A Guide to Making Love
A Guide to Making Love is a commentary we created to compliment and supplement Making Love. It’s a 40 minute theoretical commentary we made on the movie Making Love. In it I explore the philosophical and theological themes that animate the movie. We look at Drive, Desire, Self-Sabotage, love, and two types of transcendence.
While commentaries are often optional extras in movies, I see this as a vital, enmeshed, part of this project.
The idea is that each element will enrich and deepen the other. It’s a model I’ve tried to use in my books, especially the first one - which played on the movement between the intellectual and existential dimensions of Pyrotheology.
