On February 2, 2022, hulu’s new drama “Pam & Tommy” is here!
What? You still don’t know who Pam & Tommy is?
In the 1990s, Pamela Anderson was the hottest actress in the world.
“Baywatch,” which she starred in, was once the most-watched TV series in the world, airing in 142 countries and territories, with more than 1.1 billion weekly viewers.
And Tommy Lee’s Motley Crue is a classic band of pop metal in the 80s.
Even in the mid-to-late 1990s, when pop metal began to decline, Motley Crue maintained high album sales and a broad fan base.
“Pam & Tommy” focuses on the two people who started a flash relationship in 1995, got married after only 95 hours of acquaintance, and caused an uproar when a videotape of their sex was leaked.
“Pam & Tommy” highlights and surprises
Let’s take a look at this familiar cast first, with Lily James playing Pamela.
Lily James, best known to audiences for her role in the live-action version of “Cinderella,” takes a 180-degree turn in the show.
From a good girl to a rebellious “crazy” female star, she highly restored Pamela Anderson’s appearance when she was 28 years old.
Big wavy blond hair, thick lips, deep smoky makeup, and inadvertently revealed plump body, all gestures and gestures are full of unpretentious sexy.
Playing the male lead is Sebastian Stan, who has starred in “Captain America: The First Avenger”, “The Martian”, and the 2021 HEAT sci-fi action drama “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.”
Both of them have highly restored the image of Pam & Tommy in this play. The tattoos and nipple rings are very realistic, and the viewing experience is very good!
The scale of this drama is very large, and basically everything that should be exposed is exposed without reservation.
There’s also a very wild and audacious scene, in Tommy Lee’s “memoir” there is a scene where he talks to his penis, and “Pam & Tommy” is also very vividly filmed.
Regarding the spark of love between the two, the director did a lot of homework during filming – “I think the most challenging part of filming is the extremely crazy love between the two of them, including sex, drug addiction, and carnival.”
Besides, the soundtrack of “Pam & Tommy” is also very nice! Many popular songs from the 1990s also appear in the film, which is really a meticulous review of the popular music of that era.
The two-line narrative of the TV series is more interesting
“Pam & Tommy” cuts in from two perspectives, with the first episode unfolding from the perspective of a carpenter helping Tommy’s home.
Seth Rogen, who played the thief who stole the tape, is also one of the producers of “Pam & Tommy”.
The carpenter who lives at the bottom of society has suffered from Tommy’s renegade and humiliation, and he decides to take revenge on this rock star who doesn’t know how to respect people.
He planned for months to successfully steal Tommy’s safe, which included sex tapes.
The carpenter found an insider in the erotic industry, and the two set about making a big sale, but the foreign adult film industry must first own the copyright in order to distribute it.
All the film distribution bosses persuaded the duo.
In the 1990s when the Internet was not yet popular, carpenters discovered by chance that videotapes could be sold through the Internet, which not only spread widely, but also did not reveal the seller’s information.
The second episode unfolds from the perspective of Pam & Tommy, and it depicts the process of two high-society stars meeting and falling in love.
While talking about wanting to find a good man, Pamela married Tommy who had only known each other for 95 hours.
After the flash marriage, the two had a lovely conversation on the plane. They asked each other what was their favorite movie and food, like a stranger who struck up a conversation.
“Pam & Tommy” has scale and depth
The leak of the tape caused a worldwide uproar, leaving Pam & Tommy the victims of the Internet.
However, the impact of this incident on the woman was even more serious. People continued to pass on sex videos to satisfy their own voyeuristic desires, while cursing Pamela that she was a slut.
In that era, there was no legal protection, and there was no perfect technology. The director’s evaluation of the play: “I hope that we have been away from the chaos of that era. At that time, no one understood that this was an invasion of privacy, and no one knew the impact of the Internet. How huge can it be, and there is no law to define who is responsible for it?”
Is the thief? Is the communication company? Or every ordinary person who has seen the film?
If the same event happened 30 years later today, what would be the result?
Pamela, as a woman, has indeed been treated with double standards in this matter. Whether it is the media or the public, there are more criticisms of her when evaluating the sex tape.
It can be seen in the play that many of the powerful people are men, and they have always shown no respect for women.
“Pam & Tommy”: It’s not just a video, it’s more about the gender issues behind this.
