电影的基调是阴冷,场景: 晚上,下雨的晚上, 唯一一个明亮的场景是荒芜的南极.
战争场面响起欢快的Ride Of The Valkyries
整部电影都是依靠这每个人的内心活动来支撑的.导演也没打算讲一个滴水不漏的故事.这样的拍片方式其实很容易把观众整懵.这部片高超在于导演用一条线把英雄的内心活动串联起来: Comedian 的死去. 每个人在回忆Comedian的同时,他们的人格其实也塑造了起来.
一开始以为Comedian就是反社会,随着回忆递进,我们会发现 Comedian 和 Rorschach 一样都是活得明白的人,嗯,两个活得明白,仍然令人讨厌的反社会.一个选择用Joke来面对,一个选择伸张正义.
有一幕我是特别感动的:第一代 Owl 死去的时候, 那一段拍的很悲壮: 他每一次挥拳,过去的高光时刻与现在的英雄迟暮形成反差,但至少, 他还是选择战斗.”廉颇老矣,尚能饭否?”. 还有第一代Silk Spectre 在回忆过往时候的动作,很多事情导演都没有只说,却刚刚好给我们留下了想象的空间: 她在想念Comedian那个混蛋.其实Comedian也是.
Rorschach 一直很在意自己的面具,他说过,面具下的那个人已经死去,只剩下Rorschach.但最后让 MANHATTAN 杀了自己的时候,他是把面具脱下来的.这个我没想明白是什么意思,作为人类死去而不是一个英雄?
Tonight, a comedian died in New York.Somebody knows why. Soon there will be war,Millions will perish in sickness and mesery.Why does one death matter against so many? Because there is good and evil,and evil must be punished.Even in the face of armageddon,I will not compromise in this (Rorschach)
Edward Blake–the Comedian. Born 1944, buried in the rain. Murdered. Is that what happends to us ? no time for friends? only our enemies leave roses.
Violent lives ending violently.
I heard a joke once. Man goes to a doctor, says he’s depressed. Life seems harsh and cruel. Doctor says, “the treatment is simple.
The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up.”
The man bursts into tears. “But doctor,” he says.”I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh.Roll on snare drum,Curtains.
The streets are extended gutters …and the gutters are full of blood.And when the drains finally scab over…all the vermin…will drown.The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder…will foam up around their waists…and all the whores and…politicians will look up and shout,”Save us.” And I’ll whisper,”No.”
what you call compassion, wanting to protect and understand the guilty. This rotting society,what is calls rehabilitation,noting short of compromise.there are other men in here with behavior more extreme than mine,doctor…you wanna know about Rorschach?I’ll tell you about Rorschach… Once a man has seen society’s black underbelly,he can never turn his back on it .Never pretend,like ypu do, that it does’t exist,no matter who orders him to look the other way.We don’t do this thing because it’s permitted .We do it because we have to ,We do it because we’re compelled.
From then on , there was only Rorchach.See, doctor,God didn’t kill that little girl,Fate didn’t butcher her and destiny didn’t feed her to those dogs,If God swa what any of us did that night,he didn’t seem to mind . From then on , I knew:God doesn’t make the world this way,We do.
I live my life free of compromise,and step into the shadow without complaint or regret. – Rorschach, November 1st
First Silk Spectre
what happended happended 40 years ago.I am 67 years old,Every day, the future looks a little bit darker,but the past, even the grimy parts of it ,keep on getting brighter.
You know, mankind is been trying to kill each other off since the beginning of time.Now we finally have the power to finish the job. nothing gonna matter once those nukes start flying.We’ll all be dust.
Watchmen.That is the real joke.
Blake understood.Human are savage in nature,No matter how much you try to dress it up ,to disguise it ,Blake saw society’s true face,chose to be a parody of it.A joke.
DR. MANHATTAN : Blake. She was pregnant. You gunned her down. Blake turns on him, spitting fury.
BLAKE:That’s right! And you know what? You watched me! You could’ve changed the gun into steam or the bullets into mercury or the bottle into snowflakes, but you didn’t, did you? You’re drifting outta touch, Doc–I’ve seen it. Don’t tell me the war got to you. Blake walks off shouting “Medic!” Dr. Manhattan turns to the girl’s body and regards it, curious.
It’s like this world,this real world to him, it’s like walking through mist.And people are just shadows.Shadows in a fog.
i am looking at the starts.They’re so far away,and their light takes so long to reach us ,all we ever see of stars are their old photographs.
I am tired of being caught in the tangle of their lives.They claim their labors are to build a heaven,yet their heaven is populated with horrors.Perhaps the world is not made ,Perhaps noting is made . A clock without a craftsman. It’s too late,Always has been…always will be too late.
The most powerful thing in the universe is still just a puppet?
We are all puppets,Laurie,I’m just a puppet who can see the strings.
In my opinion, the existence of life is a highly overrated phenomenon.
but you, Adrian , you’re just a man,the world’s smartest man poese no more threat to me than does its smartest termite.
Rorschach 质问 Osterman,但我感觉他就是在质问上帝一样,质问他为什么对一切都无动于衷.
“ If you’d cared from the start,none of this would have happended “
I can change almost anything,but I can’t change human nature.
