Start your review of Indecent Proposal Write a review Shelves: jack-engelhard 20 years after I watched the movie by the same title, I finally read the original novel "Indecent Proposal". In fact, I thought that Woody Harrelson portrayed an unattractive person in comparison to Robert Redford, which made the question even more natural. Something was missing. For starters, there is the fact that both, Joan and Joshua, have been married before, that they have divorced their previous spouses to be with each other.
That opens a whole new dimension, because what Joan had done before, namely leave her first husband, she could do again and leave Joshua; or it could be the other way around: Joan would never leave Joshua because she really knew for sure that Joshua was: " The underdog. The fighter. The loner. The wanderer. Obviously, Hollywood understands the power of the visual image better than anybody else, Hollywood creates the images, which sway our feelings toward this or that.
In his novel Engelhard refers occasionally to the Holocaust Joshua escaped as a child with his parents. It is because of the pictures that Amercian soldiers took when entering the concentration camps that we will never forget the Holocaust, whereas other undocumented atrocities in earlier history have become this blob, which we cannot associate any feelings with.
Pictures document feelings and create feelings. Joan does not know that her feelings, while having sex with Ibrahim have been recorded, but Ibrahim tells Joshua, and Joshua even gets to see part of the movie.
Joshua mentions the recording of the movie to Joan but claims later that there is no movie and that he just said so. Uncertainty about possible documentation is even worse and Joan has to live through it. In life, "documented reality" changes everything for real people excluding politicians like John Edwards. You hear that? Everybody wants something better out of life. We cater to that, to that weakness, to that weakness in everybody--even the Ibrahims of the world.
Highly recommend to all over the age of And, yes, the sex scene is very steamy.
