A recurrent theme in Anderson's work, is what you're saying? I agree, of course. Definitely an ambivalence there towards sex as commodity... but a realization that at its core, that's what sex has to be in a culture as hypocritical about it as ours. I think PTA plays down his intellect and tries to come off down-to-earth- which I think is right, I mean his films are a mixture of raw juice and headiness- but he's also awfully sharp in these kinds of sociocultural observations. He doesn't make them loud- he blends them into the story. Which makes them seem all the more astute and indelible.
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

his movies are all dirty.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

That's just in two out of four. My two favorites of his, but still... not as recurrent a subplot/theme. You could just as easily say (of the same two films), "How's about lonely gay guys in unrequited love?" I think JB hit on the true PTA constant, here...

Sex is mentioned in almost every movie (particularly from an aclaimed director). Think about Solondz, Scorsese, Wes Anderson and every one else.
Typical US Mother: "Remember what the MPAA says; Horrific, Deplorable violence is okay, as long as people don't say any naughty words."

but in all those flicks, sex spun off in a bad way.

sydney - they knocked a man out so he'd pay her and things got out of hand

boogie nights - the downward spiral of the porn industry

magnolia - father raped his daughter = she hates him

punch drunk love - he owes too much money

i noticed that and thought a lot about it wondering what might've happened to our poor paul for him to be hammering that message to us.

Anderson likes P words.

And his name just happens to be Paul.

Coincidence? I think not.
