"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…

观影 灰猎犬号 "GREY HOUND"

本周二?晚间和 Eric 在看tv上慕名看了电影 GREY HOUND。有中文字幕,顺便练练英语听力。怎么说呢,可能是期望值太高的原因,并未感觉到这个片子有特别出彩的地方。想吐槽的地方倒有几个。

  1. 整个片子舰长的戏份多得惊人了。简直是中国版劳模一个。给他做饭也不吃。动不动你们退下我来指挥。
  2. 短时间整三次德军潜艇使用船队通讯通道恐吓船队的桥段。
  3. 潜艇几次近距离浮上来当靶子。

Eric 倒觉得这个片子蛮不错的,他觉得很真实。那我也说说它好的地方吧

  1. 蛮惊险的,几次靠舰艇快速转向成功躲开鱼雷攻击。
  2. 舰长心理活动刻划比较真实,要救人,又要护船队。
  3. 敌狼头潜艇确实很聪明,有勇有谋。

和老战一起看的这部电影,而且是分了两天才看完。我在豆瓣上翻到这个片子评分比较高,老战也说这个片子不错。于是就翻了它的牌子。

开场我并不怎么喜欢这个电影。那像监狱一样的高中校园,我听说过,没经历过,但从未喜欢过。我讨厌一切压制。看看电影里的高中校园,你就知道,在中国,精神病人人群,特别是被迫害妄想症人群是如此之多,并非偶然。我惊讶这个片子竟然能通过审查允许上映。它充分展示了在中国大陆人群中那普遍存在的胆小怕事和冷漠无情。

胡小蝶是勇敢的。那决绝的一跃,是对这个社会最坚决的抗议。在整个片子里她只有几个镜头,但她在我的心里绝不是配角,正因为如此,我选了以她为主题的这张海报做为题图。

看到中途,我预感到这片子可能是个悲剧片,小北有可能会挂。正好同学也赶着回家接孩子,就中止观看了这个影片。 一周后老战又来,我问他那电影你看完了没,他说没有,于是我们就接茬看完了这部电影。后半部分远比上半部分精彩,这片子评分高是有理由的。

中国电影,取之生活高于生活,仿佛是一条必须遵守的铁律。基于这条铁律,逻辑有些硬伤各方都是能够接受的。我认为整体这片子属于治愈系,虽然社会已经这么坏了,但好人最后还是赢了,生活还得继续,含着眼泪也要活下去。

警察胜,大团圆的结局可能是过审的需要,也可能是导演自己的追求。我不去猜。

我只希望,看了这个片子的年轻人里,能帮到多几个同学下定出国念书的决心。这不一定是导演的目标,但我自己认为就这个目标来说,它做到了。

谁说人吃人的社会只存在于鲁迅的小说里?

BTW,如果你也关注校园霸凌这个话题,圣人温森特「St Vincent」值得一看。
