  1. The Question of the Male Gaze in Bound, The Girl who Played with Fire, and But I’m a Cheerleader Michelle Mancuso

  2. BOUND • Male Gaze is represented by: • Objectification of both bodies on screen: • Camera angles and motion focus on their bodies, not their actions • Both women are sexualized, not just the passive • The importance of the Butch-Femme Dynamic

  3. THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE • Male gaze represented: • Lisbeth as the actor • Wide frames creating feeling of voyeurism • Another gaze is represented: • Nude bodies exist in non-sexual settings

  4. BUT I’M A CHEERLEADER • Another gaze is represented: • Nothing is explicit • Both women are fully clothed • Choppy cuts and poor lighting • A male gaze is represented: • Graham is the actor

  5. CONCLUSIONS • The films portray a spectrum • All of them rely on the body spectacle • None are free from the male gaze
