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


If you build it, HE will come. Farmer ray heard a voice say this to him repeatedly in his corn field. From then on, he began an incredible journey of search and finally found his own answer. Field of dreams is probably the best fantasy film I’ve ever seen. It is filled with strong simple emotion. The clues of the whole story that seem to have no clue, but are actually closely connected, surprise me. The best fantasy film can be produced without special effects.

The film is based on a novel called shoeless Joe. After Ray confirms that the sound is not an illusion, a baseball field emerges in front of him. He thinks that the sound is to make him a baseball field, so that his father’s idol, shoeless Joe Jackson, a baseball star in the 1920s, will play. When shoeless Joe was involved in the gambling scandal and was suspended for life, Ray’s father, a loyal baseball fan and former player, also fell into a low ebb and achieved nothing. With the support of his wife, ray pushed down the corn field and built a stadium. Therefore, he spent all his savings and had no money to repay the loan. He was regarded as a madman by others. One night, shoeless Joe, who had died for many years, really appeared. The ray family was surprised and unbelievable. When he appeared again, he also brought seven other people who were suspended together. Ray was happy watching the busy stadium. The voice appeared again. This time, he told him: ease his pain. Inspired, ray went to find the famous writer Mann in the 1960s. Mann once wrote an article about his baseball dream and used ray’s father’s name as a character, so ray thought it must be related to him. He ran to find Mann, but Mann, who had lived in seclusion for many years, refused. Unable to resist his request, Mann finally agreed to go to a Red Sox game with ray. Halfway through, ray saw the name of a player named Archibald “Moonlight” Graham on the screen and heard the voice say: go the distance He decided to look for the player who had only played once. When saying goodbye to Mann, he was told that Mann also heard the voice and saw the words on the screen. When they came to Graham’s settlement together, they found that he had become a doctor after retirement and had died. That night, ray walked out of the hotel for a walk and unexpectedly returned to the 1970s. He met old Graham. Ray asked him to go back with himself. The answer was that he preferred to stay here. The next day, ray took Mann home. On the way, he met a young boy. When he introduced his name as Archi Graham, they were surprised. Back on the court, many former players had gathered on the court. Everyone was playing happily, and Archi joined them. Ray’s brother-in-law mark has always opposed his decision. He transferred Ray’s title deed from the bank and asked ray to sign and sell the land to him, otherwise he would be bankrupt. In the dispute, Ray’s daughter Karin was knocked out of her chair and lost consciousness. At the critical moment, Archi walked from the court to the side, became an old doctor Graham and treated Karin, but he would not be young. He thanked ray, walked into the corn field safely and returned to his original era. The baseball players invited Mann to join them. Mann readily agreed. When Ray was wondering why he wasn’t invited, shoeless Joe repeated that sentence to him: if you build it, he will come. He looked at a player in the distance. The man took off his mask and showed his face. He was Ray’s father when he was young. Now ray finally understood who he meant in that sentence. Ray’s mother died when he was 3 years old. His father raised him up. Ray, who was in a rebellious period, often argued with his father. Once he said that he could not respect a person who regarded criminals as idols (shoelss Joe). From then on, he went to college far away from home, which deeply hurt his father’s heart. Until his father died, they did not reconcile. As he grew up, ray was filled with guilt. Looking at his young father, ray didn’t know how to talk about it. He introduced his wife and daughter. The film ended with father and son playing together.

After writing, I looked back and found that the story was really long. When I looked at it, I felt that time passed really fast. Baseball accounts for a large proportion. I know nothing about baseball, but it doesn’t affect my understanding of the theme of the film. The magical baseball field built by ray is the place where people in the film complete their dreams they didn’t achieve. It is a place to make up for their regrets and return to their original heart. Joe and others, who were suspended due to money problems, recovered their enthusiasm for playing. Graham, who had a short career like moonlight, had the opportunity to play and achieve his ambition. The disillusioned Mann ignited his childhood passion for baseball, and ray was able to repair his long missed father son relationship. Everyone will have their own dreams at the beginning, and I am no exception. For some time, it is this and that. Most of them are irrelevant, but there will always be a “possibility” opportunity to let you go in the direction you want. At the same time, most of them are risky opportunities. I think most people will take the most stable road, Moreover, the more things you experience, the more you tend to feel discouraged. Slowly, your dream has become a thing of the past. Occasionally, you take it out to play ash. If you were given a chance to go back to a certain point in time and let you choose again, would it change? I’m afraid it’s hard for me to answer this question. I often feel depressed about a life and a career I don’t love very much. Whether I can really do it or not is another matter. It’s just like Ray’s behavior of risking everything to build a baseball field. Maybe I don’t have his great determination to invest. The choice between dream and reality has to be weighed many times. This is the case for Graham. In those years, he felt that it was more meaningful to treat patients and save people than to spend time in the minor league. He gave up baseball and went to medicine, although his eyes flashed like the sun for an old man when he talked about the only League game. After returning to Ray’s baseball field, he still gave up enjoying the joy of baseball in order to do his duty as a doctor. This is Graham’s choice. From him, we can realize that choosing the weight of both sides over time and choosing the other side is likely to make your regret of giving up as small as possible.

The most touching nature in the film is the trauma and compensation between ray and his son. Because the estrangement between them is very familiar to me. The image of extremely tall parents in the eyes of children often darkens gradually with their growth, the increase of knowledge and the formation of judgment. The times are always progressive. The education and concepts we receive are inevitably different from those of our parents. We begin to feel disapproval or even contempt for some of our parents’ behaviors and will argue with them. Sometimes it seems that the topic of the debate is meaningless. We get the self-identity of “I’m mature” from the debate and ignore our parents’ feelings. Many times, it turns out that he is bad, but he can’t apologize face to face. It’s hard for everyone to cover there, just like ray and his father. Ray thought of shouless Joe and Mann from his voice, but he didn’t think of his father very soon. In the end, he didn’t realize the relationship between the stadium and his father. The disagreement between father and son was hidden in his heart and didn’t want to take the initiative to think of it. In the process of seeking the answer, it slowly surfaced in his heart and made him remember that it was his regret. I want to avoid, but I can’t avoid, which is really in line with my mood. After watching the film, I was reminded that I may disagree with my parents’ behavior and ideas, but don’t do anything to hurt their hearts and make up for the rift in family affection. Don’t wait until the last moment. Not everyone can have a second chance like ray.

Many lines and plots in the film have a sense of humor. I can smile when I am moved. This is another place where I love this film. The actors are good. Ray’s persistence and a little childish, Ray’s refreshing wife and lovely daughter have left a good impression on me. The two old actors James Earl Jones and Burt Lancaster performed particularly well. Mann’s wit and wisdom and old Graham’s indifference are the absolute highlights. Burt Lancaster is old and powerful. This is his last film role. It’s a great ending. Shoeless Joe is equivalent to a messenger between the corn world and the real world. Compared with other traversers, it seems very mysterious and sometimes frightening. Especially in the scene where he laughs, Khan and ray Liotta play a sense of distance~~

Some other about the film:

The suspension of shoeless Joe and seven other players is known as the Black Sox incident (their team name is White Sox). In 1919, their team lost to their opponents in the World League. Eight of them were accused of accepting bribes from gamblers and deliberately losing the game. Finally, eight of them were declared never to play in the league. Whether Joe is innocent has always been controversial, because he played well and made no mistakes in that game. People in the film generally think that he was wronged. There was a film eight men out that positively described the Black Sox event. It was produced just a year before the field of dreams. Shoeless Joe was a hit in the film world at that time.

Graham is real, too. The author of the original film accidentally saw his name from the baseball player encyclopedia, became interested in his experience and wrote it into the novel. Most of his descriptions in the novel are loyal to the prototype. The success of novels and films has attracted unexpected attention to the previously unknown Graham.

The character Mann was created by a film screenwriter. In the novel, ray looked for Salinger. The representative work of Mann mentioned in the film influenced the boat rocker who was regarded as obscene and obscene by conservative residents in the 1960s. In fact, he said that he was the catcher in the wheat field. Salinger is a friend of the original author W. P. Kinsella. Salinger is the one who accompanied Kinsella to visit Graham and collect materials. In one of his novels, there is a character named ray Kinsella (a character in the wheat field is also Kinsella, which is used in the name of Ray’s twin brother in the novel).

If you build it, HE will come. It has become a classic line and has been quoted and spoofed by n many film and television films. Many articles also love to quote this sentence, which has become a slang.

“Is this Heaven?” It is the tourism advertising language of Iowa State. This sentence has been directly publicized in the film and appears in the father son dialogue at the end:

Is this heaven?

It’s Iowa.

Iowa? I could have sworn this was heaven. It’s too embarrassing for Iowa~~

At the beginning of the film, ray thought he was hearing hallucinations. He saw his daughter watching TV. It was Elwood’s play about the first time he met Harvey in Harvey. Ray turned off the TV distraught. “This man is sick!”

At the beginning of the father son reunion, Ray’s father didn’t know that his son was opposite. Is this natural? How did he know what his son would look like in the future? Ray didn’t point out. The two people were matched by their names, but later ray called Dad and his father agreed. It seems that there is a contradiction in logic. In fact, this sentence dad didn’t exist. After the audition, the audience responded that the father son relationship didn’t clearly indicate that they didn’t agree, so dad was added later. Now it seems that it’s good not to add it. Of course, this logical problem is harmless.
