there is something about kissing scenes in old films. they seem so much more alive and beautiful than kissing scenes in films these days. directors try too hard to go for the sexy, lustful thing whereas the directors back then seemed to go for the beautiful, “in love” feeling.
maybe i just spend way too much time watching turner classic movies.
No, no no, I agree so much with what you say here. And oftentimes, it’s almost the same in real-life. I think people now kiss with so much lust (i.e. let’s fuck I want to fuck you now now now) instead of slow, languid kisses that don’t mean sex but just, “I love you, I want you here in my arms and nothing else.”
