Begin Again 一切從音樂再開始


如果沒有看"Once",感覺會否不一樣?就是和"Once"的感覺相距甚遠。原來已經是六年前看的電影了,再看一次自己寫的,看來那時不算十分喜歡此片,只是感覺深刻。不過這回"Begin Again"就沒有那種感動了。至少那次OST是非買不可,這次是不會買。Keira Knightley的歌聲不太悅耳吧。

或許當年就是兩個非專業演員加上陌生的愛爾蘭,和好些非常動人的音樂,給人的那份純樸感覺是"Begin Again"完全沒有的。Keira Knightley加Mark Ruffalo都是大家熟悉的面孔了,他們都有點角色定型,雖然這次二人都有點離開以往的角色,尤其是Keira,但就失去了那種味道。

I'm back

Really got to update here again ^_^

It's been a hectic year, well since the end of March, so it's been some crazy 7+ months. Mum is sick, and yes my world turned upside down, and I hope I can make it... and of course we all hope she will get better (well everyone worries about me, sometimes as much as we worry about mum). I'll try to be strong and tough. 

I asked a long-time friend: what would you do if your parents have a year to live? He said: maybe I'll quit my job. Huh... how come I still have the urge to change job? God, I must have been crazy... (my friend is in the States while his parents are in hk though) Can you believe I went to two interviews on the same week when my mum was in the hospital? (She had treatment at the hospital and had to stay there for a few days or so) I wish I could quit my job... Guess I won't be that lucky to win mark 6 so soon though...

And there are other things happening this year too, but none is as overwhelming as the health of my mum of course.

I'll still watch films and go to film festivals if time allows, and also write something here after viewing.

Life is tough but it goes on. I'll try my best.

這兩星期都沒閒暇更新,都在個人的fb(not maddoggish)及twitter上接收及分享比較多,心情由熱血、憤怒、憂心、不忿、傷心、放心(正如練乙錚所說)等等都經歷過。金鐘、銅鑼灣和旺角都踏足過,感動過。

Life of Riley / Aimer, boire et chanter (愛吧醉吧唱吧)






The Hollywood Reporter
The Double (盜面專師)

原來2011年有一齣由Richard Gere擔演的The Double,沒多印象。這回有點是給簡介騙了入場。不算失望,主要演員也令人滿意,導演成功凝造氣氛及風格,令人留下印象,不過不算非常出色。


Rotten Tomatoes有82%

On the Guardian
Fading Gigolo (情迷出租男)

不是Woody Allen導演的電影,不過由他擔綱演出,結果是頗為失望。自編自導自演,原來不是首次。幽默元素是有的,不過算合格,娛樂性也不缺

Rotten Tomatoes只有很低的54%。

以前對周星馳的片沒有太討厭, 港式無厘頭始終源於他,不過這種無厘頭不是可以隨意加插在電影中,知道九把刀很喜歡周星馳,不過片中太多的無厘頭變得胡鬧荒謬兼無聊,個人實在頂唔住。

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him / Her 她消失以後 / 離開他以後


正是因為Summer IFF這兩齣電影有搶飛現象,我這個趁熱鬧心態的電影節粉絲便也來買票,怕「執輸」。導演作品不多,這回是正式第一/二齣長片,是勇敢,也是熱誠。作為長片首作蠻不錯,也值得進場一看,不過這個有點創意的故事手法,應該可以有更好更感動人的效果。


對飾演男主角Conor的印象不太深,看過他的演出有Atonement, Becoming Jane及The Last King of Scotland。女主角(Eleanor Rigby)樣貌不算漂亮,不過勝在夠瘦削,且演此角很合適,我只看過The Tree of Life,不過對她沒印象。兩人都演得不錯。

"Eleanor Rigby"本是The Beatles於1966年的一首歌曲,主要由Paul McCartney創作,不過credited to Lennon–McCartney。電影中不少Eleanor Rigby及The Beatles的影子。

喜歡兩個主角的家人的故事線,當然不能忽視Isabelle Huppert一角,見她杯不離手一幕又一幕,真羨慕(haha)。



Rotten Tomatoes有100%

讀馬家輝的明報副刊文章談到剛猝死的曾澍基,提到他自己和曾先生也一樣,喜歡工作後回家前喝點酒 --「但更多的時候是獨自去,慣了快樂時光,享受在回家晚飯以前小喝一杯... 白天是工作的,晚上是家人的,在黑夜貿白天的轉折點上,有那麼六十分鐘屬於自己,不應算是奢侈而只是最起碼的自愛。」

是日為美國National Soft Serve Icecream Day,雪糕車,有哪個小孩子不喜歡?多年來都覺得雪糕車賣的軟雪糕又軟又滑,有其獨特的味道,炎炎夏日在街上見到都難以抵擋。

記得Harry Pottter中一演員Rupert Grint,兩年前便買了一架雪糕車,免費送雪糕給孩子吃,多麼有創意又有意義。
