Come and die with me, little priest.

编剧访谈,原址:

最好的导演、编剧和演员凑一块,这种事不常有。其结果就是镜头、台词与表演出神入化,融为一体。路易斯安那州的外景磅礴而诡异,几乎可以闻到沼泽地里新生与腐臭气息。

人物个性:rust , pessimist grump 愤世嫉俗的牢骚鬼; marty,dim Everyman
笨笨的平 常人
Yet while they may embody traits of the anti-heroes we’re used to seeing
lately, they’re also melded with a very classic John Wayne type of
hero.
If you look at their swagger and behavior under fire, they are fixated
on articulating a specific kind of stoic or Orwell-like masculinity that
they’ve picked up from somewhere else 两位男主,是兼具了
anti-heroe(平常人?)和heroes特性的硬汉。

True
Detective是美国50年代的一本地摊杂志,可以想见该剧传承了多少罪案片的套路。妻离子散、远谪他乡的警探,带着过去的伤痕,睡在只有床垫的空房子里。酗酒、不合群、异想天开。太老套了,这样的罪案片我看过几百部,但True
Detective超越了所有同类。作为观众,我们最终要接受一点:所有故事都在讲同一个故事,一切差别,包括剧情、年代、人物、场景,只是形式的外壳(所谓类型片,就是某些标准型号的壳)。而真正的差别,在于讲故事的人对这个故事的领悟程度。

克苏鲁粉丝的失望 :If you look at the series so far, what seems
supernatural actually has real-world causes, like Cohle’s
hallucinations, or even the nature of the crime. It has occult portents,
but there is nothing supernatural about it.

创作方面,True Detective更远的渊源来自Lovecraft, Robert Chambers,
Ambrose Bierce这批二十世纪初的B级作家,the Yellow
King直接取自Chambers的小说 The King in
Yellow。Carcosa,以及第四集最后,疯子Ledoux死前叨念的black star
rising都是这部小说里的元素。

剧本风格: naturalism

据说,在该剧播出的过程中,许多美国观众希望剧情向暗黑恐怖的超自然方向发展。果真如此,故事反而乏味,而且坚实的角色形象也会碎一地。编剧Nic
Pizzolatto在一场访谈里也说,Lovecraft一派的渊源与取材只是氛围和概念上的,甚至就是用了几个名字,真正文学上的渊源不如说是福克纳、康拉德,以及科波拉。仔细一想,《黑暗的心》,《现代启示录》,《真探》(雾气蒸腾的水泽之地,癫狂的信仰,一个用生命劈开黑暗的痛苦灵魂),简直就是一个故事。

关于The King In Yellow:The King In Yellow is in there because it’s a
story about a story, one that drives people to madness.之所以应引入The
King In Yellow,是因为它驱使人疯狂。
But instead of having our Satan worshippers worship Satan, they worship
The Yellow King.the yellow king是剧中的一种撒旦膜拜偶像。

可见创作并非一个人的工作,而是一种群体延续性的思维活动。如果你找不到好看的中文原创小说或剧本,想想前辈们写过些什么,就不奇怪了。另外,严肃文学与类型文学的分野并不存在,只有好看与不好看的故事。Pizzolatto说,如果非要给他的剧本总结一个中心思想,那就是everything
is a story。

故事气氛:质疑,Everything in True Detective is composed of questionable
narratives, inner and outer, from Cohle’s view that identity is just a
story we tell ourselves, to the stories about manhood that Hart tells
about himself, to the not always truthful story they tell the detectives
investigating them. 疯狂,和溃败的狂欢,o it made sense – to me, at
least — to allude to an external narrative that that is supposed to
create insanity, or as I prefer, deranged enlightenment.

”Cohle tells you that who you think you are, your identity, is a story
you tell yourself. He tells us that religion and philosophy are stories
we tell ourselves.”

故事背景:一个是现实生活中 Lousiana地区的撒旦崇拜。When we tried doing
as Pizzoletto suggests, we came up with this disturbing story of
real-life Satanic Ritual Abuse in
Lousiana.还有一个隐含的是越战或越战后遗症,That Vietnam stuff you
spotted which is very real. And so you have Cohle and Hart, who never
went to war, but were both raised by men who went to war,
(还有marty老丈吐槽的上街,应该是美国越战期的民权运动)

现实中,如果谁像Cohle一样说话,他一定不会有什么朋友。人类进化出思维,能认识自己的存在,却还没有进化到能面对存在的虚无。所以Cohle说:

剧透1:Cohle and Hart have a nice conversation about that in episode
eight. It’s their last car ride talk. 第8集,男主的基情大碰撞

“I think human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. We
became too self-aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from
itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are
things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of
sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we
are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody.”

剧透2:And in episode 7, the judgment of Marty for his failings is
expressed via the revelation that Maggie and his daughters flourished
after cutting Marty out of their lives.
Clearly they did. We had a scene where you glimpsed Maggie’s new husband
but it was cut. They’re all much healthier. That’s what Hart is thanking
her for in 7. Thank YOU for doing everything.
离开marty的maggie再婚,幸福快乐。

这个剧本很多地方就像尼采或叔本华写的,尤其是永恒轮回的概念,被巧妙地嵌入一个邪教杀戮的故事,最终给人的感觉是,这些恶灵真的飞升了,宇宙是一片冰冷的混沌。
Time is a flat circle. Death is not the
end。Ledoux遭爆头前一直絮絮叨叨,满心欢喜地迎接死亡。

最新皇冠手机投注网址,“闭嘴吧,尼采!”

这片混沌裂变出时间与存在,它就是死亡本身。

“Death created time to grow the things that it would kill”
