買起唐人經紀

英語對白,中文字幕
導演:尊卡薩維蒂

脫衣舞酒吧老闆Cosmo Vitelli是個嗜賭之徒,好不容易還清賭債,決定好好慶祝一番。及時行樂也是互相取暖,意氣風發帶著舞孃再赴賭場,怎知前面等著他是更大的惡運:在賭檯上連人生籌碼都輸掉,陷入黑幫羅網,被迫要殺人抵債。Cosmo只知暗殺對象是一名中國賭徒,卻不知自己已經走上不歸路。片尾高唱「不能給你甚麼,除了愛」,歡呼過後更顯落寞。卡薩維蒂作品中的奇葩,借黑色電影類型拍出紙醉金迷下的人生困境,以及奮力謀求虎口脫身的生存狀態。

The killing of a Chinese Bookie

United States / 1976 / Color / 108 mins
In English with Chinese subtitles
Director: John Cassavetes

The Killing of a Chinese Bookie begins with Cosmo Vitelli, a strip club owner, settling his final payment on his longstanding gambling debt.  Giving himself a go for a celebration of freedom, he spent another night with his strip dancers in casinos, where he eventually paid his price, literally and figuratively.  Having lost every single buck and indeed, he was forced into agreeing to commit a murder case by his gang debtors.  While he thinks he only needs to kill an anonymous Chinese bookie, he has no idea or whatsoever on the corner he’s forcing himself into and the consequences he has to bear.  The sense of despair and desolation engulfs everyone, specifically with the closing credit singing and echoing “I can’t give you anything but love” in the background.  A trulyinimitable work of Cassavetes, the film captured the ordeal of lives against the mesmerizing Vegas kind of world, bringing us an examination of human desperation and struggle to live.

Mabel, a mother of three, is seen as a “smart, beautiful and nerve-wracking” woman by her kids with her heart all on her kids and husband.  The story begins when she intends to bring the kids to their grandma and pleases her husband with a lovely private night.  It intensifies as her husband calls off the date for his overtime duty.  She goes to a bar bringing a stranger back to the house to fulfill her emptiness, only if she finds it’s even more miserable.  She was not under the influence of alcohol but a tense and frustrating relationship among her families and others, which a tiny little touch will tear her apart right away.  In the next morning when her husband brings his colleagues over, the strange mannerisms and increasingly odd behavior of hers lead her to an eventual disastrous situation.
