As in “Dr. No”, the great Scottish actor Sean Connery played the role of 007 in “Gold Finger” In the final film, Bond discovers a gold tycoon’s plot to raid Fort Knox and does everything he can to stop him (and, of course, save the world in the process). But how Cary Fukunagabest known for directing the first season of the hit HBO show True Detective, as well as the first 2020s Bond film No Time to Die, notes, “Essentially, Sean Connery’s character rapes a woman” (according to IndieWire). Fukunaga emphasizes that such a sequence is simply unacceptable today.

It really isn’t. “Goldfinger” is barn scene where Bond Connery and Pussy Galore (Honor Blackman) start fighting after Galore rejects Bond’s advances. She’s just not interested. Then, after a brief but intense fight – Bond even throws Galore over his shoulder into the hay – he climbs on top of the woman and forces her to kiss him, pinning her to the ground. He does it all confidently and without remorse, despite her repeated protests. Consent is not a code phrase to be deciphered, and it’s clear that she never offers it in that juvenile scene, which essentially condones the attack.
