二十世纪

在今年为应对COVID-19大流行而实施的封锁中,为数不多的一线希望之一是有机会进行广泛的自我反省。在美国课堂上经常被视为理所当然的历史神话已经被颠覆,而我们自身的变革能力也受到了前所未有的考验。也许没有哪个国家的讽刺作品比加拿大更适合这段漫长的时期。在今年的艾美奖上,加拿大的净化灵魂的情景喜剧《Schitt’s Creek》(第六季,也是最后一季)打破了纪录尤金征税。作为21世纪的SCTV ALUM旋转哈罗德。拉米斯“经典电影,”土拨鼠日该剧讲述的是享有特权的家庭成员在失去财产后被迫住在廉价汽车旅馆里的故事。只有在经历了一系列炼狱般的羞辱之后,这些角色才开始进化成更好的人,而他们新发现的人性也以令人放下戒心的真诚被刻画出来。当然,个人的救赎要比整个国家的救赎容易马修·兰金在迷人的超现实的首次亮相特色“二十世纪”,“加拿大身份的令人钦佩和经常融合的方面”令人眼花缭乱的聪明才智。无论一个人的下落还是对伟大的白北方的知识,观众都会发现这种可怕的寓言感到不安,因为世界摇摆在极端崩溃的边缘。

Though the film is ostensibly about the early years of William Lyon Mackenzie King that preceded his three non-consecutive terms as Canada’s prime minister, it is less of a biopic than a daydream had by a bored high school student in history class, as his thoughts heedlessly shift toward far more diverting memories of Monty Python. To those unschooled in his legacy, King may seem like an odd choice for ridicule, considering he successfully led his nation through World War II while forming crucial social welfare programs. However, a closer look at his life reveals numerous eccentricities—his lack of social skills, his status as a potentially closeted bachelor, the influence of séances on his political decisions—and more than a few potentially catastrophic blind spots. He failed to take the Great Depression seriously, disliked President Roosevelt’s New Deal, barred Chinese immigrants and Jewish refugees from entering his country and even predicted in the 1930s that Adolf Hitler would one day be considered a hero on the order of Joan of Arc. “He is really one who truly loves his fellow-men, and his country, and would make any sacrifice for their good,” King naively wrote in his journal, assuming he could help guide Hitler, and Germany as a whole, to a place of peace. This staggering level of hubris affirms that the prime minister had his head at least partially lodged in the clouds, which makes this film’s aesthetic drenched in heightened artifice entirely appropriate.

受疼痛的漏洞表示国王在自己的日记,“二十世纪”的令人目眩的门户到政治家的潜意识,铸造真实的人从他的生活角色虚构或复合材料,圣女贞德一样国王本人重塑希特勒。例如,业余体育爱好者明托勋爵(Lord Minto)在这里变成了武藤勋爵(Lord Muto, Sean Cullen, channel)吉姆罗德;在“红磨坊),一个可怕的独裁者,对他希望消灭的南非布尔人撒出仇恨的谎言,声称他们是半人半象的。兰金和韦克菲尔德博士(凯陈),导演的邪恶性格在电影的TIFF首映录取灵感来自于约翰哈维凯洛格的涉嫌计划,他的流行玉米片谷物预防其消费者免于自慰。国王的性羞辱和镇压,可能被他对他所指定的州长普及的感情推动的,这是一位脚下的恋物癖,威胁要成为“危害国家尊严罪”。韦克菲尔德在国王的生殖器上造成了闹钟,这将在他被引起时听起来会听起来,导致众多被整形的集合件之一。正如令人垂道疑的搞笑所描绘的那样丹Beirne在美国,金给人的印象是一个任性的妈妈的儿子,他完全没有头绪,总是把竖琴错当成小号。他使一个生病的女孩振作起来的想法(轧光斯佳丽Montaz当她咳出血时,他会递给她一块薄薄的手帕。

这幅画的每一帧都是荒诞主义的杰作,包括表现主义的布景、命运多舛的木偶和射出的仙人掌。不仅电影的压缩长宽比和老式的视觉效果保证了与加拿大同行的工作远见家伙Maddin,Rankin还指甲是庆祝的电影制片人的独特狂风,讽刺和唠叨忧郁症。在真正的Pythonesque的形式中,各种各样的演员都被击败了性别,包括频繁的Maddin合作者Louis Negin作为国王的母亲,他的嘲笑古怪的喧嚣将在俯瞰宾馆贴身到237室。DANY BOIVIN.在浪漫的冰流动到荒凉的山丘上,在从浪漫的冰流动到荒凉的山丘上,艺术方向醒目。Whether this imagery is meant to represent the “North Atlantic triangle,” which notes the dependency of Canada on strong relations with the U.K. and U.S. (and may have spurred the country’s support of British oppression during the Second Boer War) is left up to one’s interpretation. Of course, such a scholarly approach to describing this picture fails to convey just how funny it is throughout, especially when the characters’ antics are at their most ridiculous. One of the film’s funniest sequences finds the candidates for prime minister being tested on leadership skills such as ribbon-cutting, butter-churning, endurance tickling and waiting your turn (King is praised for exuding the valued Canadian trait of passive-aggression).

像“Schitt”Creek的集合一样,国王最终会调情,制作贵族的生命决定并没有由命运的吱吱作响。因为他被社会腐败变得毁容,他认为与迷恋法国护士兰特(Sarianne Cormier),他将金长期与之交往的中尉欧内斯特•拉普恩特(Ernest Lapointe)和一名护士的真实身份融合在一起(“我们可以把法语动词组合在一起!””他叹了口气)。然而,兰金这部反体制的闹剧最要讽刺的是金的被动顺从和对中庸之道的满足,而当它故意得出令人不安的结论时,我发现自己太不安了,笑都笑不出来。当武藤公爵评论道:“给人们希望,就会有无尽的失望,但让他们充满噩梦,他们就会跟着你直入地狱。”“有时候,讽刺作品最有用的地方,就是发出尖锐的笑声,它们会卡在你的喉咙里,需要一段时间才能消化。”当常态习惯性地倒退到疯狂的深渊时,《二十世纪》完全不合常理。
