Dependent Origination

Slumdog Millionaire

Posted on: January 24, 2010

昨天晚上看的。好看还是很好看,一直很揪心,一会儿笑一会儿又吓死了。很像city of god。

但是我对这个主题很有意见。爱情神话。但是爱情,尤其是电影里面这个setting里面的爱情,是人生的全部吗?是人生下来最为值得追求的东西吗?很显然在很多人脑子里面它是的,不然也不会有这样的电影主题的出现。看完我的印象最深的其实是他哥哥Salim。生存是贫民窟的小孩儿们最大的挑战。很多事情看似冷血,但是在生命受到挑战的时候,再谈道德未免强求。道德毕竟是活下来的人制定的。否则也不会有饿死事小失节事大这种教育。如果没有Salim一再做出的关键决定,这两个兄弟哪有命来谈,哪有爱情来追求。

同样的theme, 想到的是蜗居。只不过蜗居的人没有混得这么差,连温饱都要操心。他们只不过是想要比现在更好的生活。欲望打开了地狱之门。道德实在太苍白了,哪有管辖的能力,尤其是外加的。所以电影要这么拍,告诉所有的人,有一样东西,有一个欲望是可以带来快乐和满足的,不然我们每天都在干什么。

康德讲的moral laws within, 不知道是怎么进去的。anyway, 我觉得这个片子如果从哥哥的角度拍,会是一个给人更大冲击的social satire. 现在,是个melodrama set in changing times.
