"She had never understood either of the men she had loved and so she had lost them both. Now, she had a fumbling knowledge that, had she ever understood Ashley, she would never have loved him; had she ever understood Rhett, she would never have lost him."

Throughout the film, Jon tellingly refers to Barbara as a “beautiful thing” instead of “person.” This says so much about not only the characters in the film but also men and women in general. Jon sees Barbara as an object to be obtained, but it doesn’t occur to Barbara that she’s being objectified: in fact she seems flattered. The women in these scenes all see this as romantic and sweet.This is what happens in society: women are objectified constantly, in film and television and advertising and it trickles into real life. Not only are we fed these images and ideas, but we’re taught that this is acceptable and that this is something we should want. This movie isn’t just about porn and addiction: it’s about how whatever we see on the screen can affect society.

I’m still so fixated on this movie. One of my favorites. It’s disgusting how into it I am.

I know some people don’t really like this ambiguous ending, but I think it’s great. This script has fantastic screen direction from Steve McQueen and Abi Morgan executed perfectly from Michael Fassbender. I love how nothing is spoken, but we can see all the emotions described just from Fassbender’s facial expressions. The final ending is changed quite a bit, but the same idea is still there. There has been some debate as to whether he succumbs to his urges or not, but to me that’s not what’s important in this scene. I think the message that this scene gives is that because he is an addict he has to go through a struggle with himself and his urges and his emotions every time he finds himself in a similar situation. This ending shows that for his character, it’s never really over (not at least until he gets some major help) and we can tell by that last look he gives that he is disgusted and ashamed by that, but at the same time, he still can’t look away.
