A half-naked man & woman kiss and go under a blanket, moaning is briefly heard. The man later says that the sex was fun.


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


After thinking about it, I’d better put this film review under the name of “bolt rocket”. After all, I like this one best – of course, I never know how to write it well when I write a paper. Picking bones in eggs is what I’m good at.

theme

Wes Anderson often places his movie characters in a derailment in his disordered life, which constitutes a consistent theme similar to “adventure” in his videos. Whether it’s the senseless theft of three young people in bottled rocket or the setting sail for revenge and encountering pirates in life sea, of course, the most typical is through Darjeeling in the name of exploration, Once I talked with the fox father who had lived a normal and prosperous life about the mass escape caused by the juvenile crazy theft (the great fox father). Without exception, they stubbornly toss around, choose to escape independently, and go further and further in their own extraneous branches. However, when they think of the same exploration theme in Herzog’s films and the strong pioneering will when exploring the ownerless land, they will find that the characters in Wes Anderson have a typical postmodern context, It’s the middle class’s exclusive character of being full and having nothing to look for. After the “adventure” ended, they decided to return to their original life with their memories of the derailed life. After calming the agitation, they were even more normal and mainstream. After dignan tried the “big thief life”, he went to prison safely and obeyed the punishment. The father and son he just met, the three brothers after the unusual trip to India The successful escaped foxes have returned to a peaceful family atmosphere.

style

Style is a formal system. Close up, swing motion of the camera in the long shot and slow shot processing at critical moments, gorgeous colors and bright light, keen on the use of rural folk songs and early rock music elements, etc. Wes Anderson’s video has very recognizable skills in lens motion, color, light, framing, sound and editing. However, the climax of “exploration” and “return” is often the scene that the director pays most attention to stylization.

The exploration of mortals out of the track of normal life is the most common theme in Wes Anderson films, and the most heroic behavior at the moment of distress is also the scene deliberately portrayed by the director. Wes Anderson doesn’t pursue intense and exciting fighting scenes. It is close to the heroic explosion experience of narcissism. Like the name of the debut work of “bottle rocket”, Wes Anderson is eye-catching but short-lived. It even has a little cottage feeling. It can’t tell whether it is real or self imagination or self imagination in the eyes of others.

The time to return home at the end of the adventure – another scene that is quite habitually stylized. When the character ends his adventure and wants to return to life (or just a psychological return), the pure music of the voice separates his every move from this moment. With one of the hallowed marks, the slow lens magnifies the character’s complex emotions and leads the story to the conclusion. It is the reluctance to bid farewell to the risk and heroic dream, the relief and loss on the right track, as well as the family relationship Adjustment and reconfirmation of friend relationship. At the end of the bottled rocket, dignan, who was arrested by mistake, went to prison, and the small group disappeared naturally – professional thieves went to continue their career, and the normal middle-class children in adolescence returned to normal. Across the prison fence, dignan told visiting Bob his escape plan, but after seeing Bob’s surprised look, he returned to the team at the end of the lookout. The melodic soundtrack sounded. In the slow camera, dignan’s face turned from a close-up to a panoramic view, capturing the memorable Nostalgia on his face Ridicule and arrogance – although I think some comments will be comparable to the end of “four hundred strikes”, it really impressed me. These middle-class boys naturally don’t care about tens of thousands of yuan of piano stolen money and prison. Their full meaning is realized in “we did it”. After all, dignan also experienced a heroic dream of sacrificing himself to others when he let his companions go first and bear the stupid consequences. Imagining or creating stimulation in a mediocre life to challenge social morality to show yourself clearly points to a kind of adolescent values.

And ideology

It may be an attempt to use the “generation consciousness” and “class consciousness” in cultural research to name the character relationship, theme and ideology behind Wes Anderson’s films. In the 1960s, the concept of youth as the vanguard of social change and generation change as the driving force of change became rampant, obscuring the concept of class struggle in the past. Due to the close relationship with youth groups, all kinds of subcultures are also marked as a symbol competition and confrontation with the mainstream. In this sense, contemporary American independent films have subculture meaning to a considerable extent: the filmmakers and audiences of these videos are often the younger generation, who oppose the mainstream style and connotation represented by Hollywood in terms of appeal. However, the ghost of Marx, which has long been obscured by generational consciousness, still exists. Do Henry, dignan, Anthony and Bob belong to the same class. We can’t ignore that the endings of Wes Anderson’s films are quite warm. He used family cohesion to cover the adhesion that they belong to the middle class. The rebellious boys finally reconciled with their parents; And those fathers who fled for a while also returned to their families and regained respect (some commentators call it delayed adolescence). On the issue of the son generation and the father generation competing for a woman, it is the classmate’s father in “Youth” who defeated Max’s lack of care. In “sea of life”, it is the father Steve. It is absurd. The toss in the name of “exploration to find yourself” seems more suitable to be called a middle-class disease.

In the United States, “middle class” specifically refers to families with an annual income of $25000 ~ 100000. This class accounts for about 80% of the total population of the United States. They are considered to be the main body of American society, the symbol of American developed capitalism and the main factor of social stability. The middle class is the main body of creating and consuming American mass culture, and its mainstream and core values naturally start from the three identity related factors of “middle class”, “white” and “male”. In an article entitled La camera Crayola: Authorship comes of age in the cinema of Wes Anderson, In the study of Anderson’s early films, it is pointed out: “dignan’s behavior steps not from a desire to achieve personal glory, but from a humbler, much sadder, and ultimately acceptable desire to be a part (Albert the central part) of something. This idea,which runs through the center of Anderson’s films,also spills over into the young director’s public image.”—— Even though contemporary American independent films emphasize the sharp opposition with Hollywood, it is at most a struggle for symbolic power within the mainstream. It is uniformly regulated under the values of the middle class – perhaps it can be seen more clearly. Compared with the relationship between mainstream culture and subculture in a larger scope, subculture and counterculture have strong political demands, Subculture exists under the mainstream culture, which needs to be incorporated, is willing to be incorporated, and can be incorporated.

Therefore, the mainstream tendency of Anderson and other independent films is not “your money is working again this time”. The economic factors are only one aspect, and the key is that they are basically consistent in core values. Moreover, as an “other”, Anderson is really American.
