That was a Big Bike
"Girl On a Motorcycle" started out being one of the most unusual movies I have ever seen, yet as I watched teh story unfold, I realized that I was a lot like Rebecca. She was free. She was liberated. It makes no difference if her wedding present was a bike from another man or not- either way it was hers and it was her ticket to freedom. The make gaze in this movie was more than obvious with the silly sounds she made and the close-up of her zipping up her black, leather, tight motorcycle suit. Also, with the security guards smacking her on the butt and army men hooting and hollering at her. Yes, there was much male gaze, BUT it does not mean in the least bit that she has no freedom or liberation or power while being a woman. I think that all the attention gave her more power than an average woman just because her looks could and did get her to places that some other females might not be able to get to. She took advantage of the men's smaller brain's and went with it, which makes her not only smart, but creative, and for that I give her mad props. Even though she was "battling" in her mind between which man she wanted, deep down she didn't want any of them. She wanted a mix of the two and if she couldn't have it, she didn't want it. Rebecca was a free, strong, spicy, nympho who knew how to shift a bike.
