This week for the Monday Movie Meme, the Bumbles are featuring a topic brought to us from Nicole of The Madlab Post. Even though we have already covered movies about prison, we are honing in on women who are held captive, imprisoned, or who act as guards or captors.
Digression: In certain settings, why is it that women in prisons seems like the ultimate turn-on for every red-blooded male? Some movies, like Canned Heat for example, just pander to this fantasy. I find it the slightest bit demeaning.
OK, so what examples could I pull out of my hat this morning?
Not only does Kate Winslet's character act as a prison guard for a concentration camp, but she ends up on the other side of the bars as well. We'll just call that cosmic karma for messing with young boys and killing Jews.
This would be an example of me talking about of both sides of my mouth! Coincidentally, we just saw this movie over Spring Break so it is fresh in my mind. One could sum up this movie by saying "imprisoned and exploited sex kittens kick Nazi zombie ass in leather, thigh-high stockings and stiletto heels". Or in other words, that demeaning thing. In this case, though, it was all kinds of fun.
