No. There’s no discontinuity. I don’t think you’re hearing me, or I’m just not being clear. So I apologize. Dogs aren’t having sex with you when they hump your leg. Anymore than they are french kissing you when they lick your face. It is domination behavior. Sex and domination, in the animal world, are not necessarily the same thing. I’m thinking of the term sillogism in this case. Sure, sex might involve domination. But not all domination involves sex. When your dog jumps up on your guests at the front door, she’s not having sex with them. She is dominating them. The two things are different. I’m not sure why you insist upon conflating them in this instance.
Whatever you think you are hearing in the rustling of cloth notwithstanding, what is the end-game to raping the man exactly? Can you explain that to me? As disgusting as this line of questioning is, and as wrongheaded as I believe it to be, on a base level it seems hopelessly inefficient. “I’ll just fuck you for awhile and then if you don’t answer my questions, we’ll move on to waterboarding.”
Again, it’s a weird fantasy cooked up by some blog somewhere that simply makes no sense. Alejandro is ruthless and efficient. You really think he’s going to go sideways and waste his time fucking one of his enemies while Josh Brolin sits there and looks on? To say nothing of the danger it exposes him to physically, what would be the point?
We see all we need to know in what the director shows us in the scene. The man is humiliated already. Now he has to be broken. Water will do fine. And much more efficiently in the universe of this movie, and this character. If we accept that torture works at all, I don’t see how raping the man helps him get the information that he wants.
Unless you want to try to argue that part of his plan of flushing out the guy who gets called back to Mexico is the humiliation of rape of the brother. Which might be a thing, but is such a stretch. And if that’s what the filmmakers intended, they neglected to tell us about it. Which is pretty much a fail.
Again. I’m not buying it.
