Movie "Awakenings" (無語問蒼天)

最近頗讀了幾本與大腦有關的書。這個禮拜我在讀的書是《讓成熟的大腦自由》。在這本書裏提到了"Awakenings" (有名爲《睡人》和《甦醒》兩個不同的中文譯本,遺憾的是我沒有找到電子版本)這本書,又提到這本書被拍成了一部同名電影,進而得知它還得了一個中文名字《無語問蒼天》。出於對腦科學的好奇,我今天一個人看了這部電影。它真的是蠻感人的一部影片,劇情很緊湊,沒有什麼費話和刻意,我很喜歡。另外,它足足有兩個小時長,如果你也想看的話,建議找一個相對比較完整的時間。

我是在這個 在線觀影 地方用電腦看的這部電影。

它讓我感受到腦科學的神奇和複雜,也讓我對一線的腦科學研究者產生了深深的敬意。我應該約 Eric 抽個時間再看一遍。

Don't look up

I watched this movie with Eric on 31-Dec-2021. I actually have watched it once by myself several days ago. I would say that it's a typical fast-paced modern movie. It tries to convey many things in two hours. Everyone can tell that it is an imaginary story, but it is sort of real on the other hand.

Personally, I think it is a good movie, this is why I watched it twice in a short time. But I don't like this type of movie very much. Unfortunately, we will see more and more similar movies in the future. The storytellers know what we, human beings want to watch, so most of them choose to put lots of fetching plots into a movie.

"Wind River" is a great movie

I watched the movie yesterday morning on my own. It's a moving movie, and it's great! The reason to choose this movie is this tweet. I always have the interest in the Indian people in America. They are kind of our Asian's relatives, aren't they?

Three things made me love this movie.

  • The plot, no preachment, just a story.
  • The hunter, he is a great father!
  • The mountains and the snow everywhere.

Indian people deserve a better treatment.

Eric and I watched the film tonight. He said it's so so. Obviously, he didn't see the profound meaning in the film. That's ok, after all, he is only 14 years old. I love this film. It always reminds people to question your current situation, and encourages people to get a change.

Last Christmas

A friend on twitter recommended this film, and I watched it tonight. It was a moving movie, and I love it!

Last Christmas

Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away (you gave it away)
This year, to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special (special)
Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance, but you still catch my eye
Tell me baby, do you recognize me?
Well, it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me
"Merry Christmas" I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying "I love you", I meant it
Now I know what a fool I've been
But if you kissed me now, I know you'd fool me again
Last Christmas I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away (you gave it away)
This year, to save me from tears
I'll…
