Until the much-trailed scene where Phoenix dances down, and prances on, the steps*, Todd Phillips and Lawrence Sher (DoP) largely starved our eyes of visuals, let alone anything cinematic— THE AGENT APSLEY #ScrapUniversalCredit #JC4PM2019 (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) January 3, 2020
* Heavy groan, when first presented with these steps as some gross symbol of upward battle pic.twitter.com/4ct8IPhAHt
Only 'a little' - not enough to make it :— THE AGENT APSLEY #ScrapUniversalCredit #JC4PM2019 (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) November 25, 2019
* Feel like the best role by Joaquin Phoenix - which isn't even You Were Never Really Here (2017), Lynne Ramsay's film (on which this 'leans')
* Resemble a worthy successor to Roma (2018)
* Any more than Psycho (1960)'s insights
Or The Master ?— THE AGENT APSLEY #ScrapUniversalCredit #JC4PM2019 (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) February 19, 2020
Or Peter Lorre (as Hans Beckert) ?
The time is 11.10 - at the start / at Ha Has
Time on Murray Franklin show is c. 10.40
Don't look - just go, almost certainly a quotation from (or reference to) many a film (in a film that deliberately invokes Travis Bickle (Taxi Driver (1976)) and Norman Bates (Psycho (1960)) - yet does so with unimaginative cinemtography (deliberately)
There's something special about you ~ Murray Franklin to Arthur Fleck
P. Fleck (box 37 ?)
Penny / Arthur Fleck
Laboured and unsubtle as the solo** cello-line
** Doubling / electronics ?
A film with his name all over it (co-writer and producer as well as director), it is not as if @thetoddphillips repays even interest on the debt to Ramsay (and nor does Joaquin Phoenix ?) in @jokermovie, which hardly matches the psychological insight of Hitchcock's Marnie (1964). https://t.co/22yQr2IIGt— THE AGENT APSLEY #ScrapUniversalCredit #JC4PM2019 (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) November 26, 2019
Lynne Ramsay - You were Never Really Here (2017) - be angry at JP for taking all her best ideas and doing them over for Todd Phillips ?
