love and prejudice

In 2001, when I just went to college, a certain issue of "Crazy English" magazine had an excerpt from Hitchcock's version of "Butterfly Dream". The film and television resources of that era were really scarce, so I could only listen to the tape repeatedly to infer the neurotic heroine and the violent hero based on the sound, which constituted all my imagination of the show.

The movie is based on the concept of "ex-girlfriend, cinnabar mole in my heart". The docile white rose PK the unruly red rose, gained and lost, youthful exuberance and morbid disappearance. There are all kinds of elements in the story, including the Mary Sue element of the overbearing president falling in love with Cinderella in "50 Shades of Grey", the gothic arson scene in "Jane Eyre", the ghost of "Wuthering Heights", and the fairy tale. Curiosity killed the cat, so he insisted on opening the hidden door to discover the secret of blood expansion (there is also an article in "Burning Boat")

The human brain has two systems, fast and slow. The daily information is overwhelming in geometric multiples. In order to operate with the lowest consumption, the human brain often chooses the fast system to connect with external information, which is why the heroine is silly and white. The image of Jia Weak Chicken appears, accepts external information without hesitation, and then draws a completely wrong conclusion: his husband still loves his ex-wife deeply, and he lives in the shadow of ineffective resistance to the imaginary enemy and wastes his happy time. The daily anxiety, jealousy and terror caused by cognitive biases produced a lot of harmful adrenal hormones, which deepened the effect of hallucinations, and it was not until Mrs. Denver was cornered that she began to think and resist: I am Mrs. Dove, and not Rebeca

3B: Breeding, brain, Beauty, Really?

They say that a good wife needs to have 3 conditions, upbringing, brain and beauty, again, this is a prejudice, it is obvious that 3B belongs to the upper half of the quality iceberg model, and a real high performer (high performance contributor) , the most important qualities come from the lower part, such as kindness, altruism, love and tolerance, etc., and this part is covered by Rebecca's 3B, Rebecca with 3B is obviously a strong individual contributor, she can hold the most dazzling party, Both men and women are dumped under their pomegranate skirts, but when it comes to the role of wife, this role is clearly incompetent.

So, instead of being surrounded by ghosts, everyone at Mandela Manor is plagued by cognitive biases.

Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again. It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive, and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me. Then, like all dreamers, I was possessed of a sudden with supernatural powers and passed like a spirit through the barrier before me. The drive wound away in front of me, twisting and turning as I advanced I was aware that a change had come upon it. Nature had come into her own again, and, little by little, had encroached upon the drive with long, tenacious fingers. On and on wound the poor thread that had once been our drive, and finally there was Manderley-Manderley , secretive and silent. Time could not mar the perfect symmetry of those walls. Moonlight can play odd tricks upon the fancy-and suddenly it seemed to me that light came from the windows.And then a cloud came upon the moon and hovered an instant like a dark hand before a face. The illusion went with it. I looked upon a desolate shell--with no whisper of the past about its staring walls. We can never go back to Manderley again. That much is certain. But sometimes in my dreams I do go back-to the strange days of my life-which began for me in the South of France…

    Although the director said that the film he made was a failure, it was a big success in the end. It should be because he had too high demands on himself. The color change of the film is not only a change in color, but also echoes the advancement of the plot, which is a bonus.

    Rebecca is not only the embryonic form of "Mugfin", but also the embryonic form of femme fatale in many noir films. The design of this character is great. In fact, in a sense, this film is the story of the mansion, and the mansion is the real main character of this film and the biggest nightmare. Hitchcock's first work after he went to the United States also won him the only Oscar for Best Picture.
