【聊了什么】

我们和《这集我看过》的主播徐天聊了马丁·斯科塞斯1976年的电影《出租汽车司机》如何反映和预示了美国社会与政治的多层次变迁。从西部片的传统概念到70年代城市衰败的背景下的男女关系描绘,我们揭开电影中隐藏的社会文化纹理。通过主角Travis的故事,我们探索了片中角色的道德虚无、孤独感以及与Incel群体的联系,以及它们如何呼应与当代的极右派政治。

本期节目由《美轮美换》和《这集我看过》联合制作播出。

【 What We Talked About】

American Roulette, together with Xu Tian, host of 这集我看过, discuss Martin Scorsese's 1976 film "Taxi Driver." In this episode, we unpack the movie’s reflection on and foresight into the multifaceted changes within American society and politics. We start from the traditional motifs of Western films and further dive into the depiction of male-female dynamics amidst the 70’s urban decay, dissecting how the film handles the nuanced socio-cultural layers of that time. We examine protagonist Travis and his journey, his moral nihilism, pervasive sense of isolation, and its affiliations with the Incel movement – and of course, how all these elements still echo within contemporary far-right political discourse.

This episode is co-produced by The American Roulette and 这集我看过.
