Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


From Mr. Ma’s point of view, Atlantic City is like a Rising Third World City, such as Japan in the 1970s, South Korea in the 1980s, Taiwan in the 1990s, and now the mainland. People run around in a materialistic society to earn money. They live in both a sense of instability and a sense of happiness hit by money. At present, Chinese people may feel much better than Americans who come to see this film again.

In other words, although Atlantic City is known as the world’s four largest gambling cities, it is just stained with the light of DC backed by New York and Philadelphia. Up to now, it has not developed much. There are only 40000 people in the city, and there is far less traffic outside the city than Vegas. If it weren’t for the trouble of people from the east bank to go to the desert of Nevada, Atlantic City was just a rural town with a powerful name. The scenery was particularly good. No wonder gambling cities seized the pit on the front line of the sea.

Looking back, with the dream of catching up with and surpassing Vegas, Atlantic City gave many people who had no chance in Vegas a hope to return to the battlefield, just like Lancaster and Sarandon in the film. Mr. Ma still likes to use the techniques of the new wave to include the relationship between several people in a large lens (which Wang Jiawei and mitan especially like to use later). From the beginning, the gangster and his wife, the gangster and his wife, the old man and his wife, the gangster and the old man, the old man and the old woman, the old woman and his wife and sister, this shaky story starts from the bombing of the old building, trying to imitate a rondo like rhythm. Everyone seems to run for their own interests, and everyone seems to retain a piece of hope in their heart, at the mercy of fate, Finally, we have to end the demolition building under the sledgehammer. Lancaster and Sarandon have played a considerable level, especially the former.

The most interesting thing is Lancaster’s state of mind. At first, he was a peeper, then a graceful old man, then an accomplice, and then I talked about juvenile mania. Like all gangster films of that era, he came for money, left, hugged women and ran away freely. Only in the end, when women have their own ideas, the old man understands that drunkenness is one thing, and the real waiting is another. He has to have much feelings and see through everything to face betrayal so calmly, easily give a young woman a step and let her leave with a share of money. Mo, the old lady holding the old man’s hand is walking on the streets along the Atlantic Ocean. It’s hard for me to think of the marginalized life described before, dirty bedroom, noisy bar, nervous casino, murder in the garage, drugs and pistols. At the moment, I only see a pair of old people after the storm, as if they had lived a young life and walked out of an exciting life in their twilight years.

Mahler is really interesting. With such a shot, his fatalistic sadness about crime from the elevator to the gallows is not important. What matters is a romance in which old trees bloom in a vibrant new city, just like what is said in the film:

So, the point is still love.
