無賴騎駿馬肆意翔遊天際

孤独鬼的飞跃生活志

因为真的很喜欢Up in the Air,所以我很欲罢不能的再写了一篇,这次来写写精彩的语录。因为Ryan Bingham是负责帮企业瘦身的关系,所以电影的一段篇幅是讲述他是怎么代表一个企业去辞退员工的。很喜欢他重复了又重复的一句话

Ryan Bingham: Anybody who ever built an empire, or changed the world, sat where you are now. And it’s *because* they sat there that they were able to do it.

虽然不是什么惊世警言,但是却残酷的真实到不可理喻。

有时候,这也何尝不是一种契机

Ryan Bingham: You know why kids love athletes?
Bob: Because they screw lingerie models.
Ryan Bingham: No, that’s why we love athletes. Kids love them because they follow their dreams.

其实对于job security我是看得很开的,毕竟时代不同了,这个时代已经不可能发生什么“我公司是不可能没有我的存在”,或者“公司没了我不行”这样的歌仔。金钱主宰的社会是个很有趣的东西,虽然每个人的自我定位很不一样,但是人那么多,就算是你一个人可以处理5个人的工作,但是等到那一天你成了负累,或者老板宁愿请多几个人来代替,你还是得拾包袱走人。回到主题,说到家,很多人会想到舒服的沙发、温暖的被窝等等,可是换成了Ryan Bingham这个家如同虚设的他

Ryan Bingham: All the things you probably hate about travelling -the recycled air, the artificial lighting, the digital juice dispensers, the cheap sushi- are warm reminders that I’m home

可见家不一定要是大家既定的那个东西,对流浪汉(我并没有特地要挑起什么犀利哥的话题)来说,家可以是天桥下的一个角落,你懂我意思。其实男生有时候的占有欲是个很难解释,甚至应该说女生是无法了解这种obsession的,从这句话大概很能表达

Natalie Keener: Men get such hardons from putting their names on things. You guys don’t grow up. It’s like you need to pee on everything.

如我之前所说,整部电影的最大irony是发生在Natalie执意推行通过网络来辞退员工的想法。这个很不人性化的政策到了最后还是被否决,某程度算是好事。最大快人心的一幕,大概非这一段莫属

Natalie Keener: He broke up with me by text message.
Ryan Bingham: Wow. That’s kind of like getting fired over the Internet.

说真的,我是很同意Ryan Bingham的那句话。如果网络辞退计划是可行的,那么以后情侣间要分手就直接text好了,这样……以后拍拖就互相text对方好了,感觉……很怪。在工作之余,其实Ryam Bingham的副业算是到处演说的一个人,其实我很喜欢他前半部一直提倡的生活态度

Ryan Bingham: How much does your life weigh? Imagine for a second that you’re carrying a backpack. I want you to pack it with all the stuff that you have in your life… you start with the little things. The shelves, the drawers, the knickknacks, then you start adding larger stuff. Clothes, tabletop appliances, lamps, your TV… the backpack should be getting pretty heavy now. You go bigger. Your couch, your car, your home… I want you to stuff it all into that backpack. Now I want you to fill it with people. Start with casual acquaintances, friends of friends, folks around the office… and then you move into the people you trust with your most intimate secrets. Your brothers, your sisters, your children, your parents and finally your husband, your wife, your boyfriend, your girlfriend. You get them into that backpack, feel the weight of that bag. Make no mistake your relationships are the heaviest components in your life. All those negotiations and arguments and secrets, the compromises. The slower we move the faster we die. Make no mistake, moving is living. Some animals were meant to carry each other to live symbiotically over a lifetime. Star crossed lovers, monogamous swans. We are not swans. We are sharks.

回到现实,其实人类毕竟是群体动物,所以很多人其实不能接受

Natalie Keener: Can you stop condescending for one second or is that one of the principles of your bullshit philosophy?

最令人动容的,莫过于这句话

Ryan Bingham: If you think about it, your favorite memories, the most important moments in your life… were you alone? Life’s better with company.

画面跳转到Ryam Bingham终于看到机长出现,可是那一刹那的那种孤独感,没有人分享的悲哀,让这句话对他顿时变成了一种最大的讽刺。最好的,要放在最后,这是整部电影最令人扼腕的一个场景

Ryan Bingham: I thought I was a part of your life.
Alex Goran: I thought we signed up for the same thing… I thought our relationship was perfectly clear. You are an escape. You’re a break from our normal lives. You’re a parenthesis.
Ryan Bingham: I’m a parenthesis?

很都士的男女关系、很都士的生活脚步,我想我会喜欢这样的电影,代表我终究还是不是个kampung boy。我也不知道是不是好事……

寫得非常仔細!

我也是蠻喜歡這部電影,看了后有不一樣的啟發。
而且電影結尾當Ryam Bingham要settle down… 可是卻發現他喜歡的人原來卻已擁有幸福美滿的家庭的時候,那一刻的震撼/__\
