Taking it off in the right movie

October 30, 2003

I loved Lisa Rosen's article "It's a Studio Cover-Up" (Oct. 23). The only difference is that I am a guy and I do hope every movie contains nudity and, therefore, have noticed this problem ages ago.

I don't have to see nudity in every movie that comes out, but I strongly believe that part of the magic and novelty of movies is that you are watching something you are not supposed to be watching. I don't expect to see nudity in "The Mighty Ducks." But Rosen is right: In "Bridget Jones's Diary," an excellent film, the lack of nudity is movie acne. I just wanted to say, I'm glad someone wrote about it. In the best love scenes, we don't necessarily think about the nudity -- "Fatal Attraction," "The Lover," "Last Tango In Paris" -- we think about the heat, the passion, the fearlessness, the animal magnetism.
