亚当·柯蒂斯(Adam Curtis)名言

Sometimes history repeats itself. And sometimes it doesn't.

有时历史会重演。 有时并非如此。

Nobody trusts anyone in authority today. It is one of the main features of our age. Wherever you look, there are lying politicians, crooked bankers, corrupt police officers, cheating journalists and double-dealing media barons, sinister children's entertainers, rotten and greedy energy companies, and out-of-control security services.

今天没有人相信权威。 这是我们这个时代的主要特征之一。 无论您在哪里看,都有撒谎的政客,弯曲的银行家,腐败的警官,作弊的记者和双重交易的媒体大亨,险恶的儿童艺人,腐败而贪婪的能源公司以及失控的安全服务。

'American Honey' takes you into the feelings of a girl travelling through the United States while giddily in love. You see modern America through her intense feelings. But again and again the film pulls the rug out from under your feet - scenes never play out as you expect.

“美国蜂蜜”带您了解一个女孩在美国度过的时光,在恋爱中的感觉。 通过她强烈的感情,您会看到现代美国。 但是电影一次又一次地从脚下拉出地毯-场景从未像您期望的那样播放。

In our age of individualism, we see computers as ways through which we can express our individuality. But the truth is that the computers are really good at spotting the very opposite. The computers can see how similar we are, and they then have the ability to agglomerate us together into groups that have the same behaviours.

在我们个人主义时代,我们将计算机视为表达个性的方式。 但事实是,计算机确实善于发现相反的事实。 这些计算机可以看到我们有多相似,然后它们就有能力将我们凝聚在一起,成为具有相同行为的群体。

亚当·柯蒂斯

We live in a time when all elites, whether on the left or the right, believe in rigid rules that say there is no alternative to the present political and economic system.

我们生活在一个时代,所有精英阶层,不管是左派还是右派,都信奉严格的规则,这些规则说,目前的政治和经济体系别无选择。

亚当·柯蒂斯

One of the guiding beliefs of our consuming age is that we are all free and independent individuals. That we can choose to do pretty much what we want, and if we can't, then it's bad. But at the same time, co-existing alongside this, there is a completely different, parallel universe where we all seem meekly to do what those in power tell us to do.

我们消费时代的指导思想之一是我们都是自由和独立的个体。 我们可以选择做几乎想做的事情,如果不能做,那就不好了。 但是,与此同时,并存的是一个完全不同的平行宇宙,我们所有人似乎都在温柔地执行当权者告诉我们的事情。

亚当·柯蒂斯

Documentaries shouldn't just reflect the world: they should try and explain why reality is like it is.

纪录片不仅应该反映世界,还应该尝试解释现实为何如此。

亚当·柯蒂斯

In 'Mad Men,' we watch a group of people who live in a prosperous society that offers happiness and order like never before in history and yet are full of anxiety and unease. They feel there is something more, something beyond. And they feel stuck.

在“疯子”中,我们看到一群人生活在一个繁荣的社会中,他们提供了幸福和秩序,这是历史上从未有过的,但充满了焦虑和不安。 他们觉得还有更多,更多。 他们感到被困住了。
