Blade Runner

This film shows highly developed technology to make human cloning itself possible. This copy looks like we have the impression that today’s “clone”, even though people copying our humanity itself no different in appearance, but its “flesh” is based more on mechanical and electronic technologies. Therefore, it is difficult to create with its own independent thoughts and feelings, only unconditionally obey the command of humans, but life is also limited in just four years. So inevitably lead to unfair treatment against human cloning. To extermination of these renegade clone, a SWAT team called “Blade Runner” is dispatched, Harrison Ford plays Dyke is one good one. However, in the Dyke hunting human cloning process, in which a beautiful game but then produced a subtle emotion. This will be love it? How people can fall in love with machines? The most basic of human emotions and traditional ethical tangle here.

Human beings for their own selfish desires manufacture its own copies, but they do not want to think about empowerment. In fact, the presence of humans in this process only difference with other substances, so-called human nature, was completely destroyed themselves. Sadly, people are not aware of such destruction from beginning to end, is still enjoying the dictates of wanton pleasure. When the self-destruction toward irreversible direction, everything is turning back the time, has always been considered a cold-blooded ruthless robot already has ceased to have human feelings. Save the lives of the dead are about to show their nostalgia for the world, even though the world is no longer worthy of their nostalgia.


The opening film is good, and the scene is very strange hatred, not me and other modern people are familiar with this very attractive.

But the protagonists seem to see that this is a person who committed a thought crime because his eyes will turn, and he was in full swing when the hatred of others to maintain a calm appearance, took the diary diary seems to be very easy, but not Street prostitutes while on the go, caught in a grocery store owner, and the girl on the head, as if it all done quite easy.

1984 The novel is not the most attractive place and tortured protagonist’s revolt, but rather to show the overall concept of the rule of despotic totalitarian society. I think so.


You can see in the movie is full of pipes everywhere is to fill out the form, presentation graphics and plot works to make people very angry. Video absurd imagination through bold, vivid everything stereotypical descriptions. Alternating dream and reality on the emergence of the more confusing plot escape, especially when the end of the protagonist in the struggle between reality and dream, cruel to break the seemingly good things to show, it is clear by the current satirical future the pen has a deep sense of social reflection.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Almost all science fiction always recycled and reset ” world view ” setting , ” Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? “Is no exception . From the ” software ” is concerned , the book and science fiction In general not much compared to a new place, whether it is a variety of high-tech new invention, or human social organization, they all look rather clumsy rough, so-called science fiction can be predicted specific future technological advances in this book is not visibl . But this is not important, important is the book of “hardware”, including the bionic man later fled to various versions of the clone NPC is often interpreted to get rid of the people or the Universal Declaration of Human Bondage Interpretation pursuit of freedom, but the book is not intended to explore these things.” Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” Looks like a bionic man in the questioning has no soul, but asked repeatedly by experts in the bounty hunter Rick • De Kad ‘s mouth, and then he felt different thus ordinary people seem very “unusual” and into the emotional confusion of despair. From here we can peek into Philip Dick’s writing • Intent: bionic man has no soul is not the key, the key is in the end is what makes us think bionic man without a sou , and to feel bionic man without a soul this argument may not be reliable in De Kade was “not normal”, in short, designated “normal” and “abnormal” logo and the boundaries of what exactly.


Argumentative structure of the narrative portion of the whole movie is very similar. The story began is part of argumentative thesis leads, leads Jack further investigation; argument against that is part of the discussion of the “murder with impunity, you have the money,” the proposition that all things in this part are experienced Jack to illustrate the money, power and corruption of the impact of these forces is a predisposing factor for all murders and shady. The end of that conclusion, the final end of everything, have been swallowed up by evil forces, and concluded that in Chinatown and throughout Los Angeles, as long as you have money, you can do things outside the scope of the law, such as murder, incest.

The Maltese Falcon

“The Maltese Falcon” is a noir masterpiece, from any perspectives not just about the story and protagonist, but also the scene, lighting and photographic composition is giving viewers that perplexing feeling and curiosity, force themselves fully invested in the story. Story looks an easy case but astonishing behind the scenes. Also I think Sam Spade is giving a perfect model of protagonist in film noir. This film is such cold, and his face looks even colder, no feelings, even more like a bad person, but full of wisdom. He never exposes his inner thoughts, does not believe anyone, nor pay any emotion, but only with a cold heart. His role matches to the story perfectly. Therefore I think each film noir must have a kind of protagonist who is wise and brave, and cool. Which make film noir become special because of the noir charm of protagonist.

We can see Sam Spade is wise and brave. He did not believe in the words of neither Mary Astor, nor anyone else, he acts with the brightest minds of his own, as well as sharp language, against to three gangsters and wrapped them around his little finger. Moreover, not only the three gangsters, but also police and prosecutors could not reach him either. The most incredible is that Sam Spade would escape from all kinds of danger, but never without empty-handed.

Double Indemnity

The femme fatale Phyllis Dietrichson from “Double Indemnity” was attracted me, she and insurance agent Walter Neff who is the hero in the film, conspired to kill her husband in order to get a huge indemnity, and the purpose of doing so is because cannot stand with her husband, wanted to escape the shackles of the family. Femme fatale is beautiful and sexy, for men, she is dangerous. Since she can bring a man completely different feeling, so that men are willing attracted, be tempted, so took the road of betrayal of the family, so she must be punished in order to restore and maintain the balance of the traditional family system. In the film “Double Indemnity”, the insurance agent Walter Neff was outset by femme fatale Phyllis Dietrichson’s temptation, with her plan and execute the murder, but in the end, he found Phyllis Dietrichson was trying to kill him too, he took the money and left, he shot Phyllis Dietrichson the lady who was already conquered by him without any hesitation. With respect to the boring stability of family life, although femme fatale touches men’s heart, but never assume the role of wife.

The Set-up

As a classic film noir, “The set-up” has the elements of such a character: the hero through their own efforts to win a resounding success, but his final outcome is a significant and disastrous failure. But Stoker is different than Walter Neff in “Double Indemnity”, the theme of this story is also different than those murder types of film noir, Stoker failed not because of moral and legal norms beyond “personal struggle” caused, on the contrary, although he failed, but won dignity. However, in this dirty town and this dirty boxing gym, people vent by trying to watch other people’s physical abuse, the result is eternal boring after a brief comfort to him.

The screenwriter of the film created many really interesting and key secondary characters, especially the man tussle that was made ​​out of control, standing stands hoarse middle-aged woman, this impressive supporting cast so profound that her extremely ruthless compares to Stoker’s extremely depressed wife in stark contrast. And that blind guy, and the fat guy was sitting in the stands and kept putting popcorn  into his mouth, also a man was in emotional excitement, completely ignoring his wife around him, why they are so in love with boxing? They obviously do not respect what the sport ideals, they all have their own lives, but without exception, and came to this place to vent ruthless internal stress and anguish.

Murder My Sweet

A very nice film noir. It is a standard American melodrama, a story with complex, innumerable twists and turns, combined with the generated lingering mystery in the viewer’s mind until the last moment before the end of the movie, it was untied step by step.

Most of the film noir, the leading man is always clever, quick mind, very strong. “Murder My Sweet” is an exception, Marlowe gives a clumsy, silly feeling. The entire film seems perturbed.

The femme fatale Helen is a nice character with mature and fragile dual characteristics. She performed very vividly. That ‘is why each film noir is inseparable from a femme fatale.

However, story is so delicate, two stories perfectly strung together. Story One: Private detective looking for criminals prop former’s lover. Story Two: The classic femme fatale story.
