In the Search for Something Larger Than Yourself

提示:这篇影评可能有剧透
This movie, to me, is unsettling, uneasy, and even disturbing. Unlike Life of Pi, this one is explicit from the very beginning, confronting your consciences and reflections. In this sense, Ang seems returned to his storytelling style at the time of Wedding Banquet, letting the sentiments unroll the story, and stir the audience even when the pace and development of the story seem somewhat stagnant.
How brutal it is to let us witness the only seemingly glowing hope, the emerging affair with the pretty cheerleader, dim. You know what Ang is getting at, but disturbingly, you don't know the answer either.
"God or country, you only need to find something larger than yourself." Thankfully, Ang did give us some consolation at the beginning. Yet at the end, when the same soldier speaks "Sometimes, you need to go somewhere else to grow up." I can't help but wonder, for Lynn, is the elsewhere battlefield, or the mundane life in peace.
