Life on the hard shoulder: Simon Beaufoy’s inspiration for Slumdog Millionaire | Film | The Guardian

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Life on the hard shoulder: Simon Beaufoy's inspiration for Slumdog Millionaire | Film | The Guardian.

The essence of this article.

There was no single, unwavering arrow of narrative to take an audience all the way through apart from the game show. And somehow, a game show just wasn’t enough for me.

I just can’t get excited about money as a motivation in a film. It leaves me cold. My heart does not sing if the final shot of the film is a slum kid snapping on a Rolex, getting in his Porsche and driving off into the sunset. In fact, my heart sinks. So, how to make a rags to riches story that doesn’t revolve around money? There was only one way to find out: go to Mumbai.

This film just has to be a love story.

Whereas screenwriters are always being told “write about what you know”, documentary makers prefer to dig, investigate, deliberately court exactly what they don’t know. For me, it is the best way to work. Where’s the fun in writing about what you know, when you can instead dive headlong into the new, the exotic, the utterly unknown?

The structure of the book defeats me for weeks as I try to transform it into a script. The story constantly moves backwards and forwards in time. Three different timeframes: Jamal’s recent past on the game show, Jamal’s distant past and Jamal’s present as he recounts the story of his life to the police inspector after his arrest. This jigsaw leaves me puzzled for weeks. I set myself the task to avoid any sense of flashbacks. No “10 years earlier” captions, no sepia tones. The past must be as real and as urgent as the present. All the time, I have director Danny Boyle’s laconic advice hanging over me. “It’s got to be Romeo and Juliet, otherwise, what’s the point?”

听齐泽克讲没品笑话

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2014

说一个丈夫把妻子送到医院做手术,半晌之后,医生出来。丈夫问手术进展得怎么样。医生说:“很成功,你妻子活下来了。”看到丈夫眉飞色舞的表情,医生又说:“不过,我得告诉你个坏消息。她活虽然活了,但是以后大小便失禁,并且不能过性生活。”看着丈夫难过的表情,医生哈哈大笑:“哈哈哈,放心吧,我是骗你的。你妻子在手术台上死了!”

马云死后被天使送到地狱,他进了一个房间,看见罗永浩正搂着范冰冰。马云对天使说:“嘿嘿,看来地狱也不错嘛。”天使说:“看清楚了,这个房间是范冰冰的地狱。”

波兰犹太人懒,懒到什么程度呢。丈夫下地回来,对妻子说:“我累了,没力气,不过还想搞一搞。这样,你给我来个口活,并且咽下去怎么样?”妻子说:“你累我也累呀。这样吧,你自己撸到这个杯子里,我明天早晨喝,好吗?”

有个人一直认为自己是一粒米。经过一段时间的积极治疗,他终于痊愈,不再把自己当米。出院那天,他跑到医生的办公室吓得发抖。医问其故,他回答:“大门口有一只鸡要吃我。”医生说:“你忘了吗?你并不是一粒米呀。”他说:“我知道,我不是米,可是鸡知道吗?”

说在一个大医院的病房里,有个病人向查房医生抱怨房间里病友们的呻吟声吵得他睡不着。医生解释说,这没办法,对于濒死的病人,我们恐怕不能禁止他们什么。病人急了:“难道你们不能给这些快死的人单独安排一间病房吗?”医生平静地说:“我们安排了。这就是。”

有个苏联人去银行存100卢布,存完忧心忡忡。银行职员问他怎么了,他说担心银行会垮掉。职员说不用担心,上面有中央银行扛着。苏联人说:“那要是中央银行也垮了呢?”职员说:“还有苏联啊。”苏联人瞪大了眼睛:“要是苏联垮了呢?”职员说:“这么天大的好事,你就损失100卢布,回家偷着乐去吧你!”

有个苏联人被发配到西伯利亚,为了防止书信被检查,事先跟妻子说好,真话用蓝墨水写,假话用红墨水写。过了一段时间,妻子收到他的信,蓝墨水写着:“这里一切都好,吃的好,穿的暖,教官不打不骂,周末有电影,天天喝肉汤……”妻子很欣慰地把信收起来叠好,看到信纸背后写着:“只有一点不好,TMD找不到红墨水。”

一个男的晚上送女的回家,到了公寓门口,女的意犹未尽,对男的说:“到我家里喝杯咖啡再走吧。”男的说:“不好意思,我晚上不喝咖啡。”女的说:“那更应该上来,我刚想起来,家里正好没咖啡了!”
