世界已很亂 2

我唔係而家先講恐同一路講緊,你話我小事化大咩,我不嬲都大事小事乜都講餐飽㗎啦,講海豚同無聊嘢嗰陣又唔見有人投訴話過激,一講多啲恐同問題同涉及大偶像就出事,真係我呢排寫得特別差、定係?如果無人講啲咩,如果我講完人講啲咩之後無咩人講啲咩,基本上上兩篇唔會存在,而而家寫呢篇,本來可能響面書繼續以短例update,可能儲夠先擺過來,都可能唔擺,不過既然講開我就食住個勢講埋佢,趕客都一次過(雖然更希望唔妥的人嘗試了解)。

 

題外話講完,呢次講兩套最近重播嘅電影。第一套係《整蠱專家》:恐同(homophobic)、厭女(misogynist)「趣味」不只在無綫,電影隨處可見有過之而無不及隨時以更explicit方式出現,《整》對同性戀者和女性的暴力描繪一環接一環,父權暴力呢度唔多講,今次集中講對同性戀的負面渲染。例如周星馳戲內以直男角色扮有愛滋的gay來嚇邱淑貞,幽默感只有可能源自對同性戀(者)和愛滋病(者)的無知和欺壓,你覺得好笑就係你有事;呢啲似乎無傷大雅的「搞笑」技倆響好多好多類似嘅電影電視雜誌諸如此類 累 積 起來就很容易形成 普 及 的偏見,異性戀者也有患愛滋病的機會,有更多同性戀者 沒 有 愛滋病,為何往往要將兩者扯上關係,卻不負責任地從不給予正面論述 ?

 

另外一招電視電影最常用:疑似gay。邱淑貞響戲中對付李子雄的方法就是向他未來岳父報告他是gay、與男人有染,未來岳父因此不跟他有身體接觸;這樣代表,同性戀是使人反感的(好可能因為覺得有傳染病而不掂他),換著女婿外遇是女的,岳父會這樣反應嗎?無論演員的身體語言、表情幾comic,呢個場面有好笑的地方嗎?我們再看看《寶貝計劃》:成龍與古天樂被收銀員誤會是gay couple,就發姣起來裝是,1) 是gay couple有甚麼好笑;2) 繼續如此以camp stereotype描繪gay除不好笑外有何意思;你話,一次半次啫,NO,響同一套電影再來多次,吳彥祖客串的真gay角色亦是如此,而且一見靚仔(古天樂、謝霆鋒)便蜜峰見糖,1) 繼續典型化描繪;2) 即使你靚仔人地就鍾意㗎喇?成日講到gay男係男人都啱都會搞,同描繪「老處女」係男人都要一樣描繪得沒必要的髒;3) 第幾次講「斷背山」喇?

 

以下借Davey Wavey一段片:

 

一般膚淺的故事情況下,誰人是gay不是gay有甚麼好笑;試想像一個情節:角色A長得很西化,角色B以為她是西人,原來她是中國人,好笑嗎?當然,創意可以無限,趣味可以創新,一個笑話以gay身份作笑點、有gay stereotype未必offensive,也可以很witty,我們不常常以概化的國家笑話、職業笑話為樂嗎,但也有很多時候,我們不自覺原來所謂的趣味是來自無知或偏見,大家認真反省,別一味責怪別人「沒幽默感」或以為自己好有型咁彈來一句「Why so serious」。

 

或許有人覺得事事找來批真的serious了,但可知道,往往是這些不起眼的小事,漸漸種了歪傾向。我響度係咁講,亦唔係對整套戲的批判,不代表因為某問題而不欣賞《整蠱專家》一些好看之處,或否認《寶貝計劃》的製作水準和感人故事,即係我睇「向西村上春樹」啲文意識到對男女的投射問題,也可以為當中的政治隱喻讚好吧。同理反轉,The Smiths幾好聽都好,Morrissey的種族主義論調不用反思嗎;一個字又好,一句又好,有心又好無意又好,直接報導或被放大是成為公眾人物的副作用,不代表言論本身沒問題。而我一直的議題也是言論本身,沒有因一次失言便質疑鄧萃雯整個人,也沒有標籤她為恐同份子,那不代表言論本身和她沒有偏見,人因種種原因有偏見很自然,自己未必察覺,沒有惡意不是避得成的原因。John Galliano酒後亂語得賠上厚職和負 法 律 責任啊,你估真係「言論自由」、「個人想法」、「尊重信仰」、「無對錯」咁簡單?

《奪命金》

YouTube comment @12141312: 「不知為何, 任何以前TVB的甘草演員, 在杜sir的電影中都好像…經過 “電鍍" 般, 特別 “發光發亮"!」

@tlcwrain replies: 「yesyes! 連胡杏兒都變得不一樣!so lucky for her to be in 杜導’s film, 期待啊~」

胡杏兒響《奪命金》係唔係OKAY先,TVB演員係唔係唔係垃圾先,導演編劇加高層係唔係要檢討先!唔係話出色到要喊,起碼唔似《萬凰之王》睇到你要嘔,唔係第一次,TVB演員出到去拍戲即刻「識演」,唔識演嘅時候我地又應怪邊個?

返來電視睇睇《天與地》,佘詩曼智障都演到深層角色,證明爾淳仲響度。Cast & crew,crew & cast,真係「夾band先夾人」,麻煩無綫唔好嘥晒啲人!

HKFA 2011

I did watch the HK Film Awards, and you know, this year is indeed better. But it’s not exactly better because it’s better, it’s better because it includes a lot of old clips and stories, it evokes a lot of memories of what we consider a “good time". Which is sad, because we always have to depend on the past to taste what’s good, meaning the current scene is nothing good. It’s very obvious for the music industry. Why do old song concerts sell well – just because of a large old audience?, why do new singing contestants choose old songs – they are young! to show skills? – why do old songs show skills and new songs don’t?, what happens to the current scene why aren’t there some memorable songs that everyone in all ages know by heart and feel connected? We remember the past, we pay tribute, we respect and mention them from time to time, that’s a good thing; but when that’s the only thing that we can treasure and appreciate, we’re in a dangerous situation when the contemporary sucks, and we should be very careful of what to do and what we make.

Anyway. I like to see the old faces that were young, the faces that’re gone. Sorry that I don’t have time to make screen caps. Leslie Cheung, Maggie Cheung, Anita Mui, Tony Leung… they’re all great to look at — OK they’re not all in heaven but not personally in the ceremony that night. It’s lovely to see their clips still. Forget about Jackie Chan. Why is he just so there and so mentioned every time. Uh.

I don’t really have much to say, haven’t watched most of the movies. Let me talk about the website. Remember that the real (official) one doesn’t look like a real one? You know, I found an official-looking one: Tudou. So comprehensive, even a convincing layout. It sounds ironic and pathetic, but that’s why Hong Kong needs piracy. Don’t complain.




I’m impressed with 薩頂頂 and 吳青峰’s music and performance. They finally invited someone who can sing.


Film Awards

you know every year i’m excited to watch the Oscars.

cos everyone’s like all so glamorous and smart and nice clothes and great funny presentations and speeches

there may be moments when you find it too presentable and faking to be politically correct and when you don’t like a prize going to some film

but overall you enjoyed the show cos it’s entertaining and professionally made

 

 

AND THEN every year the HK FILM AWARDS come AFTER

and you don’t really anticipate anything

cos you’ll be disappointed and embarrassed

and you go so pissed. do we have a nicer place for an important event? can the camera view be better? have they practised their speech? are they copying the oscars montage again? why can’t anyone sing? where do those performers come from? why are inside jokes so inside that nobody understands? can someone say grand ideas besides thanking their mentors?

and then you’re like idontcomefromhongkongidontcomefromhongkongidontcomefromhongkong

but then

well, this is your place. and there are sweet moments in the ceremony. there are lovely people. and every year, though vainly, you just wish that it will be better next year.

just hoping. we don’t know what comes this year yet!

and speaking of third world, HKFA does a better job than TVB:

i mean i can’t even believe. if you find something that looks more like an official website, please let me know.

ip MAN

if it wasn’t on TV tonight i doubt if i’d watch it at all. seriously, how many MORE of these movies do we NEED?
