(形容詞) (電影) 讓男性觀眾感動得落淚的。亦寫成 guy cry。
Shawshank falls under the rubric of “guy cry” movies. Though Deakins’s nuanced cinematography is lost on the small screen, watching Shawshank on TV allows a man to shed a few cathartic tears…while ensconced on his Barcalounger in the privacy of his home.
—Margaret Heidenry, “The Little-Known Story of How The Shawshank Redemption Became One of the Most Beloved Films of All Time,” Vanity Fair, September 22, 2014
I’m left with a personal dilemma at times when it comes to ‘guy-cry’ films like this, where you know what’s going to happen, you may get emotional about it, whatever. But if the film doesn’t deliver on those promises, I sometimes wonder if I’ve finally donated what’s left of my soul to the great and growing ocean of cynicism that comes with film criticism.
