Surreal Oscar 😆

Annihilation (2018)
Director: Alex Garland
Director of Photography: Rob Hardy

The story is about Lena, a biologist who 'accidently' signs up a secret mission and enter a weird area called The Shimmer.
Alex Garland for me is one of the best sci-fi director and writer working today. His directorial debut, Ex Machina is still interesting to talk about until this day. With Annihilation, Garland just make it more clear to me that he really is one of the best.

Annihilation is a type of film that cinephile will talks for hours because of their different interpretations, because the idea of the shimmer in Annihilation is just dark, scary, and yet so beautiful. The plot is a slow burn, but as soon as you know more about The Shimmer like the characters did you will invest more to the story.

The production design was freaking amazing. The creatures, the environment, even the 'victim' of the shimmer are like we never seen before on a screen.
Natalie Portman and Oscar Isaac delivers a good performances as a person who just witnessed a strange things that we never think ever.

You know, it's just great. It's a shame that the studio never released it on a big screen and went straight to Netflix because of the ridiculous reason. Annihilation is the best film of 2018 so far.

While I didn’t like this one quite as much as Annihilation, I still really enjoyed it!

Halfway through reading The Fireman and I am l i v i n g I love it so so much!
.
Currently editing a paper for (hopeful) publication in a post-postgrad journal on Fungi in science fiction. I'm looking at the ecological and evolutionary ramifications of human-fungus symbiosis and the entire theory around it is so interesting. Decided to look further afield in terms of additional literature and there's so much!
.
Are there any fungi-related books (fiction, preferably) that you would recommend?
.
I would personally recommend The Genius Plague the most out of this stack. I was a little disappointed with The Girl with all the Gifts but The Genius Plague really is something else! It's got kidnapping, political code-breaking, and missing tourists all tied in to an epidemic that reads like 24 except it's the NSA instead of CTU!
.
Also I just finished In Evil Hour for the #cutlooseclassicathon And am peeling myself away from The Fireman to pick another slim classic to hopefully finish before I go out tonight!

Annihilation 滅。境 (2018)
.
《滅。境》改編自小說《遺落南境三部曲》(Southern Reach Trilogy) 的第一集,電影公司並沒有大力宣傳 Annihilation ,並且把版權賣給了 Netflix,只在中國、加拿大和美國的戲院上映。在上一年首映後,大多的評價都說劇情太深奧,不適合作為放映給普羅大眾的電影。
.
除了電影的場景、故事非常引人入勝外,其實電影還蘊藏著很多細節部分、隱喻和令人需要思考的地方,是一部不可錯過的電影。首當其衝帶出的問題就是,我們究竟是誰?
.
有一個思想實驗假設了有一艘可以在海上航行幾百年的船,期間因維修或腐爛要更換部件,直到最後船的所有零件都不是最開始的那些。問題是,最後的這艘船是否還是原來的那艘,還是一艘完全不同的船?如果不是本來的船,它在甚麼時候開始不是原來的船?如果用換了下來的部件建造一艘新的船,那一艘才是本來的船?同樣地,如果我們體內的基因產生了變化,或者細胞因新陳代謝都被更換成新的,我們還是本來的我們嗎?
.
一塊神秘的隕石擊中了海邊的一座燈塔,以燈塔為中心出現了一個彩色微光區域,並向外擴散。生物學家兼前士兵 Lena 的丈夫 Kane 一年前因執行任務失蹤,一年後卻離奇出現。眼前的 Kane 彷似變了另一個人,後來突然吐血被送到軍事基地。從基地的人得知前方有一個隔離區 Area X叫 "the shimmer" ,「微光」,那亦是 Kane 當年執行任務的地方。Lena 決定進去一探究竟,踏入這個充滿基因突變的地方。
.
"The Shimmer" 中,DNA 的折射令人的記憶、身體產生變化。到最後的結尾,Kane 不是原本的 Kane,但Lena 還是 Lena 嗎?結局是開放式的,兩人眼中泛起的微光、兩人都曾經拿起水杯的鏡頭、Lena 手臂上多出來和隊員一樣的紋身,你有仔細留意的話,大概就會知道導演心中的答案。
.
Kane 進入他早已知道危險的微光,是因為他可能已經發現了妻子 Lena 出軌之事,所以是去尋死而非求生;Lena 因出軌的罪惡感進入微光,她尋求被殺而贖罪,但兩人最後還是活了下來,亦令兩人早已腐爛了的愛重生。微光表面上在破壞一切平衡,但實際上它是在透過創造一些新的事物,令殘破的地球重獲新生,洗滌所有罪過。

Idk why they didn't explore Josie's character more. She's a physicist, who found life hard. So she became a plant. .

《滅絕 Annihilation》
未知的區域被神秘微光壟罩著,五位女性科學家深入神秘區域中一探究竟,試著發現在區域中是否存在著某些難以解釋的異象。沒錯,故事的主旨與架構就是這麼的簡單,但是我相信看過電影的觀眾絕對不會說這是一部好懂的電影。

本片由派拉蒙影業製作,而在美/加以及中國外都是由Netflix發行,一部電影會選擇把版權賣給線上影音串流平台撥放,其中必有原因,而我想派拉蒙或許也發現了「《滅絕》可能不會受大眾所青睞」。科幻驚悚電影百百種,屬於異地冒險的也不在少數,但能夠拍的像《滅絕》如此唯美與精緻的實在不多。如果硬要講,或許《異星入境》跟本片的風格會比較相近一點,不過《異星入境》是屬於層層堆疊的情緒;而《滅絕》則會讓觀眾持續地思考與懷疑,最後面對結局的震驚依舊讓觀眾反覆的思考與揣測。本片的導演為Alex Garland,這也是他指導的第二部長片,第一部為《人造意識》,Alex Garland也以一貫的冰冷敘事手法,讓《滅絕》呈現的氣氛顯得更加驚悚與詭異。

回到故事本身,娜塔莉波曼飾演的生物學家莉娜,獨自一人在家中打掃時,因出任務消失一年的先生凱恩突然回家,莉娜原先感到驚訝又開心,但卻發現凱恩回來之後像是變了一個人,彷彿只剩下軀殼而缺乏靈魂,突然間凱恩應聲倒下,在送凱恩前往醫院的路上被挾持帶到「微光」旁的軍事基地「南境」。在得知凱恩因為前往「微光」而變成如今的模樣,莉娜毅然加入由五名女性科學家組成的探險隊。在進入「微光」後,眾人們發現隱隱約約「微光」正在影響著他們,例如無法掌握時間,又或者說是輕微失憶,心智也不再那麼清晰。在「微光」中,許多生物因某種原因已跟原來的樣子不太相同,例如:鱷魚卻擁有鯊魚的牙齒、鹿角上長著花、熊可以模仿牠聽到的聲音,而在某一處基地裡發現凱恩團隊所留下的錄影帶,畫面中一位軍人的腸子彷彿擁有自己的意識般胡亂扭動。眾人也終於發現,「微光」就像是一面稜鏡,讓生物的DNA互相交錯,當然也包刮人類在內。最後莉娜一人抵達「微光」中的終點-燈塔,在燈塔內發現留有一台攝影機,攝影機裡的是凱恩,而凱恩因無法承受「微光」所帶來的精神錯亂,選擇用磷彈自殺,而意外的是,在畫面的另一頭出現了與凱恩一模一樣人,凱恩在死前請外星凱恩回去找到莉娜,莉娜因此得知原本的凱恩早已不再,面對內心的崩潰,莉娜前往凱恩發現外星生命的洞穴裡,在洞穴裡見到探險隊的小隊長文崔斯,在對莉娜說著不知所云的話後爆裂成一團光芒,光芒吸收莉娜的血液後逐漸變成莉娜的仿生物,也就等於在同個空間中莉娜本身與他的複製人同時存在,在經過一段交纏拉扯後,莉娜利用之前所留下的磷彈在複製人身上引燃,熊熊大火連著燈塔本身一同燒毀,隨著燈塔被破壞,「微光」也隨之消失。在電影的最後,莉娜最後走出「微光」,並與凱恩的複製體相擁,至於莉娜本身郅否早已被改變,導演並沒有明確告知觀眾,但我想,就如同亞當與夏娃般,兩人將以全新的生命繼續驗續下去。 《滅絕》是一部驚悚科幻片,劇情單純但卻燒腦,其背後寓意當然也沒這麼簡單。我認為「微光」代表著很多,例如:社會、救贖與毀滅。首先,在「微光」之中,眾人漸漸地被影響著、改變著,如同現實社會般,人們進入社會後,需要為了適應環境而改變自己,有可能是同化,也可能是抵抗,為了適應環境,人們總會改變自身。第二,救贖,莉娜之所以進入「微光」,不只是為了釐清發生在凱恩身上的事,更是為了贖罪,因為莉娜外遇的關係,凱恩發現後才決定進入「微光」這趟自殺任務,出軌的莉娜為了彌補,也隨後前往「微光」,在「微光」的救贖後重獲新生,並殺死「有罪的自己」。最後,如同片中提到,人們總會追尋自我毀滅,無論是凱恩得知莉娜出軌後,放棄求生進入「微光」,又或是探險隊的其中一位隊員喬西,因了解到「微光」本身的原理,明白自己已回不去以往的樣子了,選擇自我放逐,成為環境的一部份,在「微光」中,人們反映最真實的那一面,不管是膳或惡,人們總在追求所認為的價值,在自我與環境之間取的平衡,才造就現在的模樣。

如果問我《滅絕》推不推,我會蠻建議這部電影值得一看,簡單卻寓意深厚的劇情、奇妙的「微光」世界、絢麗奪目的畫面,這三點就足以讓我推薦了,更別說娜塔莉波曼在電影中的詮釋,完整地呈現了莉娜在內心的糾葛,的確為電影家粉不少。電影最後給了一個很開放的結局,留給觀眾想像的空間,正是這種想像空間,才能讓觀眾反覆思索其背後的涵義。 《胖吉米打分數》:7.5/10
