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



[just now, the Oscar ceremony broke the biggest Oolong in history. Hollywood legend Warren Beatty and his screen partner Fei Donovan announced the city of love After winning the best picture, the producer of the film had delivered his acceptance speech on the stage and found that the card in the envelope didn’t write his own film. At present, the official saying is that the staff made a mistake in the envelope, and Betty got the envelope of the best actress. Because the word “best actress” at the bottom of the card is very small, it is estimated that the grandparents can’t see clearly. Although there are questions, they have to announce it in big words. In this way, “Moonlight boy” staged an amazing reversal and directly took the little golden man who had already got the city of love from the stage. Another joke in the market is that Isabel yuper should check whether there are mistakes in the award envelope of the best actress. Mullen aduh, the director of Tony Erdman, estimated that there was no need to review the envelope of the best foreign language film. The Iranian film “salesman” won the cold. Basically, trump acted as a free promoter – he listed Iran as a prohibited country in January, and the director fahati announced that he would not attend the Oscar to protest, So the college members who had not seen the film directly voted their protest votes for the salesman.]

The resentment between African Americans and Hollywood is a social and cultural history topic worthy of great books, from the white painting “black face” (now considered highly discriminatory) derived from the dramatic tradition to Heidi McDaniels’s winning the first Oscar Award for black actors with gone with the wind (1939), Although there is Carmen Jones (1954), a successful all black musical and dance film by the legendary director Preminger, the screen image of African Americans has long been limited to marginalized roles such as slaves, servants and criminals. Since the 1990s, African American filmmakers began to make breakthroughs on a large scale, and the positive image on the screen has soared. There are more films created by black artists, performed by black actors, and telling their own experiences and stories from the perspective of African American community. Some people call them “black film” for convenience.

However, the number of such films is still small. Last year, Oscar made a public outcry because no African American actor was nominated in successive years. The topic label on #oscar sowhite (Oscar too white) was overwhelming on twitter. Cheryl Bunny Isaacs, the president of the college as an African American woman, was forced to announce that more ethnic minorities would be included in the new members of the college in 2016. Just a year later, the “black film” made a big splash at the Academy Awards: the hidden person, which has great entertainment spirit and educational significance to the public, the fence, which was born out of drama for actors, love, which tells the end of the anti intermarriage law in the United States, and three works involving African American topics in the feature film unit.

However, in addition to the true eye of the documentary, the “black film” in the feature film still stylized the image of the black community in content, lacking diversity. Twelve years of slavery, which won the Oscar in 2014, is a grand narrative of the “official history” of African Americans. The 2011 hot “help” and this year’s “hidden people” are also set against the background of the affirmative movement. Many “black films” are actually a reaction to white works and society. Although there are a lot of necessary work, such creation should be done almost in the 1980s and 1990s. Twelve years of slavery was released in 2014 instead of 1994, which itself shows that the racial problem in the American film industry has been serious for a long time. The rest, such as zhilac and quiddie two years ago, can only be regarded as some contributions of African American filmmakers to public entertainment by packaging stereotypes with ancient Greek dramas or Hollywood classics and continuing to sell them.

The birth of a country, which was a big hit in Sundance last year but was forgotten because director Nate Parker was suspected of sexual assault, pointed to the work of the same name by legendary director Griffith from the title. The birth of a country in 1915 has a prominent position in film history, but the unbearable black image and the positive portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan have aroused great controversy. In the best documentary nominated work “I’m not your nigger”, it is mentioned that Griffith’s film directly caused the revival of the Ku Klux Klan in the United States in the 1920s. Nate Parker’s birth of a country is a reversal of Griffith’s works. It tells the story of a black slave priest gradually growing into an uprising leader, and directly translates Griffith’s white heroism into black heroism. The apparent prosperity of this “black film” actually integrates the creativity of many African American artists into a sub type with a routine to follow. It requires the works to hit every sensitive point in identity politics and shape another stereotyped black image, which has almost become a kind of cultural apartheid.

Fortunately, there is moonlight boy.

The film is adapted from the play in moonlight black boys look blue, a strong autobiographical play by Yale Drama professor and black gay tarrell Alvin mclarney, and the director Barry Jenkins’s own experience as a child (the mother image in the film is almost his own mother). The whole film is divided into three paragraphs, which tell the stories of the protagonist’s childhood, adolescence and adulthood. Cheron, a black boy, has long lacked love and care because of his mother’s drug abuse. He is introverted and thin. He is often bullied by his classmates and is called “faggot”. Chilen met the drug dealer Hoon and his girlfriend Teresa, and found a long lost family warmth there. As a teenager, chilen had sex with his only friend Kevin, but after Kevin punched him under peer pressure, chilen was completely violent and laid a hard hand on the campus bullies who had bullied him for a long time. Therefore, like many black American men, he was like the police Prison has come into contact (see the 13th Amendment, which nominated the best documentary feature film, for the imprisonment of black men). In the last paragraph, chilen goes to the new city and becomes the drug dealer leader like the dead Juan, but his hesitation about his identity and his love for Kevin still occupy all of his heart.

Jenkins, like shazeller, knows that as a young director making a second feature film, he must intimidate critics and audiences from the beginning. Just like the beginning of “city of love”, Jenkins mobilized his most exquisite film language from the beginning to set the tone for the whole film. He chose to start with the cold, arrogant and arrogant image of drug dealer hu’ang, and opened with a high profile. The camera revolved around the magnificent actor mahsala Ali, wrapped the dangerous environment around the confident hu’ang, which also showed his high vigilance to the surrounding environment. Then there is the hand lens when chilen was chased by his classmates, which can be regarded as one of the most appropriate hand lens of the year, entering the subjective world and infinitely amplifying the characters’ emotions. Such accurate lens language is implemented throughout the film, and the use of symphony in the soundtrack makes the strong soft and the weak noble. The conversion between the two is not abrupt at all.

If we insist on classification according to identity, moonlight boy is a real “black film” in the 21st century. It puts a question mark on the stereotype of black men and tortures the male image in American culture and black culture with the growth process of a black gay boy. It is no longer the official history of the bitter hatred of African Americans, but also goes beyond the dichotomy of black and white world outlook, enters a delicate and personal narrative, and truly shows us the minority characters as flesh and blood individuals. “Jenkins avoided what I call Negro hyperbole in the whole film, that is, the stereotypes commonly used to express black life in America,” said Hilton Al, a drama critic of the new Yorker who is also a black homosexual

Jenkins doesn’t show you the violent side of Hoon’s life, but shows his family life and his tenderness to chilen. The “conversation between men” between him and the little boy is not any cruel growth ceremony, but teaching him to swim at sea. The beauty of body, sea water and sky light makes people forget his underworld background. The scene of him holding his child to learn floating water, the fixed camera and soothing music are in extreme opposition to the 360 degree vigilance of the drug dealer and the hasty flight of the little boy – this is teaching him love and trust, and teaching him that there are moments in life when you don’t have to guard against your back or panic, and keep a close eye on the person you love in front of you, even if you have to pay a heavy price for it.

Such a film is very difficult to deal with sex. First, in the tradition of screen image, there was the stigmatization of black men as primitive people and rapists with strong sexual desire at first, and then black men who were “de sexualized” in the mass media. These two extremes are precisely the history of homosexual images on the screen, from the “de sexualization” at the beginning to the obsession with sex scenes in queer films. Jenkins uses the climate background of Miami in the film to show a large number of men and women’s bodies. The whole film maintains a high sexual tension, but the only real time is the clumsy taste between two teenagers on the beach. Everyone has the green taste of forbidden fruit for the first time. The two black boys at the bottom are no different from the boys and girls of middle-class white families. They have real desires, but they are not sex machines.

The film makes these “contrary to common sense” details appear so natural, and then we find that the problem is the “common sense” itself, which is just the inherent impression of society on a group. As a child, chilen asked Juan and Teresa what a “faggot” was and whether they were “faggots”. We don’t get angry, abusive or preaching about how to “be a man”. The drug lord with tendons and flesh behaves like an enlightened and wise University Professor, giving one of the best sex education plays in film and television works. Is this true? Is it normal? Perhaps it is the previous typed and facebook “black films” that make people feel that such delicate and natural details should not appear. Fictional works themselves have no “truth” but “credibility”, and the audience’s judgment of credibility is closely related to social discourse, which in turn requires the works to participate in the manufacture.

Moonlight boy presents a world of all African Americans. All the characters with lines are black. There is no deliberate speech to whites or reaction to white society in the film. This is a self-contained black society. It has the bottom, drugs and crime, but it also has everything owned by all other groups. It does not exist relative to any other, it is self consistent. However, this pure black world mobilizes the common sense of the audience, constantly points to the problems still existing in reality, shows the lower class without anger or sorrow, implies the role of race in social stratification, and the relationship between black boys and the national violence machine. Yupell said that “she” is a “post feminist” film. For the protagonist Michelle, all the struggles have been won, and she just needs to be herself. To use the same saying, “Moonlight boy” is a film that wants to be a “post race” but can’t, but at least it’s a great attempt. So when I say that it is “the last ‘black film’, I mean that its direction is to abandon the meaningless saying of” black film “and completely jump out of the shackles of stereotype. (the only satirical comedy that has tried the same before may be the 2014 satirical comedy Dear white people.) Although limited by the times, Jenkins’s works still bear the heavy fate of African American artists in terms of creation, communication and interpretation of public opinion, it points a clear way for the practice of all ethnic minorities in American films in the future. Of course, there can be many roads. This is just one of them.

The real relationship between this film and the tradition of “black film” is not on the screen or in the script, but behind the scenes. One of the three producers of moonlight boy is Jeremy Kleiner, the master of twelve years of slavery. After winning the best film with the latter, he immediately produced Selma (2014) with the same black theme. The response was much worse than before. Last year, he abandoned the black theme and turned to the political film big short. Di Gardner and Adele romansky, the other two producers of moonlight boy, are women. This is the first time in the Oscar’s 89 year history that more women than men have seen the best picture little golden man on stage. They bring an individual narrative that is not anxious and impatient, and turn the collective dilemma into specific characters at one time and one place, rather than treating people as symbols. If Kleiner put the “black film” on the highest throne of the American film industry, moonlight boy opens a new era of creation in the artistic and social sense for this “type” – twelve years of slavery needs Oscar, but Oscar needs moonlight boy.
