Jan – Mar & HKIFF 2016

HKIFF 2016, in priority: 岡仁波齊 (Paths of the Soul) 岡仁波齊是西藏聖山,電影紀實虛構混集,紀錄同村一行十一人磕長頭(好像花了8-9個月)到拉薩朝聖之旅。畫面瑰麗意料之內,秒秒都感受到humanity才叫人動容。他們的世界裡,時間不存在。車子壞了,男男女女輪流在公路上徒手推車,推了幾十米,停下,理所當然地往後走回幾十米磕長頭,補回那段路。這一幕,我簡直覺得匪夷所思。時間,不過是現代人劃下來規限自己生活的法則;生老病死,只是日常。近5年最喜歡的電影之一。 熱鬥黑馬 (Dark Horse) 紀錄英國工人階層集資養馬,挑戰被上流貴族壟斷的賽馬行業。正面講賽馬,側面講英倫工業城鎮的掙扎,中老年人的團結與寄託,看到很多愛。正如主角說,”to them it is industry, to us it is family”。(看到很多賽馬術語我都明白,很沾沾⋯⋯ 哈哈) 紐約巴別塔(In Jackson Heights) 三個多小時的社區地圖,紀錄紐約Jackson Heights文化大熔爐的變天,看人看社會都精彩。電影節選映,以紐約喻香港乎。 龍吟傳說 (A Dragon Arrives!) 有驚喜的伊朗電影,雖然型過籠連故事都講唔掂,但劉青雲話斎,個男主角靚仔到咁,乜都得啦。 驚天動地搶新聞 (Thank You for Bombing) 打仗暴動,死人塌樓,記者腎上腺素直線標升。傳媒有病,傳媒仆街,電影把這極端一面再講一遍。 … Continue reading

March/ April Films

我是越來越不喜歡看電影還是越來越與時代脫節了,現在只會喜歡簡單直接地說好一個故事的電影,所以這兩個月的電影我超愛The Grand Budapest Hotel 及The Lunchbox,而The Grand Budapest Hotel更是上網看看它的website與fan art 已經是嘗心樂事。電影節看的Inside Llewyn Davis、阿爾及利亞電影The Rooftops和紀錄片The Square 都非常不錯,慶幸今年挑了很少電影,但都是自己喜歡的。至於那堆得獎電影、金句電影、影評電影、話題電影,我都看不懂、覺得很難看、看到很想睡、看完忘記了,排名不分先後:魔警、白日焰火、那夜凌晨,我坐上了旺角开往大埔的红VAN、Nymphomaniac、The Amazing Spider-Man 2、The Broken Circle Breakdown(這套是OK的,但又不至於會推荐給朋友。)
