The Usual Suspects 1995

Joseph選的戲。雖然我看戲也算雜,但每個人始終有特定喜愛和不太喜歡的片種,像我就不知何故,至今仍不太懂欣賞「千億劫案,猜猜誰是罪犯」的戲情,偏偏荷里活卻最擅長生產此類電影,每次我都捺著性子迫自己看,然後被一大堆人名地名支離破碎的劇情弄得昏昏欲睡。當然,自己的英文不好也是主因之一,很多對白都只看懂7成,估下估下又眼訓。

於是,我很清楚,我不懂欣賞這部電影,是我的錯。我會重看這套電影,然後終有一天我會懂得欣賞這部電影的。

PS 此類電影,Last Scene才是精華呀!Last Scene拿捏得不好,足以毀掉整部電影。一直不太清楚發生甚麼事的我,直到Last Scene才有眼前一亮的清爽感覺,然後電影就完結了…… :(
PS 2 呢套戲一爆雷就玩完。都係自己睇吧啦。(雖然以我殘缺不全的記憶也爆不到甚麼雷)
