The Coldest Weapon of All

10. March 2013 10:50 by m | 0 Comments

Sex, violence and women are cornerstones of James Bond films. The Bond girl villain encapsulates all these elements but is subject to changing depictions to suit the requirements of Bond’s character. With reference to film noir femmes fatales, Vesper Lynd is connected to the successful narrative restarting of the franchise.
