Netflix's "Cuties" - Epstein's favorite upcoming movie

The director's article got posted to r/movies and I am seeing people in the comments unironically using pedo logic to defend the movie. They consented, they weren't forced to do anything they didn't want too, it was in a safe place with safe people, etc and those posts are getting upvoted. This movie is actually convincing people that sexually exploiting children is okay if the circumstances are right.

In the Exorcist, they used a body double for Linda Blair during the, uh, Crucifix scene. They also never explained to Linda what her character was even doing in the scene.

I'm just saying. If you wanted to push these themes, maybe it would have been better to get young looking adult body doubles for the more inappropriate scenes. Or shoot around that stuff, like not show it at all and just show the horrified or creepy reactions to it.

If the message and intent were what mattered most, then those were worthwhile options to achieve it. Better than using real children for this type of stuff. Just throwing that out there.

If you read history and genealogy, you'll find that every church was a shaming squad for the community. Policing behavior is something that is ingrained into our brain wiring and always has been, only now it can be done via social media instead of in a rickety building with a cross on top. At least back in the 1700's, there was good reason for community policing behavior - lazy assholes, thieves, and women who pump out fatherless babies are a drain on the community and can potentially threaten its survival during leaner times. People today police community behavior for dopamine hits and to ensure the right politicians get elected so gibs can continue to flow.
And whats worse is that the left once said that they wanted to get rid of shaming cause its bad and makes people kill themselves and free love and yet all they did was take control of said shaming and direct it towards keeping themselves in power and push pedo acceptance.

Because that was the least objectionable porn he had.

Imagine someone getting into a shootout with the police in front of an elementary school; he flees across the street before he gets shot down. The headlines read "SHOT FOR JAYWALKING." That's what we're talking about.
So, like any coverage of a black guy getting shot by a cop, then!

I think the best descriptor for this movie would be accidental child sexploitation. It probably wasn't the director's intent, but her film is reminiscent those old movies that had a loose plot but their real purpose was to provide jerk off material.

She accidentally did this:
The Supreme Court had previously ruled that films set in nudist camps were exempt from the general ban on film nudity, as they were deemed to be educational.[7] In the early 1960s, films that purported to be documentaries and were thus "educational" enabled sexploitation producers to evade the censors.[
Except we're not yet at the point where child nudity is acceptable. The left will no doubt try to get us there in the next decade, though. We're gonna see knockoffs of Cuties, mark my words. 😟

At the end of the day I can't help but think of the 90s classic "Leon: The Professional." The truth is that film exploits the hell out of a too-young Natalie Portman. And the intentions of the filmmaker Luc Besson are far more dubious as he based the relationship of Leon & Matilda to himself and his girlfriend (now ex-wife), he also knew her when she was just 12 years old. "The Game" scene in Leon is so pervy it's not even on Youtube in High Quality. When you watch that scene it feels wrong to see a 13 year old girl do this.
They're not really comparable. Leon was well written and the song game is very tame compared to the stuff in Cuties. Besson was definitely a pedo, though.

I haven't watched Cuties, I don't have Netflix and I think you'd be straight up crazy to torrent such a flick even with a VPN. With all that said I read a few commentary pieces and the Wikipedia synopsis so I feel entitled to write my own thoughts on the movie.

I do believe that the director of Cuties, Maïmouna Doucouré is sincere in saying that she didn't intend to make a film that encourages the sexualization of children. I just don't think that's the intention of a woman in her mid-30s. I applaud her for making a movie that criticizes conservative Islamic culture which makes wives second class citizens to their husbands. And it seems genuine that the ultimate point of the movie is that children should be treated as children and allowed to have carefree lives playing jump rope.

I personally question the sincerity of the critics who think it's awful that they have the girl actors perform scenes that are filled with sexual innuendo. It seems to be that the one girl blowing a condom into a balloon is meant to be humorous in that she literally doesn't know what a condom is meant for. We've had tons of movies where children are exposed to risque shit and I just don't think it's fair to scorn this movie for it when you had an American comedy like "
Good Boys" that had similarly aged boys saying explicit shit and interacting with sex toys. I totally agree that filmmakers should not be filming children twerking (you could have made the same points without getting so vulgar) but there is an argument to be made that parents need to realize that the sexually laissez-faire culture we're permitting is going to undoubtedly influence the next generation. So if that's what Cuties has people considering then ultimately I'd say has done a good thing by reflecting a mirror onto modern day trashiness.

At the end of the day I can't help but think of the 90s classic "Leon: The Professional." The truth is that film exploits the hell out of a too-young Natalie Portman. And the intentions of the filmmaker Luc Besson are far more dubious as he based the relationship of Leon & Matilda to himself and his girlfriend (now ex-wife), he also knew her when she was just 12 years old.

Children need to be protected, people should be grossed out by this movie, Netflix deserves the anger it receives, but the attacks on the movie itself feel like a case sensationalism. Again keep in mind I'm not watching the movie because frankly it seems I already got the gist of it.
There is a high-quality video of that "The Game" scene, though.


I don't know about this, though. The film has some weird vibes but doesn't have close-ups of Portman's ass and twerking. That's really where my whole issue lies with Cuties. Nevermind that sex nor sexuality isn't the focus so much as the action asthetic is has.

Being disgusted at child twerking is literally gamergate

Of course. Seriously, even though many others have already said this, one really can't overstate how revolting it is to see this shit turned into a petty politics argument when the film's execution of the subject matter should be appalling to any sane human being regardless of which side you're on. One has to wonder in which fucking planet these journalists live in when they they're so smugly adamant in publicly defending this trash in spite of literally 90% of people everywhere on the internet thinking it's abhorrent.

Leon was actually going to fuck Matilda in the original version of the script. That would have ruined the film imo and not just because it would have been some serious pedo shit.

Even if it was never intended to be pedo bait, pedos will clip out what they want and use it. It's like how every shot of a celebrity's foot becomes an entry on a foot fetish wiki.

Years ago, I remember looking up a toy commercial I saw as a kid. I couldn't find it on Youtube, but I was able to locate a copy somewhere else. I noticed the site seemed to be dedicated to child actors. I became concerned when I realized this wasn't an agency promoting their talent or a Linkedin for kid stars. It was some unaffiliated person's curated collection. There were thousands of clips on this website. Why?
