アカデミー賞主演男優賞は?

 


ダラスバイヤーズクラブという映画を週末に見てきました。他に興味をそそられる映画がなかったという消極的な理由から見たのですが素晴らしい映画でした。マシューマコノヒーが昨年GQのメンオブザイアーに選ばれた理由もこれで納得できました。まさに下記の部分にあるような印象をマコノヒーにも抱いていました(苦笑)

Men of the Year
Matthew McConaughey: Leading Man of the Year 2013
The McCon-aissance is old news. The question is, what do we call the phase he's in now? The one in which he not only out-Gekkos Gordon Gekko (The Wolf of Wall Street) but turns in one of the most transformative performances in memory (Dallas Buyers Club)? The Pax-McConaughey? We're going with the McConaugh-reign. Long may it last!

“I have found myself defending him to people who don't really know him, who for some reason feel very antagonistically toward him. He's a good guy, he's great-looking, has a perfect body, his career's through the roof,” he says. “People resented that, and the way they justified it is, He has never done a movie of substance.” Harrelson laughs. “They can't say that anymore.”

HIVに感染した男性の物語はお涙頂戴のストーリーになりがちですが、この映画から感じ取れるのは生き抜こうとする力です。生きるということはきれいごとではないという部分も含めてうまく描かれていると思います。説明的にならずに映像に語らせる方法はトピックがデリケートなものなのでむしろ好感が持てるものでした。ワシントンポストの映画評に賛成です。

‘Dallas Buyers Club’ movie review: Matthew McConaughey triumphs
By Ann Hornaday, Published: November 7

Director Jean-Marc Vallée keeps “Dallas Buyers Club” real by rejecting high gloss in favor of a more spare, stripped-down visual style; reportedly he used only natural light to film, which keeps the often seedy subculture that Woodroof inhabits from becoming too cozy. But if that world — of trailer-park orgies and cheap motels, drug addicts and hookers — isn’t all sweetness and light, it isn’t devoid of heart. The soft, vulnerable soul of “Dallas Buyers Club” is a transsexual named Rayon (Leto), a misfit and fellow AIDS patient whom Woodroof initially spurns but who eventually becomes his business partner.

As a rousing, reality-inspired tale of someone sticking it to The Man, as well as a sober social history and sentimental chronicle of unlikely friendship and love, “Dallas Buyers Club” could have gone wrong in myriad ways, most of them having to do either with overkill or pompous self-seriousness. But Vallée, working with a lean, lively script by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack, neatly avoids excess, letting Woodroof’s terrific yarn stand on its own and getting out of the way of his extraordinary actors, who channel the story without condescension or manipulative cheats. McConaughey and Leto may have the showiest roles, but Garner deserves equal praise for her sensitive, straightforward performance.

ゴールデングローブ賞では主演男優賞と助演男優賞を分け合いましたが、TIMEの予想通りアカデミー賞でも同じ事が起きるかもしれません。





BEST ACTOR
Christian Bale (American Hustle) / Bruce Dern (Nebraska) / Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street) / Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) / Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club)

'Bale gained weight, McConaughey lost a lot; both are superb. I'd pick the Texan. So will the voters. They love a reformed movie star.'

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips) / Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) / Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave) / Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street) / Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club)

'If McConaughey is the heart of Dallas, Leto, as the transgender Rayon, is its sweet, damaged, crafty soul. He deserves to win, and will.'

地味な映画ではありますが、とても良い映画でオススメできるものです。興味がある方は是非。
