Strip Search : คนค้นเปลือย

     strip search คือการค้นตัวผู้ต้องสงสัยโดยการให้แก้ผ้าหมด ำหรับภาพยนตร์เรื่อง Strip Search นี้เป็นภาพยนตร์แนวดราม่าที่สร้างขึ้นมาเพื่อายทางช่อง HBO ซึ่งออกอากาศไปในวันที่ 27 เมษายน 2004 หนังพาเราสำรวจเสรีภาพของปัจเจกชนจากผลที่ตามมาของเหตุการณ์ 11 กันยายน 2001 ภาพยนตร์กำกับโดยผู้กำกับระดับบรมครู Sidney Lumet และเขียนบทโดย Tom Fontana (จากซีรีส์ oz)ะนำแสดงโดย Glenn Close และ Maggie Gyllenhaal
     Strip Search เป็นภาพยนตร์ที่มีเนื้อหารุนแรง เล่าถึง 2 เหตุการณ์ที่คู่ขนานกันไป ซึ่งแต่ละเหตุการณ์ประกอบไปด้วยบทสนทนาที่เหมือนกัน เรื่องที่ 1 เป็นเรื่องราวของ Linda Sykes (
Gyllenhaal) หญิงสาวชาวอเมริกันคนหนึ่งที่ถูกควบคุมตัวโดยรัฐบาลจีน แล้วถูกสอบสวนโดย เจ้าหน้าที่ทหาร (Ken Leung) ส่วนอีกเรื่องหนึ่งเป็นเรื่องราวของ Sharif Bin Said (Bruno Lastra) ชายอาหรับคนหนึ่งที่ถูกควบคุมตัวในนิวยอร์กแล้วถูกซักถามโดย เจ้าหน้าที่ FBI (Close) โดยที่ตัวละครทั้งสองตัวนั้นเป็นปัญญาชนที่ถูกกักขังตัวด้วยหลักฐานที่ไม่แน่ชัดนัก และถูกซักถามเกี่ยวกับพฤติกรรมที่อาจจะเกี่ยวข้องกับผู้ก่อการร้าย
    
Strip Search เป็นภาพยนตร์ที่ถูกสร้างโดย HBOก็จริง แต่ถูกถอดออกไปจากฐานข้อมูลในเว็บไซต์ของHBO และไม่สามารถดูได้จาก HBO on demand อีกแล้วซึ่งไม่ทราบเหตุผลที่แน่ชัด จึงทำให้เป็นภาพยนตร์เรื่องเยี่ยมเรื่องหนึ่งที่หาดูยาก (ดังรีวิวข้างล่าง จะเห็นคนดูให้ 10เต็ม10)
     ผู้กำกับ
Sidney Lumet คือผู้กำกับบรมครู ที่สร้างภาพยนตร์ระดับคลาสสิคโด่งดังมากมาย ซึ่งส่วนใหญ่เป็นภาพยนตร์ที่มีเนื้อหาและประเด็นที่เข้มข้น ตลอดจนวิภาคทัศนคติในสังคมอย่างร้ายกาจ อาทิเช่น Dog Day Afternoon (1975), 12 Angry Men (1957),
Network (1976), Serpico (1973) เป็นต้น

A brave, important and powerful film

In the post 9/11 world, fear has been indoctrinated into most aspects of our lives. Governments worldwide manipulated and capitalized on this for their own gain - financially, politically and strategically. The Bush-driven Patriot Act has seen many people (guilty and otherwise no doubt) detained, tortured and dehumanized. Since a large percentage of the population are unaware that political agendas of media owners exist, they passively believe what they see on their nightly TV news or read in their daily newspapers. They are taught to fear the unknown, to trust their leaders implicitly (because they use nice words in speeches like ''freedom'' and ''family'') and not to question motives.

''Strip Search'' is a deliberate attempt to throw the light of reality into this collective ''un''consciousness.

The storyline involves parallel stories of two people being detained in custody: an American woman in China, and a Middle Eastern man in the US. By using almost exactly the same dialogue, we are shown how to think outside the usual spectrum, and to feel compassion for both people. Without the twin story of the American woman, people would undoubtedly walk away from this feel feeling a lot differently.

The acting is astonishing. One feels that this film meant more than just another job to the actors involved. I admire them immensely for their efforts.

Hopefully this film will change a few minds, and that as a result - the world might become just that little bit better.

Eye-opening

Shocking! Every American needs to see this movie. A previous comment titled "Duh", at first glance, makes us all seem as though we are somehow keenly aware that civil rights are being denied...in America. But until I saw this movie, I couldn''t parallel being arrested, tortured, and denied access to any outside help in China, to the same thing happening here. Somehow, the idea of these things taking place here didn''t seem so terribly awful, and fearful, until I put myself in both of the actors roles as victim.

Strip Search is one of the best, thought provoking movies I have ever seen. The acting was absolutely superb; making it easy to be drawn into every scene, and Maggie Gyllenhaal''s performance was no less than stellar to that end. For short, I was IMPRESSED!

Wow!

This was quite possibly the BEST hour of television that I have ever seen. I give major kudos to HBO for not backing down on a sensitive topic and producing a fantastic show. I admit that some of the nudity was gratuitous, but I know that using it was trying to make the situations as realistic as possible. I''m a law school student, and I was horrified that people, in our country or in others, do not protest that they have some basic human and civil rights in interrogation settings. I don''t usually watch HBO because I don''t like the programming, but I am glad I tuned in to watch. Again, this was a great show that everyone should watch. Make more shows like this! Don''t be afraid to touch on sensitive topics.

Strip Search is a drama film made for the HBO network, first aired on April 27, 2004. The film explores the status of individual liberties in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the approval of the USA PATRIOT Act. The film was directed by Sidney Lumet and written by Oz creator Tom Fontana. It stars Glenn Close, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ken Leung, Bruno Lastra and Dean Winters. The film was first screened at the Monaco Film Premiere with Lumet in person presenting it, in the presence of Fontana.

Plot

The film is built around two main parallel stories, each containing almost identical dialogues. One story line involves Linda Sykes (Gyllenhaal), an American woman detained in the People''s Republic of China, being interrogated by a military officer (Leung). In the other storyline, Sharif Bin Said (Lastra), an Arab man detained in New York City, is interrogated by two FBI agents (Winters and Close). Both characters are graduate students detained with no hard evidence and interrogated about unspecified activities which may or may not be related to terrorist plots.

In the course of the increasingly brutal interrogations, both Sykes and Bin Said are strip searched against their will by their interrogators and are subjected to a cavity search. In both cases the protagonists appear to have only tenuous connections with the suspected terrorist plots.

The film ends with the question: "Must security and safety come at the price of freedom?"

Titles are Pointless

This movie was quite a profound piece of work. It involved a very unique process of film making in which the same screenplay was used to tell two different stories. This process is supposed to invoke in the viewer that the viewer shows sympathy for one character but not for another. When I watched it I consciously knew that it was the same words being spoken but then yet I did not understand why I felt sympathy for one character but not for the other speaking the same words. This is a very good movie to watch in the post 9/11 world in which the way America treats the rest of the world. Quite frankly I believe Americans(I being one of them) do not treat the rest of the world with enough respect and we disregard any of their thoughts. This movie shows the American viewer how a foreigner might see America. This movie totally blew me away. It is dumbfounding.


Thought-provoking presentation

I found STRIP SEARCH a thought-provoking and well done piece by some very talented and courageous artists. An example of how TV/Film can be used as a tool to get us to think and look at our world, our times and ourselves. --- BRAVO! and thank you to all involved in this project.

The cast, the direction, the script, the crossover dialogue between the two interrogation all worked for me. And the choice of using nudity? How could they have done it otherwise? It really hit home the humiliation and terror of such practices. A somewhat prophetic piece in light of recent events and the exposure of America''s tactics in Iraq.

I highly recommend that people not only see it, but talk about it. Simply put ... excellent.

One question -- Has Lumet EVER made a bad film? I certainly can''t think of one. If he has, I haven''t seen it.

Interesting Concept

The short film itself was an interesting concept. Unlike normal films that are meant to tell a story this was a well constructed film to ask very basic fundamental question. Security or Liberty. It''s Nothing new, "The man who trades freedom for security does not deserve nor will he ever receive either." - Benjamin Franklin

This isn''t some crackpot theory that conspiracy theorist are trying to pull on anyone. These are the same rights that Americans fought and died for this is there Consitution, laws that over the years citizens have taken for granted. This film might not be realistic but the idea behind the way it trys to show the viewer exactly what one can loose by giving up ones rights for freedom. If you were arrested today for any crime you could use the rigths that were given to you as citizen of your country with the exception of terrorists. Terrorists? what are they? you might come up with an image of a Muslim man as viewed in the film. But this is mistaken perception "the patriot act" doesn''t say inclusive to only Muslims it says Anyone who is against the government plan.

If you don''t believe me then just goggle "The Patriot Act" actually read it, they don''t hide anything truly Orwell would be rolling in his grave at this bill. Also if you can get a hold of a German History Text book, and read the laws in acted during pre-WW2 Nazi Germany Era, they created there own Patriot Act, and finally introduced the gestapo. Secret Police to arrest anyone who was Ploting against there own government.

We are all in a world of trouble and the players involved at the highest levels are never what they seem. I suggest for anyone who is interested in learning somewhat of the real truth visit Question911.com they won''t show any of this in the media.

Indefinate Detention, Psychological Rendering...Are You Ready?

There is a Woody Allen Movie where an officer of the Law asks Woody for his driver license and he pulls it out and tears it up in front of the cop saying how he just can''t handle authority figures. I''ve often wanted to try that, but I have a child.

Preparing my child for travel and situations that this film portrays is every parents responsibility, IMHO. We have inalienable rights as humans, some listed in the constitution and as it says others not listed. In the fair use doctrine of the current copyright law I can download this movie for the purpose of writing this review as an important film for parents to see. I decide what Fair use is, not some SOPA board.

Yes, I profited from this movie and so should you and Stanley. Just read some of the reviews of others that saw it and decide for yourself if it isn''t a thought provoking movie for some, and drivel to others. That''s good enough for me to consider because education is the consideration of ideas that I don''t always agree with. Now imagine it''s your son or daughter. And you ended a sentence with a preposition, OMG.

With the signing of NDAA last month, this film has to be distributed more widely, I want the rights to distribute it because it talks about American exceptionalism and the reasons we are against torture and for inalienable rights including due process. As Phillip Zimbardo says, these situations are situational and with just a little pushing you could become that interrogator or worse, the subject of the "Rendering".

If your children are like the children in the opening of the film and agree that giving up a little freedom for some security, they will have neither. So what do we do about it? I''m looking for that film, any suggestions? Don''t miss this opportunity to replenish the tree of liberty peacefully before the Mountain crumbles. We are the sovereign kings of our own destiny, the experiment continues with many bumps in the road, teach your children well. Lawson

Say what you want, this film makes you think...

if people are truly not hypocrites and believe in the fundamental moral value that you should view and treat others as we would want them to view and treat us… then this film will make you think… it is this fundamental human value that really separates us from other animals… well, some of us… this film makes us see our biases towards others and makes us wonder about our outlook on the world… I film was well done and would recommend it to anyone who has a open mind and is not too single minded…
