049 | 疲惫娇娃 X 美轮美换 :《美国内战》——失去语境的战争电影 A24’s “Civil War” is a War Film Stripped of Context

【聊了什么The What】

英国导演Alex Garland的新作《美国内战》(Civil War)以一场虚构的美国内战为背景,引发了广泛关注和争议。作为A24迄今为止最大制作,电影集全明星阵容和炫目视效于一身,更因触及当下美国社会分裂、政治极化的议题而备受瞩目。然而,电影却避开了最敏感的政治问题,转而以四名战地记者为主角展开叙事,聚焦新闻伦理和人性挣扎,也因此被批评为避重就轻。 在本期节目中,疲惫娇娃的两个女的与美轮美换的主播Lokin和小华一起,探讨以下问题:在战争中,镜头背后是新闻理想主义的湮灭,还是人性的回归?在信息过载的时代,我们是否还有余力正视战争和苦难的真相?摄影和报道究竟能否改变世界,抑或终将被时代洪流所淹没?影片刻意模糊了内战的起因和立场,这是否在鼓吹一种危险的相对主义,还是向观众传达了更有价值的提醒?

Alex Garland's latest film, "Civil War," was set against a fictional war between two different factions within the United States. The film has sparked considerable controversy. It explores America’s political reality through the lenses (zing!) of four war correspondents, centering on journalistic ethics and the struggles of the human condition, but somehow sidestepping all of the more contentious, real political issues currently dividing America. We were not sure if we liked this artistic choice, so we recorded an episode with our friends from 美轮美换 The American Roulette to process it. Do we like Alex Garland’s decision to obscure the causes of the war? Why do we need photojournalism? Do we still have the capacity to process the harsh realities of conflict and suffering, and hold complexities in this age of social media?
