A man is on top of a young girl and they are having, what seems to be, unconsented sex (as the teenage girl is clearly not enjoying it). No nudity is shown, but the man is shirtless and the camera shows the bed moving. It also implies that he had an orgasm because of what he says before he stops moving.
A show woman sings and dances in a juke joint for people while she wears a revealing red flashy dress. Men are drooling over her making sexual remarks. Couples kissing and dancing intimately are shown.
A married man makes consistent passes at a young woman, following her on her outings and eventually grabbing her, pulling her into some bushes. Her screams are heard as the camera moves away from the scene.
A girl finds out that she is pregnant, and the grandfather gets upset getting the point across that it was because she had her “legs open” to everyone.
Two women kiss romantically in a room while they both caress each other’s arms. It is brief and the scene fades away.
Two women going through some photos find nude pictures of a woman. The nudity is shown, but it is very brief.
It is implied that a man died during sex.

There is a scene implying that a father raped his daughter and impregnated her (though he is later revealed to be her stepfather) . After the baby is born, he warns her never to tell anyone.

The great women who guided mankind upwards.
  –Victor Hugo
  
  You are rich because you have the money to go online and see this post – and so you are free because no one is forcing you
to open this post – and so you are proud because you more or less agree or disagree with it.
  you are beautiful or handsome, even if only relatively – and so you are confident, even if only relatively
–so you are also proud, even if only relatively.
  –And so these are the most important reasons for your happiness: free and confident pride, no matter how great or small.
  So, let’s try to remove these conditions now and see how well that works.
  Suppose ……
  If you are born poor – and the sin of poverty is not yours, and if you are born ugly – again the sin of ugliness is not yours.
ugly sin is not yours ……
  Where would your freedom be? Where will your confidence be? Where will your pride be? Where will your joy be?

  At the end of the day, you are still a black man, a black woman with “the ugliest smile in the world”, living in
in the most barbaric times of the black community in the New World.

  The Color Purple, 1985, screenplay adapted from the novel The Color Purple by Alice Walker, a black author.
The Colour Purple, directed by Spielberg, with Celie as the female lead, played by Whoopi Goldberg.
(Whoopi Goldberg as Celie.
  Spielberg’s name will be familiar to all of you. Aside from anything else, it’s the technique that brings all the shots, editing and soundtrack together.
I don’t think anyone can claim to be above Spielberg in terms of his skill in all the languages of cinema, including camera, editing and soundtrack (I hope that’s not controversial
I hope that’s not controversial – I don’t mean there’s no equal). The Purple is a film in which the natural language of cinema
The language of cinema is all over the place.
  However, the film’s release sparked a great deal of controversy in the critical world – almost a torrent of abuse, first from the old American
The “critics” and now the Chinese “film critics”. All the criticism was directed in two main directions: the glorification of black people
and the taboo subject matter. This brings us to a brief account of American cinema in the 1980s.
  The Purple was the first black film in the history of American cinema, and apart from the fact that almost all the main actors were black, the crew involved in the making of the film were also largely black.
In addition to the fact that almost all of the main actors were black, most of the crew involved in the film were also people of colour. I don’t need to elaborate on the issue of race in the United States.
For those who are interested, the 1992 Los Angeles riots will be clear.
The Colour Purple was completed in 1985. Similar to the taboo of the black subject in mainstream culture, incest and homosexuality are no different in the subject matter of the film.
There is no difference between the two.
  With this chronological background, we can leave aside the accusations of taboo in The Color Purple and return to the “glorification of blackness”.
We can put aside the accusations of taboo in The Color Purple and return to the “glorification of black people”. The first is that the portrayal of black life in The Color Purple is untrue.
Firstly, that the depiction of black life in The Color Purple is untrue and that “black people are too comfortable”; and secondly, that the happy ending in The Color Purple is a bit cheesy and at the same time “glorifies black people”.
Secondly, I think that the happy ending in The Color Purple is a bit cheesy and “glorifies black people” at the same time.
  Firstly, I believe that this accusation (“glorifying black people”) is itself racially motivated. With regard to the first of these accusations
The first of these accusations is the simple question: “Why can’t black people have houses and land?” Are black people in the United States
the most comfortable treatment in history has been “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”, just as they must live in slums today?
? Such a rhetorical question may seem a bit radical, but a little reading of American history (just two hundred years) shows that
The racial bias of critics who accuse the “glorification of blacks” is clear. The film tells the story of the early 20th century
The film tells the story of the early 20th century, when the United States was not yet fully industrialised, was still in a phase of “free competition” rather than “monopoly”, and was founded as a “compact” nation.
The United States, a nation of immigrants founded by “contract”, was itself a country whose vastness and wealth of resources left the “capitalists” with
The United States, as a “compact” country of immigration, itself left a great deal of opportunity to the “capitalists” with its vastness and wealth of resources. After the initial reclamation, the “ambitious capitalists” were busy in the cities “bleeding pus from their sweat pores”.
The “ambitious capitalists” were busy accumulating capital “by sweating pus out of their pores” and had no time to worry about establishing themselves in the city (as best exemplified by Gangs of New York).
) to establish themselves. So it was only natural to leave an idyllic space for the black man – and at the same time, when we put aside our prejudices about
America’s prejudices aside, we must admit that the “contract” America was indeed more tolerant than the “Europe of the time”, and that there were indeed plenty of opportunities, even if
There were plenty of opportunities, even if you were black, but only if you were a hard-working black man. In the film, the family of ‘Mister’ (Hilly’s husband) and Hilly’s family
and the small black community in which they live offers them more opportunities (the community has a lot to offer to black people).
The small community in which they live offers them more opportunities (community is important to black people, as will be mentioned later). Having briefly clarified this history, the
It is easy to see what is behind the attitudes of the critics who make such accusations against the film.
  The second accusation is professional, harsher and more meaningful than the first, and requires careful attention. The Purple I
The film tells a story that can be summed up in a single sentence – “A pair of black sisters are reunited after years of forced separation and forgiveness for their suffering.
the perpetrators of their own misery.” The story is about family and religion. These kinds of happy ending themes range from China’s
Nezha” to the American version of “The New Count of Monte Cristo”, there are countless films around the world that celebrate the power of family, love and friendship.
Why is it that the black man’s happy ending is the only one? Why is a happy ending for a black man problematic? If the black actors and the black stories were replaced with white stories, even if they were Jewish (or not), the film would have been a great success.
Would The Color Purple have been safe from the critics if all the black actors and black stories had been replaced with white stories, even if they were Jewish (Schindler’s List)? My answer
My answer is yes! This is perhaps too radical a question to ask oneself, and some may still maintain their opinion that Nezha has long been “feudal dross”.
is “feudal dross”, The New Count of Monte Cristo is even more haphazard, and Schindler’s List is not even close to that (there are
The New Count of Monte Cristo is even more of a falsification.) But what I want to say here is that the ending of The Color Purple has to be like this, and that is what makes the film truly and artistically fascinating.
It is for this reason that the film has a real and great artistic appeal.
  I will now examine the narrative of The Color Purple in more detail in order to answer the second accusation.
  
  The film begins. The two sisters clap their hands in the Purple Sisterhood. The tone already emerges as a sisterly love
The tone is already there: sisterhood, which expands to give rise to family, which continues to expand throughout the film (wait for me to say more).

  As the sisters play, they are rudely interrupted by their stepfather. The smile on her face while playing with her sister is still intact.
Her stepfather didn’t forget to comment, “You have the ugliest smile in the world.” Xili continued to giggle, when
She was 14 years old, pregnant with her stepfather’s child, and even more terrifying – she thought the man was not her stepfather but
biological father. A further sequence shows Hilly giving birth, attended by her sister Nandi, after which the baby is given away by her father (or more likely sold).
The baby is given away (or more likely sold) by the father. –This is followed by Hilly’s confession to God.
  Forgive me for giving too much emphasis and detail to this section, which is, critically speaking, the most crucial part of the film.

  What emotions does the “incest” sequence evoke in the audience when it is highlighted from the beginning of the film? Sympathy? Fear?
Disgust? Disgust? Disdain? Ridicule? …… applies the classic criticism of ‘feminist criticism’ (note: a school of Western criticism that cannot simply be equated with ‘feminism’), i.e. ‘reading a text through a female lens’, rather than the ever-present ‘reading’.
feminism), the classic critique of ‘reading texts from a female perspective’, without being misled by the ever-present ‘male perspective of the reader’, (leaving aside chastity).
(leaving aside the oppressive terms such as chastity and incest that men attach to women by virtue of their linguistic rights).
The conclusion that emerges is alarmingly simple (we won’t get into the philosophical side of things for now): a naked deprivation of dignity, a mocking deprivation of joy.
The naked deprivation of dignity, the denial of the right to be a Hili (the hope of beauty and pleasure) by ridicule and the denial of the right to be a Hili “human being” by violence
(both deprivations, the instrumentalisation of Hélène through lust, and even more so through the sale of her children), which comes from
“father” (the word ‘father’ has a great symbolic meaning, so let’s leave it there for now). The whole film
The foundations of the film are complete – an absolute (almost) deprivation of human dignity.
  At this point, I am presumptuous: if the emotions evoked by this opening sequence were merely sympathetic, the film would be a simple morality.
If the feelings evoked by the beginning of the film were merely sympathetic, then the film would be a simple moralistic sappy film with a happy ending; if the feelings evoked were disgusting and contemptuous, then
Spielberg and Auntie are too serious for you; it’s Wong Jing or Ai Iijima for you.
Spielberg and Auntie are too serious for you.
  Then Abbott, the “gentleman” who falls for Nandi, asks Hilly’s father to marry her and ends up marrying her. Such an ugly girl married
What is she for? To do things, to lust. Like her father, Mister has absolute control over Celie, beating her and scolding her.
He scolded her when he wanted to. By chance, Hei Li sees her child in the shop, but can only hug it.
(note the attitude of the white owner towards the black woman in this paragraph). Soon after, her sister Nandi flees to her sister’s place because she cannot stand her father’s harassment.
(note in this paragraph the attitude of the white boss towards the black women). But the two sisters know that they will not last long, as they both recognise their powerlessness in the face of their “father”, “Mr” and others.
Mr.” and others. So the two sisters prepare for the future – to become literate so that they can write letters when they are apart. The consequences are not unexpected.
As expected, after the attempted rape of Nandi, the two sisters are separated.
  Hilly continues to be deprived – the last, remaining, of her sister’s love. But once she can read, a letter from her sister becomes her
hope. Hilly succumbs to the ‘system’, as the book she and her sister read twice reads ‘…… becomes a victim of the system’.
The sacrifice”.
  If Alice Walker had simply told Hilly’s story, she would not have won the American Prize for Literature or the Pulitzer Prize for this book.
Likewise, if Spielberg had only told Hilly’s story, Alice Walker would not have been able to make the film.
What Alice Walker needed to tell was the story of her own ancestors. So Sophia came into the picture.
  A black woman of Hilly’s next generation, Sofia is violent and defiant at the same time. She is the son of Harpo (the son of Mr.
, but not born to Hilly) and defies not only Mr., but also Harpo. The stout Sofia does not only fight with her
She fights against all injustice not only with her fearless personality, but also with her fists and feet.
  However, the ‘institutionalised’ (a term much reviewed here in The Shawshank Redemption) Hilly is a bit overwhelmed by Sofia, and after Harpo’s attack on her wife, she is not able to take the blame.
When Harpo has nothing to do with Sofia, both Mister and Hilly encourage Harpo to conquer Sofia with his fists
The “system” is stable.
  Sofia is saddened to learn of this, and after telling Hilly of his belief in “lifelong resistance”, it triggers Hilly’s
What is her faith? God? Sister? Sofia’s struggle against the ‘system’ brings about her break-up with Harpo.
The break-up of Harpo.
  The next woman to appear has a direct impact on Hilly’s future. She is Chagall, the mistress of Monsieur, the mother of Harpo
She is a free and debauched (this word is not meant to be derogatory in any way, don’t get me wrong) woman. She is also a martyr of the “system”
She is also a martyr to the system, to her father and to her family. Hélène, out of her respect, envy, almost worship, for Chagall’s freedom and beauty, and the implicit sisterly love and admiration for her.
She begins to approach and care for the sick Charlotte out of respect, envy, almost admiration, for her freedom and beauty, and, implicitly, out of sisterly love and her own gentle kindness. The sadness shared by black women
The sadness that binds them together is that they are both ‘martyrs to the system’. The nursery rhymes that Hilly and Shaggy hum reveal
their common expectations – to be recognised, accepted and loved.
  But the men refuse to see this, and the old gentleman (the father of the gentleman) appears, small in stature but completely overwhelming the tall, lanky
He overwhelms the tall, lanky gentleman, and unscrupulously denigrates Shaggy in front of him. The young lady, who is fighting for Shaggy, retaliates in her own
This is another passage to be noted, for it is here that Hilly’s defiance begins. The Old Man
Mr. Old has a particular symbolic meaning – one could think of him as the embodiment of the “system” in this film. And how does Hei Li truly awaken?
How does Hee-ri truly awaken? Spielberg tells the story.
  Harpo builds a bar on the lake and immediately invites Shaggy to perform in it. It became a small festival for this
A small festival for the small black community – crowds of blacks come to the bar to party, the daughter is a frenzy of dance and jazz …… the father
And the father preaches a rousing sermon in church (Shagger’s father and daughter) ……
  At this point, we have to talk about something else for a moment. The German art historian Ernst Grosse
The German art historian Ernst Grosse once studied primitive art with a small book, The Origin of Art, in which he argued that the art of dancing had a strong social function – to maintain the tribe as a community.
It is argued that the art of dance has a strong social function – to maintain the unity and stability of a small group of tribes – and that dance is unlike any other art form (such as music, art and literature).
It is an art that was absolutely dominant in primitive societies and declining in civilised societies – that is, it became increasingly dominant in civilised societies.
–It is an art that has lost its social function in civilised societies, being replaced by sculpture (Greek era), painting (Renaissance), literature (Romantic era), etc.
(Greek era), painting (Renaissance), literature (Romantic era), etc. So what status should dance have for black people, a race with roots in primitive Africa?
What status should dance have for black people, a race with roots in primitive Africa? Jazz was born in the red-light district as nothing more than an aphrodisiac, but it was also born out of the black R&B, soul and dance music.
Black R&B and spirituals. The way black people feel about music and dance, and what music and dance give black people
The music and dance of the black man is not something that we can fully understand today with our own simplistic, if not crude, attitude. The art of the black
artist, which cannot be hastily equated with our pop superstars and which I can hardly present here in a few words, is the contemporary
The renowned American aesthete Richard Shusterman has done a remarkable aesthetic analysis and commentary on this, which the interested reader can
Readers who are interested can look it up for themselves. In conclusion, to sum it up in one sentence – namely, that Shagger, in his own way (music and dance), “preached” among the black
“preaching”, singing and pursuing love in a different way.
  The song “Sister” is a perfect illustration of Shaggy’s “Tao”. She dedicated it to Hilly in the Harpo Bar.
God had not given any revelation or love to Heeley before Charlotte. This song by Shagal, however, carries this
This song by Shagal carries this revelation and offers true love.
  What ensues is a bar fight, caused by Sofia. The scene portrays the consequences of Sofia’s rebellion against the “system” – although on the surface, it is not a good one.
The scene portrays the consequences of Sofia’s rebellion against the “system” – brave and fearless on the surface, but deeply sad deep down (look for it in the film). Hilly, on the other hand
is more or less transcendent: she takes the chaos of the black community for granted and enjoys it as a comedy because no one has been
No one has ever paid any attention to her as an “ugly woman”. But Shagga pulls her away.
  With her love for Hilly, Shagga awakens Hilly – a heartfelt tribute to her beauty as well as a physical love. When
When Xili begins to kiss and shyly and haughtily caress Xagar, as Mr. Lu Xun (it seems) said of “a beautiful woman like a flower, like water
The awakening of womanhood is complete, as Mr. Lu Xun (as it were) said of ‘a beautiful woman, like water’. The sorrowful Hei Li and the equally sorrowful Xia Ge are warmed by their own feminine gestures.
The story is a story of a woman who is a woman, who is a woman. …… I always thought that this was one of the most pure and beautiful scenes in the gay genre.
no longer holds her breasts, no longer hides her smile.
