Review On Forrest Gump

I've never met anyone like Forrest Gump in a movie before, and for that matter I've never seen a movie quite like "Forrest Gump." Any attempt to describe him will risk making the movie seem more conventional than it is, but let me try. It's a comedy, I guess. Or maybe a drama..Or a dream. The screenplay by Eric Roth has the complexity of modern fiction, not the formulas of

modern movies. Its hero, played by Tom Hanks, is a thoroughly decent man with an IQ of 75, who manages between the 1950s and the 1980s to become involved in every major event in American history. And he survives them all with only honesty and niceness as his shields.

And yet this is not a heartwarming story about a mentally retarded man. That cubbyhole is much too small and limiting for Forrest Gump. The movie is more of a meditation on our times, as seen through the eyes of a man who lacks cynicism and takes things for exactly what they are. Watch him carefully and you will understand why some people are criticized for being "too clever by half." Forrest is clever by just exactly enough.

Tom Hanks may be the only actor who could have played the role.

I can't think of anyone else as Gump, after seeing how Hanks makes him into a person so dignified, so straight-ahead. The performance is a breathtaking balancing act between comedy and sadness, in a story rich in big laughs and quiet truths.

Forrest is born to an Alabama boardinghouse owner (Sally Field) who tries to correct his posture by making him wear braces, but who never criticizes his mind. When Forrest is called "stupid," his mother tells him, "Stupid is as stupid does," and Forrest turns out to be incapable of doing anything less than profound. Also, when the braces finally fall from his legs, it turns out he can run like the wind.

That's how he gets a college football scholarship, in a life story that eventually becomes a running gag about his good luck. Gump the football hero becomes Gump the Medal of Honor winner in Vietnam, and then Gump the Ping-Pong champion, Gump the shrimp boat captain, Gump the millionaire stockholder (he gets shares in a new "fruit company" named Apple Computer), and Gump the man who runs across America and then retraces his steps.

It could be argued that with his IQ of 75 Forrest does not quite understand everything that happens to him. Not so. He understands everything he needs to know, and the rest, the movie suggests, is just surplus. He even understands everything that's important about love, although Jenny, the girl he falls in love with in grade school and never falls out of love with, tells him, "Forrest, you don't know what love is." She is a stripper by that time.

The movie is ingenious in taking Forrest on his tour of recent American history. The director, Robert Zemeckis, is experienced with the magic that special effects can do (his credits include the "Back to the Future" movies and "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"), and here he uses computerized visual legerdemain to place Gump in historic situations with actual people.

Forrest stands next to the schoolhouse door with George Wallace, he teaches Elvis how to swivel his hips, he visits the White House three times, he's on the Dick Cavett show with John Lennon, and in a sequence that will have you rubbing your eyes with its realism, he addresses a Vietnam-era peace rally on the Mall in Washington. Special effects are also used in creating the character of Forrest's Vietnam friend Lt. Dan (Gary Sinise), a Ron Kovic type who . quite

convincingly loses his legs.

Using carefully selected TV clips and dubbed voices, Zemeckis is able to create some

hilarious moments, as when LBJ examines the wound in what Forrest describes as "my butt-ox." And the biggest laugh in the movie comes after Nixon inquires where Forrest is staying in Washington, and then recommends the Watergate. (That's not the laugh, just the setup.) As

Forrest's life becomes a guided tour of straight-arrow America, Jenny (played by Robin Wright) goes on a parallel tour of the counterculture. She goes to California, of course, and drops out, tunes in, and turns on. She's into psychedelics and flower power, antiwar rallies and love-ins,

drugs and needles. Eventually it becomes clear that between them Forrest and Jenny have covered all of the landmarks of our recent cultural history, and the accommodation they arrive at in the end is like a dream of reconciliation for our society. What a magical movie.

《阿甘正传》 影评




----妈妈说,你必须明白,你和你身边的人一样,你和他们并没有什么不同,没有。 ----妈妈说,我只是告诉自己,当我做一件事的时候,我就要尽力去做好它,比如我这辈子做了你的妈妈,这是我无法选择的事,上帝把你给了我,我的孩子,我就必须尽力做好你的母亲,我做到了。

阿甘是个非常听话的孩子,这些话他都记住了,他说,笨人有笨人的作为。当珍妮叫他快跑的时候,他跌跌撞撞地跑了起来,跑散了他记忆中第一双神奇的鞋子,也发掘出了他的第一项潜质:跑。他一直在跑,开始是逃跑,后来他跑进了橄榄球队,再后来跑进了大学,跑得了学位。在越战战场上,他仍是牢记珍妮的话,跑回了自己的性命,也跑回荣誉和友情。 你不得不承认,其实很多事情的成功是有其偶然因素的,它并不会因你的处心积虑而更接近终点,却会在你不经意的时候,给你的努力以一个最恰当的褒赏。他忠诚,所以在越战中他独自脱离了危险的时候,他仍然跑回丛林中去找他的战友。他守信,他答应了战友要共买一艘捕虾船,但战友死了,他却在旁人不可思议的眼神中为他实现了遗愿,也为自己赢得了巨大的财富。他执着,所以他会在珍妮离开后一跑三年,穿越了整个美国,一直不停,他告诉你,他只是想跑,他用跑步丈量人生,这不需要以和平自由或任何冠冕堂皇的东西为理由。他友善,在他救回中尉的性命后,失去了双腿的中尉一直对自己不能战死在战场上却仍以残废之躯苟且偷生而羞愧,而恼怒,因为中尉是这样一种人:他视荣誉高于一切,他不能忍受平凡,是阿甘用友善唤回他对生命的信心,使他发现,即使没有双腿,人生依然可以充满生机。
