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


Honor of the prize family is the masterpiece of American director John Houston in his later years. It was made in 1984. The film won almost all the “Golden Globe” awards in the United States, but there was no big gain at the 58th Academy Awards in 1985, except that Angelica Houston, daughter of John Houston, won the “Best Supporting Actress Award”. It seems that there is a rule in the United States. Films that are often popular at other film festivals are difficult to win Oscars again. There may be different reasons.

The Maltese Eagle directed by John Houston in 1942 has long become a classic. In 1948, he won the best director award for gem ridge (also translated as blue blood sands). Later, Humphrey Bogart, who starred in the film queen of Africa, won the best actor Oscar. In fact, John Houston has made many popular films, such as the film “love between the sun and the moon in the fairy cave on a desert island” during World War II. The male and female protagonists are Robert Mitcham and Deborah Cole respectively. The nun trapped on an isolated island in the Pacific Ocean by the Japanese army began a thrilling and romantic day with a lonely U.S. Navy officer. The nun fell into a battle between love and clergy. The fresh and beautiful Deborah Cole also played a nun in black Narcissus.

Back to the honor of the Pritz family, even after more than 20 years, it still seems to be an appetizing film, but the final treatment of the film still hasn’t jumped out of the pattern of traditional films. The so-called “theft also has its way” also applies to Mafia like the pritch family. Even if Charlie, played by Nicholson, loves Amy, his wife who is also a killer, once enlightened by the grace and authority of the “Godfather”, as the heir and leader of the pritch family, he must quickly cut off the future troubles and kill Amy, so as to preserve the interests of the family and the honor of the so-called “Mafia”. Aimei is not a vegetarian, she also has a hand, but her fast gun is not as fast as Charlie’s throwing knife, which is ironic in itself.

Such an ending is not good or bad in itself, but it still feels blocked and flustered, lacking the possibility of breaking new ground, or not breaking through the limitations of traditional films. If Charlie agrees to the “Godfather”, but in the end can let him and Amy still walk together, or take an unusual road and take the wrong side of the sword, maybe the realm of the film will be much broader.

When people expect Charlie and Amy to work together to do a good job with the pritch family, they find that they are wrong. Charlie and his son still have to go back to the old way. In fact, only when they go on the old way can they feel secure. This is roughly similar to the previous godfather, or the constant law of the Mafia, that is, no one wants to start a new stove, otherwise they will die. Betrayal can only bring disaster, so no one dares to take real risks.

But in our outsider’s view, after all, this is only a film, there is no need to follow the rules, and the unique ending is probably just a hypothesis. Because of the traditional technique, it is more confident and meets the needs of most film viewers. Unconventional is often controversial. Creativity can often win by surprise, and the ending we can think of is still insipid, which greatly weakens the tension of the film.

This may be one of the reasons why the film didn’t get something at the Oscar that year. However, this can not be a reason to underestimate this masterpiece. After all, it is the most famous Mafia film in the 1980s and known as the top ten American films in the 1980s. John Houston also won the lifetime achievement award of the Venice Film Festival. He died on Long Island after shooting the dead in 1987.
