これで話すスピードはどれくらい

 
再びバードマンねたです。映画だと随分と長く話している気がしたんですが、Youtubeで見てみると1分ほどでした。話すスピードは1分間で200語ほどですが、それほど早いというほどではないんですね。娘にグサグサくることを言われてしまうシーンです。



RIGGAN
It’ s my chance to do some work that actually means something.
SAM
Means something to who? You had a career before the third comic book movie, before people started to forget who was inside the bird costume. You're doing a play based on a book that was written 60 years ago, for a thousand rich, old white people whose only real concern is gonna be where they go to have their cake and coffee when it's over. Nobody gives a shit but you. And let's face it, Dad, you’re not doing this for the sake of art. You’re doing this because you want to feel relevant again. Well, guess what there's a whole world out there where people fight to be relevant every single day. And you act like it doesn't even exist! Things are happening in a place that you ignore, a place that, by the way, has already forgotten about you. I mean who’s the fuck are you? You hate bloggers. You mock twitter. You don't even have a Facebook page. You're the one who doesn't exist. You're doing this because you're scared to death, like the rest of us, that you don't matter. And you know what? You're right. You don't. It's not important. OK. You're not important. Get used to it.
Silence. Riggan seems devastated, and Sam can see that.
Dad...

Words checked = [201]
Words in Oxford 3000™ = [94%]


単なる自分メモの投稿ですが、一応フレーズチェックです。Get used to itに関しては、個人的には今回の例のように、よくないことを受け入れる、慣れる、といった意味に使われることが多い気がします。

Let’s face it. 現実を見る
Nobody gives a shit but you. And let's face it, Dad, you’re not doing this for the sake of art. You’re doing this because you want to feel relevant again.
誰も何とも思っていない、お父さんだけ。認めなよ、芸術のためにやっているんじゃないでしょ。これをやるのはまた存在感を示したいだけ。

Get used to it. (悪いことなど)慣れる、受け入れる
You're the one who doesn't exist. You're doing this because you're scared to death, like the rest of us, that you don't matter. And you know what? You're right. You don't. It's not important. OK. You're not important. Get used to it.
お父さんは存在感ゼロなの。これをやるのは死ぬのが怖いからでしょ。他の皆と同じ。お父さんはどうでもいい存在なの。分かる。そうよ。お父さんはたいしたことないの。わかる。大物なんかじゃないの。もう慣れたらどう。


バードマンのスクリプトが公開されていましたが、実際のものとは少し違っていました。

Sam (CONT'D)

この映画は内輪ネタも多く、類型的なキャラクター設定を大げさにしている印象です。コミカルな感じがするのはそのためでしょうか。メディア取材を受けているところですが、小難しく語ろうとする記者、ゴジップ記者、英語のよくわからないアジア系記者が登場しています。



話している内容は真逆のことなのに、聞き取れたフレーズだけで勘違いの反応をしてしまう。外国語学習者としては笑うに笑えないところですね(苦笑)スクリプトにはHANとありますが、日本人記者も念頭にあるのではないかと勘ぐってしまいます。

GABRIEL
Are you afraid at all that people will say you're doing this play to battle the impression that you're a washed-up super hero?
RIGGAN
No. Absolutely not. And that’s exactly why 20 years ago I said no to do Birdman 4.
HAN
Birdman 4??? You do Birdman 4???

こちらもスクリプトとはちょくちょく変わっていますね。

GABRIEL
Why does somebody go from playing the lead in a comic book franchise to adapting Raymond Carver for the stage?
Riggan tries to remain calm.
GABRIEL (CONT’D)
I mean, as you're probably aware, Barthes said, “The cultural work done in the past by gods and epic sagas is now done by laundry detergent commercials and comic strip characters.” It's a big leap you've taken...
Riggan shifts nervously.

RIGGAN
Well... Absolutely. As you said... that Barthes said... Birdman, like Icarus...
CLARA
Hang on. Who's this Barthes guy? Which Birdman was he in?
GABRIEL
Roland Barthes was a French philosopher, who--
CLARA
Oh. Okay. Sure. Now, is it true you’ve been injecting yourself with semen from baby pigs?
RIGGAN
What?
CLARA
As a method of facial rejuvenation.
RIGGAN
Who told you that?
CLARA
It was tweeted by... (checks her notes)
@prostatewhispers.
RIGGAN It's a lie.
CLARA
I know. But did you do it?
RIGGAN No!
GABRIEL
Are you afraid at all that people will say you're doing this play to battle the impression that you're a washed-up super hero?
What?
RIGGAN
No. I’m not. And that’s exactly why 20 years ago I refused to do Birdman 4.
HAN
Birdman 4??? You do Birdman 4???
Jake opens the door and the camera pans to him.
JAKE
Okay. That's enough for today.
Thank you for coming. We’re expecting some great pieces from you...
