可爱的失败者:《战利品》剧评

在Jesse Eisenberg自编自演的新喜剧《战利品》中他饰演Ben,一个没朋友的烟枪,酒鬼,懒虫,住在爸妈给他付租金的纽约高楼里,自诩为前卫导演(虽然他没一点像)。有一天他偶遇了小学老同学Ted,Ted邀请他与另外一个老熟人(Sarah,现在是Ted的未婚妻)一起去自己的公寓,童年的回忆——有好有坏,不过大多数是坏的——像潮水一样涌来。 单恋Sarah多年的Ben会向她表明心迹吗?她又会作何反应?当他事无巨细地讲述自己八岁时做的一个关于她的肉麻的梦的时候,她会如何回应?(这个梦把整场戏的恶心程度提高了大概百分之一千)他的室友Kalyan在Ted奢华的华尔街公司面试的结果如何?可亲又真诚的Kalyan最终能逃离Ben的魔爪,给自己找个新住所吗?毕竟他们俩简直水火不容。 Eisenberg是个重度话痨患者,在舞台上奔忙不止,像个节节拼凑起来的瘦长苦行僧,从餐桌到沙发到座椅到卧室,总是精力充沛,总是喋喋不休,一时懒洋洋地伸展四肢,然后就像充满了电一样从头开始,循环往复。 至于说Kalyan,电视上的Kunal Nayyar(《生活大爆炸》角色)甜美可爱又搞笑,跟坏脾气的Ben如此不同,这两者注定是一对冤家。Kalyan的女朋友Reshma丝毫不避讳承认自己对Ben的厌恶,Annapurna Sriram演的十分出彩;至于Ted和Sarah,Michael Zegen和Erin Darke的演出也可圈可点。 导演Scott Elliott独具匠心地策划了这场演出(Ben无论怎么努力都无法控制自己的怒火,这引发了剧末两场情绪失控的对抗),这一切都发生在Derek McLane细节考究的的布景之中,Ben的起居室占据了布景的前部和中部……挺像野蛮粗犷的Ben本人的。 评论:Stuart R. Brynien (注:战利品将在42街的Pershing Square Signature中心上演到六月28号)
