Less than 24 hours since it screened and I’m already exhausted by the discourse going on with this movie.

I wonder how far this movie will go to be dark. If it plays a bit to tame or safe, that's enough for me to not like the film

How was Zazie and De Niro's roles?
Both small (Zazie especially, de Niro actually decently sized ) but arguably crucial to his arc.

does it tho

i mean, todd philips

and frankly, the idea of joker as travis bickle is sorta innately uninteresting to me. i hope come october ill love it, but i'm still pretty skeptical about it all. i don't know what that point of view can add in general.

Todd Phillips' talent has been on full display from the beginning, and now everybody can see it.

Oh i was just looking to plug a countermeme

I mean i see why some dont buy it tho, i feel like this will be a TOL/Revenant type of deal where people will either keep seeing it as banale or profound/effective, sometimes both
