为什么《炎夏之夜》不怎么样

Why 'Hot Summer Nights' Doesn't Work

几天前 我做了一个视频
So, a few days ago I made a video called
叫做《如何制作一部A24电影》
“How to Make An A24 Movie?”
你们有些人就从中推测
Some of you may have worked away from that,
我喜欢A24的所有电影
thinking that I love every single A24 movie,
才不是呢
which isn’t true.
你说巧不巧 那个视频做到一半的时候
Coincidently, half way through editting that video,
我就发现了一部我很不喜欢的
I came across one A24 movie in particular
A24的电影
that I didn’t really enjoy.
叫做《炎夏之夜》
And it’s called Hot Summer Nights.
给没看过的人解释一下
Hot Summer Nights for those unaware
这是个很俗的成长故事
is a very generic coming-of-age story,
然后就没有然后了 开个玩笑
end of story. Just, just kidding.
这部电影讲的是一个窘迫少年的故事
It’s a movie about a very awkward teenager
由广受美国人喜欢的忧郁男孩提莫西·查拉梅出演
played by America’s favorite sad boy Timothée Chalamet,
讲述了他涉足毒品买卖
and how he starts selling drugs,
然后爱上生意伙伴的妹妹的来龙去脉
and starts falling for his business partner’s sister.
世界上有那么多烂片
There’re a lot of movies to not like out there.
那么多我不喜欢的电影
A lot of movies that I watched and I don’t really care for,
但我一般都不会觉得有必要做个相关的视频
but I don’t really feel like I need to make a video about them
除非它们是真的太烂了
unless they are particularly bad.
其实我没有那么讨厌这部电影
And I didn’t really hate this one,
它不是无可救药 只是不出彩
this was the thing wasn’t horrible, it’s no tag,
但有些地方我还是很想吐槽一下
but something about it really frustrated me.
在我们现在这个时代
You see, we’re kind of living in a time
七十 八十和九十年代的怀旧风很流行
where 70s and 80s and 90s nostalgia is the new hot thing.
像《怪奇物语》
Yeah, shows like Strange Things,
《去他妈的世界》这样的电视剧
and, End of The Fucking World,
还有《小丑回魂》《银河护卫队》这样的电影
and, and movies like It and Guardians of the Galaxy
都采用了这种风格 年轻人也很喜欢
that play on all of these styles and, and all the kids seem to really like them.
通过使用流行元素 环境布置还有背景音乐
By using either the fashion, or the setting, or the soundtrack,
让人感觉身处80年代 人们很吃这一套
and make something that feels like we are in the 80s and people get really excited about it.
说回这部电影 它只有悲伤的感觉
And this movie, it’s, it’s just sad,
它可能是我能想到的怀旧风格最浓重的电影了
it’s, it’s maybe the most nostalgia movie I can think of.
同时还有提莫西·查拉梅出演
It also is Timothée Chalamet,
正如我之前说的 他现在是个很红的演员
who as I mentioned before, is kind of hot stuff right now.
当然也是个好演员
And also, kind of a pretty good actor,
所以他们找了他来主演
so, you know, they got that going for him.
电影配乐也都是用的70年代的热门歌曲
And then they have a stellar soundtrack, full of 70s hits
以确保大部分观众沉浸其中
that’s just guaranteed to make a good percentage of viewers pretty invested in it.
但是尽管他们做了这一切努力
But through all of this, through all of this stuff that it has going for it,
看这部电影的时候我还是觉得它很无聊
I ended being bored out of my mind while watching this.
言归正传 下面我简单分析下《炎夏之夜》为什么不好看
So without any further ado, I’m gonna quickly gloss over why Hot Summer Nights doesn’t work.
1.剪辑
1.Editing
这可能是我个人感觉
Now this could just be a, a personal taste,
我觉得这部电影的剪辑简直就是灾难
but the editing in this thing was a freaking disaster.
第一 剪辑不是特别连续
For one, it’s not very consistent.
实际上是一点也不连续
In fact, it’s not consistent at all.
某些片段里像炸弹爆炸那样的快速剪辑还有场景切换的镜头
Off the bat, the film makes it’s editing out to be a pretty unique aspect of the film
实际上还是很有特色的
with quick cuts and swipes and boom, boom, boom,
但是剩下的都很一般 而且节奏很慢
but then other moments it just feels very generic, and very slow.
感觉就像在看两个电影
It’s, it feels like a completely different film.
这种剪辑的后果就是给人一种不连续不愉快的观影体验
What this does is it creates a really unsteady and unpleasant viewing experience.
它没有做到巧妙地引导观众看完电影
It doesn’t neatly guide the viewer through the story.
我的意思不是说
Now I’m not about to sit here and say that
所有电影都应该一顺到底
all films should neatly hold the hand of the viewer
引导观众看完电影
and guide them through the film.
相反我觉得这样做很蠢
I, I think that’s stupid.
为了电影本身着想
A lot of films shouldn’t do that because
大多数电影制作者最好别这么做
for the sake of the film that it might just be a better choice.
但如果这是一个特别俗套的成长故事
But when we’re talking a very generic, coming-of-age story,
就另当别论了 还是简单些比较好
you know, it should be pretty simple,
不能因为剪辑而让观众感到糟心
it shouldn’t be an unplesant experience through its editing.
像这样在不同的剪辑风格中来回切换
Going back and forth between editing styles like this
不仅不能添彩 还给人一种这部电影企图
does nothing but makes it seem like this film is desperately
用快速剪辑和奇怪的场景切换营造怪诞氛围的感觉
trying to be quirky with quick cuts and weird transitions.
2.主人公
2.The protagonist
我看这部电影时总要查一下主角的名字
The fact that I had to look up the main character’s name before getting into the section is
这是个问题 相信我 相信我
is an issue in itself. Now trust me, trust me.
别发火 这真的不是针对我们亲爱的“小甜茶”
Before you freak out at me, this really isn’t anything against our beloved Timmy.
好吗? 他在里面演得很棒
Ok, he did a actually pretty great job in this.
实际上他可能是这部电影最让我喜欢的地方了
In fact, he was maybe one of my favorite aspects of the film.
我认为他拿到了一个很一般的角色
I thought that he took a very generic character,
但他把这个角色演出了酷酷的感觉
made him kind of, kind of cool to look at.
但就这个角色本身 人物塑造非常失败
But as for the character, the writing for this, for this dude
甚至可以说根本没有进行人物塑造
is, is about is non-existent as it gets.
人物形象像纸一样单薄
It feels like a walking piece of paper,
一张没有灵魂的白纸
a piece of paper that has nothing on it.
这部电影太过注重把有趣的故事情节
This film focuses so much on having a fun story,
有魅力的演员 讨人喜欢的爱情故事这些因素拼凑在一起
on having attractive actors, on having a likable romance
但它忘了要塑造人物性格
that it forgets about the personality.
它忘了这个角色要有更鲜明的性格特征
It forgets that maybe this character should have a personality besides just
而不只是像“嘿 大伙看看我 我就是这么囧 哈哈哈……”
“Woo, guys, woo, look at me, I’m kind of awkward, ha ha…”
电影也为人物塑造设定了一些相当笼统的背景故事
There is some pretty basic backstory glossed over a few times in this thing,
但这种描述过于敷衍 没什么作用
but, it’s never to a point where I feel like I should care.
还有当坏事发生的时候
When it comes to time when something bad happens
这个场景的结束
and the end of the scene is supposed to
本应让我有想看下个场景的欲望
make me want to watch the next scene,
但我实在提不起兴趣
I could not be more uninterested.
我觉得这是因为这个角色不完整
I owe this through the fact that there is a lack of establishing in this character,
这样我们当然不会关心
without that we don’t really have a reason to care
这个青年身上将会发生什么事
about what’s going to happen next to this kid,
因为我们觉得自己和他没有联系
because who are we to know what this means to him,
尽管如此 我还是觉得你演得很不错
but hey, despite all that, good job to me.
不过还可以演得更好
I just, I think you can do better.
3.俗套
3.The Clichés
我的老天爷 这部电影还能再老套吗?
Oh, oh my god, this movie could not be more generic.
它就是个活生生的老古董
It is a walking cliché.
这一点不仅体现在电影中
Not only is it admitted in the movie,
预告片开头的第一句话就自己承认了
it’s admitted in the first line of the trailer.
“一个夏天都要把我送到别的地方 老把戏了”
“Sending me away for a summer, what a cliché.”
烟花下的亲吻 有人笨手笨脚打翻了饮料
The kiss with the fireworks, the awkward kids spiling the drink.
这类事简直不胜枚举
I mean, the list goes on.
我承认有些地方是有一些新鲜套路
I’ll admit there are some interesting choices here and there.
但大部分都是一个接一个的老掉牙的情节
But for the most part, this thing is just cliché after cliché.
不落窠臼的好电影是存在的
There are films out there that managed to get away with this,
我最先想到的就是《伯德小姐》
Lady Bird being the first one that comes to mind.
它之所以出彩就是因为有有趣的导演风格
But these films get away with it because they have an interesting directing style,
有饱满的人物形象
they have interesting characters, they have,
总之就是有自己独特的地方
they have, just weird ways of doing it.
《炎夏之夜》没有 它很无聊
This one doesn’t, this one feels so uninteresting
它的人物形象很模糊
because it likes any sort of personality which,
噢 正好牵扯到了我要说的下一点 也是最后一点
which, oh, leads me into my next and final point.
4.没有特色
4. No Personality
我得说抱歉 伊利亚·拜纳姆 是这么叫对吧
I’m sorry. Elijah, uh, Bynum, I, I think that’s how I pronounce your name,
但这部电影完全证明了他表达能力的不足
but this film is about his voiceless as it gets,
最难受的是它太过用力
the saddest part is that it is begging,
极力追求一种独特的风格 想要自成一派
it is, it is on its knees begging to have a unique style to be its own thing,
但就是在这个过程中 它反而成了最俗的电影
uh, but in the process, it becomes the most generic movie possible.
我觉得特色对这部电影来说是非常重要的
I think this issue is particularly important in this film,
因为它讲的是个关于成长的故事
because we’re talking about a coming-of-age story,
这是很私人的事情
something that is very personal.
观众本应能够建立联系
The viewer is supposed to connect to it
在角色身上或故事里看到自己的影子
or see themselves in this character or this story,
但他们没有
and you get none of that.
它给人的感觉就像有人拿着一个搅拌机
This movie feels like someone got a blender,
扔进去一些乱七八糟的东西
and throw in a couple of strange things,
一茶匙A24的电影艺术
a tea spoon of artsy A24 cinematography,
一勺埃德加·赖特的剪辑手法
a scoop of Edgar Wright editing,
一段70年代的配乐
a 70s soundtrack,
一个“甜茶” 还有所有的夏日青春电影
one Timmy, and every summer teen movie possible,
然后把它们混合在一起
and mix it all up, and as a result,
最后 你得到了一堆破烂
you got a big pile of nothing.
这种迷失在影响力里的风格
A style so lost in its influence
给人的感觉就像这部电影没有导演
that it feels as if nobody directed this thing at all.
这个角色背后似乎也不存在情感和动力
Leaving the emotion and drive behind the character to be pretty much non-existent.
好了 虽然看起来我好像很讨厌这部电影
So yeah, as much as it seemed like I hated this thing,
就像我之前说的 它也不是一点优点没有
like I said earlier, it’s not a total flop.
我喜欢“甜茶”的表演 也喜欢部分摄制手法
I enjoy Timothée’s performance, I like some of the cinematography,
说实话 偶然也有几个很亮眼的场景
and to be honest, a few scenes here and there kind of caught my eye.
我只是觉得有趣 像这样从一开始
I just think it’s interesting how something like this film,
似乎就是为了成为经典而生的电影
something that feels though it was built to succeed and become a classic,
如何最终沦为了平淡无奇的片子
ended up being so bland and so forgettable.
总之 我们本可以拥有一部夏日经典
So yeah, we could’ve had a summer classic on our hands,
一部被人铭记的电影
something that we could remember forever,
只要它能有更棒的剪辑和人物塑造
if only this thing had better editing, a better character,
少一点俗套 多一点特色
less clichés, more personality,
嗯……最后一点是什么来着?
and um, what’s that, what’s that last thing?
对了 再多一点
Ke ke eh, ahem, oh that’s right, a little bit more
“机器人 宝贝 你懂的
“robots baby, you already know what it is,
“包揽每一个奥斯卡奖项
winner of every single Academy Award,
“我要把这个笑话讲烂了 宝贝
and we’re beating this joke until it’s completely dead, baby,
“你懂的”
you already know.”
