“Joker” may have turned into a massive victory with multiple awards which included two Oscars, extraordinary box office winnings and basic praise from the general public and critics, but this does not mean that it was everybody’s favorite.
And seemingly Mamoru Oshii, the director known for his work in cult movies like”Ghost In The Shell” is one of those who were not so impressed by Todd Phillips’ cassette, expressing his preference for Heath Ledger’s work with the character.
“I favor [al] Joker in Dark Knight. This Joker is not smart and unlucky. My standard for assessing evil is intelligent or not,” he said recently in a meeting shared with otakujp.
“From intellect comes evil. Despair for humanity is a precondition. Fundamentally, this movie is not beautiful”.
“Hayao Miyazaki says he wishes to show a dream even in the film. I don’t think so, but I don’t wish to describe dirty things as they are.
I dare to state that cruel, they should show us an impressive and beautiful universe even for an instant. “reasoned the filmmaker.
