Has anyone seen this movie, Original Sin (2001, Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas)?
I got it from Netflix, and it's absolutely unbelievable. It's like a parody of a period drama, trying to reference every possible cliche just for fun. But I'm pretty sure it's intentional camp rather than cheesiness. Although I should mention that I felt this way for a long time about the movie Damage, like it was mocking itself and Jeremy Irons' hyper-repressed English sexuality by freezing the camera for a hilariously long time in high-drama moments. But people I confided this belief in uniformly told me I was stupid. And then I watched it again a couple years ago and wasn't as sure.
But this one is definitely a joke. There's even a carnival scene with a traveling theater troope.
And the really crazy part is that halfway into the movie it turns abruptly into a porn movie for maybe 4 and a half minutes. Not a NC-17 movie either, a full-on hotel room porn movie. Then goes right back to overacted colonial romance. Huh?!? I'm sure it's a body double sometimes , but you can see her face in a reasonable amount of the footage.
So, how can it be that Angelina Jolie is in a porn movie and no one has ever mentioned it to me? And a porn movie with Antonio Banderas?! Maybe I'm just really out of touch??!
I'm actually only halfway through watching; the sleeve promises it will turn into a spy thriller next. I guess I should watch more movies. Any thoughts?
