You can see the main actress in her underwear.
We see a couple, under a sheet laying in bed after sex. The woman moves around and a lot of her left breast (nipple is hidden by man’s chest) is seen, very briefly.


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


If someone asks me to recommend a good science fiction film, “2001: Space Odyssey” will undoubtedly be the first on the list, and then I will not hesitate to report the following list: 13th floor, blade runner, Solaris, and even exist Z. But there is a film in my heart that has been hesitant and uncertain about its “attributes”. It is so inspiring, but the obvious defects are unforgettable. The more I watch it, the more “dissatisfaction” intensifies. This is the American director Robert zemikis after the great success of Forrest Gump, The science fiction film contact, which wanted to make further efforts to the next city.

Recently, I reread the “Space Odyssey” trilogy. Many chapters remind me of this film. For example, what David Bowman saw through the “star gate” after driving to Blackstone in the separation module is so similar to the star travel “unconfirmed” by female scientist Ellie in contact with the future. The first contact between alien life and them, even the idea is the same: copy a copy of the environment of human habits, so that this contact is not so shocking and easy to accept. In 2001, Bowman was greeted by an ordinary hotel suite on earth, where he quickly experienced birth, old age and death and became a “star child”; In the yearn day and night, Allie as like as two peas of the childhood, and came to the coast of Puna cola, and walked to her as a representative of the wisdom of outer space, was the father who missed her and died early. This image, which has been answered in the film, is a kind imitation downloaded and carried out by alien life from her dreams and consciousness. This kind of welcome ceremony is really too “considerate”, which makes people feel that the so-called alien life is almost a natural psychologist, who takes great pains to contact. The conversation between father and daughter was very interesting. The answer of “father” was ambiguous about who built the space-time machine sent Ellie, suggesting the existence of higher intelligent life. They just found these relics – just like Bowman saw the abandoned space transfer station in 2001 – and learned to make good use of them. The universe is vast and life is small, so contact is particularly precious. With the help of extraterrestrial wisdom, mankind has taken the first step, and there is still a long way to go in the future.

Many similarities do not mean that “touch the future” is an extension of “2001: a Space Odyssey”. Their “texture” is quite different: 2001 is a calm and magnificent starry epic written by Kubrick and Arthur Clark; Touching the future is Ellie’s lonely, stubborn and confused persistence. People who like this film are not so much attracted by Ellie’s obsessive career as infected by her persistent faith. Listening is the lost survival instinct and telepathy of most of us. Impetuosity is everywhere, and even invades the academic community. The “practical school” represented by tutor Ellie is an example. In Fortress Besieged, Mr. Qian Zhongshu joked vividly about this kind of old scientists who regard the scientific community as a workplace: “the position of the word” old “is very difficult. It can describe science and scientists. Unfortunately, scientists are different from science; scientists are like wine, the older they are, the more valuable they are, while science is like women, and they are worthless when they are old.” In order to “preserve the value”, the old man in the film can be described as a bold old face. First, he cancelled Ellie’s unrealistic project funds, “which is tantamount to professional suicide”, and then made a horizontal bar after Ellie’s research made a breakthrough, becoming the first passenger of the new aircraft. However, we cannot say that he has a despicable personality and lacks basic scientific literacy. He has repeatedly advised Ellie to be practical and for her good. As one of the people who have a say in the allocation of national scientific research funds, he must consider the return on investment, not just by interest. After all, this is taxpayers’ money, which should be used by the people. It is undoubtedly a great waste of money to invest in slim projects that do not see any hope. The United States has always been a pragmatic country, with compromise tolerance and even advocacy attitude towards idealism, which is one of the reasons why it has always been in the lead in science and technology. Money, as an “original sin”, needs to be washed away. Therefore, the rich in society are keen to support scientific projects, establish institutions such as Princeton Institute of higher research, and provide gifted scientists with a “hotel for the rest of the wise”, waiting for the spark of human thought to bloom. Ellie ran into a wall everywhere to raise research funds. Fortunately, she met Hayden, a monopoly industrial giant and an arbitrary manipulator of hundreds of millions of funds, but she had an immortal scientific dream and broad ideas. In a sense, he and Ellie achieved each other. Idealism is as high as a temple, but we can’t help eating fireworks.

To a certain extent, science fiction inevitably involves the relationship between science and religion. It can even be said that a good science fiction is a novel that better answers the relationship between the two. On the one hand, the rapid development of science and technology constantly challenges the authority of the original concept of “God”; On the other hand, no matter how science and technology develops, as long as the limit of the speed of light does not break through, mankind is always in awe and helpless in front of the vast universe. Contact the future is no exception. In an interview with Premiere Magazine, Carl Sagan, This answers the American “alien complex”: “the problem of alien life is one of the most profound philosophical and scientific problems imaginable. It has an insight into our own position in the universe. Not only that, it is also an excellent mirror that often reflects our hopes and fears in a quite religious way.” The discussion in the original work is intensified in the film and has become the center of the plot development. The theologian Peng Ma is the key figure set up for this center, and I just feel that he wanted to be Xiao He, but lost to Xiao He. His excessive efforts led to the far fetched questioning of Peng Ma and the religion behind him. The close relationship between him and Ellie symbolizes the contradiction and unity of religion and science, which is simply artificial, It dispels the natural beauty of an emotion. Of course, this can only represent my personal subjective opinion. Maybe I can’t appreciate Matthew McConaughey’s performance. I can’t understand where his signature “big tongue” voice is sexy, and I don’t believe that Ellie played by Judy foster will “surrender” to such shallow sexuality.

Despite these subjective prejudices, the role of Peng MA in “ten gongs and nine gongs” in the film is also confusing. Even if he is the president’s religious adviser, the conference on the interpretation of information from alien life is also a very professional scientific discussion, which can not be directed by a layman. His criticism of Ellie’s lack of faith is very narrow, which has dragged down the whole film and made it an advocate of American values, rather than the vision of the whole mankind looking up at the stars. If you don’t believe God, you will be easily labeled as having no “faith”, there will be more people without faith in the world. Obviously, Ellie has her own belief. Her belief is to listen and pursue the intelligent life in space. In the film, the two had such a confrontation on the issue of faith:

Ellie: do you know OKAN’s reductionism?

Peng Ma: I don’t know.

Ellie: that is to say, the simplest explanation is often correct. Consider which of the following two situations is more likely: God created us without giving us any evidence of existence; Or does God not exist at all? We created God so that we don’t feel so lonely and small?

Puma: do you love your father? Then prove it.

Ellie:

Many years ago, it seemed that she was hypnotized and persuaded by puma like Ellie. This time, I felt offended, that is, my logical thinking ability was ridiculed. Obviously, puma stealthily changed her concept here. Ellie can’t prove her love for her father. There is no evidence of the existence of God. It’s not one thing at all. She can’t deduce one from another. Ellie’s father did exist, leaving countless evidence and memories. It is these that make Ellie’s memory and love for her father indelible. Ironically, Ellie, who experienced a “space travel” in people’s eyes, also faced the same dilemma at the hearing: she could not prove it. So she said a very “religious” excuse: “I can’t prove it or even explain it, but I know it’s true, about the universe and fantasy. As human beings, how small and insignificant we are, but at the same time, how valuable our existence is. We must live in awe and fear an existence greater than us. Because we are not alone.”

On the surface, the fact finally “educated” Ellie and made her reconcile with religion. Peng Ma, who had major differences with her in faith, understood her best and firmly believed in her. In fact, there is a logical problem of changing concepts:

Step 1: God created us without giving us any evidence of existence;

Step 2: Ellie’s space travel cannot be proved, but it does exist;

Step 3: come to the conclusion that God does exist.

Logical reasoning can prove that God can also calm God. “God is omnipotent. Whether he can create a stone that he can’t move himself” is the most troublesome problem for believers in all ages. So logic can’t explain God. You just need to believe. Science always needs to solve the problem of “the first push”: is the big bang purposeful or accidental? In the final analysis, both religion and science are questioning the ultimate truth. In the final analysis, the word “meaning” – the meaning of human existence and the meaning of the evolution of the universe. In the “ignorant age” when human ability is still weak, the best religion belongs to religion and science belongs to science.

Imagine that if there were omniscient and omnipotent gods who dominated the fate of the universe, how would they treat a grain of sand in the number of sands in the Ganges river? All the existing religions on earth are too arrogant to think that “God” cares about us, which Arthur Clark satirized in his short story star. Without pioneering ideas (like Hayden, the mysterious figure in the film), the human body can get rid of the shackles of gravity, and the soul can’t get rid of it – even if alien wisdom opens the door of time and space to you. In contrast, Asimov’s perfect combination of religion and Science in the last question is very possible, but there is a prerequisite: you must give up the concept of “human God” and imagine the great power of natural God.

Unfortunately, Carl Sagan died during the production of the film. Otherwise, as an associate producer, he might give the audience a different ending, at least not so contradictory. In the original novel, Ellie didn’t go on this uncertain space trip alone. The sudden fall in the eyes of the world actually walked for 18 hours, not solitary evidence. For scientists from all over the world, when the door of time and space is opened, the powerful electromagnetic field leads to all the instruments out of control without leaving any records. It’s easy to explain why Ellie has to go to Congress to accept the aggressive questioning of a group of ignorant politicians!

The above factors determine my contradictory mentality. I often review this film, but I can’t put it on the “recommended” list. The director’s imbalance in the grasp of the theme, or his ambition is too big. While looking at the starry sky, he tries to explore the human heart and give an ultimate answer about faith. Taking one thing into account and losing the other, a science fiction film with excellent concept is more “reduced” to an inspirational film. But Ellie is not Forrest Gump after all. There is an essential difference between Ellie’s determined pursuit and Forrest Gump’s unconsciousness from cause to effect. The same deductive way can achieve one, but it is impossible to achieve another.

Loss, isolation and loneliness are probably the common spiritual shackles of all intelligent lives. Only when they “touch” each other can this emptiness be tolerated. Therefore, there are a series of stories of “space roaming”; there are countless Ellie who insists on boring listening; there is the “giant’s eye” in New Mexico, facing the stars and capturing any weak message shuttling through the boundless universe, which happens to pass through our earth.

The form of life continues to evolve, breaking through the limitations of the physical body and reaching the realm of freedom of thought. Countless science fiction novels have imagined this prospect for us. What kind of feeling will emerge from the soul overlooking the depths of the universe, “read the long history of heaven and earth, but shed tears alone”? In the face of several wonders of the sun shining in the starry sky, Ellie was full of tears and incoherent. She hated that she was not a poet and could not describe this “miracle”.

I always reflect that I shouldn’t be so harsh that every film has its merits – at least one. For example, the opening paragraph of the film: the noisy radio waves from the earth gradually become silent as the camera moves away; The solar system, the Milky way and the Andromeda nebula are far away one by one, reaching the desolate zone of the universe, absolute silence

Or Kubrick’s sentence: “there is the concept of God in the core – but that is not the image of God in the traditional theory of God Man identity.”
