Today’s guest post is written by Charlie X (they/he), a blogger I have only recently started reading and who shares the most incredible photos! Follow them on Twitter @CharlieXblog. They have chosen to look at Contact through a Freudian psychoanalytical lens and it is fascinating…
SEX SCORE: 2.5/5
✔️ Contact passes the Bechdel Test.
❌ But Charlie did not want to fuck the cast. (I probably would…)
❌ And we both agree that it didn’t inspire fantasies. It’s not really a movie about sex!
❓ Which is why it’s difficult to say whether it’s sex positive or not. There are no red flags but no are there positive attributes either…
✔️ But is is definitely rewatchable! If only because there are a lot of strands to pick at and lots to think about.
As always, this contains spoilers so watch the film before you read on…
