At the Shanghai Film Festival this year, at the forum of “Du Qifeng Dialogue Oliver Stone – The Realistic Influence of Films”, discussed the real impact of the film? In the context of the more obvious “business attributes” of today’s films, this question is even more difficult to answer.
Oliver Stone mentioned a company and two movies in Hollywood. The company is Disney. He believes that all the real elements of Disney’s films, such as history, have been beautified. This kind of beautification has even reached the level of “false”, which will give the audience a wrong understanding. The films mentioned are “General Patton” and “Saving Private Ryan”. He believes that these two films, under the banner of “anti-war”, are actually promoting the war, the “crazy” war scenes in the movie, the slightest Can’t see the reflection on the war.
On the contrary, what is expressed in these films is a kind of “respectful” mentality, which is a kind of publicity for the battlefield heroes. He believes that these films indirectly affect the American public’s views on modern wars such as the Vietnam War and the Iraq War. So what are the historical views and values that individuals should follow when shooting these real historical themes? His point of view is to present things as much as possible in the grand background, let the audience judge themselves, just like “Homer’s Epic”, it should be “from top to bottom” God’s perspective.
