has no one suggested Raging Bull, yet?
yeah TWIN PEAKS
this video may change your life. haha
1. i think this movie was a commentary on celebrity and how the media and public address it… we all laugh when we see a celebrity act weird because theyre on drugs. but i think the laughter would be replaced with an uncomfortable feeling when you realize the downward slope they got on to get to that point. which was my reaction when we got to the point of the dave letterman appearance scene. it was funny when it happened in real life and the audience was cracking up, but in the context of the movie, its really awkward and the crowd laughing is just so out of place.
2. the reason why it had to at least seem real up to the point of being released was that otherwise the public and media wouldnt address it at all. a lot of the movie deals with how joaquin is portrayed by tv and other people. those scenes wouldnt exist if everyone knew for certain it was a lie. they wouldnt cover it at all. the dave letterman appearance wouldn’t have been possible if dave and the audience knew it was a hoax.
3. some people weren’t in on it. some people were. diddy was in on it. no apologies necessary. he was acting in a movie.
4. this is by far NOT joaquin’s worst performance. its one of his best performances. no doubt.
