say so Charlize, I guess that is one way to express your attraction to Boutella), she was really perfect for the film, being naked is nothing.’ We just wanted it to be real and cool.”
Oh sure Theron and Boutella want to be “COOL” all while making audiences hot!
I LOVE this because it allows my Musings to go on a Tangent, wondering if Theron has ever tasted the: ‘Ruby Fruit’ in the real world and off camera, or is she content with having just about to any woman she wants as long as it “acting?”
I remember when fans would be all googly eyed over looking at Angelina Jolie and Elizabeth Mitchell in GIA and how fan forums and lesbian websites couldn’t get enough of the two (Not to mention the Fan-Fiction and fan made music videos).
I am not seeing an of this yet for Atomic Blonde, at least I am not seeing it from the other Dyke Sites like: After Ellen, Lesbian News, Auto Straddle etc. Shit they wanted that Roller Derby movie that starred Ellen Page to win Best Picture at the goddamn Academy Awards! WTF?!
I mean Here We Fucking Go AGAIN! There was a time I lambasted Hollywood lesbian media for ignoring the television show: Empire and its lesbian subtext because the show was focused on people of color, but I don’t know what the fuck their issue is with Theron considering:
Charlize Theron, Katey Sagal Raise Money for ACLU, GLAAD at Shelter for All Charity Event
Are you fucking kidding me?! Fine let those other sites carry on with their articles about mediocre looking women and the L Word Reboot (?) Because if it’s anything like the way the show fizzled out, I am placing my money on that Gorgeous 44[?] year old blond in the photo above.
They can keep their ‘low-energy’ Kristen Steward and Ellen Page I am rooting for the 44 year old WOMAN, who has made out with Sophia Boutella [Atomic Blonde], Penelope Cruz [Head In The Clouds] and Christina Ricci [Monster]
