Best Love Scene, Ever?


So, like, what’s your favorite love scene from the movies? I would like to know yours. Mine is this motel seduction sequence from Bottle Rocket. I believe that part of its imperfect perfection lies in the choice of music, “Alone Again Or,” by Love, with its mariachi horns absurdly invoking the allure of Inez. The Love song was inspired in part by Prokofiev’s ‘Lieutenant Kije Suite.’ Prokofiev based the suite on his music for the 1933 film of the same name, which was based on a Soviet novel. One common thread between the novel, the 1933 film, the suite, the song, and Bottle Rocket is this: lovers get separated.
