Donnie Darko

以下, 可能有微量剧透.

*******************possible Spoiler warning*******************

昨天晚上战战兢兢看完了这个片子…并不是恐怖片, 但整个片子有一种压抑的悬疑气氛, 色调浓暗, 外加一只世界上长相最恐怖的巨型兔子.

Donnie Darko是一个神经质的高中学生, 有长期梦游和幻觉(看到某只非常可怕的带着骷髅鬼面的人型巨兔Frank)的毛病而不得不靠药物和心理治疗来抑制病情. 兔子Frank向他预言了世界的终结, 告诉他自己从未来而来. Donnie因此而对Time Travel和人的命运走向充满了兴趣……

这是一个难以形容的片子, 时刻让人困惑, 处处仿佛充满了暗示, 令人若有所思但是细想却毫无头绪. 到最后, 似乎终于恍然大悟了, 但是却有更多的纷乱想法涌出来…仿佛无限的未知, 无限的可能性. 片尾难以说清是蕴含着希望和解脱的还是流露出宿命论似的悲哀. 从某个角度来说的最佳总结也许就是片尾的歌曲”I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad, the dreams in which I’m dying, are the best I’ve ever had”.

几年后在Brokeback Mountain里出演Jack的Jake Gyllenhaal在这里演那个少年Donnie. 非常出色, 少年的青涩, 困惑, 固执, 逆反, 挣扎和本性的温柔善良, 梦游中的失控, 浑浑噩噩, 实在非常出色. 他是个古怪的少年, 平常显得有些畏畏缩缩, 但是常在意想不到的时候有坚持和爆发. 他告诉他心仪的女孩自己的名字, 女孩说:What kind of name is that? Sounds like a superhero or something….(原句可能有差异) Donnie答道: What makes you think I’m not (a superhero)? 呵呵, 小男生真是帅呆了:)

最后强烈推荐一下片尾的歌: Tears for Fears的Mad World (后来CSI中也用过)

  All around me are familiar faces
  Worn out places, worn out faces
  Bright and early for their daily races
  Going nowhere, going nowhere
  And their tears are filling up their glasses
  No expression, no expression
  Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
  No tommorow, no tommorow

    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I’m dying
    Are the best I’ve ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    ‘Cos I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    It’s a very, very
    Mad world, mad world

  Children waiting for the day they feel good
  Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday
  Made to feel the way that every child should
  Sit and listen, sit and listen
  Went to school and I was very nervous
  No one knew me, no one knew me
  Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson
  Look right through me, look right through me

    And I find it kind of funny
    I find it kind of sad
    The dreams in which I’m dying
    Are the best I’ve ever had
    I find it hard to tell you
    ‘Cos I find it hard to take
    When people run in circles
    It’s a very, very
    Mad world, mad world
