Scorsese makes Joker movie - or The Death of Culture
« on: 23 August, 2017, 08:16:27 pm »

He's only producing, but - before you think that restores a shred of dignity - he's hired The Hangover guy to direct.

I'm not linking to the press release, but it's a classic. It's a full house for anyone playing DC Cinematic Universe bingo - "dark ... gritty and grounded ... set in the eighties ... more of a dark crime movie than a traditional superhero adventure".

I don't blame him for taking Time Warner's cash for putting his name on this  - he's 100 years old and hates the world for not going to see his Japanese priest torture porn movie.

This is the world we deserve, because it's the one we've made.

Odd response. Your one of those types I guess who has just discovered gifs?

Nah Goaty's been a gif-slinging machine since you still had to paint them with animal fat and charcoal on the sides of migrating mammoth.

I guess the crown prince of crime is going to be a wise guy. This attempt to recast the Joker as an organised crime figure does resonate with me since a lot of the animated Batman stories had this as the back story of the Joker, and you can see Warner Bros logic behind it. Our attempts to make Batman into a franchise have all fallen short of expectation and the best-considered version, Christopher Nolans 2008 Dark Knight had a genuinely compelling villain. Which Film Directors have made the most admired Movies about career crooks? Martin Scorsese has so we'll hire him to oversee our production about a psychotic Comic Book Villain in the hope this will make the audience feel our Joker is more realistic or credible. Whether Mr Scorsese gets a say in casting, editing or anything else, I doubt, but it does smack of desperation on Warner's part.
