I don’t know what it is about the slap that turns me on so much. Maybe it’s the pretension that goes on behind it. There is always a judgment being cast with a slap. It’s insulting, it stings, but it doesn’t always come from the same place that a punch does. A slap is a wordless way to say, “I’m in control and you are not.” I think that’s the closest root to any slap. Here’s a collection of cinema slaps for you to enjoy.
