Royston to direct Broadway Beng 4

--
SINGAPORE: In an interview last year, Singapore’s favourite “bad-boy” film-maker Royston Tan told TODAY that 2009 was going to be a year of rest for him. Apparently, “rest” in this self-confessed Ah Beng’s vocabulary means “direct a stage musical”. 
And not just any musical, but one starring another famous beng — Broadway Beng, that is. 
“Selena (Tan, Dim Sum Dolly and founder of Dream Academy) called me up and asked if I was interested. She felt I could add freshness to the show,” the 881 and 12 Lotus director told TODAY at the Dream Academy press conference held at Clarke Quay on Friday. 
“I actually took two weeks to decide! But I’ve always been a big fan of Broadway Beng, so I knew I most likely would say yes,” he added, with a laugh. 
In his first stage-directing gig of his career (but not his first foray into theatre having played multi-media designer for Drama Box’s A Stranger at Home in 2006), the 32-year-old will mount the fourth instalment of Broadway Beng, titled Broadway Beng! Jiak Liu Lian!, at the Esplanade on December 3.

    好像有一点慢。知道这部片很久了,但直到上两星期才从新加坡把DVD买回来。

    边看边截频边写感想。只是最后的结尾让我措手不及。将百叶窗涂黑,他的世界就这样封闭了吗?自己给自己的解释是导演原本就是要带出一种愁的感觉。这种结尾或许就是要延续这种气息,不让其消散。

    小伍剪阴毛、关掉老人们的音乐、
    猛喝咳药水,JUNG逼真的呕吐、尝试上吊、超久的闭气,看到39:36我已忍不住写下“这部片很多stunt!估计是导演小时候做过或想做没做到的”。

    电影里表达的讯息和性格,让我觉得很强烈,后来看了关于介绍才知道那是你得特点,so called "bad bo filmmaker"。

    最后JUNG离开后的半夜四点半,小伍竟去将时钟的时针和分针粘住。这信号是多么强烈,他企图让时间停住!

    1:21:20,关于JUNG的物件随着背景音乐有序地消失,唯独是土地公的橙又多回了两个。这带给了我一丝惊喜,我感觉到了导演的细腻,竟在小细节上作了交代。

    整体画面的唯美难以形容,我只有透过截出感动自己的画面以明志。

    你在the making 的最后说的话因彻底地道出了所引起的共鸣,所以我记了下来。这些听似煽情的心声,在你浑厚诚恳的声音念出来,很真实。

    “我觉得一部对白不多的电影也能感动别人。

    因为 听不到的声音 可以用心来感受
    说不出的言语 可以用眼神来流露
    触摸不到的人 可以用回忆来重温

    那就是我心里的4点半”

    加油~ top
