    舊書小發現: [黃禍]作者王力雄在2017年出版小説[大典],故事內容就是有關流感疫情,政治整肅,世衛調查,病毒,專制權力以高科技網絡技術監控人民,堅固帝国的科技專制却因小角色而瓦解……放在今天,很像又不像。

    Wow yellow protestors are all over hk for June4 commemoration. Blue people should leave town for Guangzhou/Shanghai/Beijing for their personal well being, where they could spend renminbi as much as they like. No more quarrels with the yellows, ha!

    Forgot to mention in my last post - my favorite scenes also include the one where Phyllis started making an apple pie after Reagan’s phone call. 覺得她「抵死」的同時,心卻有戚戚焉之感。That’s what I mean by Cate’s charm, 明明是個乞人憎的奸角,卻能令人心疼。

    yes, she's so watchable. never a dull moment.

    終於來到 “Mrs. America” 最後一集。What a powerful ending!


    看這劇本來只是為了 Cate Blanchett ,結果卻上了一堂寶貴的歷史課。從不知道美國早在七十年代已有黑人女性參選總統,亦沒想到那時的知識份子思想那麼前衞。可惜,到了四十多年後的今天,我們仍面對同樣的問題:男女依然同工不同酬;同志仍受到某程度上的歧視;至今美國仍未出現第一位女總統。


    Cate 不愧為現今世上最優秀的演員之一。她演 Phyllis 這個反派角色,ruthless 得來又不失 humanity ,juicy 得來又不過火,氣場強大(怪不得中國大陸的粉絲稱她為「大魔王」),收放自如。一個眼神,一個表情,已勝千言萬語。除了當女主角,她亦是此劇其中一名 executive producer,相信她放了不少心血。近年她演的不是「大路」的 blockbusters (Thor, Ocean’s 8),就是成績強差人意的小品(e.g., “Where’d You Go, Bernadette?”)。很高興看到她今次主演這部雅俗共賞的佳作。


    其他演員也十分出色。無論是支持/反對 ERA的核心成員,抑或較次要的配角,個個都是好戲之人。印象最深刻的是那個像黑幫女頭目/恐怖份子的 evangelical Christian ,不就是現時癲佬 Trump 支持者的寫照嗎?


    另外,我很喜歡這劇的結構,每一集都從不同主角的觀點出發,讓我們看到每個主角的背景,behind-the-scenes 的掙扎,令每個角色更立體,劇情更豐富和全面。


    我最喜愛的幾幕:

    1)Phyllis 淚眼汪汪的用自己戒煙的經驗來勸兒子「變直」。(And yet she smoked a pack of cigarettes after taking the bar exam. Not sure if it implies she has accepted her son’s sexual orientation.)

    2)  Jill and Phyllis’ discussion on sexual harassment during happy hour.

    3)  Betty’s neighbor reminding Gloria of Betty’s contribution to the feminist movement.

    4)  Gloria’s phone call to Betty after Betty’s debate with Phyllis.

    5)  Brenda and Jules’ dancing/making out at a lesbian bar. I’ve been hooked on “Roller Girl” since I first heard it in this scene.

    6)  Everybody submitting their letter of resignation to Carter in support of Bella.

    7)  Phyllis getting teared up as Alice told her that she used to feel scared by Phyllis and drove away.


    Overall, the series is phenomenal in every aspect (the script, the acting, the custom, and the music). 期望這劇能在Emmy 和 Golden Globe 獲獎,especially for Cate’s acting!

    been watching "Homecoming" season 2 nonstop. now just finished finale of mrs america which is just as good as any previous episodes. find "when we rise" if possible. can be viewed as a companion piece of mrs america. around the same period but this one concentrates on the gay right movement in san francisco in the late 70's.

    hi 小宇,不知道在这里留言能否被回复,想请问《穿kenzo的女人续集》现在是否还有出售呢?找遍了网络似乎都没有,如果还能买到实体书就太好了。

    祝健康

    Just finished watching "Mrs. America" Episode 8.  Glad that there is an episode focusing on Alice (I loved Sarah Paulson's performance in "Carol").  At first I didn't quite understand why Alice would question her own belief after just a few drinks and a "Christian pill" (was it some sort of soft drugs?).  Later I realized her belief was solely based on her admiration for Phyllis; she never examined what the whole movement was about.  Once her bubble of admiration burst, her whole belief collapsed.


    Do you think Phyllis' kiss on Alice's cheek has any special meaning, like Judas' kiss on Jesus' cheek when he betrayed Him?


    "We Shall Overcome" is such a timeless tone that it always brings tears to my eyes.

    因為她親身經歷,看到敵營非想像般邪惡,亦有其可取之處。this is a damn good episode. 70's 2.0.
