Heather Dearman, a cousin of the Aurora, Colorado shooting victims, said that some of the victims and the families of the military will be affected by the new ‘Joker’ film.
Joaquin Phoenix is very proud of his work in “Joker” to hit theaters on Thursday, he said that in his best scene, actually hit the cutting room floor.
“For the first time in probably 25 years, I saw the newspapers. So, [director Todd Phillips] and I were talking about, which is what we thought it worked. However, my favorite scene, and what each of us thought that was my best scene, as of a given record, that scene was not in the movie,” the Phoenix, 44, told The Associated Press.
“It’s a cliché to say it, but it’s a game. So, you can take this scene and it also influences the next stage. Thus, a contact that may be great, and will no longer work. It is best to take it to the end of his tirade at Murray Franklin’s [Robert Deniro’s talk show host character] isn’t going to work. It was a really, really good, but on it’s own, but cut it at all, it just doesn’t work. An earlier take, which I do not think that it is very good, it worked out for the best.”
‘JOKER’ STARS JOAQUIN PHOENIX, WALK THE INTERVIEW
Phoenix said as he and Phillips did a lot of experimenting with the different perceptions and interpretations of the infamous Batman villain, the action, which he believes has made him a stronger actor in the general sense.
“There seemed to be an endless number of ways to interpret each and every moment in time, or how he will behave in any given moment. And there is nothing that doesn’t make sense,” he said. “So we would do the scenes in so many different ways, and some would make me cry, and others I’d joke around and others I would be angry with him, and it would be the same scene, and they’re all f— – – king, it made sense, and that it is so hard to find. There is something very exciting about it, because it keeps you in this state of being as a never-ending study, and try to find something new.”

“I think that He and I were always trying to get you to try and surprise each other with an idea,” he added. “There was never a moment where I felt completely relaxed. I’m always on the lookout for something a little different. There is something very exciting about it. It’s so much fun to act out in this way. Often times it is the opposite of that.”
Phillips, meanwhile, was irked by the criticism of the film, from the far left who slammed the film before they have even had a chance to see it.
“It’s a little disconcerting when people write think pieces of it without having seen it. And even in the way they think of the pieces of writing, ” I don’t need to see it to know what it is.” I think it’s amazing, to be honest, how easy it is for the left-hand side can be sound as well as by the far right when it suits their agenda,” Phillips said. “At that point in time, I’m disappointed.”

The prevention play, it is mind-boggling to Phillips, as he hopes to be on the “Joker” inspired conversations: About guns, about violence, and about the treatment of people with mental illness.
“ of the reason that the film is a comment on the comic-book world of the film,” Phillips said. “With all my heart,” Why is it celebrated? Why is this funny? Why is this bad? What are the practical consequences of the violence?'”

The film itself is a slow-burning character study of how a mentally ill, middle-aged man by the name of Arthur Fleck, is in the City. If the audience is falling, he has been working as a clown-for-hire, who lives with his mother in a run-down Gotham, apartment and check in from time to time with a social worker. He has a card he gives out to people that are spontaneous and painful bouts of laughter as a result of a medical condition. His only joy seems to be looking at talk show host, Michael Franklin, (played by Robert De Niro) in front of the house.

“The truth is, you look at it, and it is heart-breaking. He is a heart-breaking,” Phillips said. “And do you know what is going on in the movies, when you’re in a world with a lack of empathy, and the love is missing? Are you getting the villain that you deserve it.”
It is a role that is often necessary for the actors to move in tight spaces, and it is this “Joker” has the added complication that it is more realistic than most of the other shows even though it’s still set in a fictional world. In order to play Arthur and the Joker, Phoenix, explored a few of the people that he was reluctant to even mention the name.
