And it is a coincidence that the man who brought us that “deserved” thing is the director of The Hangover and Old School. (A bit on the sidelines, I like those two movies) But no, maybe it’s not too surprising that the director couldn’t succeed with this difficult task. Don’t get me wrong, I actually quite like Todd Phillps movies.
Joker is also a very good movie, even Joaquin Phoenix is also a talented actor and will definitely receive an Oscar nomination. And, yes, I watched Martin Scorsese movies, which inspired Phillps up to this point, such as casting Robert De Niro as Jerry Langford in The King of Comedy.
