关于男人的电影

将所谓的"法外之人"浪漫化,这是一个千古主题。关于男人,既然出钱制作、写剧本、拍电影的人一直都是男性掌权的行业,男性题材也是好莱坞电影的主流。

barb 问,我认为哪些是描写男性形象比较靠谱的电影,让我这种女权主义思想的观众看了不讨厌。 Melville 的那两部看过的,红圈和独行杀手,都算。Sergio Leone 的那些"面条西部片",不能再阳刚了,但却并不推销美国式的价值观,也挺好看。张彻那种毫不掩饰的男同武侠片,真是太有喜感了。我最喜欢林岭东拍的那种疲惫而 ambiguous 的中年男人,可惜他现在不拍了。
最近刚出一部叫做 The Hurt Locker 的电影,也是全男班的那种,被影评大力推崇。导演却是个女的,Kathryn Bigelow,九十年代以拍动作片著称。我记得第一次看见并爱上 Keanu Reeves 就是在她的电影 Point Break 里。这部片子符合"让人向往与同情的罪犯"与"男性之间的友谊"两个条件。

至于"值得同情/喜爱的罪犯"的电影么,很多啊很多。最著名的要算 The Godfather 系列了。黑帮电影至少从二十年代就有了,跟着当时的 pulp fiction 一起,浪漫化 gangsters。他们总是比好人抢眼得多。但是,其实在任何时代,坏人都比好人抢眼,例如 Othello vs. Iago。

As examples of interesting male images without caricatures of chauvenism, I would suggest both The Terminator and Terminator 2, both made by James Cameron, who was married to Bigelow briefly. He has made a lot more money than his ex-wife, but he is artistically much less accomplished than she.

啊,Terminator是James Cameron的作品?跟Titanic根本是两种风格。

听起来你不大喜欢John Woo的电影哦。

John Woo I liked when he was in HK, because he is so ridiculously and unabashedly ernest. He stopped being ernest when he came to Hollywood, so I stopped liking him.

就是因为 Terminator (第一集)我曾经很爱过 James Cameron 。他还拍过 Aliens (异型第二集,第一集是 Alien)也挺好看的。直到 Titanic 他突然自爆,我对他彻底失去一切兴趣和尊敬。很巧合的是,在 Titanic 之前,他的电影里的女主角和他在生活里对女人的口味都是性格坚强个性强烈的类型,但是从 Titanic 之后就完蛋了。
