a couple of weeks Ago, this legend of the film medium that is Martin Scorsese did you upload it to the pan after attack with hardness of the productions of Marvel Studios, as “amusement parks” and sentenced with firmness that “are not theater”. A few words that, as we told you, disappointed deeply, James Gunn.
well, the best of Marty is not alone in his crusade against anti-superheróica, having joined the cause, another member of the old guard film. This is not another Francis Ford Coppola, author of gems from the likes of ‘The godfather’ or ‘Apocalypse Now’, who has been much more severe than Scorsese, using adjectives such as “negligible”.
“When Martin Scorsese says that the Marvel movies are not cinema, is right because we hope to learn something from the film, we hope to enrich us, some enlightenment, some knowledge, some inspiration… I don’t know if someone gets something out of seeing the same movie over and over again. Martin was kind when he said that it is not cinema. Not saying that it was despicable, which I say it is.”
Is more or less aligned with the opinions of these two filmmakers —I’m defending to the hilt the great pair ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame’—I recognize that there is a key point in the statements of Coppola’s that I have seen impossible not to give the reason, and that is in which he speaks of “see the same movie again and again”; one of the endemic evils of the industry, hollywood-current, that prefabrica blockbusters, have superheroes or not, to the beat of a template and formulas calculated to the millimeter.
James Gunn returns to answer (with much success)
as happened after the statements of Scorsese, James Gunn, director of both installments of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and the future ‘The Suicide Squad’, has not lost the opportunity to respond to Coppola through his account of instagram with the publication that you can read below.
“Many of our grandparents thought that all the movies of gangsters are the same thing, calling them sometimes”despicable”. Some of our great-grandparents thought the same of the westerns, and they believed that the films of John Ford, Sam Peckinpah and Sergio Leone were exactly the same. I remember a great-uncle that spoke wonders of ‘Star Wars’. He responded by saying, ‘Because I saw that when it was called ‘2001’ and, boy, what a boredom!’. Superheroes are just the gangsters/cowboys/adventurers in outer space today. Some of the films of superheroes are horrible, some are beautiful. As the westerns and the films of gangsters (and before that, only the MOVIES), not everyone is capable of appreciating them, even some geniuses. And that’s fine.”
In pursuit of peace and calm, and after wanting to give a hug to James Gunn for showing such restraint, consistency and heat in your reply, I will leave you with a perfect answer to this controversy, and to any other you could think of, courtesy of Harry Callaghan.
