风中奇缘

除去各种形式不谈,我坚信阿凡达的本质主题和Pocahontas是一致的。后者虽然是动画片,还更加现实一点,尤其是考虑到历史上的Pocahontas后来真的去了伦敦,以西化(东化?)贵妇的打扮出现在画像里。最终,她以23岁左右的年纪客死他乡,或者对她来说,在John Smith的船只登陆弗吉尼亚的小镇之后,就再也没有故乡他乡可言了。

卡梅隆失意之际,重温迪斯尼经典金曲。

开头对白:(What do you mean by savage?)..What you mean is not like you.

You think I’m an ignorant savage
And you’ve been so many places
I guess it must be so
But still I cannot see
If the savage one is me
How can there be so much that you don’t know?
You don’t know …

You think you own whatever land you land on
The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once, never wonder what they’re worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
The heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

How high will the sycamore grow?
If you cut it down, then you’ll never know
And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

For whether we are white or copper skinned
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the Earth and still
All you’ll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind

我尤其爱这句”The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim”,多么后工业社会啊,多么批判理论啊。
