In the latest movie by Gaspar Noé (Irreversible, Enter the Void), an American named Murphy (Karl Glusman) and his lover, Electra (Aomi Muyock), allow their beautiful neighbor, Omi (Klara Kristin), into their lives and into their bedroom. While the non-linear film is filled with unsimulated sex, what makes the movie a step above porn is the fact the narrative is propelled by the sexual action. When Murphy prefers to be pleasured by one person instead of another, the sexual act impacts all their relationships. Intended as an immersive experience, this movie may be the first in cinema history to feature a three-dimensional on-screen ejaculation. Can the virtual reality version be far behind?
Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice
In theaters March 22 | PG-13 | 151 minutes
Guys who cannot resist watching a muscle man in tights may find it even tougher to resist a man in body-tight armature equipped with toys. Gals get their eye candy too: Gal Gadot plays the first-ever silver screen appearance of Wonder Woman. Facing off in this superhero epic are Batman (Henry Cavill) and Superman (Ben Affleck) as the Gotham City vigilante grows concerned there’s no oversight on the Kryptonian. Of course a greater threat emerges putting humanity at risk – if only the superheroes could work together, but watching them tussle is tons of fun. Directed by Zack Snyder, the film co-stars Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane and Laurence Fishburne as Perry White.
