Two recent posts by @Jon Smithie in the Tied Up thread gave me the idea for this new one. I used the search function of the forum but could not find out if there was already a similiar thread like this.

I would like to ask you to share scenes from movies you know (and hopefully like) that fit the following criteria
- The scene is from a mainstream movie or show (not a porn)
- The scene has at least one of the topics: bondage, captivity, interrogation or torture
- The scene should have part- or full-nudity (who of us doesn't prefer this?)

And for the start, I am going to share some scenes from the German TV movie "Die Pilgerin" (2014) with the adorable Josefine Preuss in the main role of Tilla.

The plot of the movie in a brief summary: Medieval Germany. To respect the last whish of her murdered father, Tilla wants to take his heart across the famous pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela. Since using this road is reserved to men, she cuts off her hair and poses as boy. And there is something of a conspiracy going on in the background about the death of her father and the legacy of his business.

Her co-travellers grow suspicious about her. When an argument turns into a fight, Tilla's clothes tear, exposing not only her lie.

Later, she is captured by an old enemy of her father who gives her a hard time at his castle before she eventually manages to escape.

...and I don't remember the context of this scene anymore.

But in the end, everything turns out well. Tilla reaches her destination, fulfilling her father's last whish. And the conspiracy against her family is somehow solved, too.

Yes! Thank you Dommu for starting this thread. I had searched for a mainstream movie thread before posting my last two messages in "Tied up." They did seem just a little off topic to me, but it didn't occur to me to start a new thread. I love movies, and for various reasons (higher budgets, better acting, and typically more attractive actors (i.e. actresses in Old Speak,) mainstream movies seem to stimulate my erotic and perverted imagination more effectively than porn, even though they don't usually deliver the goods.

Great scene from "Die Pilgerin" above. I've never heard of that movie and I'd dearly love to find it. But it also demonstrates what I mean by a mainstream movie not delivering the goods, although it is far more graphic than a comparable scene in an American movie would be, at least when it comes to nudity. Since Tilla's pants have been pulled down, exposing her pubic hair, why not strip her entirely naked? I expect it would make sense in the scene, so why not go for it? Ah well. Such is my love/hate relationship with mainstream movies.

In addition to your criteria above, I'd also like to encourage people to include how they have the scene to play out in their imagination, because, as I say, most scenes will fall a bit short.

The movie is available on DVD and BluRay and at some streaming services. But I doubt that it was ever subtitled or dubbed in other languages, since it was not produced for the box office but by a private German TV station.

I also think that German (or generally European) movies go a little further with nudity than American movies. I discovered that the actress from above has regular topless appearances and even went fully nude at some occasions. But why is there no full nudity in the interrogation scene, although it would be logical?

For context: Every movie that you want to publish in Germany (regardless if for the box office, streaming, DVD or TV broadcast) must be rated by a board that gives a recommendation for a minimum age of the viewers. The steps are: 0, 6, 12, 16 and 18 years. If you want to broadcast your movie at the prime time (8:15 pm in Germany), it must not exceed the 12-rating.

An interrogation scene with a fully naked Tilla hanging from her wrists getting beaten by her keptor would have definately driven the minimum age rating up. You will also find many American action movies being heavily cut for the German TV so that the rating goes down. The most ridiculous example I ever saw was "Taken 2". The DVD version has the 16-rating, but for TV it was cut so badly, that they even left the death of the antagonist out (he suddenly disappeared from the screen mid-fight without any explanation).

Some screencaps of Madeleine Stowe in two movies: The first set is from "Closet Land" a 1991 movie in which Madeleine plays a writer of children's books who is accused of attempting to influence children with anti government messages hidden in her writings. She is subjected to physical and psychological torture. It is all rather stylized and surreal, with a minimalist set. There is no nudity or graphic torture. Unfortunately I could only find the movie at second hand on Youtube, so the caps are grainy.

closet2.PNGcloset4.PNG She is tortured with red hot skewers and electricity, and bound in a stress position closet5.PNG

closet1.jpg The writer, Radha Barawaj, wrote "Closet Land" originally as a movie screenplay, but later made it into a stage play. I also found a picture from a stage production, which I think looks a bit more stimulating than the movie version.

Madeleine also appeared in "The Last Of The Mohicans," in which she is captured by the Huron war leader Magwa, and led into captivity with her sister and an English officer. When Magwa presents the captives to the Huron chief, the chief orders that Cora, Madeleine's character, be burned alive. Hawkeye (Daniel Day Lewis) crashes the party, negotiates with the chief, and rescues Cora.

Raika Juri is a tortured nun in FLAVIA THE HERETIC (1974)

Flavia (Florinda Bolkan) is indentured into a life as a nun by her father, Sir Richard. She is unhappy with her life and daydreams, whilst praying, of a warrior who she witnessed her father beheading as a young girl. One day a strange cult called the 'Tarantulas' arrive at the convent. They are -rather unwisely- admitted and wreak havoc, frenziedly writhing about wailing. One of the nuns (Raika Juri) is possessed with the same feverish ecstasy and rips her habit open, caressing her breasts whilst imagining a statue coming to life. When the cultists are finally expelled once more, the naughty nun is thrown into a cell to await the coming of the Bishop. The Bishop arrives and takes the nun away, much to Flavia's outrage. She sees the nun being tortured to death, at her father's behest. The poor nun is burned with molten lead, then her nipples are cut away.

Gemma Arterton in "The Disappearance of Alice Creed" (2009) - IMDB

Two criminals abduct the daughter of of a rich guy and hold her for ransom. They tie her to a bed and strip her for the full effect. It is only a short scene, but it is very powerful!

Some screenshots:

And a video: https://de.xhamster.com/videos/gemma-arterton-nude-the-dissapearance-of-alice-creed-1658220
(Warning: Do not watch past 2:45 min if you don't want the plot to be spoiled!)

I saw this movie recently was really suprised in a positive way. Despite a limited number of characters (3) and sets, the movie manages to create a dense athmosphere and an exciting plot with some unexpected twists. And the acting is really good, too! It also interesting, how the creators preferred images over dialogs to tell the plot. There are entire several minutes long scenes without a single spoken word.

And I like the idea of linking the IMDB entry! (if there is one)
That is a great idea! I'll try to figure out how to do that myself.
Gemma Arterton in "The Disappearance of Alice Creed"
I agree with you about the movie, it was well done, and Gemma did a great job of acting. That scene of her lying handcuffed, ball gagged and mostly naked is a classic. I don't think Meryl Streep could have done any better.
Heather Matarazzo in Hostel 2
I was really disappointed with the movie. Heather Matarazzo looks pretty good naked and hanging upside down, and I respect her for doing the scene herself; that's interesting, but she is the least attractive of the three friends who are kidnapped to be sold for torture. As I recall, the other two never even get naked, and their tortures were just a mess. What a waste.

Speaking of waste, I watched a horror movie that came out in 2018 called "Hell Of A Night." (Sorry, I would link to IMDB, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet.) I won't bother with the plot, except that Blake (Rachael Hevrin) has to deal with both a malignant ghost and the villainous boyfriend of her best friend. The villainous BF hangs her up AOH in a barn and starts to act nasty. The nastiest thing he does is obstruct our view of Rachael for a good bit of the scene. No, that's not right; the nastiest thing is that he strips off only her top, leaving her in bra and sweatpants. He gets distracted by the ghost and wonders off, allowing Blake to free herself. The first thing she does is arm herself with duct tape, so you know that some serious ass kicking is about to commence. The acting is poor at best, and the frustration level is high, given that Rachael Hevrin is quite attractive, and she is bound in one of my favorite positions, but manages to keep her naughty bits conveniently covered.

Here's a movie that did deliver the goods: "I Spit On Your Grave 2." Katie (Jemma Dallender) is abducted by some really vicious bastards and stripped, raped, and kept shackled to a post. That's round one. Round two, she escapes, and gets some payback.

She did the scene herself, naked (except for a small triangle patch), being suspended upside down by her ankles for about 8-10 minutes maximum. Before, she took special training (e.g. breathing techniques) to hold on that long.
The BIGGEST EVER wasted opportunity....no thanks to clever camera angles, you don't see anything to get over excited about..... :(

These are in the category 'mainstream movie', so, the camerawork often relies on suggesttion and brief shots. Unfortunately, movies are rarely made the way we would like to see them made.:(

I share your opinion about the movie itself, and the genre in general. The film itself was trash! Such bloody gore is not my thing, actually, but this scene stood out (until someone starts slicing).:eek:
