“Revolutionary Road” deleted ending: Dear Frank...

Dear Frank

Dear Frank, whatever happens, don't blame yourself, i love you.

赴台湾嘉义作【深度采访之旅】前,终于观赏了《Revolutionary Road》,遗憾 Kate Winslet 非凭此片角逐奥斯卡影后并胜出;当然,她在《The Reader》的演出亦上乘所以我执意认为金球奖的双赢肯定一点也不过誉^_^),只是《RR》既没有老妆的情绪演化加持,也没有史实争议的道德思辩元素助势,即可单纯以写实的婚姻残酷面相,凝聚支线的张力,演出者居功至伟!从爱恋时期的优雅绚丽,到对抗现实的满腹憧憬,再到思绪自囚的歇嘶底里,乃至终场教人不寒而栗的回光返照,都是发酵式的好戏味。

看罢随DVD附录的【删减镜头】,我尤其对如下【留字条】一幕感到揪心:


这是【忠于原著】的结局,惟 April 究竟是【有意寻死】所以预写遗言;或孤注一掷而【做好最坏打算】却意外身亡,仍存在一定辩解。


John Givings:
Hopeless emptiness. Now you've said it.
Plenty of people are onto the emptiness, but it takes real guts to see the hopelessness.
