Well, not really because the camera is still standing in for the male gaze but this is still a very interesting shot!
Still is from the 1970 french film Les Stances à Sophie. Photo copied from Glenn Kenny's blog.
I am curious about what the feminist film theorists have to say about the recent trend in bollywood movies of male actors shedding their clothes and the camera objectifying their bodies. (The contours of Aamir Khan's naked torso are on national news.) So is it the film makers acknowledging the existence of a female spectator finally?
