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


Jamush’s “Patterson” is not such an obscure film. Ordinary audiences can understand this story about the daily life of bus drivers and poets without obstacles, but the rich and connotative details of “Patterson” are easy to be ignored or even misunderstood. After reading it five times, this is not only a pull note, but also a film review.

If these detailed information cannot be accurately received, the film will probably only stay at the level of “literary film”, but Patterson is a real art film – literary film and art film may have different expressions, but because of various misinterpretations of the word “Literature” at present, it has a slight irony. First, second, It is said that Patterson is an “art film” because it touches on the truth of Art (poetry, to be exact).

Again: Jia Muxu is a film artist with excellent quality in music, art and literature, including film. His “literature and art” belongs to a very high level, which can not be summarized by the disgusting catchphrase of simple literature and art.

What is a poet? What is poetic heart?

Most fans’ impressions of Patterson can be unified here: the so-called poetry in daily life, Patterson’s dual identity as a bus driver and poet, one life and two worlds. His high sensitivity to daily details, his gentle patience and his delicate elegance make him find beautiful poetry in the seemingly monotonous and boring life.

This perception is direct and certain, of course. But it is not so simple. Equating poetry with the details of life or directly linking it to the sensitive heart of life is to weaken and simplify the behavior of “Poets”: many people are sensitive and delicate to life, and many people even have the ability to paint two strokes and create a few “good sentences” (the circle of friends is the best show for these people to write these sentences), but these people are not poets, Although those words are the form of poetry, they even have the beauty of poetry.

The fact that Patterson is both a bus driver and a poet does not mean that the threshold of a poet has been lowered to the point where everyone can do it: what matters is Patterson’s “heart of a poet”. The identity of a real poet is not important (it has nothing to do with identity), but this “poet’s heart”. It is not that a poet switches to the poet mode only when he wants to vent his mood and show off a few capricious thoughts. Without switching, a poet will always be a poet.

He was born, before he realized it, after it, and always after death—— This is not a language game. If not, the so-called poet must be a poor so-called poet.

This is talent. Jia Mushu may really want to convey the beauty of poetry in daily life through this film, to inspire some people to embrace an ordinary audience, open your facial features and touch the ubiquitous poetry. But fundamentally, it shows the uniqueness and non imitation of Patterson as a poet: Yes, no matter how ordinary Patterson’s identity is, his identity as a poet can not be imitated by anyone.

The poet’s heart is the poet’s state at any time, in any state and in any contact in life. This is a real “gentle madness” created all the time. It is also what Duchamp called “my breath is art”. Real artists have the same goal. Patterson is not the only poet when he writes poetry in front of the waterfall. He is a poet when driving a bus, walking a dog, chatting with his girlfriend, waking up in the morning and eating breakfast.

Only by understanding this can we grasp the rich details in the film.

The drama of everyday life: danger

Patterson is not simply expressing poetry in life, but the process of discovering poetry. Therefore, many details are not poetic, but magic, coincidence, humor and danger. Patterson is accepting them and digesting them. The “echo” in life corresponds to the “echo” in creation.

For example, Patterson’s No. 23 bus broke down and broke down. His girlfriend and the bar owner mentioned in their conversation that “the bus will not explode into a fireball”. When it appeared before and after, it formed a correspondence (echo and rendering in literary creation), which vaguely conveyed a daily danger.

Including the lovelorn little black brother Everett, who was obsessed with his predecessor and finally shot himself in the bar – of course, it was a farce. Patterson subdued his brother. The former girl praised Patterson’s word as “heroic” and heroic. Danger in daily life, hero in daily life.

Jia Mushu is too good at stirring up the mood of the audience. For example, Patterson met a car of rap team with Marvin, and the other party said he should be careful that Marvin, a bulldog, is easy to be stolen. Correspondingly, when Patterson went to the bar to tie Marvin outside the bar, and then Patterson went to the bar, the audience’s emotional expectation was: will he bring Marvin in after listening to the stolen warning. No, Marvin is still outside. This kind of control of film watching emotion makes the audience completely immersed in the plot.

This is Jia Mushu’s specialty. Including the tilted mailbox at Patterson’s house. Patterson had to straighten it every time he came home. Later, it was revealed that it was the good thing of naughty Ma Wengan – there was a humorous confrontation between Patterson and his pet dog Ma Wen. Ma Wen (the meaning of the name is not much to say, and anyone familiar with Jia Mushu knows this stem) destroyed Patterson’s poetry collection, Is the peak of this confrontation.

Before destroying the poetry collection, Jia Mushu gave a hint in his lines and camera. That morning, Patterson took Marvin out for a walk. As soon as he went out, he had differences: it was obvious that he was used to going to the left, but Marvin chose to go to the right today. And when he reached the waterfall, Patterson wanted to stop and rest (this is where he used to write poetry). Marvin refused to stop and ran forward again.

This has vaguely implied the drama to happen. Before going out, Laura said to Marvin: guard our place, and then a camera was given to Patterson’s notebook left on the sofa. It finally led to disaster.

Push forward. There is a plot in front that Laura has been persuading Patterson to print the poem, “please for at least a year”. Patterson promised to print it on Sunday. Notice, just then, Marvin shouted—— It seems to understand the dialogue and pave the way for destroying the notebook later.

Narrative and fictional instincts

Patterson is full of similar behavior patterns, such as getting up every day, watching watches, going out, listening to old Indian friends complain, driving, writing poetry, walking dogs, drinking beer in bars and so on. There are few stories on the bus. It’s mainly that Patterson is listening to other people’s gossip. Interestingly, there were three small chats: two little boys, two construction workers and two college students.

They talk about a variety of contents, but they integrate all kinds of narration, fiction (boasting) and discussion: we don’t realize that we live in a world composed of narration, fiction and discussion. This is not the patent of writers and artists, but our life. Two construction workers boast about how to attract women, which is almost oral literature. And don’t forget the scene of a bar owner telling a ridiculous story about a bear to a woman.

There is also the black rap brother in the laundry. He belongs to the rap form of “Patterson”. He has to create anytime, anywhere, find rhythm and match lyrics, and sympathize with Patterson. Although the rap brother is a little stupid, he also has a lovely infatuation. (to say more, William Carlos Williams has a poem about the laundry. I don’t know if jamush’s setting this scene is a tribute)

In this context, Patterson’s poetry creation has also become closely related to the present: artists are most closely connected with life, which even makes ordinary people feel ungrounded. The poet’s Paterson’s facial features are always open. All these observations and feelings are integrated into his poems through changes. Some can be seen (such as matches and poems at the bottom of beer glasses), and some can’t be seen but can be felt.

I also sorted out the poems in the film in a diary: https://www.douban.com/note/607686062/

Horse hooves

There is an important and recurring detail in Patterson, that is, twins. Six pairs of twins have appeared successively. Interestingly, the little girl who wrote the poem said they were twins, but they didn’t appear in the same picture. Maybe Jia Mushu played a trick. In addition, there is the film “Ghost Island” watched by Patterson and Laura on Saturday night. The heroine is as like as two peas Lara. Paterson also says with a smile that you are twins.

There are also bar owners playing chess with themselves. This twin Metaphor – Twins of all ages, it is almost impossible to appear so frequently in Paterson. Jia Mushu added this rare, humorous and dramatic detail in the film to add mystery and many meanings. For example, Patterson and William Carlos Williams formed a “twin” relationship.

Sleeping position and watch time

Patterson’s girlfriend Laura is a very thought-provoking role. She has too many dreams: cupcakes, folk singers, visual style artists, etc. and it’s amazing that she has a particularly pure passion. Whether it’s unrealistic or not, she’s also a typical daydreamer. In a way, she’s the same kind of person as Patterson, so they’re together.

Note that from Monday to Wednesday, iPads appear on the right side of the screen. The bar owner once asked Patterson why he didn’t buy a smartphone and his girlfriend. Patterson said that his girlfriend has a smartphone, a laptop and an iPad, and his girlfriend can accept that he doesn’t have a cell phone.

But the couple’s state is dangerous: this danger is potential and hidden. There is no paragraph in the film that directly shows the breakdown of their dispute. Patterson is gentle and Laura is warm, but there is always a kind of uneasiness. When they wake up every morning, their sleeping position changes, which is very thought-provoking.

From Monday to Friday, Patterson gets up to look at his watch. Jia Mushu also gives a close-up shot of time (he doesn’t give a close-up of his watch on weekends). The times from Monday to Friday are 6:12, 6:15, 6:12, 6:28 and 6:28 respectively. This subtle time change (continuous close-up can’t be meaningless, of course, it can’t be over interpreted) represents that Patterson falls into continuous fatigue.

Patterson vs petrack, Laura vs Laura

The lens here is worth pondering. Patterson writes in the gadget room in the basement. Laura comes down to greet. Jamushi uses a very common “mirror reflection” lens, but here, there is a strong sense of Alienation: the spiritual world of Laura and Patterson is more or less incompatible.

And in the beginning and second half of the film (84 minutes), there is a picture: the photo album on the bedside table. There are photos of Patterson’s military uniform, parents and even the dog Marvin, but there is no picture of Laura.

It’s very touching that although there are some ridicules about Laura’s role and some concerns about their relationship in the film, it is still sweet on the whole.

Laura’s picture, which didn’t appear on the bedside table, appeared in Patterson’s lunch box with Dante’s postcard—— His love for Laura is infinitely gentle (the poem “Little Pumpkin” in the film). From various details, we can see that he patiently accepts Laura’s changeable ideal pursuit and the ubiquitous black-and-white modification, just as Laura’s confidence in his poetry creation has never wavered.

Later, Laura mentioned that another great classical poet Petrac had an early poetry collection called the secret book, which was dedicated to a woman named Laura. Patterson and petrak, Laura and Laura, it seems that they correspond.

This vagueness and ambiguity in emotional details is an important aesthetic feature of Jia Mushu’s films. There is an undercurrent of estrangement under sweetness, and there is also a surge of love in contradictions. Compared with his previous works, the “Vagueness and ambiguity” in Patterson is much more gentle, no longer cold and helpless, but full of comfort like winter sunshine.

Poet’s identity anxiety

After the poetry collection was destroyed, Laura comforted Patterson. Patterson said: it doesn’t matter. Those poems were originally written on water. This is probably the most touching and heartbreaking line in the film.

But please put away your sadness and understand it from another angle: at this time, Patterson began to realize the problem of “poet identity”. Before, he never seriously thought about whether he was a poet or not, because he has been writing, which itself is, why speculate. But now that the poetry collection has been destroyed, there is no physical evidence to prove that he is a poet (of course, self-proof). He began to waver.
