Some sexual insults from the drill sergeant


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


It’s impossible to say “born to kill” or “human nature is good” to become all one’s instincts. This is a contradiction between people and the two sides of everything in the world.

From entering the recruit training camp to news gathering and writing in the post-war base areas, in fact, the figure of “clown” reflects the human nature in a general environment. At first, he was upright, openly refuted the instructor’s words, and even had to be appreciated. When the people around him couldn’t teach “fat pie”, he took over the task and took care of each other in good order.

But the cruelty of the story suddenly appeared here. The clown didn’t stop the recruits around him from destroying the sect. On the contrary, he joined the group. Of course, the slowness of the pie will be unbearable to others, but for the “clown” himself, this move might as well be understood as an explosion under repression. As an ordinary person, it is normal to suppress his nature intentionally or unintentionally in the general environment, and there is an appropriate release port on this specific occasion. But after doing it, it will become his nightmare.

The transformation of “fat pie” has also been since then. Mumbling, scary eyes, quick action. But no one expected the sudden outburst in the end. It is said that the suicide paragraph should have happened in the dormitory according to the script, but Kubrick changed it into a toilet. This sudden in a closed and quiet place will especially show a chilling effect, not to mention the special choice of white. White, which we always think represents solemn, pure and equal color, has become the spokesman of extreme violence in Kubrick. Think about this gentleman’s [clockwork orange]. Which of Alex’s milk and his tightly wrapped coat is not shocking.

To say that paili was a victim of the system before the war is not complete. The stereotyped cold training needs not warmth, but a killing machine. This environment makes people feel insecure and have no time to look around. The original dull performance of the school dragged the whole staff back. At that time, you can’t expect the salvation given by others. The faction finally ended Hartman’s life, but it was not resistance. On the contrary, there was a deep loss. As soon as his vicious eyes turned, they immediately became extremely empty and opened his head. In this section, Kubrick’s treatment was clean, transparent and looked on coldly. It is in sharp contrast to the lively opening and mocking irony in the first half of recruits’ training.

In the twinkling of an eye, the recruits went to the battlefield, and the “clown” became one of the war reporters. There is no smoke of war here, but there is more reflection on the Vietnam War, especially represented by clowns. What he saw was just a farce directed, acted and released by the United States in order to prove his ability. Of course, there was also his own contradiction: he wanted to go to the front line and he also wanted to win, even though he knew it was impossible and the truth of “invincible”. As he said, one side of mankind is “born to kill”. Even people as dull as pie know to pull the trigger to conquer the instructor he never dared to disobey; On the other hand, it is the desire for good in a corner of people’s heart. I’m not a human expert. I can’t know what instinct is, but privately, I think everyone should have both sides, just to see which side overwhelms which side at the critical moment.

The last ironic moment was when a group of American soldiers broke out of the siege and found the sniper who shot at them, but they were surprised to find that it was a young Vietnamese girl. This is a satire of hegemonism and a sorrow for war – no one has himself anymore, but only the country’s war machine. The clown raises his gun and still ends up with a girl whose life is worse than death. You can understand it as the victory of the human side in his body, but the sneer of paili in the toilet, which has been entangled in his mind, is destined to be his lifelong nightmare. It is the human nature that has long been eroded by the war and brainwashed after being seriously distorted by the system. Even if there has been that short recovery, what can we do?
