Perhaps the most well-remembered feature of Pinocchio is that whenever he tells a lie his nose grows and it is the same curse for Pic. As Pic’s power increases in the upper world, so too do his lies and nose. But, unlike the original, Pic’s long nose is celebrated with other characters wearing replicas. At the peak of Pic’s power and celebrity, the nose becomes sexual organ, used as phallus in a rape scene. Symbolically then, the lies are linked to a predatory male power. In Maclean’s own words, “We have become desensitized by the prevalence of misogynistic imagery in contemporary culture and my way of addressing this is to confront it in a direct and visceral way.” Whilst I don’t dispute that we have become desensitized to misogynistic imagery, I question whether merely showing a scene of sexual assault Maclean is in fact confronting it ‘in a direct and visceral way’. Scenes of rape have become prevalent in current culture; common in TV shows and films used primarily for shock value. In showing us violent assault do we confront it? If our media is saturated with violent sexual assault anyway, does this particular scene help us to confront it in any different way? Given that Pic has reached the peak of celebrity and the power that comes with that, the scene does point to the predatory conduct of powerful men, much of which has been reported over this year. However, as the scene seems to have little impact on the rest of the storyline (other than showing Pic abusing his power) I question whether it has any other impact than that of ‘shock value’. So it doesn’t do anything to help our understanding of the issue of sexual violence, or call us to any action in order to prevent it.
