Saw Igor today. It had some good scenes in it, but the story was kind of muddled and left several promising concepts unexplored.

One thing it did have, though, was a pantless character. A human character, wearing the top half of a suit, boots, glasses and headphones, and nothing else. He appears fully onscreen like this, not blocked by a table or anything. Can you guess how they got away with this in an American film?

Nope! He's quite slender. And the shots he's in are no more contrived or specially framed than any other character.

I'm guessing this is a shit-bricks question. He's only seen from behind when he's shown all the way down?

Nope, he's often shown full-on from the front.

The viewers are so mesmerized by the beauty of his penis that they never complain?

Well, I'm sure they won't complain, but that's not why.

Does the character even exist from the waist down? Is he half-invisible or similar?

He's got a lower half, all right (as I said, he wears boots). As for your second question, you're half right. :}

That reminds me: Why haven't you made any WALL-E icons yet? You usually love Pixar stuff.

No ideas yet, and anyway I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD.

I haven't seen any good reviews on this one yet (1s and 2s out of 5), so I'm not rushing out to see it (hell, I don't rush to see any movie! Last year there were a few that I wanted to see but never did get to the theatre to do so. Wound up buying one on DVD, and forgot what the other ones were!
