10/15 Discussion Question: Mulvey "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema"

| No Comments

In "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema," Mulvey brings up an interesting point: "The magic of the Hollywood style at its best (and all of the cinema which fell within its sphere of influence) arose, not exclusively, but it one important aspect, from its skilled and satisfying manipulation of visual pleasure." However, she talks about this in regards to the central place of the image of woman, and not man.

My discussion question is: Do you think that the thrill of seeing the human form of a woman and a man is still a sexual imbalance in today's society, or is it still more so geared towards women? Why do you think it is that only women are simultaneously looked at an displayed as an erotic impact, and why not men as well? Do you think it has to do with the media itself or the public's opinion? Why?
