Alive, Ass, and Friends: whotheeffisbucky: fantastic-fantasy-fanfics: whotheeffisbucky: angryschnauzer: comicbookfilms: Justice League (2017) dir. Zack Snyder Only a male director would put an upskirt shot into a movie and hope no one mentions it. @angryschnauzer RIGHT? RIGHT?!ย  The huge difference between the way sheโ€™s shot in the Patty Jenkins film compared to this is ridiculous. Itโ€™s framed in such a way that we could be viewing her actual vagina, but the shadowing leaves a little more to the imagination. The male gaze is alive and kicking, my friends.ย  I could write an entire essay about this, but this is one of the most clear cut examples I can think of.ย  You canโ€™t see up her skirt? And itโ€™s to make her look taller? More intimidating? If it was an up-skirt shot youโ€™d see her bare ass cheeks or an implication of her vag. You canโ€™t. Not to mention, JOSS WHEDON re-shot a lot of the scenes in Justice league (and made them worse), AND was in charge of overseeing editing while Zach was mourning his daughter. So if youโ€™re going to blame someone, donโ€™t blame Zach for this, blame Joss Whedon. Zachโ€™s cut if Justice League ACTUALLY respected Diana If it was an up-skirt shot youโ€™d see her bare ass cheeks or an implication of her vag. You canโ€™t. Not to mention, JOSS WHEDON re-shot a lot of the scenes in Justice league (and made them worse), AND was in charge of overseeing editing while Zach was mourning his daughter. @fantastic-fantasy-fanfics Thatโ€™s not the point I was making. Neither director has been mentioned at all in this post.ย There are alternative ways to make an individual look taller. The Dutch Shot has many uses. Example:The camera is tilted and keeps both actors in frame, whilst achieving the desired effect. What Iโ€™m arguing is wrong is the choice of angle that deliberately places Wonder Woman in a position to be looked at in a sexual manner. Moreover, an upskirt shot does not have to include any bare flesh at all. If anything, itโ€™s designed to imply, rather than simply show.ย Itโ€™s not an issue with Zach Snyder, there was never any mention of him. But the issue still stands: the shot was clearly done to appease the male gaze and is needlessly oversexualised. Itโ€™s a standing problem in popular film and looks very obvious here when you compare it to how Patty Jenkins shot the Wonder Woman film.
