『映画をめぐる冒険』

Murakamieiga

去年の暮れ以来、映画熱は続いていて、今では今年見た映画の数の方が、今年読んだ本の数よりも多くなってしまった。もちろん大半は家で見ているわけで、今年映画館で見たのはたったの2本。とはいえ一年で2本というのは、オカダとしては多い方なのだけど。

そんなおり、村上春樹・川本三郎『映画をめぐる冒険』講談社 という本を手に入れた。この本は、1985年12月24日に初版が発行されたもので、あまり売れなかったからか、第2版くらいまでしか出ずに絶版になってしまったようで、村上さんの本の中では入手しにくい本になっている。オカダも前々から欲しくて、インターネットで探せるようになってから買う機会は何度かあったのだけど、かなりな値段が付いていたので、入手できずにいた。それが、割と安い金額で手に入れることができたのは、映画にはまっている今だからこそ縁があったのだろうか。

この本は、映画好きの村上さんが、映画評論家の川本三郎さんに頼み込こんで、一緒に作った映画のビデオのカタログ。全部で264本、原則としてアメリカ映画でなおかつ名作でないものが取り上げられていて、村上さんが6割、川本さんが4割くらいの割合で選んだ映画についてコメントを書いている。そして、年代別に分けられていて、1番古いのは1926年の『メトロポリス』、一番新しいのは84年の『グレイストーク/ターザンの伝説』。『遙か暗闇を離れて』というタイトルのまえがきを村上さんが、『ビデオとの遭遇』というあとがきを川本さんが書いている。

その当時にビデオ化されている作品という制約があったにせよ、作品の選択、そしてそれに対するコメントは、いかにも村上さんらしい語り口で楽しめた。非常に内容の濃い、充実した内容の本に仕上がっていた。例によって見てみたい映画に付箋をつけていったら、相当な数になってしまった。特に60年代、70年代のものに多く興味を惹かれた。

ちなみに、村上さんがコメントをつけた映画のリストは村上春樹マニアとして有名なpiccoliさんのサイトにある。http://www.diana.dti.ne.jp/~piccoli/haruki-eigawo.htm

まえがきも素晴らしくて、村上さんの映画体験は、日曜の朝、朝の食卓で父親が朝刊を読むところから始まったという。そして、映画を見るという行為の中に儀式性が徐々に失われていくのを嘆きながらもこう記す。

 好むと好まざるとにかかわらず、我々はそのような時代を生きているし、(中略)。我々は天候を選ぶことはできない。選ぶことができるのは傘とレインコートの柄だけだ。

村上さんの、映画に対する思いが満ちあふれた一冊。オカダの、『映画をめぐる冒険』をめぐる冒険は、こうしてやっとエンドマークを見ることができた。
