アメリカンハッスルで気づかないといけないこと

 


雑誌TIMEでのアカデミー賞主演女優賞予想では、Amy Adamsがライターに推されていますね。

BEST ACTRESS
Amy Adams (American Hustle) / Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) / Sandra Bullock (Gravity) / Judi Dench (Philomena) / Meryl Streep (August: Osage County)

'Adams, the soul of the Hustle scam, is my choice, followed by the spritely-saintly Dench. But Blanchett is a lock for this prize.'



映画では、彼女がイギリス人に扮して詐欺を働いていて、英国なまりを話していたようなんですが、自分は英国なまりに気づきませんでした(汗)

WATCH: Amy Adams Explains Her British Accent in ‘American Hustle’
By Tom Brook | Posted on December 13th, 2013

Adams’ character Sydney Prosser affects a British accent to help give the impression that she has good London banking credentials to those poor individuals she’s trying to con.

“It is a fake British accent,” says Adams. “I think she liked to watch films and she probably watched a lot of interviews and styled herself to be quite posh in her mind.”




ドラマ『フレンズ』みたいにコミカルにやっていたら気づけたんでしょうけど。Bloody hellなんてわかりやすいものもありますし。あとレイチェルがインドアクセントをまねしたりしていますね。。。(苦笑)



さて、肝心の映画についてですが、個人的にはそんなに大騒ぎする映画じゃないだろうという下記の記事に賛成です。

‘American Hustle’ Is Overrated
We will be bullied into pretending to like it no longer! ‘American Hustle’ is nowhere near as good as we’re being told it is. So how is it possibly a Best Picture frontrunner?


All across the country, people are confessing. They are lurking with only their most trusted confidantes in shadowy corners. They glance around nervously to make sure no one is in earshot, because, from what they hear, what they are about to reveal should bring them great shame.

“I didn’t really like American Hustle,” one whispers, heart pulsing like Justin Bieber on drag race night.

Eyes darting once more to ensure that they are truly in a cone of confidence, the other replies, overwhelmed to have found a kindred spirit: “I actually thought it was bad, too!”

Yes, all around the country people are coming to terms with the reality that American Hustle was just, at best, a pretty good movie (or, at worst, kind of a hot mess) and the shame that they’ve been bullied into feeling about that realization. That’s because somehow, some way, a group of people we’ll groaningly call “tastemakers” found some mountaintop to climb and declare it the best movie of the year. And we’ve been forced to listen to them, because they are on a mountaintop and we are not and that’s just apparently how these things work.


確かにエイミーアダムスやクリスチャンベール、ジェニファーローレンスなどの演技はすごかったですけど、作品としては飛び抜けているような感じはしませんでした。。。
