The first time I saw Patti was in Woody Allen's film - Vicky Christina Barcelona.
Though my main focuses were Javier and Penelope, Patti gently slipped into my mind.
She is ever so graceful, play a small yet important part in the film - making Vicky realizing something quite important.
And she does that in every one of her movie roles - but now she does it big time!

筆者和佩蒂初次相遇,是伍迪艾倫的《情遇巴塞隆納》。
雖然我的焦點放在西班牙小倆口,佩蒂不知不覺打動我的心。
她是如此優雅,在電影中飾演一個小卻不可或缺的角色 - 讓維琪一夜長大、領略婚姻的殘酷。
而她每一次的電影演出都是如此盡責且熠熠生輝 - 現在是佩蒂絕地反攻的時候啦!


In 1998 classic
High Art - her character Greta pay tribute to Nico from Velvet Underground,
and the argument & love scene with Lucy (Ally Sheedy) are deadly heartbreaking.
From then on she took some great roles in Green Mile, Welcome to Collinwood & Far from Heaven
.
But it wasn't until 2003 patti strike with full force:
She performed in All the Real Girls , Pieces of April, The Station Agent and Lars Von Tier's Dogville.
Pieces of April gave her her first Oscar nods, The Station Agent made her queen of indie, 
and who can forget that mean woman shattered Nicole Kidman's China Dolls?

在1998的《高檔貨》 - 她飾演的德國人Greta不僅暗渡《地下絲絨》的妮可意符,
與愛人Lucy的床戲及爭吵戲碼更是絕望的令人心碎。

從那時開始她演出了一些不錯的角色:《綠色奇蹟》裡重病在床的老婆、喬治克隆尼之《各顯神通》及
Todd Haynes之《遠離天堂》。
但2003年佩蒂才真正火力全開、魅力四射:
《最愛你》、清純阿湯嫂之《非關女孩》、《下一站,幸福》及史上最強拉斯之《厄夜變奏曲》。
《非》讓她獲得小金人提名,《下一站》讓她獨步於各大影展。
另外有誰忘的了打碎妮可基嫚瓷娃娃的嚴厲女人?

Patti glows in
The Station Agent.

After 2003, it is stairway to heaven.

Her guest appearance in the last season of Six Feet Under won herself an Emmy.
You can tell her image changes slightly from then on:
reunite with Clooney in Good Night, and Good Luck - HOT: the situation is a little dangerous but fun, 
Patti is the wife
Robert Downey Jr. should hide. The ring thing is so sexy.
Blind Date with
Stanley Tucci - Lucky Stanley pretend to be blind and touched Patti all over, 
"You seems to have nice breats, when did you get them?" "When I started my period, I got ice cream and tits."
a film I am dying to see. Patti is the hot doc in Lars and the Real Girl, outshine
Rachel McAdams in Married Life.
She took her clothes off in Elegy, and prepare to have threesome in Woody Allen's Whatever Works.

過了2003年,一切都順遂地易如反掌。
客串演出HBO優質影集《六呎風雲》,拿下艾美獎。
你可以察覺佩蒂的形象慢慢在轉變,和《狗村》嚴厲女老師判若兩人:
再度與克隆尼攜手《晚安,祝你好運》,飾演鋼鐵人小勞勃道尼嬌妻,因情勢所逼得偷偷摸摸裝沒有結婚。
我最喜歡早晨兩人換裝上班那場戲,老婆提醒老公上班前把戒指拿掉,白色恐怖的甜蜜。
《盲目約會》裡史丹利吐西占盡便宜,裝盲人紮紮實實地把佩蒂從頭摸到尾。
「你看似乳房形狀美好,怎麼來的?」「初潮來時,我得到了冰淇淋及雙乳。」天阿我好想看!
《充氣娃娃之戀》的性感醫生、《第四者》鋒頭超過小瑞秋。
然後佩蒂在菲利普羅斯(Philip Roth)作品改編的《禁慾》裡脫光光,還準備在伍迪艾倫新片大玩3P!

Smokin' Hot in Elegy.

[以上為筆者的花痴英文習作]

[訪問正式開始]

The A.V. Club: Was High Art a big turning point for you? 
《高檔貨》是你演藝生涯的轉淚點嗎?

Patricia Clarkson: That was the turning point for me. Are you kidding? 
It completely changed everything for me in such a beautiful way, in a dream way. 
It was more than I could have asked for in an odd way, and so unexpected. 
I owe Lisa Cholodenko everything for casting me in that part, which I never thought she would. 
I almost didn’t go in. But anyway, things dramatically changed after that. 
該玩笑!它對我意義重大,夢幻又美好,徹底改變了我的命運。這部片超乎我的預期,有點邪門。 
我對導演Lisa Cholodenko充滿感激,我本來以為她不會讓我參予試鏡的。
我差一點點就近無法得到這個角色。無論如何,《高檔貨》之後,撥雲見日。

AVC: I wouldn’t push the comparison too far, 
but there’s a little bit of a similarity between that role and your role in Whatever Works. 
我不想走火入魔,但是《高檔貨》裡的好德國人和你《總之得就得》裡的角色有點像哩!

PC: Oh, definitely. [Laughs.] Crazy lady? Yeah. We were out there. They’ve been through struggles. 
They’re people who have humor, we hope, and desperation. Which can sometimes be a lethal cocktail. 
But I think, yeah, absolutely. Marietta and Greta are kissing cousins.
你說瘋狂女人嗎?當然阿![呵呵] 沒錯我們坦蕩蕩,儘管歷經艱辛。
但她們是那種幽默、懷抱希望及絕望的女人,所以有時宛若致命小妖精!
嗯我想她們有所雷同,瑪瑞愛塔和好德國人是親親好姐妹!

AVC: Before High Art came out, I knew you mainly from Murder One.
佩蒂! 我是因為《謀殺一號》愛上妳的! (*準備收藏)
PC: Great show.
優質節目。

AVC: You played it very well, but it was basically a suffering wife.
演技一流!但基本上那是個深宮怨婦角色。

PC: That chopped vegetables. I chopped more vegetables in a season of television. 
But I loved being a part of such a beautifully crafted show, and they were great actors. 
I was proud to be part of the show. But yes, it was that, and a hint of the trophy wife too, which was odd for me to play. 
It had such a following, that show. People loved it. I mean they really loved it, and they still talk about it. 
People still come up to me after moments and be like, “Oh that show. Murder One. Wow.”
雕蟲小技。本娘娘幾乎整季都在切菜。但我榮幸參予此劇,成為《謀殺一號》的一員;劇組演員都超優。
但我瞭,飾演模範媽媽不是佩蒂的風格。這部影集大受好評,一堆死忠粉絲,熱潮持續至今。
現在還是有人會跑過來大驚小怪:「你就是那個深宮怨婦!哇嗚~」

Far From Heaven, 是深宮怨婦 Julianne Moore的好朋友

AVC: Was there a point where you worried that as an actress you might end up, 
so to speak, chopping vegetables for a living?
演員生涯中你會不會突然擔心:靠,難道我要洗手作羹湯度日嗎?

PC: I thought I was going to have to be a grocer, a farmer. 
I did these films in my 20s, and I was always doing theater, but then I kind of hit this wall in my 30s. 
Then I got Murder One and it was really lovely, and I think, even though I was chopping vegetables, people seemed to really like me on the show.
我還以為自己會淪落為雜貨店老板娘或農婦咧。佩蒂二十年華演過很多電影、持續關注劇場表演,但三十幾歲時遇到瓶頸。
還好得到了《謀殺一號》的角色,老天保佑。我當時想:反正就算整天洗手作羹湯,還是有人很哈我。

AVC: They lit you well.
燈光柔和,佩蒂容光煥發。

PC: It’s all about lighting. Then I did this little film called Pharaoh’s Army that a handful of people saw. It was my first independent film I did. 
It’s a very beautiful little film, just this very tiny little war film that a man named Robby Henson wrote and directed and he shot it in McDaniels, Kentucky. 
And then right after, I was doing Three Days Of Rain out in L.A., and hen High Art came, and boom. Then I did Green Mile
I think that was the last audition of my life. I know some actors are like, [fondly] “Oh, auditions,” and I’m like, “Oh, suck it.” Who wants an audition?
 I’m so thrilled that I never have to audition ever in my life again. [Laughs.]
燈光是演員的好朋友。之後我拍了一部小電影《法老的軍隊》,看過的人屈指可數;但那是佩蒂第一部音地!
那是一部美好小巧的戰爭片,羅比漢森自編自導,於麥丹尼斯‧肯踏奇拍攝。然後我在洛杉磯演出劇場《三天暴雨》,之後《高檔貨》,轟!《綠色奇蹟》,佩蒂出運了!
我想《綠色奇蹟》是本人人生中的最後一次試鏡。我知道有很多人一聽到面試就直冒愛心:面試耶!可我覺得: 靠!真不爽! 佩蒂不需要面試好嗎!
萬歲!現在佩蒂不用面試,就可以演想要的角色。通體舒暢,心生愉快。[呵呵]
