‘Joker‘ is the movie of the moment, and never ceases to give that talk. Before the premiere came to light a few striking statements director, Todd Phillips, claiming that it had made the film because, according to him, it’s impossible to make comedy today. We talked to the director of the ‘Road Trip‘ or the trilogy of ‘The hangover‘ (‘The Hangover’).
we can Still make you laugh… without hurting others
Many have answered but called the attention who has also made an actor that appears in the same ‘Joker’, Marc Maron (‘Glow’), which gives life to the producer of the show that leads Murray Franklin (Robert de Niro). Maron, who in addition to performer is a comedian, do not agree with the opinion of Phillips and believe that the problem are those who enjoy hurting others with their jokes. Their words:
“There are a lot of people that is fun right now. Not only fun but fucking fun of truth. There are still lines to cross. If you like to cross a line, you can still do it. If you want to jugártela, you still can. Really, the only thing that is off the table, culturally, at this juncture –or even at all– is to hit shamelessly by the pure pleasure of hurting people. For the pure excitement and the laughs that they get some people to do harm, by bother, by making people feel excluded.
As I have said other times, there is no excuse. If you’re too intimidated to try to make comedy that is profound or provocative or even a bit controversial, without hurting people, then you are not good at what you do. Or maybe you’re just insensitive. In summary, no one is telling you not to say or do things. Only that it’s going to be received a certain way by certain people and you’re going to have to carry that. And if you are isolated or marginalized or pushed to a corner by your point of view or what you have to say, you still have a group of people who like it, well, there it is! These are your people. Enjoy your people.”
What do you think of the response of Marc Maron? ‘Joker’ is in cinemas from October 4, devastating at the box office in all the world.
