02.29.20Internet So... I didn't really want to like this movie. I felt like Todd Phillips wanted to re-make Taxi Driver / King of Comedy so to get funding he threw a comic book villain in there. And while that may hold true for many aspects of the film, I must admit there's more depth here. I think mostly through Joaquin Phoenix's performance I found myself begrudgingly enjoying it for the most part. That laugh-crying... I have no idea how he does that. There's a lot of nuance in his portrayal... the typical descent into madness mixed with fantasy and grace and metamorphosis into super villain. Or not. The ambiguous ending is a nice touch. Plus I like pretty much the entire supporting cast so... yeah I liked it. Damn it.
