Bae Doona – AKA Du-Na Bae, AKA Bae Doo-Na, AKA any other transliteration you can make from Korean to Latin – makes her Hollywood debut in the best was possible. Not only does she supply two whole nude scenes to her first stateside feature, but said feature also happens to be the three hour epic, Cloud Atlas. Written and directed by the Wachowskis of Matrix fame, this I feel is their most ambitious title to date, despite an oddly lukewarm reception by critics.
Korean beauty Bae Doona plays the role of Sonmi-451, a genetically engineered clone who breaks out of her life of servitude and leads what is implied to be a global revolution for freedom. Although, the aftermath seems to be an apocalyptic wasteland, so one could question the benefit of it all. She gets her tits out twice, though, so all is forgiven. The first nude scene is a brief look at the slave/clone/waitresses’ morning routine, which has them going through a communal shower before collecting their clothes. The second nude scene consists of Bae Doona having sex with Jim Sturgess in yellowface, accompanied by a David Mitchell monologue, which is, of course, always a great masturbation aid.
In fact, the movie is full of actors in cross-racial and cross-gender roles. And I have to give mad props to the makeup folks, because it didn’t come off nearly as comical and absurd as it does in every other film that’s tried it. So go buy Cloud Atlas. It truly is an amazing piece of modern art. Until then, here are the two nude scenes with Bae Doona, capped in 1080p from the blu-ray.
