THE FRENCH DISPATCH 法蘭西諸事週報
THE FRENCH DISPATCH

On the occasion of the death of its beloved Kansas-born editor Arthur Howitzer, Jr., the staff of The French Dispatch, a widely circulated American magazine based in the French city of Ennui-sur-Blasé, convenes to write his obituary. Memories of Howitzer flow into the creation of four stories: a travelogue of the seediest sections of the city itself from The Cycling Reporter; “The Concrete Masterpiece,” about a criminally insane painter, his guard and muse, and his ravenous dealers; “Revisions to a Manifesto,” a chronicle of love and death on the barricades at the height of student revolt; and “The Private Dining Room of the Police Commissioner,” a suspenseful tale of drugs, kidnapping and fine dining.

《法蘭西諸事週報》故事以權威雜誌《紐約客》作藍本,講述上個世紀於一個虛構的法國小鎮,標梅利飾演的美國傳媒人,創立的〈法蘭西諸事週刊〉將推出停刊前的最後一期,並選擇刊印三位撰稿人的文章,當中包括由蒂達史雲頓(Tilda Swinton)飾演的貝蕾森(J.K.L. Berensen)撰寫關於藝術家和其畫作引發的利益與紛爭文章《堅系傑作The Concrete Masterpiece》;法蘭絲麥杜文(Frances McDormand)飾演的記者桂文詩(Lucinda Krementz),則把添麥菲查洛美(Timothee Chalamet)這些學生與擁護革命的社運份子故事,寫成《重新發聲Revisions To A Manifesto》;而由謝菲韋特(Jeffrey Wright)所飾演食評家魯巴維則以亞洲廚師解構料理為主線,寫成《警察局長私房菜The Private Dining Room ── of the Police Commissioner》——三篇故事,交織成一封寫給文字工作者的華麗情書。
