Dead Poets Society(1989) - 借詩說教

是否巧合這部電影出現在中國八九民運的一年?學生地下組織,憑藉著啟蒙帶來的思潮,以自由的心靈、澎湃、無法抑壓的熱情,對抗權力,校權、父權、學術權威、社會制約、內化的恐懼,統統打破,甚至放逐、禁言、威迫,種種打壓也紛紛呈現,那種單純和率直相信在那個年代感動了很多香港人,讓它成為心中最重要的一部電影,在這個時候重溫當然亦不過時。

春風化雨為電影名字簡直是絕配,以簡潔的成語佔據經典外,四字跟本就分別總結了起承轉合。而原名亦有相似的意義,詩人與社會(學會),而打頭陣的是警語︰死亡。

劇中的非常教師不知有多原創…但近呢十幾年就有很多有關非常老師的影視作品,但就沒有一個有這樣的中庸。這是非常特別的,老師沒有充當頭目或捨身取義的角色,在教學以外他一向是比較被動,他沒有替學生出頭、沒有與權威死拼,他就只是春風化雨,作為中介,他鼓舞學生,也警戒學生。

社會、學校、家長都沒有因這個老師甚至學會中的學生而立即倒下,波瀾過後似乎有點無力。因為這正如老師在社會中的角色,不是將今天扭轉,而是為明天栽培希望。那些充滿激情的學生因為挫折、衝動而倒下,這是老師所不欲見的,他曾勸戒過一個學生,而學生反問他的立場時,他回答︰

There is a time for daring and there is a time for caution. And a wise man understands which is called for.

2014 Richard Linklater Film Festival - Day 5 - Tape

Richard Linklater’s Tape is a riveting drama with sensational performances from its three-member cast. Describing the film’s story line provides a troublesome dilemma, though. How does one entice film fans to see the terrific indie feature without giving away too much? 366 more words
