Try is the operative word. Gyllenhaal and Ledger saddle up to play gay cowboys whose relationship becomes official in a secluded tent after a night of too much whiskey. One of the most celebrated sex scenes of all time, this one is artfully done and told out of sequence—director Steven Soderbergh being as playful with editing and time and narrative as his two leads, Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney, are with each other. Flirty and cheeky as they undress, they do finally get horizontal, their lips do finally lock, and unfortunately, the screen does finally fade to black. In the Realm of the Senses has long been considered one of the most perverse and erotic films to have ever slinked across the screen. Sexually explicit and non-simulated in its acts, the art-house gem about a real-life tabloid scandal features countless coital climaxes between its two leads. But the red dress scene manages to leave a little more to the imagination than the rest of the film, making for quite the arousing watch. Its innocence is vital to the brutal and difficult-to-watch sexual deed that comes in the third act of the film. Kerr and Lancaster star as Karen and Milton, a pair of adulterous lovers who get lost in the ebb and flow of the waves and the toss and turn of each other. Cecilia and Robbie— her in that green dress , he in that black tux—consummate their love for one another, pinned against a stack of books.
