Faced with a choice at our local arthouse cinema this past weekend, certain members of Team Fleshbot opted to see the Bob Dylan sort-of-biopic “I’m Not There” instead of “Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead”. But that was before we knew that the new Sidney Lumet potboiler topped Mr. Skin’s list of the Top 20 Nude Scenes of the year—apparently, Marisa Tomei’s toplessness is enough to remind everyone that she really did deserve to win that Oscar all those years ago. Fortunately, we did manage to catch several of the other selections that made it onto the list, including Natalie Portman’s asstastic appearance in “Hotel Chevalier” and Sienna Miller’s almost continuously naked star turn in “Factory Girl”. In the meantime, you can probably guess what we’ll be lining up to see this weekend—after all, if it took Marisa all this time to take off her top without using to a body double, who knows when we’re going to have a chance to see another award-winning performance of hers like this again?
