Trisolaran Earth Culture in the Age of Deterrence

As far as the film itself is concerned, it is very good, and it also shows the spiritual core of the samurai just right. The strength of the American film industry is really strong. In addition, the film costumes are well-made and exquisite, and the performances of Japanese actors complement each other. It is one of Tom's masterpieces.

There are several flaws. First of all, although the Japanese villages, farmland and cherry blossoms in the film are very Japanese, the geographical environment is very obvious that it is not Japan, and the two armies were in a trance in Shire during the war. In addition, when the ninja assassinated Katsumoto, although he was masked, it was obvious that he was played by a black ghost. This is a bit too disgusting. It's really a Nig when it's wrapped tightly. Can Nig have a dime relationship with the ninja? Can you imagine the day when the Chinese film Daqin Fu or Tang Taizong appeared in Nigge? ? ?

If the above can be called flaws, then the biggest problem with this film is the position, that is, as a viewer, whose role you play.

When I was young, I only looked at the actions and scenes, and I felt that Tom was so handsome and Dolly was beautiful and gentle. It's a little strange when you're older and at a time when China-US confrontation with populism is prevalent. White people killed you on the battlefield, still lived in your house and subjugated your wife spiritually, and more like you than you, doesn't it feel bad to be a yellow race?

The character of the protagonist in the film is an officer suffering from the Ptsd disease of slaughtering Indians, who went to the East to find himself, achieve inner peace, and reinvigorate the new white man. But what you're doing in Japan in the process is essentially the same as what you're doing in the American West. It's just that the protagonist in Japan is dressed as a samurai without killing children and women. Seeing this clearly, you can feel the arrogance and self-righteousness of the Yankees, implying that this means that you have won the endorsement of samurai culture? I beat you, I'm more of a samurai, I'm more of you than you are. Murder is killing hearts, the more sophisticated the way of service in the film, the more wonderful and expressive the performance of the Japanese actors, the better the performance of the samurai culture, the more it reflects the brilliance of the white people. In the end, they all make wedding clothes for others. The power of the subtle cultural brainwashing of the Yankees is really evident.

Of course, cultural creations are all subjective, and people inevitably have their own positions. Maybe this is just a cultural conflict. I have no opinion on Tom, his performance is very professional.

    A good story and a good movie are touching. After returning to history and reality, it is necessary to look at Bushido and its cultural spirit objectively.

    The momentum is very impressive

The Last Samurai quotes

  • Algren: [narrating] They are an intriguing people. From the moment they wake they devote themselves to the perfection of whatever they pursue. I have never seem such discipline. I am surprised to learn that the word Samurai means, 'to serve', and that Katsumoto believes his rebellion to be in the service of the Emperor.

  • Algren: [narrating] Winter, 1877. What does it mean to be Samurai? To devote yourself utterly to a set of moral principles. To seek a stillness of your mind. And to master the way of the sword.
