A Study on Viewers' Viewing from the Angle of Desire—An Interpretation of Xiaofeng Li 's "Calm sea"

Abstract

As a visual feast, the sound and light images created by film viewing have different interpretation meanings for different levels of viewers.As the latest work directed by Li Xiaofeng, "calm sea" not only continues the framework of the previous crime film with the nature of the author's film, but also contains the spiritual core that the obsessive can only leave the scene, which is of far-reaching significance.In this film, the protagonist and the outsider are in the unity of opposites, leading their own viewing behavior and self-examination under the peep of desire, and stripping the cocoon of visual images to reveal the source of pleasure obtained by the viewers from the perspective of desire.
