You okay in there?

Relax.

Well, it's just...

I've never done anything

like this before.

Like what?

Whatever it is we're doing.

What are we doing?

I don't know.

L- I just, I never met

anyone like you before.

What do you want?

Tell me what you want.

If you don't tell me,

I'll be forced to improvise

and who knows

what will happen then.

So...

what is it?

What do you want?

Could I maybe get

a glass of water?

No.

Yeah.

- Come here.

- Hold on.

Whoa, whoa.

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

What kind of game is this?

- A really, really fun game.

- Yeah?

- Come here.

- Hold on.

Hold on.

Whoa, whoa. What are you doing?

No, no, come on.

- Do you know what this is?

- What are you doing?

No, no, no.

Don't play with that.

- These are really fun.

- Whoa, whoa, hey.

- Come on, come on.

- No, you come on.

God.

It's gonna be fun, I promise.

Whoa.

Where you going?

Come back. Come here.

What are you doing?

Hey, where'd you go? Come back.

Come back. Where'd you go?

Here, why don't you

take off the cuffs?

Whoa, whoa. What was that?

What was what?

"Aida" walks a fine line

between post-feminist critique

and blatant objectification.

Images of schoolgirls commonly

associated with innocence,

perfection, and conformity

in Japanese pop culture

are twisted and inverted.

Severed limbs and shackles

play in stark contrast

to crisp school uniforms

and a pervading sense

of serene and subservient calm.

Women are depicted as playthings,

or even as pets.

Now, in his series,

"Edible Artificial Girls,"

he shows teenage girls

as a pure commodity.

A snack food for men.

But are these images

a rejection of misogyny

or a celebration of perversions

that are found

in male-dominated art

throughout the world?

Hey.

Did you get my text?

What?

Wow. Okay.

Hey, you're still coming

to The Cave tonight, right?

Shit.

- I totally forgot.

- What do you mean?

I'm sorry. I made plans.

- But you promised me.

- I know.

And my friend Tyler is playing

and I told him you were coming.

Why? You know

I have a boyfriend.

Terry's not a boyfriend.

He's like, 45 years old

and he's married, Shae.

He's 35 and they're separated.

You need to be careful.

The guy's, like,

having a midlife crisis.

No, he's not.

All right, I'll stop pushing.

But I still want you

to come to the party.

- I told you, we have plans.

- What are you guys doing?

We're gonna go see

the Martin McDonagh play

and then we're going

to the Hamptons for the weekend.

All right, f*ck the party.

Can I come with you?

No?

No.

Have fun this weekend

and I'll see you on Monday.

All right.

- Bye, girl.

- Bye.

- Have fun in the Hamptons.

- I'll try.

Come here, Calvin.

Come here.

Over here, silly.

There it is.

What's the matter?

Did something happen?

I can't see you anymore.

Sarah and I are gonna

try and work things out.

What do you mean?

I'm so sorry, Shae.

But I've got to think about

what's best for Celice.

Celice?

My daughter.

You have a daughter.

She's three.

You never told me

you had a daughter.

Well, it didn't seem

to matter at the time.

Shae, come on.

You're a beautiful

and intelligent girl, Shae.

What we've had together

has been amazing.

But we can't sustain it.

There's a million guys

out there your age

who'd kill

to be your boyfriend.

Hi.

Come on, Gus.

What are you doing? Let's go.

You think it's in my head.

You think I'm crazy.

- It's not.

- She's just jealous.

See ya, Jim.

That'll be 28.

Do you wanna keep it open?

What can I get you?

Large Mexican Cosmo...

and your digits.

That'll be $82.

So many girls...
