The solemn trembling of artistic sense

The exciting rhythm of the symphony melody runs through the beginning and end of "Death of the Holy Deer". Yorgos completed this sacrifice in a solemn, elegant and artistic way. Unlike the originality of "Single Men's Zoo", it is not as rigorous but interesting. This time, "Sacred Deer" has only a chilling thriller. .

The whole story can be said to be a fantasy version of doctor-patient disputes. The solemn soundtrack tells the audience at the very beginning that "things are never that simple", and indeed, after the ambiguous and sweet flattery of the patient's family members, morbid and bizarre behaviors appear; Feet and feet), the terror and unease that spread like black magic, the protagonist's family has fallen into the quagmire of the curse, like a prairie fire that cannot be stopped, and has to burn, burn, and burn out.

The truth that cannot be explained by science, as the patient's son said, "Killing me won't solve the problem." This reminds me of the theory of the black couple in "The Master Key", "Some old spells are powerful because you believe in them subconsciously, and if you don't believe them, they won't work." It can make people gain strength through hypnosis, and fear instilling fear can also be deeply rooted in other people's hearts; Martin's strange paranoia, said to be good, is a unique character, but it is true that people have had suspicions and fears about him, so when he said After saying those seemingly absurd words, the audience believed him preconceivedly, and the male protagonist also took the same position, so the curse spread and took effect.

There is actually a similar setting about "The Witch". The reason why vvitch has successfully become a witch is because everyone is convinced of the impossible, no matter how absurd and unreasonable it is.

Going far, the focus of "The Death of the Sacred Deer" may not lie in the above, the psychological changes of the characters at the moment of the incident, the fatalism that is difficult to escape, the state that still changes after the end, etc., are all cobwebs compiled by the director, warm water Cooking frogs, you can't get rid of that uncomfortable feeling for a long time after reading it. A solemn trembling, probably this feeling.

There is a film that I can't remember the name of. The end: the tortured family, seemingly calm but in reality, embraced each other with expressionless faces, the mother handed the pistol to the father, and committed suicide in the warm bed together. , to be freed from the nightmare sequelae together. Perhaps the one who is truly redeemed is the "Sacred Deer" who retired earlier, and the rest of the survivors will spend the rest of their lives in the shadows, a very smart and successful revenge, isn't it? The long and deep corridors of the hospital are like an abyss.
