underrated for sure
I agree with the writer who mentioned that this film is too often underrated because it deals with a very dark side of sexuality that many people deny in society and in themselves. The relationship portrayed in the film is an adult one, and as such it is not a Little Mary Sunshine portrayal. It is a mature look at sex, not love, and it never pretends to be a romance. The characters find each other and they enjoy each other in a way that many people cannot accept, and therein lies the reality, the truth of this film, as well as the reason that it is consistently overlooked. For an established actress like Kim Basinger to accept this role and play it as naturally as she did speaks to her talent as well at to her willingness to explore alternate “romantic” ideas on film. Mickey Rouke has always been a maverick force in film. Look at him in “Diner” and you will see what I mean by that. He is much more talented than people give him credit for, and younger filmophiles should discover this early work and try to perceive him as an actor, not a joke.
Mickey Rourke completely underrated
What amazed me about this film was the underappreciation for Mickey Rourke’s performance. After watching the film a couple of times I am far less fascinated by Kim Basinger than by Rourke’s character Jon. Sure Jon was very aggressive sexually with Elizabeth, and many seem to understand this as being crude or offensive. Instead Jon strikes me as being more honest than slimy. While other men in Jon’s position, a wealthy commodities broker, would try to use his position to win over Elizabeth, Jon just straight-forward lets her know that he wants her. I also don’t think Jon merely wants Elizabeth for sex. Clearly he enjoys her company for more than just that, in fact he shares a great deal of his world with her. I think what is offensive about Rourke’s character is that Jon is so unapologetically male. First, Jon has a high-powered job which at the time was extremely risky and lucrative. Yeah, while Jon lives in a fancy apartment and buys Elizabeth nice things, it is clear that he is not a trust-fund baby but a guy who worked his way to the top with determination and balls.
That helps explain the most difficult scene in the movie. Elizabeth has been snooping through his stuff and Jon returns enraged and semi-rapes Elizabeth. Earlier that evening Jon had promised to take care of Elizabeth and provide for her every need, which is quite a commitment, and he leaves her alone for a short time but finds that he already cannot really trust her. His response to her actions is bizarre, first he wants to spank her then he forcefully makes love to her. Is it abusive? Yes probably. What the hell does it mean? Well, here you have a guy who is in an extremely competitive position where he has scrapped his way to the top. In his position weakness and vulnerability get you decimated in your job, and most women you meet probably only want you for your money. Jon takes a chance with a girl he meets randomly who he seems to have a real connection with, and almost from the get-go she compromises his trust. He forces himself on her because he is desperate to have connection with somebody who will be a refuge for him, yet from his perspective he already cannot trust her.
The rest of the movie, all of the sexual escapades, including the sex scene at the end with the prostitute is Jon trying to determine how much he should really give himself to Elizabeth. The scene where Elizabeth shows up at his work is indicative of this. Clearly he is not happy at first that she showed up there. Judging from the size of his office this guy is at the pinnacle of success, and letting somebody he isn’t sure he can trust into that world is very risky for him. Not only does it reveal himself to her, but it reveals to the other people around him that he is vulnerable. For men of power in that kind of position, vulnerability can destroy their careers.
The prostitute scene at the end wasn’t just some other kinky escapade. I think it was a final test for Jon so that he would know whether Elizabeth was really committed to him or not, or if she was only viewing their relationship as a sexual game. To him it was the only way to know how exclusively she cared about him. When she reacted by making out with the random guy in the porn theater, Jon finally understood that she really did care about him. By that point, however he had destroyed any trust she had in him.
Basinger’s character, Elizabeth in contrast, was far less complicated. She enjoys her friends, has a good relationship with her parents, and even has a decent relationship with her ex-husband. If you contrast the type of jobs the two have in the movie, it is easy to see the dramatic differences in their lives. Elizabeth casually jokes with her boss and co-workers, and the biggest pressure in her life is whether an artist will show up at a show.
This movie was about all of the things that sex communicates, and ultimately Rourke brilliantly pulls off a complicated character who is unabashedly male and dying to be vulnerable at the same time.
