Topic: Your thoughts on the Sound Torture in John Gardner's Licence Renewed?
I'd like to ask you for your thoughts on the sound torture scene in John Gardner's Licence Renewed (1981)? In the scene in question the villain Dr Anton Murik and his assistant Mary-Jane Mashkin apply white noise to Bond's ears in a white tiled torture chamber.
What did you think of it?
Have you any praise for it or criticisms of it?
Was it too tame (as some commentators have said) or something refreshingly different?
How would you rank it alongside the other torture scenes by Ian Fleming, Kingsley Amis and John Gardner himself?
As always, I'd love to hear from you!
