属于所有人猿的星球

发自墨尔本——本月上线的两部电影——一部是科幻大片,另一部则是纪录片——都涉及到大猩猩这种与我们人类亲缘最近的灵长类动物,并用戏剧手段将某些不应被忽视的感悟和教训昭示在我们面前。

鲁伯特·怀亚特执导的这部《人猿星球的崛起》是根据皮埃尔·布尔1963年发表的小说《人猿星球》——讲述一个居住着高智商类人猿的世界——改编的第七部电影,并将其宣传为“电影史上第一部由有知觉的动物担任主角,并通过其角度来讲述的实景拍摄电影。”但名为实拍,却没有一只真的猩猩参与演出。

相反,最早为《阿凡达》所研发“动作捕捉技术”使一个像安迪·瑟金斯这样的人类演员不必再大费周章化妆成大猩猩,单凭做出动作和面部表情就可以扮演剧中的人猿“凯撒”,甚至连他眉毛的一丝抽动都能转换成人猿的相关动作。

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
