Thanos apoya a la competencia: Josh Brolin defiende 'Joker' contra las críticas

Xose Aldámiz Lunes 07 octubre 2019

Antes de su estreno 'Joker' ya ha despertado críticas debido a su violencia. Tanto Joaquin Phoenix como Todd Phillips han defendido su película en los diferentes medios. Ahora un compañero "supervillano" se posiciona en favor de 'Joker'. Se trata del actor Josh Brolin, actor que interpretó a Thanos en 'Vengadores: Infinity War' y 'Vengadores: Endgame'.

To appreciate "Joker" I believe you have to have either gone through something traumatic in your lifetime (and I believe most of us have) or understand somewhere in your psyche what true compassion is (which usually comes from having gone through something traumatic, unfortunately). An example of dangerous compassion would be to, say, make a film made about the fragility of the human psyche, and make it so raw, so brutal, so balletic that by the time you leave the theatre you not only don't want to hurt anything but you desperately want an answer and a solution to the violence and mental health issues that have spun out of control around us. This film makes you hurt and only in pain do we ever want to change. It's all in the irony of trauma ? a fine line between the resentment of wanting to hurt society back for raping you of a decent life, for not protecting you, and accepting what feels like alien feelings with softening to those others who seem freakish in our era of judgment, and digital damnation. Like kids in Middle School: man, they can just be mean. For no reason. And, sometimes, those awful little clicky kids breed an evil in someone that rages much later, when everyone pretends we are all back to normal, when we all thought it had just manned up and gone away. We have a habit of hating and ostracizing and dividing and sweeping our problems under the rug. Joker, is simply lifting the rug and looking underneath it. Nothing more. Nothing less. It's there.

El actor publicó en su cuenta de Instagram una foto de 'Joker' acompañándola del siguiente texto: "Para apreciar 'Joker' creo que tienes que haber pasado por algo traumático en tu vida (y creo que la mayoría lo hemos hecho) o entender en algún lugar de tu psique lo que realmente es la compasión (la cual surge cuando se ha pasado por algo traumático, desgraciadamente)". El actor también defendió su dureza como un medio de reflexión para aquellos que vean la película: "Esta película te hace daño y sólo en el dolor podemos cambiar".


En defensa de 'Joker'

Las declaraciones de Brolin se asemejan a lo expresado por Zazie Beetz, actriz co-protagonista de 'Joker', en una entrevista a Variety. "Creo que trata sobre la empatía hacia el aislamiento. Cómo es nuestro deber como sociedad darnos cuenta de la gente que se cae por los agujeros del camino". Esto se suma a las declaraciones hechas recientemente por Michael Moore en su cuenta de Instagram. En ella declara a 'Joker' una obra maestra y anima a la gente a verla como un reflejo de los problemas de la sociedad actual.

On Wednesday night I attended the New York Film Festival and witnessed a cinematic masterpiece, the film that last month won the top prize as the Best Film of the Venice International Film Festival. It's called "Joker" ? and all we Americans have heard about this movie is that we should fear it and stay away from it. We've been told it's violent and sick and morally corrupt. We've been told that police will be at every screening this weekend in case of "trouble." Our country is in deep despair, our constitution is in shreds, a rogue maniac from Queens has access to the nuclear codes ? but for some reason, it's a movie we should be afraid of. I would suggest the opposite: The greater danger to society may be if you DON'T go see this movie. Because the story it tells and the issues it raises are so profound, so necessary, that if you look away from the genius of this work of art, you will miss the gift of the mirror it is offering us. Yes, there's a disturbed clown in that mirror, but he's not alone ? we're standing right there beside him. "Joker" is no comic book movie. The film is set somewhere in 1970s Gotham/New York City, the headquarters of all evil: the rich who rule us, the banks and corporations whom we serve, the media which feeds us a daily diet "news" they think we should absorb. But this movie is not about Trump. It's about the America that gave us Trump ? the America which feels no need to help the outcast, the destitute. The America where the filthy rich just get richer and filthier. Thank you Joaquin Phoenix, Todd Phillips, Warner Bros. and all who made this important movie for this important time. I loved this film's multiple homages to Taxi Driver, Network, The French Connection, Dog Day Afternoon. How long has it been since we've seen a movie aspire to the level of Stanley Kubrick? Go see this film. Take your teens. Take your resolve.

Ya sea por la controversia o su calidad, la película se mantiene con una exitosa taquilla en su primer fin de semana.
