Fantasia - Moving on Amid Nostalgia

Seeing Fantasia, I was surprised to find that the audience are exclusive to those who grew up in the 70s. In fact, it was more like a family event. Lau Ching-wan admittedly has the look of Michael Hui in Games Gamblers Play, and there are also excerpts from Security Unlimited. With the main plot lifted from The Private Eyes, it is a post-modern mishmash of the three Hui Brothers films. What is amusing is that the 70s' gags still work, and bring the house down.

Memory Reconstruction -- Golden Chicken 2

As Kum says to Chapman To who is out of love in this film, "Reminiscing feels good." She is right. The selling point of Golden Chicken was precisely the revisiting of our collective memory which, happy or sad, we could identify and relate to. Golden Chicken 2 takes a leaf from its successful predecessor, and focuses on the happenings of 2003. The point is, the SARS tragedy is basically what this film covers. There is no mention of the fall from grace of senior officials except a brief glimpse of the high-profile resignation.

The Three Crossovers of Sound of Colors

Adapted by Joe Ma, Sound of Colors is actually a creation with the characters of Jimmy Liao's illustrated book of the same name. From Joe Ma to Wong Kar-wai, from Hong Kong to Taipei and Shanghai, then back to Jimmy Liao and Hong Kong cinema, there are in fact three crossovers in this film, more than the director thinks. But the addition of these parts fails to be greater than its sum, which, after all, is what crossover is meant for.

終極無間的瘋狂遊戲

上帝要他滅亡,率先令他瘋狂。

但瘋狂大抵也是權力遊戲的結果;透過界定孰瘋狂孰正常,作為權力滲透的知識,生產了擁有心理世界的個人,並不斷把人構成和塑造成符合一定社會/論述規範的「主體」。

《無間道》沒有瘋子,因為《無間道》說到底其實沒有一個清晰的「主體」。陳永仁(梁朝偉飾)作為港產警匪片傳統邊緣人的角色,起初是無間受苦的當然敘事焦點,但隨著劉建明(劉德華飾)角色的發展,他的孰忠孰奸成為了觀眾關心所在,第一集據說拍了多個結局,包括劉建明被捕和被殺,而以劉建明幕後音結束全片,也明顯以他作為另一個無間受苦的主體而完成了轉換:我情願是他(被開除出警校者)!雖然當時觀眾實在看不出劉建明有甚麼無間痛苦,但及後看來居然是一語成讖,劉建明在《無間道III終極無間》的妄想狀態中自視為陳永仁,並且完成了成為瘋子的命運。
