I went to see I, Robot on Leicester Square the other day. Great film; really classic SciFi, addressing the paradoxes we face with the technological acceleration we see around us every day.
Here's something that I don't get though: In the opening scenes of the film, there are some arty shots of Will Smith, all naked in the shower. Of course, the poses are creatively filmed not to show any ... thing, but still nothing else to obscure the view (to many of the female viewers' amusement). Later in the film, co-star Bridget Moynahan is seen showering, but now (because she is a girl?) behind a frosted glass wall, heaps of steam etc.
Equality, ladies! What happened to it? ;-) Is this just more US over-political correctness - not showing female skin, while male poses in-shower are no issue?
Sometimes I just wonder...
