Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, Part 1

性變態的電影異想世界 第一段

Sophie Feinnes / 2006 / UK 英國 / 48min / En/Ch subtitles 英/中

「這部電影不僅使其他電影變得更迷人,也讓你愛上你看電影的慾望」- 自由策展人徐文瑞

斯洛維尼亞籍哲學家齊澤克 (Slavoj Zizek) 是歐洲的思想紅星,他由他混合流行文化與心理學的理論而成名。齊澤克帶我們到著名影片的拍攝地點,比如希區考克 (Hitchcock) 的「驚魂記」裡,討論林奇 (David Lynch)、塔可夫斯基 (Tarkovsky)、卓別林 (Charlie Charplin)、駭客任務 (Matrix)、以及其他等,重新一一解構電影裡的場景。倫敦時報稱本片為「傑出的電影重新審視。」本電影會用三段呈現,第二和第三段則在4月27日星期天晚上放映。

"Cinema is the ultimate pervert art. It doesn't give you what you desire – it tells you how to desire." – Slavoj Zizek, philosopher

"This film not only makes other films more tempting, but also makes you love your desire to see a film." - Manray Hsu, independent curator

Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek is known as the "rock star" of European philosophy for his mix of pop culture and psychoanalysis. This documentary puts him in the basement of Hitchcock's "Psycho" and other iconic film sets, where he discusses David Lynch, Tarkovsky, Charlie Chaplin, the Matrix and others, deconstructing the world of films from the inside out. The total effect was called by the Times of London "an extraordinary reassessment of cinema." The film is in three parts. Parts 1 will be shown here, and parts 2 and 3 on Sunday, April 27.

Shorts 1: Friday Night Funnies


其實我們原本也不太喜歡貓,直到看到本片中那隻一直舔自己奶頭的貓...。假設這隻『小舔舔』願意暫停一會兒,我想牠應該也看出在這個禮拜五夜晚,我們是如此努力的營造出幽默感。帶有英式幽默的 Police Kestrel;近日最有趣的「一個好理由」(我可是一點也不相信那張廢紙結婚證書啊!) 身邊剛好有朋友正在等做兵嘛? Hiya 絕對!絕對!是最智障的待役寫真:快遞弄丟一批素人自拍...,他們想到的辦法居然是自-己-拍!

Normally, we hate cat movies, but that was before we saw this one about a cat that incessantly licks its own nipple. So if you’re talking about good old fashioned F-U-N, then this line-up has got it, from the British humor of “Police Kestral” to the most laugh-out-loud relationship movie we’ve seen in a while, “A Good Reason.” (“I don’t believe in marriage baby, it’s just a piece of paper.”) “Hiya” is far and away the funniest film we’ve ever seen about the idiotic limbo of life before military service. Its characters could be Taiwan’s “Clerks,” and when a delivery of homo-erotic photos gets misplaced, all they can do is re-shoot the photos themselves. Toss in a few cartoons, and you’ve got yourself a Friday night at the movies!

Who is Bozo Texino?
誰是Bozo Texino?

Bill Daniel / 2005 / US 美國 / 56 minutes / En/Ch subtitles 英/中


A 16-year search for an underground artist known only to railway workers and hobos crisscrossing America on the back of empty railway cars. A poem to the open road and an unflinching look at the hardscrabble realities of these lifestyles such as alcoholism and illness. A chronicle of obscure chalk drawings and those done with paint sticks is the ultimate “outsider art”, a form of expression developed amidst cold nights riding the hard rails and cold nights. The film is shot in black&white film with the open-door of box cars providing perfect framing for the stunning mountain scenery which passes by. Many have commented “Who is Bozo Texino” is the best film they have ever seen, a testament to the film’s life a life affirming moments.
