Anyone else excited for this movie? It’s gotten excellent reviews so far from that film festival.
Looks like it's going to be really good. Early articles I've read about Phoenix said he's terrific.
I thought this was a thread about a HOF poster.
LOL, so did I. I just changed the thread title to hopefully clear that up
Nice read about it 2 days ago in the NY Times:
Joaquin Phoenix, the Wild Card of ‘Joker’
I'm definitely going to see this
Phoenix is an excellent actor. His body of work speaks for itself. Definitely one of my favorites, but I also see Michael Shannon in the same vein, taking on those dark, brooding type of roles and just turning them into magic.
I would gladly watch a 90 minute movie where he just rambles incoherently about how badly the Jets suck and what a crook Goodell is.
It looks really dark, twisted, and sadistic. They dumped the comic stuff and went reality. Maybe all too real. I think it will be thrilling to see.
Pretty good insight on the film from the Huffington Post. Forgetting the commentary, the context of the film is interesting and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing it:
'Joker' Sends In The Clown But Doesn’t Know What To Say About Him
Looking forward to it as well. This should be a good alternative to the Disney-fied Marvel movies. Disney does the grand spectacle well but many of their movies for me are a bit formulaic and more attention is given to spectacle over plot and character development. Fun to watch and eat popcorn to but doesn't leave much of an impression. Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight and Batman Begins are the gold standard comic book movies for me and this one looks more in that vein.
