It’s quite interesting to know that most of the cinemas around Metro Manila has been filled by fanatics Wednesday night as Fifty Shades Darker, the freshest installation of the BDSM Fifty Shades series by E.L. James, hit the theaters nationwide. And yes, Fifty Shades Darker is already here, and the saga of reviews began.
I won’t be too hypocrite here, comparing the book and the movie or citing scenes that should have been better included or should have not been there. It’s the critics’ job. I just wanted to share how love and lust were played in this movie series.
Love VS Lust
According to Merriam Webster, love (\’lǝv\) is a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person; while, on the other hand, lust (\’lǝst\) is a strong feeling of sexual desire or strong desire for something. As you can see, they were both defined by the word “strong”.
For Fifty Shades Darker, Director James Foley and Screenwriter Niall Leonard has been very successful in picturing how much Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan, transformed into a “good-loveable” man from a kinky f—ery badass. They also made sure to emphasize that Grey really loves Anastasia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson. As a matter of fact, right at the beginning of the movie, Grey said that he’ll compromise with his partner’s terms just to rekindle their relationship. And Steele gladly responded with her mantra “no rules, no punishments, and no more secrets”.

Though kinky sex scenes were limited in the movie, its production seems to give the viewers an understandable amount of nudity (topless). Admit it or not, the actors really worked hard to attain a good looking sexy body. Also, every act that’s happening between the two, like spanking, were with Steele’s consent.
If you’re going to analyse what happened in the movie, you’ll notice that love overpowers lust as how Steele turns the table. They just brought lovey-dovey twist in the second level with Fifty Shades Darker.
