New Joker Movie Under Scrutiny From Overbearing Libs
Hollywood puts out actions movies all the time. In those movies there is violence and there has been for years. You can even look at older classics like “Charade,” with Carey Grant, it is more of a suspense/thriller but there is some violence in it. But no one blamed movies and there was never a reason to. Now we have better CGI and production quality but that doesn’t mean they are any more culpable. But the MSM and some libs would have you think so, with the way they are going after the recently released Joker movie starring Joaquin Pheonix.
“Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated “Joker” standalone DC film starring Joaquin Phoenix has come under fire from critics who fear the film, which depicts a psychologically unstable lead character embracing violence, may glorify mass murder in an era increasingly plagued by mass shootings. Just a few weeks out from the film’s release, Phoenix reportedly walked out of an interview after being questioned about the film’s potential culpability in promoting violence, while a group of victims of the Aurora tragedy has sent a letter to the studio calling on the studio to promote gun control and donate money to aid gun violence victims.”
The studio put out an earlier interview where he already answered that question.
“Well, I think that, for most of us, you’re able to tell the difference between right and wrong. And those that aren’t, are capable of interpreting anything in the way that they may want to. People misinterpret lyrics from songs. They misinterpret passages from books. So I don’t think it’s the responsibility of a filmmaker to teach the audience morality or the difference between right or wrong. I mean, to me, I think that that’s obvious.”
Phoenix then expanded on the idea of what could “fuel” someone towards an act of violence. “I think if you have somebody that has that level of emotional disturbance, they can find fuel anywhere. I just don’t think that you can function that way,” he said.”
Full disclosure I have not seen the movie, but I don’t feel I need to, as movies are not how-to guides but for entertainment purposes only. So what are liberal expecting studios to pay gun control groups every time they produce a movie with a gun in? This is absurd.
