《在乡间》In Country

 

《在乡间》

电影《在乡间》剧照

很少有人愿意让越战的错误在俄勒冈重演,但战争重现者愿意尝试。穿上迷彩服,男人们心甘情愿地重现大多数美国人希望忘记的战争。比如年轻的退伍兵Tuna,他保持着伊拉克旅行时的快感,进入越南士兵的角色,言谈举止仿佛真的到了1972年。而Vinh,一名60岁的越南共和国老兵,则根本不需要运用想像。

混杂着越战资料,士兵们的目光还对准了伊拉克和阿富汗,以及高度真实的场景重现演习,这场惊心动魄的旅程深入男人们的头脑,创伤、治愈和怀旧模糊了现实与虚幻。它的影响是有目的性的麻痹——这是无伤大雅的业余爱好,还是残忍血腥的种族战争热潮?In Country是一部对于尚未消逝过往的强有力评论。

In Country

 

Few would mistake Oregon's grassy fields for the bush of Vietnam, but war reenactors try. Dressed in fatigues, men willingly recreate the one American war most choose to forget. Young veterans like Tuna, who's still on a high from his tour in Iraq, take on personas of ‘Nam soldiers and speak as if it were really 1972. Vinh, a 60-year veteran of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, doesn't need to use his imagination. Mixing archival Vietnam reels, soldiers' own footage from Iraq and Afghanistan, and scenes of highly authentic reenactment manoeuvres, this disquieting trip into the men's minds and private lives blurs fantasy with trauma, therapy with nostalgia. The effect is purposefully disorienting-is this harmless enthusiasm for a hobby, or unhealthy fandom for a brutal, bloody, racist war? In Country is a powerful commentary on a culture that venerates a past from which it hasn't yet recovered.
