Joaquin Phoenix’s original take on Joker prais…

Joaquin Phoenix’s original take on Joker praised as ‘masterful and disturbing’ in first reviews of the film:

The Todd Phillip-directed movie, based on the DC Comics character of the same name, premiered at the Venice Film Festival on 31 August and the first reactions have been very positive, with critics hailing it as ‘dark’ and ‘f*****g cool’.

Film lovers, critics and journalists in attendance at the premiere have since taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the movie. ‘I can’t quite believe how good Joker is. It’s a masterpiece,’ one review said. ‘Funny, dark, beautiful, full of rage, and really f*****g cool. Joaquin Phoenix is masterful and every shot is sublime.’

While one critic goes on to call the film ‘gnarly’ and ‘audacious’ as ‘it doesn’t hold back’, the other singles out Joaquin’s performance as ‘roaring’ and ‘monstrous’. ‘#JokerMovie is an efficacious and disturbing film that’s equally meritorious and tragic. Phoenix’s roaring, monstrous performance as the Clown of Crime is so immaculate, so maestoso, it’s a prodigious accomplishment, and marks the apex of his already superlative career.’

The film’s artistic director, Cameron Bailey, also previously revealed that the film was a ‘really original take on comic book movies’. Speaking to the Toronto Sun, he said: ‘It’s terrific. So it should play on our largest stage. But it’s a really original take on comic book movies and on the Joker character in particular.

Director Andy Muschietti Describes ‘The Flash’ as a “Beautiful Human Story”:

justiceleague:

The success of the two “IT” movies has now offered director Andy Muschietti options as to what he works on next, and the filmmaker has now confirmed to Fandango that he will direct a DC movie based on the Flash, starring Ezra Miller, who will reprise his version of the character as seen in 2017’s Justice League

Not much is known about Muschietti’s Flash movie at this moment in time except that Ezra Miller is set to return to the role. During a recent interview for IT Chapter Two, Fandango correspondent Nikki Novak asked Muschietti if Flash would be his next project: “Yup,” he replied with a smile.

When we followed up to ask if his Flash movie would contain horror elements similar to the IT movies, Muschietti seemingly shot that down. “An element if horror? I don’t think so. What captivated me about the Flash is the human drama in it,” he said.  “The human feelings and emotions that play in the drama [of it]. It’s going to be fun, too. I can’t promise that there will be any horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story.”
