    The movie “She's Gotta Have It” was intresting in the fact that it unfolds the sexual life of a young woman who seems to be more “open-minded” than her sexual partners. She lives in this complicated web of relationships that are mostly based on sex and neither her or her “companions” appear to be satisfied with.— 57

    The scene in which Nola and her three guys Greer, Jamie and Mars are having the Thanksgiving dinner, their discotempt with each other is highly evident. First, the camera only films the guys talkng OR Nola talking. This represents a barrier between Nola and her lovers because she doesn't “give” herself to either one of them but at the same time gives a little of her to each one. For her, sex doesn't necessarily means intimacy or love. She likes sex and she likes them but she doesn't want to commit to them, she wants to have it all.

      Also in this scene we see the discontempt of the guys for having to share her while she just cares that they are arguing and ruining the dinner. Also, these shots represent the fact that she is looking directly at her three choices that she has, she doesnt believe in one man but she does believe in adding different characteristics of different men that appear to make up the man she would choose. In the shots where the three guys appear at the table, the rule of thirds can be applied which represents evenly her three choices. Greer is the one in the middle but this doesn't mean he is her favorite, on the contrary, it means he's the farthest away from her and her love.
