The writer wouldn't know, cuz remember ... "I won't see Joker. Not this weekend. Not ever."
It almost seems like going out of his way to support some lame reasoning for not wanting to see this film.
Curious what his definition of "cinema" or "art" is and why would someone who considers themselves a writer in the industry censor himself from ANY film?
Good grief. Do you folks have any clue what the first Media Composer cost? Your iPhone is more powerful, had two 9GB drives and literally took 5 minutes to render a 30 frame dissolve. You wanna play with the big boys? Invest in your career. Otherwise an iMac and FCP X will do the job you're clearly currently doing.
"Green Book" was a personal story that the kid of one of the two friends wanted to share. Dr. Shirley gave his blessings (and details about the trip) to Nick Vallelonga. You can say "well Don Shirley's family said it was a bunch of lies", and that is simply not true. Furthermore, this idea that because there are white and black characters on screen, there must be always be some bigger message about race is simply ridiculous. This is how these two specific people bonded. Period. Anything else is just a bunch of people bitching about a movie not satisfying their personal agendas. Otherwise, why should white people bother making movies with black characters in them? Seems like nothing is ever good enough. As Steven Spielberg said after making "The Color Purple", he shouldn't be telling African American stories, African Americans should be leading that charge. I suggest if you don't want "white savior" movies, then blacks should start making the movies they want to see and perhaps that a white audience might still be able to identify with??
"This powerful scene from Wonder Woman foreshadowed the year of reckoning with men’s bad behavior in Hollywood"
Nothing from"Three Billboards"?
Clearly, there is plenty of room for women and POC to find audiences for their stories, and they should be given the opportunity to do so. My question is, has Michael Moore ever put his $50 million net worth up and hired women or POC filmmakers himself? NO. Also, demeaning the folks who created the art form and then insulting everyone who is a "white male" director is absolutely not helping get them on your side. You don't want Michael Moore championing this.
