黑色喜剧还是病态虚无主义?"The Mother"和“高层”

Tribeca is over and we're almost done catching up with reviews.Here's Nathaniel on a potential Oscar submission from Estonia and a twisted thriller from the UK.

Mother
The festival described this crime comedy asFargo-在某种程度上是这样的。It takes place in a small town where everyone seems to know each other...ish.当地的风俗是有趣的,或者是外人特有的(即,美国)。还有一个明显的暗流'and all for a little money'对人类境况的绝望,既拖累了红鲱鱼,也拖累了真正的犯罪。一个叫劳里的年轻女教师(西姆Maaten),something of a slacker/dreamer as he had big plans but never moved out of his parents home,has been in a coma for months following a shooting.当他长期受苦的母亲试图独自照顾他时(父亲没有帮助)。包括朋友在内的参观者游行,lovers and policemen keep bursting in to bear their souls or search his room on the sly.主任卡德里·库萨尔是的,为女电影人准备的!)让摄像头像客人一样具有侵入性,and we're often looking where we shouldn't be behind doors or curtains or seeing things from odd angles.One of the best sustained jokes in this deadpan comedy (it's not really a movie for guffaws but呵呵呵呵touches) is that no matter how many times there's a knock at the door,尽管他们的房子已经成为大中央车站,父母还是很惊讶。

但谁负责枪击案,为什么everyone对他们与劳里的关系表现得如此怀疑或有罪?While the story revolves around the mystery surrounding the son,the mother is the star of the picture (in case the title didn't clue you in).尽管埃尔莎的性格很难戏剧化,她几乎不说话,像一个愤恨的沉默的苦役烈士一样四处走动,蒂娜•M_尔伯格这个角色很棒。And it's her first movie!她让这个角色既有趣又有趣,in the odd moment here and there,when her mostly surpressed emotions bubble up Mälberg earns the reveals and keeps the character cohesive.Grade:B/B(B/B)+

附笔。The Estonian film industry is tiny,producing a couple handfuls of films a year so we have to take any release that makes its way to American festivals seriously as a potential Oscar submission.该国首次获得外语电影类提名橘子收成時in 2014 (a joint production with Georgia).

高层
另一部电影《笑的土地》令人不安——因为男孩是虚无主义者——是本·惠特利改编的J.G。巴拉德的“高层建筑”。The allegorical satire takes place (almost) entirely within a high-rise apartment building where the 1% (Jeremy Iron as the architect) lives at the tippity top and everyone else is more or less at his mercy and subject to suffer for his follies if things don't work quite right in the building.Doctors like Tom Hiddleston's Laing,脑外科医生,在地板周围的某个地方,如此下去到较低的楼层,在那里,家庭(伊丽莎白·莫斯和卢克·埃文斯)和看似没完没了的孩子们挣扎着度过难关。The eventual societal breakdown is revealed from the very first image which is rather an odd choice;它扼杀了可能是令人毛骨悚然的势头。我们已经知道,向下的螺旋将使成人Lord of the Flieson each other and Laing will be living in shambles  as one of the society's only survivors.

如果你能克服动物的虚无主义和虐待,the film has plentiful pleasures including a smart performance from Hiddleston and rich filmmaking from every department.Clint Mansell contributes another intriguing score but the MVP is the eye candy from fascinating production design through to the very attractive cast.A crisp white shirt has never looked so pornographic as it does here on Tom Hiddleston but he's also wearing a lot less,他的同住居民(西耶娜·米勒——又是她)立刻注意到并欣赏到了这种疯狂的人际网络,从莱恩搬入每一层楼的那一刻起,这种网络将不断发展壮大。Ballard's novel was written in the 1970s but the film never plays it like a period piece really despite the flare of some clothing and hair and prop details,这有助于使它远离时间和宇宙;不管怎样,这部电影并不追求现实主义,而是寓言。并不是所有的工作,步调是一个特别的痛点,因为影片在去我们已经知道的地方的路上陷入了困境,他没有完全坚持下去,但我确信导演本·惠特利有朝一日会拍出一部伟大的电影。Grade:B
