Michael Pitt Listens Wantonly as Voice Undresses Him for YSL


Yves Saint Laurent's recent men's wear shows have been opening with this Warholian short film directed by photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin which consists of actor Michael Pitt listening and pursing his plump lips as a woman receites an erotic monologue about his clothing, which you never see, as she verbally undresses him.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. 10 seconds into that I was shocked that 4 more minutes of my life were about to me wasted.

  3. I feel sorry for the people who had to sit through that whole, boring mess.

  5. To better appreciate Michael Pitt - Rent "The Dreamers" - Bernardo Bertolucci's homage to 60's radical students in Paris...... You can then enjoy that which you did not see in the above clip!! MP in full blossom!! Trust me it's worth the rental!!! Enjoy!!

  6. Claptrap may sound better in French, but it's still claptrap. C'est vrai!

  8. That is so fucking pretentious it's almost suffocating.

    I saw The Dreamers and I still don't get the appeal.

  9. The younshould see "Hedwig and Angry Inch" and "Last Days." Or better still meet Pitt himself. He's a real charmer.

  11. When I first saw the post I first thought "wow, this guy is about as ugly as the guy from Dreamers!" Turns out it is the guy with a face full of fug from Dreamers. Why do they keep acting like this is someone I want to see, let alone see erotically? Bleah.

  15. There's something hot about the reversal of gender roles here -- the woman narrating (directing events in a way) and the man squirming under her gaze.

    I dunno -- maybe I like it because I'm straight and female and grew up on a constant diet of the Traditional Heterosexual Romance Narrative.

    Not saying it's anything earth-shattering, though.
