Kiss me, stupid

Joel Meyerowitz, New York's New Years Eve (1965)

Last week I saw a couple of street cleaners kissing passionately. They looked sort of indigenous, and so I got impressed, since I hadn't any recollection of Mexican natives kissing that way. It seemed to me a bit Hollywoodesque, some sort of foreign ("Occidental") stuff, rather than genuine indigenous.

I started perusing this issue, when I found this video with the same theory, but regarding Africans. It's worth watching.
