1998上映的《谋杀绿脚趾》影评:Dead Flowers

来源:互联网作者:隔壁小王757关注

Despite its black-humour appearance, the lighthearted mockery tone and the deliberate vulgarity in dialogues, I really see The Big Lebowski as a conscious denial and rejection of the American post-war identity.At the beginning of the film, the unknown narrator states that the story takes place in the 90s when the Iraq War goes on overseas of the US. Neither the importance of this time frame nor the identity of the narrator is revealed to the audience, and as the film unfolds, it becomes clear that these information is in fact irrelevant. The Iraq War background is no more crucial to the development of the story than the random old man the Dude met in the bowling stadium, who only reveals himself to be the narrator in the very end.The film saturates American reality to an extent, through its portrayal of non-black/white racial and cultural stereotypes and conflicts, as well as superficial class distinctions. It presents caricature-like characters, such as the rich and merciless Lebowski, the rebellious and promiscuous teenager Bunny, the educated and artsy feminist Maude, the Latino child sex-offender, and the German nihilists--who are called antisemitic and effectivelyNazisby Walter, who insists on being a Jew. However, the film refuses to attribute these characteristics to the post-war or indeed the Iraq War factor. The very act of indicating the time frame of the narrative is in fact, the act of un-establishing the potential association between the two, and refusing these characters asproducts of their time .The most straightforward evidence is Walter and his obsessive need to relate everything to the Vietnam war. As the Dude so rightly said:Why the fuck does anything have to do with Vietnam?Walter keeps reminiscing the Vietnam war and constantly suggests its effects in current American society, but the examples he chooses are so hilariously irrelevant--such as him shouting in a diner and asked to leave--that they become a self-conscious mockery of the way in which Americans try to define their reality by diagnosing it as post-war syndromes. When Walter explains to the Dude that he converted to Judaism after his marriage with his Jewish wife whom he divorced 5 years ago, the Dude points out to Walter that he isliving in the fucking past . This can be seen as representative of a post-war stubbornness to dwell in memories and a reluctance to move on.In this light, the end-title song Dead Flowers may well be a reference to the peace-advocatingflower childrenof the 60s during the Vietnam war. The flowers are dead and gone; life goes on.

  • 文镜

    剧情有点乱,不过很好玩儿,好几处都很有意思

  • 正义与微笑

    怪不得不想,这种镜头和风格真牛逼,怎么就那么熟悉,哦豁,老无所依!Joel真牛逼

  • No good

    3.5星…看不懂.多的0.5星给断片的那段想象.

  • 玛卡瑞纳

    督哥才是他妈的虚无主义吧!!

  • 鸟不拉屎大王

    dope 翻译成督爷 我也是服了

  • 一只小狗子

    看完后很自然的有了看完老无所依后的感受,然后突然想到哦原来出处是一样的. 一千个观众有一千个哈姆雷特用在此处再合适不过了,你能看到什么完全取决于你观影时的态度和你的脑回路. 如果我说我此刻什么感受都没有是不是显得我思想觉悟很低🤫

  • 李光头

    全片不是很有趣啊...

  • 光头

    p.s. John Goodman ≈ Sakari Kuosmanen(《希望的另一面》男主角)≈ 王砚辉?

  • 天空の村

    蛮搞笑,但也仅仅是搞笑而已,掺杂了太多创作人员自己的趣味。也有对越战创伤的反思,只是以喜剧的形式表现出来力度不够大。松散感太明显了,结尾结束得匆忙,以至于看完觉得有点莫名其妙

  • 跳出框的鱼

    我缓慢打出一个问号 虽然剧情上都能懂大部分黑色幽默也能看出来但是…嗯…改天我再看一遍!

  • Skyisea

    感觉特别的电影,舒服而有底线,纪实却又荒诞,充满想象力的表达和呈现胖懂的人看到心里。

  • 嗯……

    感觉有好多地方应该是讽刺 生活在底层的人也很精彩也不是平庸的 沃尔特好可爱,有这样的朋友真好 “你最近怎么了”“你知道的还是那样,有起有伏”

    人啊,没什么迈得过去的坎~
