猜火车2 猜火车2 8.0分

这就是我们的青年和中年

萧玖

20年过去了,这群人又回到了爱丁堡,与过去的故事,自己的青春,相爱相杀的朋友们和解。世界变了,已经不是choose big television & washing machine 的年代,而是choose Facebook, Twitter & Snapchat的时代,大量东欧移民涌入爱丁堡,海洛因也早已不是流行的毒品。他们还是一无所有,而岁月已经爬上了他们的脸庞。

20年前的猜火车开头,在爱丁堡玩命奔跑的雷登,choose life:

“Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a big fucking television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disk players and electrical tin openers...choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on the couch, watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life.” 

20年前的猜火车结尾,在伦敦的桥...

20年过去了,这群人又回到了爱丁堡,与过去的故事,自己的青春,相爱相杀的朋友们和解。世界变了,已经不是choose big television & washing machine 的年代,而是choose Facebook, Twitter & Snapchat的时代,大量东欧移民涌入爱丁堡,海洛因也早已不是流行的毒品。他们还是一无所有,而岁月已经爬上了他们的脸庞。

20年前的猜火车开头,在爱丁堡玩命奔跑的雷登,choose life:

“Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a big fucking television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disk players and electrical tin openers...choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on the couch, watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life.” 

20年前的猜火车结尾,在伦敦的桥上一边大笑一边行走的雷登,choose life:

“This is the last of this sort of thing. I'm cleaning up and I'm moving on, going straight and choosing life. I'm looking forward to it already. I'm going to be just like you: the job, the family, the fucking big television, the washing machine, the car, the compact disc and electrical tin opener, good health, low cholesterol, dental insurance, mortgage, starter home, leisurewear, luggage, three-piece suite, DIY, game shows, junk food, children, walks in the park, nine to five, good at golf, washing the car, choice of sweaters, family Christmas, indexed pension, tax exemption, clearing the gutters, getting by, looking ahead, to the day you die. ”

20年后的猜火车2,毛头小子变成大叔后回家,浪漫主义变为现实主义。苏格兰口音没有变,蹲在高地上骂政府的那股劲儿已经没了,以及年轻时犯过的错,你到底忏悔了没有。你改变不了世界,你甚至没法如愿改变你自己。年轻时作死,结果是不能生育和心脏支架;是世界改变你,世界的洪流把青春期卷进去,中年危机吐出来。当年不管多混的小流氓,大概终于可以叶落归根回到家乡,再一次choose life。但其实,你的生活早已选择好了,在这样的选择下,才有了此时此刻的回归,还能给年轻人介绍一点作为长者的人生经验。

Choose life'... 'Choose life' was a well meaning slogan from a 1980's anti-drug campaign and we used to add things to it, so I might say for example, choose... designer lingerie, in the vain hope of kicking some life back into a dead relationship.Choose handbags, choose high-heeled shoes, cashmere and silk, to make yourself feel what passes for happy.Choose an iPhone made in China by a woman who jumped out of a window and stick it in the pocket of your jacket fresh from a South-Asian Firetrap.Choose Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and a thousand others ways to spew your bile across people you've never met.Choose updating your profile, tell the world what you had for breakfast and hope that someone, somewhere cares.Choose looking up old flames, desperate to believe that you don't look as bad as they do.Choose live-blogging, from your first wank 'til your last breath; human interaction reduced to nothing more than data.Choose ten things you never knew about celebrities who've had surgery.Choose screaming about abortion.Choose rape jokes, slut-shaming, revenge porn and an endless tide of depressing misogyny.Choose 9/11 never happened, and if it did, it was the Jews.Choose a zero-hour contract and a two-hour journey to work.And choose the same for your kids, only worse, and maybe tell yourself that it's better that they never happened.And then sit back and smother the pain with an unknown dose of an unknown drug made in somebody's fucking kitchen.Choose unfulfilled promise and wishing you'd done it all differently.Choose never learning from your own mistakes. Choose watching history repeat itself.Choose the slow reconciliation towards what you can get, rather than what you always hoped for. Settle for less and keep a brave face on it.Choose disappointment and choose losing the ones you love, then as they fall from view, a piece of you dies with them until you can see that one day in the future, piece by piece, they will all be gone and there'll be nothing left of you to call alive or dead.

Choose your future, Veronika. Choose life.

年轻人表示,大哥你到底在BB啥?

20年后的这一大段,就是雷登最终选择的生活,或者希望自己选择的生活,这也是我们正在选择的生活。我们都一样。

致敬腐朽的青春。致敬告别青春踏上社会洪流的自己。致敬虽然忍辱负重但始终努力认真生活的自己。

我知道responsible adult life有多苦多无奈,我真的知道。

这就是我们的青年和中年啊。
