Hatchet Job of the Day – Take This Waltz
TAKE THIS WALTZ has been enjoying some very positive responses on its release this week.
Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian, however, wasn’t impressed with the “bedroom moments” in a film about infidelity…
At one stage, two characters go for some flirty afternoon martinis, but you might almost imagine that the subsequent dialogue about sex is a spoof, dubbed in for a hoax, and what they are actually talking about is the texture of Jarlsberg cheese. Until, that is, we reach the film’s most extraordinary sequence, a cutesy “sex” montage, which takes place in a very expensive-looking loft apartment. It is enough to make Alex Comfort’s beard fall out: one of the most odd and unsexy sex scenes in cinema history. The bedroom moments of the puppets in Team America looked more human and believable than this bizarre sex scene, which seems to misread its own characters.
