奥斯卡新闻- 恢复到平10项最佳影片提名

"Reflecting on how many movies I think are exceptional each year I can see the appeal of the ten and why it is in most ways superior. I'm a bit of a listaholic like Nathaniel and like the elegance of a majority history of five nominees, but past that bias I'm pretty much lost for a reason to prefer it."Owen

评论:大5布卢兹

林恩·李

Perfectly timed. The right voice for this precise moment. Spike Lee’s never been more necessary than he is now.

如果您是通过Netflix的方式读斯派克·李的最新联合的“及时”反应的一种变体,Da 5 Bloods你读过它们。这是一个真相,不言而喻它实际上相当于一个真理。除了事实是,斯派克·李哪儿也不去 - 他是been在这里,过去30多年,在美国系统性的种族主义他的电影一直是及时的丑陋的持续教育我们。这是我们的错,如果我们没有理会他们的潜在训诫或给他们应有的持续关注。它没有什么意义的话,要给予他的最新版本的任何额外的期望,它会“的时刻说话。”

尽管如此,考虑到它的斯派克·李,它讲的那一刻,如果不那么直接 - 或更脆 - 比一些他以前电影...

Da 5 Bloodsfollows four black Vietnam veterans (played by Delroy Lindo, Clarke Peters, Isaiah Whitlock, Jr., and Norm Lewis) who travel to present-day Vietnam to search for the remains of their former squad leader, “Stormin’ Norman” (Chadwick Boseman, not to be confused with Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf) and a cache of gold buried in the same area. Unsurprisingly, things do not go as planned, beginning with the unexpected appearance of the son (Jonathan Majors) of one of the “bloods” and continuing as the group journeys up the Mekong. Unity gives way to dissent and division, exacerbated by misunderstandings and old injuries (both physical and psychological), while outside forces intrude to mostly destructive effect. Overlaying all of these conflicts is the historical legacy of using black Americans to fight morally compromised wars for a country that treated them as lesser beings—an irony hammered home at the outset with a montage of archival footage of black GIs and famous figures (including Muhammad Ali, Angela Davis, and Kwame Ture) commenting on the hypocrisy of their conscription. The point is further underscored by historical factoids embedded in flashbacks of Stormin’ Norman’s expostulations and无线电广播通过“河内汉娜”纳(Veronica NGO)插在整个膜中,与由Marvin Gaye的一个巧妙的策划选择的歌曲一起。

李显然得到了他的脑海很多 - 也许太多了。Da Bloods在丰厚的拍摄,以及采取行动,并间歇引人注目,但它也是一个庞大的,多风格和主题,它的2小时一次过长和过短,它试图覆盖的地面金额35分钟运行时间漫无混搭。它的最重的电影债务,李承认,是Apocalypse Now(1979)碧血金沙(1948), both of which it openly, almost cheekily, quotes; there are elements, as well, ofRambo, and a few echoes ofThree Kings和Richard Linklater’sLast Flag Flying。The film takes on, for good measure, interracial romance, family secrets, strained father-son relationships, white postcolonial guilt, and Vietnam’s revival and reckoning with its own wartime scars.

这一切都挂起云林一起在最好的,布卢兹practically screams for the hard edit Netflix clearly never demanded. Major plot turns come out of nowhere and lack the intended impact because the underlying characters or dynamics haven’t been developed sufficiently. The tonal shifts, too, are head-spinning, as the film moves from the sharp polemic of the opening montage to the warm, delightful chemistry of the four living “bloods”’ reunion in Hanoi (honestly, I could have just watched those guys dancing the funky chicken for the rest of the movie) to the mounting tensions and pops of unexpectedly gruesome violence during the middle stretch of their journey inland, interspersed with abrupt flashbacks to ’Nam, to an improbable shoot-em-up third act that feels like it’s out of a Tarantino movie. The score, by the great Terence Blanchard, also feels off at times, too often inflating moments that should be underplayed.

尽管它的混乱,Da 5 Bloodsis well worth watching for two primary reasons: Lindo and Peters, whose portrayals of the group’s resident hair trigger and cool head, respectively, provide the heart and soul of the film. Lindo’s the one that’s garnered the most critical recognition, and for good reason: as Paul, the most tormented of the four surviving “bloods,” he projects with great power the festering burden of anger, trauma, and guilt the character’s been carrying for decades, and his increasing paranoia as he journeys closer and closer to the place that fucked him up for life. (As his long-suffering son, Majors plays off this constant tension poignantly.) Yet Paul’s climactic moment isn’t one of explosion but of expiation, as piercing in its tenderness as any of his prior Lear-like rage against the world. It’s been a while since Lindo’s had a big-screen role this meaty, and he makes the most of it.

Delroy Lindo already garnering awards buzz for "Da 5 Bloods"

与此同时,彼得斯,更好地了解他的电视作品(尽管他难忘轮流三广告牌外消落,MO哈里特),也同样强于奥的斯,探险队的实际领导者的那么招摇的作用。虽然他的冷静沉着冷静和安静的情报似乎最有能力带领球队走出自己的深化泥潭,当我们看到他在努力跟上时代的步伐,并在他的负担,弯腰 - 无论是字面和隐喻 - 我们从他的眼睛疼痛见that he’s just as haunted by his past as any of the other vets. Although Otis’s Vietnam back story is underwritten (and had me scratching my head over timelines and character ages), Peters easily transcends these limitations.

总而言之,Da 5 Bloods远远不是李的最好或最有凝聚力的工作,并遭受特别是与它的前辈相比,BlacKkKlansman。但是,与几乎所有他的电影,它会让你停下来想想困难的问题,即使它招待你。不会有太多的电影人谁不能同时做这两方面的事情。我们很幸运,有一个在斯派克·李。

我很期待看希望今晚。我李的观点是,他是令人难以置信的混乱和最终强大的电影制作人。好通常远远多于坏的(或不一致)。我宁愿一个混乱的电影制片人不是一个无聊的一个。

我发现这部电影是为紧急,功能强大,引人注目,因为它是混乱和重手 - 这是一个斯派克·李联合,后所有。

德尔罗伊·林多是超出了他得到的赞誉值得,但整个主投是优秀的,他们真的出售这些男人(即使他们都有点太年轻,不适合自己的角色)之间的结合。乔纳森专业也为林德的儿子真的很有效。

我爱的最深的是李的决定具有相同的演员们在当前和倒叙发挥他们的作用。我没有发现它分心于一切,我认为这美丽的图画战争的经验是如何影响他们的点。

thefilmjunkie:德尔罗伊·林多为67克拉克·彼得​​斯是68伊塞亚·惠特洛克Jr.是65.我可以看到诺姆·刘易斯,谁是57,肯定觉得这个略显年轻的说法,但其余的都是精品。

有喜欢在这一个四个不同的电影,他们都太长时间。

I've always thought that Spike had a mind of his own but see how quickly he has apologized for his comments on Woody. Fearing the rage of twitter at his age and status.

这部电影是一个烂摊子。
