張藝謀擦錯鞋喇

22. (C) The Ambassador also asked Secretary Xi about his recent movie viewing, recalling that Xi had told him in their meeting one year ago that he had recently seen and tremendously enjoyed “Saving Private Ryan." Had Secretary Xi seen other recent American movies that he had enjoyed? Xi replied that he already owns the “Flags of Our Fathers" DVD, but hopes to view it during the Lunar New Year holidays had gone unfulfilled. He had seen and enjoyed “The Departed." Xi said he particularly likes Hollywood movies about World War II and hopes Hollywood will continue to make them. Hollywood makes those movies well, and such Hollywood movies are grand and truthful. Americans have a clear outlook on values and clearly demarcate between good and evil. In American movies, good usually prevails. In contrast, “Curse of the Golden Flower," a recently popular Chinese movie directed by Zhang Yimou and starring Gong Li (she of “Miami Vice" movie stardom) had been confusing to Xi. Some Chinese moviemakers neglect values they should promote.

Wikileaks: China’s next leader reveals taste for Hollywood movies

由於周末有太多關於中國嘅維基解密電文要睇,講真,連我呢啲讀慣政府文件嘅政治學者,都睇唔切咁多,所以精選呢段花生味特重嘅嚟俾大家睇。

張藝謀睇完,一定感到自己食咗屎。習近平嘅對話,可以反映佢個人嘅真性情同價值觀,佢希望係有人發自真心咁愛國,依家一味搞肉麻嘢嘅土共,諗吓自己日後可以點行。當然呢篇電文仲有好多值得判讀嘅地方,日後可以印證美國外交官員嘅水平,但呢段觀察,大家可以諗點解何俊仁可以同中央政府溝通,實情係,習近平會信司徒華、信何俊仁,唔信你班土共。以下,都可以係註腳:

The Ambassador noted that a Chinese film about HIV/AIDS orphans had just garnered the Oscar for best short documentary. Xi expressed awareness of the movie, noting that the director is a female overseas Chinese (but Xi never said whether he had seen that documentary). Xi recalled that a low cost, very good Chinese movie by the director Jia Zhangke had recently won a Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival.

佢讚賈樟柯,當眾睇唔起張藝謀(小弟知道賈大導一位出名粉絲叫鄧小樺)。香港土共分分鐘隨時被人截水,都唔知死咗喺邊。

後話:有人話《滿城盡帶黃金甲》係講一九八九年北京民運,或者張藝謀有咁嘅隱喻都唔奇,只不過個presentation真係⋯⋯

    賈樟柯套"世界"好好睇…套戲係幾年前拍, 但apply落去世博係完全Match. 中國人不能向去闖, 只能睇一堆世界風景名勝的模型望梅止渴

  2. 義不容共

    共產一黨專政,當然長期需要各界奴才順民應聲蟲合力唱和,然而再專制獨裁者也好,除非嚴重腦殘,否則絕不會連奴才馬屁以至逆耳忠言都分辨不到。有沒有胸襟本領,包容異見面對現實,是另一回事。

    稍為懂得電影的人也會看得出,張藝謀近年逢大片必爛 ( 不只他一人 ),反而人情小品偶有佳作。

    我卻覺得張藝謀完全清楚自己在做什麼

    電影是燒錢的玩意. 若他不拍拍這些賺大錢的爛片, 怎樣維持他拍小品的開支? 而且, 以他的才情, 等等的爛片花不了他多少心血.

    一人身兼王晶與王家衛, 其實也沒有多少個.

    還有, 中國領導人跟外國媒體的說話也能相信嗎? 有溫影帝在前, 難道習總也不會學一學?

  4. I find the below comment about GDP statistics from Li Ke Qiang in “US embassy cables: Rising star of Chinese communist party reveals personal crusade against corruption"

    4. (C) GDP figures are “man-made" and therefore unreliable, Li said. When evaluating Liaoning’s economy, he focuses on three figures: 1) electricity consumption, which was up 10 percent in Liaoning last year; 2) volume of rail cargo, which is fairly accurate because fees are charged for each unit of weight; and 3) amount of loans disbursed, which also tends to be accurate given the interest fees charged. By looking at these three
    figures, Li said he can measure with relative accuracy the speed of economic growth. All other figures, especially GDP statistics, are “for reference only," he said smiling.
