LOVE - truth, lies, possession, and freedom
Boy was I wrong when I said its basically porn. I thought so momentarily as it opened with an affectionately sensual scene of mutual masterbation, a sign of consideration and tenderness between Murphy and Electra, usually absent in porn. After my initial suprise I realized they actually care about eachother. Then it suddenly shifts to him waking up with Omi, another woman. It does this quite a few times through the movie getting longer between shifts for most of it then shifting faster back and forth between points in time towards the end like his perception of reality and recollection. The life he currently wakes up to pales in comparison to the point in time he constantly reminisced and its taking a toll on his mental health. His inability to remember the past from a positive positive perspective might be a clue to why he is unhappy with his decisions. His adventurous past with Electra included experimentation with sex and drugs then addiction to both and eachother. They both had a fantasy of having sex with their significant other and a blonde girl they eventually find named omi as well as their own separate fantasies. They eventually couldn't accept eachothers difference in preferences and inability to understand them. Michael Larson said, "The difference between love and lust clarifies as trust". Murphy couldnt trust Electra because he couldnt respect her as a free human with preferences. Electras insistence on drug usage during sex has created a surreal place they never want to leave. Murphy impregnating Omi unbeknownst to Electra was a betrayal of Electras expectations of loyalty. Electra wanting to share the love with multiple people betrays Murphys expectations of loyalty. So again, simply put, They cant accept there are some things they will never understand. Before they realize this, they lose respect for eachother and become unwilling to change for eachother... but mainly Murphy honestly he kinda of seemed like a bitch for not banging that tranny but you like what you like and you cant force someone to do something they dont want to do. We all do things we dont want to do so suck a tranny dick dude, we all should. How do you know you dont like if you haven't done it? Ive skipped ahead but only a bit and so does the movie. They tried more adventurous sex because it was recommended by a police officer to open his mind to sharing their happiness but Murphy was selfish and wanted her all to himself only he didnt realized he already did but he ruined it by using his american pride and self victimization as an excuse to be an entitled asshole.
Thank you, @selenadiaz97 for recommending this movie. Love is life and life is love so we should love life like i love "LOVE"
