How Erotic Actually Is Pedro Pascal And Ethan Hawke’s ‘Strange Way of Life’?

Strange Way Of Life

The new queer Western short film ‘Strange Way of Life’ is gaining waves as it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17. With its director Pedro Almodóvar describing the film as a response to ‘Brokeback Mountain’, the question now is, how erotic can ‘Strange Way of Life’ get?

The short answer is, it is erotic but not explicit. It is not as graphic, with the exception perhaps of Pascal’s short exposure of his butt, but it shows a lot of tender, emotional, and intimate scenes.

‘Strange Way of Life’ tells the story of two men, Silva (Pascal) and Sheriff Jake (Hawke), who meet again after 25 years. Jake then tells Silva that there is more to their reunion than just revisiting their friendship. Almodóvar described it as “a queer western in the sense that there are two men, and they love each other, and they behave in that situation in an opposite way.”

Ahead of its Cannes premiere, Almodóvar talked about the sexual relationship between Pedro Pascal and Ethan Hawke’s characters. He said that the film is “full of these moments that are erotic without being explicit sexually or having to do with any kind of physical nakedness.” He also said that “there’s a certain intensity, these pauses, that are very erotic and carnal for me.”

The actors also shared their thoughts about the intimate scenes. “I think there’s a disarming and playful sexiness to everything Pedro does,” he said in an interview with Indiewire, “So it’s exciting to step into that world. It also helped to have a scene partner as good as Ethan.”

Ethan, on the other hand, laughed off the connotations of his bedroom scene. “I did a play in 1991 where Steve Zahn and I made out so, you know, I’ve always been game for a good time,” he said.
