10 Memorable Film Moments/Quotes of 2009

Marion Cotillard in Public Enemies Amy Adams in Sunshine Cleaning Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deschanel in 500 Days of Summer Sharlto Copley in District 9 Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Boat that Rocked
Edith Scob & Juliette Binoche in Summer Hours Melanie Laurent in Inglourious Basterds Elmar Wepper & Hannelore Elsner in Cherry Blossoms Carl & Ellie in Up Tokyo Sonata - Ending Scene

2009年观赏的好片不少,惟大部分乃属2008年甚至更早之作;反正到头来无论是片商迟引进而没能同步看,抑或须等到购得正版光碟才如愿观赏,至少【没错过】也就【不枉苦等】了。有些电影虽然整体上乘,却未必有【爆点】;反之,有些电影纵使整体不济,却或许得以靠【单幕】捞取印象分,以下综合分享依据美国2009年映期,而我也如愿在同年内观赏,其中十幕让我留下深刻印象的【电影情节】,并引用部分源自 IMDb 资料库的精句,以及辑录个人于2009年撰写的影话作回顾。

Billie Frechette: They say you're the man who shot him.
Charles Winstead: That's right. One of 'em.
Billie Frechette: So why are you coming to see me? To see the damage you done?
Charles Winstead: No. I came here because he asked me to. When he went down, he said somethin'. I put my ear next to his mouth, and what I think he said was this. He said, 'Tell Billie for me: Bye bye, Blackbird.'
[Billie starts to cry as Winstead gets up to leave]

【盗亦有道】的 John Dillinger 对同僚讲义气,谈情说爱虽狂妄而偏执但情深意重。他对法印混血女子 Billie Frechette 一见倾情,为她披上温暖皮草一刻起,坚信她会是追随他浪迹天涯的红颜。他不隐瞒盗行,用诚挚解答女方的疑惑;明知警方用爱人作饵,也在她哀求别再见面之际,守诺试险;目睹爱人遭强行拘捕而无力援救,流露铁汉柔情;中弹倒地,更在咽下最后一口气前,以定情之舞的曲名【Bye bye, Blackbird】遗话诀别。全片的最佳印记点,就是【奥斯卡影后】这一幕【狱中泪崩】的终场演出。——[延伸阅博]

六零年代的西方世界,是一个人人为音乐疯狂的时代,摇滚乐的放浪狂妄精神,仿似全民心灵渴望自由的求呼;一艘常年于公海上飘荡的船舶,建立了一个24小时不间断广播的【海盗电台】,一群热爱音乐的【革命份子】赢尽民心,把当时的英国【保守派】政要气得牙痒痒,时刻部属铲除大计。Philip Seymour Hoffman 饰演的 The Count 是领军人物,上述【片段】挑衅意味的【精句】,乃片中一幕其意图透过大气电波爆粗的【道理】,虽乖张却值得深思。

[He leaves. Shosanna lets out a sigh of relief and starts crying]

Au revoir 是德文,【再见】的意思。侥幸逃过纳粹军官乱枪残杀的小女孩,拔腿往草原拼命狂奔,冷血军官举抢瞄准犹太小女孩后脑勺,那是影片教人屏息的前戏;但最终军官并没发弹,只是释出阴险笑脸,叫嚷:“Shosanna,再见!” 后来,小女孩长大了,于餐厅【再见】狂妄的军官,只能佯装镇定陪吃甜点,战战兢兢应对试探,与杀亲仇人短兵暗战后,仇恨悲痛随泪决堤……

Up - Ballons

Ellie: [her last message to Carl] Thanks for the adventure. Now go have one of your own.

Pixar 出品的【小事物大感动】总适度拿捏喜感和愁情,而那才是真正让人【笑着感动】的功力。虽说【死亡情节】在动画作品似乎被视作【禁忌】,但《Up》的开篇即已赚人热泪,主戏的欢趣是调和,让末章的释然情怀更添暖意。属于 CarlEllie 的【冒险记】始于小危房,两人情感的萌芽肥料中有一粒【蓝气球】,从 Carl 卧床养伤到 Ellie 病卧在床,每每蓝气球缓缓飘近,全身即起鸡皮疙瘩。
