From a Freudian perspective the cultural symbolism and the theme of James Bond 007’s celebration of the female forms is created through of the scenic atmosphere in the James Bond 007 series. Allowing the audience to engage in voyeuristic fantasies of “swinging 60’s” woman dancing in an erotic fashion. The utilization of seductive woman as a sexual metaphor is a theme repeated during the James Bond film series. From the Dr No film to the betrayal of Bond’s lover and unlikely ally and lover in the film Quantum Solace.
Daniel Craig stars in the 23rd Bond film Skyfall as the legendary secret British agent Bond, whose espionage adventures see him traversing across the far east, sailing the seven seas, engaging in dynamic adventures underground, in the subway and undersea.
