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


In star k alien, there is a passage about the fate of the universe: “it will collapse into a point, and then expand again, so it will start again and again. When the universe expands again, everything will repeat itself. The mistakes you have made will repeat themselves, again and again, forever.” This statement has some fatalistic meaning, because if this theory holds, we don’t know whether our life is the premiere of zero or the replay of CCTV6. But if you assume that you are facing the original life, this theory is of great positive significance. Obviously, at this time, we muster up the courage to make the right choice and try our best to make up for everything we have done wrong, so as to avoid guilt and guilt, gnawing at the already painful soul again and again in the vortex of time.

If the legend of Sisyphus is the key to interpret the plot of the film, then this passage from star k alien can be used as the best footnote of the film. In the setting of “cycle”, the two are similar. More similarly, with the understanding of the plot, the two are also consistent in the warning of “don’t make mistakes”. But in “K star alien”, the doctor summoned up the courage to finally communicate with his son, and everyone was happy; In this film, Jess tries to make up for the image of “fierce mother” in front of her son, but she can’t finish it. One positive and one negative complement each other.

In order to support the above conclusion, the following is the understanding of the plot. There are a lot of analysis in this regard. Follow the trend and repeat as follows.

1. About the cycle on the “two” Jess and Aeolus ships

Anyone who has seen this film will know that the ship will always maintain the state of these three jesss. According to the statement of Hua orange, they are named boarder, lurk and man in black (I don’t think the statement of masked man is accurate enough). When the “man in black” was knocked off the ship by the boarder, the other four were dead. At this time, there will be a scene of five people calling for help at sea. Then five people get on board, and a new “boarder” appears, and the original “boarder” and “Lurk” automatically enter the next state. And so on and on.

However, we will also notice that the first “boarder” Jess encountered something different from the second “boarder” Jess (at this time, the last Jess became a “Lurk”). The first “man in black” Jess met was always wearing a hood. Finally, he stood and was cut into the sea by an axe. This “man in black” is kind. At least he hesitates to kill himself. Jess, the second boarder, met the last “Lurk” and had the experience of being pointed at by herself with a gun. The “man in black” she met was cold and had sharp edges. Downey and Sally were finally knocked down on the ship by the “boarder” with an iron bar and pushed into the sea. At this time, the “man in black” had his head cover removed.

The situation they met was different, which was not a bug, but showed the more ingenious side of the film setting. Jess, who is always tracked by the film lens, met the “man in black” who took the lead and finally became the “man in black” who took the lead. The film shows a complete process, from boarding to being beaten off the ship. But it doesn’t show everything that happened on board. More precisely, the film shows only about three-quarters of what happened on the ship, lacking the formation process of the cold “man in black”.

A more reasonable explanation is that after boarding the ship, Jess will have two different development directions, respectively becoming a “kind man in black” and a “cold man in black”, and then being knocked off the ship. The “boarder” will eventually become the “man in black” when boarding, which is a strictly corresponding process. At this time, the “Lurk” sandwiched in the middle will become another type of “man in black” in the next stage. In a relatively simple description, “kind people in black” and “cold people in black” alternate, ABAB cycle. The formation process of each “man in black” is strictly copied.

The reason for this divergence, especially the emergence of the “cold man in black”, is the influence of the “stalker”. The most obvious is the scene in the movie where Jess points a gun at Jess. The performance in that paragraph was wonderful. Jess, the “boarder”, has a rich expression when facing himself with a gun. He is shocked and stunned… The viewer can taste it carefully. We noticed that Jess, who followed the camera more, didn’t even know that the “man in black” was himself during the period when he became a “Lurk”. Jess, the second boarder, can judge that the black killer is another self very early through the above-mentioned lens and the death of his companions behind him, and he realized this crazy cycle earlier. She hopes to jump out of the cycle and return to her son. The earlier despair comes, the more likely madness will happen. For the formation of “cold man in black”, the film is a false stroke, which also makes the film dizzy – a main plot is omitted. But if they all show up, the film will lose a lot of suspense. In fact, this process is also difficult to show, and the character change is really great. This not only avoids the difficulties, but also leaves the audience imagination space, making it more attractive. The film director is the same person. He is really a God and man.

In short, Jess has two development directions after getting on the ship. He becomes two different people in black and gets off the ship. These are two independent and interactive processes. Two development lines and three states. If everything that happens on the ship is divided into modules, it needs to be divided into six pieces, each with a different Jess. The most interesting thing is that the process from boarding to getting off the ship is strictly copied every time it occurs. In addition, there is no bug in the plot of the ship. There are no bugs at all. The details fit perfectly. I hereby thank the editor and director again.

2. About “clearing”

In the process of “Circulation”, some are “cleared”, such as theater’s body and hall body with food. Some are accumulated, such as Jess’s message, the necklace at the bottom of the boat, Sally’s body and pigeon’s body. This can only be said by a bean friend (I’m sorry to forget who it is). Under the influence of Jess, there will be specific (or insignificant) things that will not be cleared. It can be used as a setting for the movie.

3. About the starting point of the cycle

I think it’s after the car accident at the end of the film. Because what happened to Jess in the center of the camera before was logical (plus a circular hypothesis), but after the accident, she looked at the scene of the accident unharmed. Jess in the trunk bag came out and the bag was gone. If it’s just a car accident, the body can’t come out of the bag so easily. Jess took all her memories to the taxi and the boat. After taking a nap on the boat, she lost most of her memories, only a little deja vu (deja vu). Some people think that this place should be the starting point. I don’t think so. This is a well explained plot. The “depression” theory of psychological defense.

4. Ultimate plot

The biggest confusion in the film is Jess’s appearance after the car accident. She was not injured at that time. I understand the plot is like this. The day before yesterday, Jess was invited by Greg to take her son to the boat the next day. Before leaving, she lost her temper with her son again (it’s well understood that this is not the first time. Children with intellectual problems are really tormenting). Then she drove her son to the boat with a flower skirt. She and her son died in a car accident on the way. After her death, she remembered her attitude towards her son and felt very guilty. She made a deal with the God of death (this plot, the introduction of theism is normal). She wanted to see her son apologize and compensate, and then came back. As a result, she deceived death, and was punished and entered the sisyphusian cycle of suffering. In fact, she can jump out. Just before boarding the boat, the taxi driver said to Jess, “I don’t stop the meter. Will you come back?” But Jess didn’t come back. She still hopes to go back to the ship and experience everything, and then come back to change everything. It’s just a pity that she lost her memory on the ship, so all the tragedies happened again. The taxi driver is actually death.

This explanation is a bit dog blood, but given the pivotal role of Sisyphus legend in the play. We will find its rationality by comparison. The story of Sisyphus is described in Wikipedia as follows (in fact, Sally probably said one sentence in the play):

Sisyphus is famous for his cunning and wit, which made him hoard a lot of wealth. When he felt that tanatos, the God of death, was about to come, he deceived tanatos and asked him to put handcuffs on himself. As a result, no one on the earth entered the kingdom of Hades, and people stopped sacrificing Hades. Zeus ordered Ares, the God of war, to go to Sisyphus and release tanatos. Tanatos immediately took away Sisyphus’s soul. Before his death, Sisyphus asked his wife not to sacrifice to the king of Hades. Hades and Persephone could not sacrifice. Sisyphus hoped that the king of Hades would return to the world and ask his wife to sacrifice and then come back. However, Sisyphus did not return to the underworld according to the agreement, which angered Hades. Hades sent tanatos to take Sisyphus’s soul.

Because he was too cunning, he was sentenced to push the big stone up a steep mountain. Every time he tried his best, when the big stone was about to reach the top, the stone would slip out of his hand and have to push it back again to do endless work.

Sisyphus did not return because he did not fulfill his promise to death. Jess’s answer to the taxi driver was “yes”. Therefore, the above plot can make sense. Basically, Jess’s experience is the modern version of Sisyphus legend, which is faithful to the original interpretation. Returning to the so-called “meaning” at the beginning of this article, it is easier to understand. The mistakes made are irreparable, especially some things. Once they are wrong, they can’t redeem themselves. When you are alive, you should be cautious and be kind to yourself, but also to your relatives and friends.

This film is undoubtedly the best suspense work of 2009. Although the author’s film viewing was limited in 2009, the film level was not inferior to muhran road. The obscurity was low. It was obvious to all viewers, and the best film in 2009 deserved it.
