"I don’t see what the big fuss is about nudity. I think we’re all still too Victorian about it. If you’re a grown adult, you’ve all seen naked bodies. There’s far too much pressure on poor young women to look a certain way. I really believe that. And I think it gives actresses a huge complex when they have to do scenes like that. It’s much easier for us guys.”
so uh… Now my dear Kit? like now now… Now? Alrighty!
Board Doctor: What if one of your patients had died? Patch Adams: What’s wrong with death, sir? What are we so mortally afraid of? Why can’t we treat death with a certain amount of humanity and dignity and decency and, God forbid, maybe even humor? Death is not the enemy, gentlemen. If we’re gonna fight a disease, let’s fight one of the most terrible diseases of all–indifference. Now, I’ve sat in your schools and heard people lecture on transference and professional distance. Transference is inevitable, sir. Every human being has an impact on another. Why don’t we want that in a patient/doctor relationship? That’s why I’ve listened to your teachings, and I believe they’re wrong. A doctor’s mission should be not just to prevent death but also to improve the quality of life. That’s why you treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you win, no matter what the outcome.
If you combined the two scenes together you would have the perfect mix of sexual and romantic tension.
I just wanna say that there was no sexual tension between Hathaway and bale because there was no chemistry. Keaton and Pfeiffer’s scene had PALPABLE tension. Their chemistry on and off screen was discernable.
Hence my saying combining both. What Bale and Hathaway lacked in sexual chemistry, they made up for with their restrained back and forth banter that recalls a Golden Age / old romantic classic. Either way, still a homage to the very best of their ineffable dynamic.
