I crave liberation and sensual trips and intuitional adventure as much as the next flowering puritan. I am sure, for example, there are more and subtler ways of talking than words can ever express, and vibrations are in the air like radio waves just waiting for receivers. We are communicating like crazy, trying to go through and beyond words; all the wild, compulsive dialogues about sex are a first step. In movies, every way is possible, even backwards, and often, as a movie like Claire's Knee shows, the apparently oldest is the newest.
