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


1、 First meeting

They met at an inappropriate time and occasion, talked about the old, then had dinner together, praised the hostess’s delicious baked pie, and then went out to duel together. Because everyone has their own masters. Now one is a soldier and the other is a thief. Some time ago, the situation was just the opposite. Don’t ask what happened, because the duel will begin soon, but before that, the host asked Billy boy to replace an old door for himself. They came out of the house one after another, and the owner’s family came out to watch. This should be a rare big play in that era, so we can’t miss it, although we are so familiar with it. The two agreed on a ten step limit. On the count of three, Billy boy had turned around, raised his gun and waited; Beard turned and fired on the count of eight. As a result, he was shot at the center. Billy walked over and said it wasn’t ten, fool. Beard said he could never count, and then died

The previous scenes have surprised me, and this scene completely stunned me. I know too much about Sam pekingfa in the past, such as violence, slow mirror, fixed photography… Wild Gang, straw dog, afternoon gunshot, Iron Cross… A man as hard as stone, a woman raped or beaten… But at this moment, I think I still have too much to know about him. This is his film pat Garrett & Billy the kid (1973), which is a unique style in the past and future of Westerns. For a loyal fans of western films, there are too many people and things that have never happened here, always unexpected and sudden.

2、 Arrest and escape

This is a pure western story of Sam Perkin’s French style, about the capture and escape of two men. On the side of the rules is old Sheriff pat, and on the side of the wilderness is Billy boy. Before the beginning of the story, they just exchanged identities, so in a sense, this is a misplaced story. Because of this, the film begins with a dislocation scene carefully designed by Sam pekingfa and completed through editing – one year after Billy boy’s death, old Pat was ambushed and killed, and the cross editing comes in a scene where Billy boy and his companions competed with each other a few years ago. The editing effect is the same as that old Pat was shot by Billy boy. This may be another balance between Billy boy’s death at the end of the story and old Pat’s gun.

The two men live in Lincoln, Mexico. Naturally, they are inextricably connected with each other. The story has always emphasized their cherished friendship in the past. One character said that their relationship is like a father and son. In old Pat’s view, “time is changing”, while Billy boy said, “time is changing, I haven’t changed”, so naturally there was a conflict. Old Pat was elected a new sheriff by the ranchers. His first job was to drive away the former law enforcer Billy boy, or kill him.

3、 Survival law

To survive in the west, we must follow the law of survival. The first condition is that the gun should be accurate, and the second is to have friends. Old pat and Billy are both the best of them. They are like the east evil and West poison of Lincoln Town. When they turn friends into enemies, a tit for tat showdown is bound to break out, but we know this is the climax of the story and must be left to the end.

Capture and escape naturally occupy most of the story. And everyone in Lincoln Town will be forced to be divided into two categories: one is on the side of old pat and the other is on the side of Billy boy. However, things in the world can’t be so black and white. We see more people sandwiched between them and their common friends. Mustache may be such a person. He used to be a cattle thief. Maybe he was driven out of town by Billy boy, the law enforcer at that time. When he heard that Billy boy would be asked to hang, he went back to the town to watch the excitement. He happened to encounter Billy boy escaping from prison and old pat recruiting people everywhere, so he became old Pat’s deputy. When he had dinner at a friend’s house and accidentally met Billy boy, a gun battle inevitably happened. According to the Western survival law, the slow gun is bound to die. Beard obviously knows this and knows that he can’t be faster than Billy boy, so he agreed to count to ten. At eight, he turned and shot.

This is a paradox. Obviously, he doesn’t want to be an enemy, but he has become an enemy of life and death; Obviously there is a way, but in order to survive, we have to do something against the way; There is no it. Sometimes the word meaning always comes first.

4、 Friendship

Time is changing, some things remain unchanged, and righteousness may be one of them.

Old pat took over the post of sheriff. He knew what he was going to do. He knew it shouldn’t be done, but he had to do it when he took over the task. Don’t ask why he took the job. Men always have some responsibilities to bear. He knew the purpose of those people’s recommendation, but he just couldn’t turn back. This is the paradox and the tragedy.

This is the West. Time is changing. Smart people know that some things can’t be avoided. Billy boy is. When he got old Pat’s warning, his companion asked him why he didn’t kill old pat on the spot. He said they were friends. A wise man knows that there are things to do and things not to do, so let it be. When Billy boy had not decided whether he should go to Mexico or not, old pat had led people to surround him. Two companions were killed in the gunfight. He caught himself and waited to be asked to hang. When old pat went out, Billy boy accidentally got a gun in the toilet, killed two police officers and took off his flail.

This is a true story. There are many legends about this detail. One of them is that old pat left the gun.

So old pat began his easy pursuit and was waiting for Billy boy to flee the United States. In this way, everything is fine.

5、 Gunfire

Billy boy went back to his companions’ house and walked in. There were naked women everywhere

The next morning, Billy boy had breakfast and killed three bounty hunters who came to hear the news. There was also a young man with them. He was good at throwing knives, but he stood by Billy boy. But no one knows his heart. Maybe he just knows that his knife is no faster than Billy boy’s gun.

On the other side, old pat is on his way. He first found another sheriff and went on the road with his wife to find clues outside the city. What was waiting for them was a gun battle, and all those who knew the clues were killed. One of them rode here with old pat more than ten years ago.

During the gunfight, the sheriff was shot twice. He staggered to the lake in the distance, sat down quietly, covered his wound and looked at the sunset. Her wife walked over silently and sat behind him, silent, with wet eyes. At that moment, I was completely knocked down by technology. It turned out that there was such a delicate, soft and sad heart behind Sam pekingfa’s frenzy and rudeness.

6、 Ending

Billy boy decided to go to Mexico. On the way, he met a Mexican friend who was killed and turned back.

He told his companions that no one could drive them away.

Then he knew that old pat had come.

At night, old pat found Billy boy. He was having crazy sex with a woman in his room.

Old pat sat on the swing outside the house and waited until they finished.

After the love, Billy boy went outside the room and found two people with old pat. One of them didn’t want to be an enemy with him, and the other came to kill him, but he didn’t dare to shoot because Billy boy had a gun in his hand.

Billy boy returned to the room and was shot dead by old pat waiting there.

There is no big duel we expect, only the ruthless reality of Sam pekingfa.

7、 Mirror

Old pat shot Billy boy, then saw himself in the mirror, so he fired another shot in the mirror.

Then he went to the mirror, which was broken into several pieces, reflecting his divided, chaotic and countless figures.

8、 Law enforcers

In those lawless days, Billy boy and old pat were friends, partners and partners who shared weal and woe.

Later Billy boy was employed by the rancher. He was a law enforcer and old Pat was a fugitive.

When the ranchers elected old pat as law enforcement sheriff, he became a law enforcer, and Billy boy was a fugitive.

Bearded was a horse thief. When old pat gave him a badge, he became a law enforcer.

So, at the dinner table, when bearded met Billy boy, Billy boy told him that the legal system was a ridiculous thing.

When Billy boy was in prison, he could see a new gallows from the window behind him, next to an American flag.

9、 Western past

For many years, the Western way of life was to catch bison and graze on ownerless land, which was their private property. Slowly, the big ranchers unite to divide the grazing area by themselves, and regard the grazing area as private property. No matter who owns the cattle, sheep and horses on this land, the ranchers regard it as their own property. The beginning of the story is the era after the Lincoln County War. Everything began to be in order. The big ranchers are enjoying the benefits of priority. Once outlaws are no longer suitable to survive in this era.

Sam pekingfa made Westerns when Westerns began to be silent. The stories they tell are no longer those black and white people and things, but contradictions, blood and fire under the background of chaos, mixed with a little self mocking black humor. When Billy boy escaped from prison and came to the street, he asked the blacksmith to help him find the best horse he could see. Soon after he got on the horse, he was knocked off his back and fell to the ground.

10、 Fragment

Back to the beginning of the movie, after Billy boy died. Old pat also became the owner of a large area of land. He told his tenants not to herd sheep on the land. The reason may be that he used to be a cowboy. Tenants said they had signed contracts and enjoyed legal protection; Old pat said the damn law might destroy the country, and then he was shot. In the middle of the story, old pat takes a gunman sent by the governor to find Billy boy. The gunman says that the era of tramps and outlaws is over. Old pat says he is old. Billy boy may be right. At the end of the story, after Billy boy died, the gunman went to cut off his trigger finger and was knocked down by old pat angrily. Then old pat sat quietly on the swing until dawn.

11、 Movie

It’s so rich and chaotic that I can’t say it clearly.

I think of a variety show I happened to see. Tianxin said that he once visited Chen Sheng when he was making a film and asked him what the characteristics of the album were. Chen Sheng answered two words: good; Then Tianxin continued to ask Chen Sheng if he wanted to speak more. Chen Sheng said: good.

Maybe that’s what I can clearly say.
