地獄第十九層



罵人搞作﹐綜合我的見聞﹐大概不離幾招﹐一、私隱揭發;二、人身攻擊;三、公報私讎;四、大義滅親﹐《玩謝希特拉》難得統統做齊。讓人歎為觀止的﹐有戈培爾躲在辦公桌底﹐替女秘書「吹口琴」;還有希特拉被猶太藝術家引導﹐與家犬玩「後庭花」﹐為免防止虐畜會抗議﹐屁眼被進入的﹐當然是希魔﹐不會是那頭畜牲。希魔明明不舉﹐是無能用者﹐他自然是被「進入」的理想對象﹐這是當年逼害同性戀者的現眼報了 ---- 這大概是我見過最義正嚴詞﹐也是最法西斯的理由﹐去將希特拉綁起來鞭打了。

散場步離影院﹐我不禁疑心﹐拍攝這些電影的人兒﹐如斯暴民﹐這樣民粹﹐他們真與荷索、法斯賓達、茂瑙、舒倫道夫、畢列拿、路明尼加、碧根鮑華一樣﹐同屬那原來心智清明的優秀民族嗎?作者將希魔肆意羞辱﹐初時我誤會不過是丑化﹐聊博一燦又何妨呢﹐後來想想﹐作者根本無意將這位已故德國領袖﹐視作一個人來看待了。不將旁人當人﹐為博滿堂掌聲﹐還要將他拉到射燈下跪玻璃,又何異於那三年換二十個菲傭的港燦歌星?我常常覺得﹐自己充滿惡意(malice)而缺乏情感﹐我作為一個人的藝術層次﹐很難不相應下降﹐甚至要跌到地獄的最底層。

我們的<色﹐戒>作者最就說過了:『寫反面人物,是否不應當進入內心,只能站在外面罵,或加以醜化?時至今日,現代世界名著大家都相當熟悉,對我們自己的傳統小說的精深也有新的認識,正在要求成熟的作品,要求深度的時候,提出這樣的問題該是多餘的。』這不算什麼了不起的卓見吧﹐反智無疆界﹐《Downfall》依然無人問津﹐《竊聽者》還是好評如潮﹐以上大概仍不算是「多餘的話」。

John & Iggy & HK


I met John in Hong Kong in 1977. He was travelling with Sean, who was about two years old, and was on his way to meet Yoko in Japan. I was with David Bowie and Coco Schwab, his friend and PA, on our way back to Europe from Japan, after a rock tour of my stuff... A pair of elevator doors opened, and he stood in the hotel foyer, wearing a basketball jersey that was way too big, and he gave David a very big hug and a kind of laughing, greeting smile. I was surprised to see an English industry giant exhibit such warmth. Also to see him in a basketball jersey was super-cool (pardon my fandom).

We went to dinner a couple of times, the four of us, after Sean was in bed for the night. Also to a topless bar once, and once to tea at a snooty country club. He really knew how to sound off when he wanted to, and at each of the latter two destinations he rose to his feet to half-yell, half-chortle: "Have you ever heard of The Beatles?" when service was not forthcoming. I think he enjoyed this. I know I did.

春光映畫



呢套戲好悶﹐講東講西﹐淨係見的甘草演員走來走去﹐比清談一點鐘好些﹐但完全冇佈局﹐個導演成日遊離浪盪﹐但冇諗清楚想講乜﹐咁呢樣都係平常事﹐正時時下港燦青年導演通病。叫做偶有佳句﹐但比《妄想》差好多﹐因為劇本好差﹐對白唔係人講﹐個主角性格空過張之洞﹐後黎好似填充咁﹐夾埋拖埋佢失蹤卅年的老豆老母落水﹐又喊又盛﹐真係硬膠得很呀。你要講個偵探平凡笨實﹐咪學下Zodiac咁羅﹐一樣可以讓人悶中作樂架﹐可惜作者心大心細﹐對人性冇了解﹐又唔抵得悶﹐又要搞連場動作爆破﹐又要煞有介事講o的「金田一式」(重要係漫畫個隻)恩怨情仇﹐超﹐得出個結論﹐都不過係阿媽係女人。

我真係登城城悽涼呀﹐佢本人已經又戇居又蠢﹐你又叫佢做埋呢的又戇居又蠢的角色﹐咁佢咪又戇居又蠢乘2羅﹐咁盞人地咪重憎多佢兩錢重﹐你知的港燦心理變態﹐唔抵得的神童﹐成日想拉弓射大鵰﹐將的星之子一個二個射落黎﹐明明自己又貪心又笨實﹐又淨係識憎的又戇居又蠢的人架麻。你以為搵個又戇居又蠢的人﹐做個又戇居又蠢的角色﹐就等於perfect casting啦羊﹐我話畀你聽﹐係錯呀﹐城城真係做得好差呀﹐佢露晒底啦﹐你個角色寫到咁差﹐你等佢自己發揮﹐佢邊識先得架﹐佢真係戇拾拾咁照讀﹐偶然擺的歌星有型甫士﹐放下電﹐咁邊得架﹐咁邊夾架﹐你估佢係梁朝偉呀﹐佢無讀過訓練班架。

其實套戲係有細緻o的既位既﹐但都係縮頭龜﹐伸唔到個頭出黎﹐例如城城成日冒警﹐又被智叔鬧「白癡仔扮偵探」﹐佢咪自己都唔知自己做乜春羅﹐又唔係人(差佬)又唔係鬼(偵探)﹐咁你再講番佢身世之謎﹐都可以好感人架﹐都可以話係自我追尋架﹐都可以自圓其說到點解佢咁obsessed with單案架﹐都可以係一套別開生面既藝文偵探片架。先旨聲明﹐唔好話我爆橋呀﹐結局咪又係玩o的鬼影幢幢﹐「你見鬼呀」個家老本行﹐當然你可以好巴閉﹐話呢o的係high concept混合類型﹐真係出人意表呀﹐咁呢個咪係你失敗之處羅﹐失驚無神原來見鬼﹐你直頭係反科學﹐反文明﹐反進步﹐反社會﹐反民主啦(主角不停影相﹐是系統化搜集資料的工序)﹐張相不斷放大﹐就會見到鬼影﹐你撞著呀死鬼安東尼奧尼呀。
