“The rush of battle is a potent and often lethal addiction, for

war is a drug.”


Chris Hedges, WAR IS A FORCE THAT GIVES US MEANING

 

戰爭像致命且強大的藥癮,開場白一展無遺本片的核心。

 

 

就在自殺炸彈客引爆後...以下引述自劇本,(注意!還沒看過該片的請三思...)

 

 

They drive on in silence. Then Sanborn looks at James, as if

seeing him for the first time.

 

沉默,人最震撼時往往是沉默,不知道為什麼那一刻顯得陌生。

 

SANBORN

Why do you do it? Take the risks?

JAMES

Hell, I don’t know.

SANBORN

But you know what I’m talking

about, right? Every time we go out,

you throw the dice. Live or die,

you just throw ‘em down. You

recognize that, right?

JAMES

Yeah. (softly) I do. But I don’t

know why. Do you know why I am the

way I am?

SANBORN

No, Will, I don’t.

 

Silence. Then after a while:

JAMES

This traffic is pissing me off.

SANBORN

Where are we, anyway?

JAMES

I know where I am but I’m lost.

是交通令人火大,還是所有的一切?包括你自身的選擇還有自覺性的迷失,真是令人火大。

 

 

回到家園後難得的片段,這段父子互動,包括之前安排主角全副武裝在淋浴間痛哭失聲,表達很細緻,很女性。

 

JAMES

You see, the thing is, son. One day

you’ll understand that when you

start out like you are now, you

love everything. You love your

Mommy and your Daddy. You love your

bobba. You love your blanket.

 

 

 

You even love your little crib, and

these dumb toys. But as you get

older some of the things you love

don’t seem special anymore. That

bobba is one day just going to look

like an ordinary plastic bottle to

you. And the older you get, the

more this happens and the fewer

things you love. And by the time

you get to be my age, sometimes you

only love one -- or two -- things.

James pauses.

JAMES

With me, I think’s it’s one.

 

是的,他這段與兒子的自白根本是在說給自己聽的。到你意識到原本喜歡的東西不再特別,甚至只剩下那麼一二個,也許只有一個足夠撐起生命的全部,就是成長的代價。然而,那也沒什麼不好,因為,他依舊朝前走去。
