Taxi Driver and King Of Comedy are huge influences on this film, not just aesthetically but themes and subject matter. DeNiro is a host of a popular show that Joker wants to be on, much like DeNiro wanted to be on Jerry Lewis' show in King Of Comedy.
I don't understand this post.
ugh how did i not see that, i can't even tell what's real anymore lol. i guess what they say is true, stare into the clown long enough, and the clown stares backI don't understand this post.
A. My post was in jest.
B. Is it not also used in Hinduism?
C. Is Hinduism not older than Buddhism? In fact, Gautam Buddha is considered one of the avatar's of Vishnu in Hinduism.
D. My post was in jest.
E. If you want to be anal about it, Hinduism paragraph is longer than Buddhism paragraph in you link...
F. I should have also mentioned Jainism because why not?
G. I am slowly turning into joker, joker into turning slowly am I...
H. Actually, the symbol predates all of these religion, so...my conculsion is that society wins.
Fine, pick some stinkers in my opinion, so now my subjective way of discerning whether this film has a higher or lower chance at appealing to me is unsure of how to interpret this information.
What are you talking about desperate spin? I'm just saying that, personally, a lot of the choices for Golden Lion have been pretty bad. Looking at the list quickly the only films I've really loved that have won it are Still Life, A City of Sadness, Vagabond and Vive L'Amour. Hana-bi, Rashoman and Three Colors: Blue also stand out as good but not ones I've really loved.
They may just be "good" movies to you, but those ones you picked are loved by most critics.What are you talking about desperate spin?

I mean those are the good ones in the list. There's a lot of real stinkers that won the Golden Lion too (Shape Of Water, The Story of Qiu Ju and Lust, Caution come to mind at first looking at the list). Obviously this is all subjective, but a festival that historically is more likely to not match with my tastes vs one that is adds to my skepticism. That's all
This is in context to Taxi Driver, where the ending is often interpreted as a fantasy but which is both not well supported and weakens the satirical bite of the ending.
The scenes are extremely intense and shocking imo. I saw one this morning by accident, some ass posted it on Facebook without warning. I’d recommend not watching them if u are seeing the movie. One of the scenes is pretty much the ending
Videodrome would be another one. Its themes about media consumption and radicalization are disturbingly relevant and scarily prescient in the age of social media, 8Chan, Youtube algorithms, etcKing of Comedy is that rare kind of movie that's far more relevant nowadays than it was at it's release 35 years ago, it almost feels prescient. It's absolutely brilliant and deserves the recognition it didn't get at release, at the very least Joker will make more people aware of it.
