didn’t expect to like this movie, and i’m not sure i do, but Joaquin Phoenix was mesmerizing
this was like a dream where i wanted to sleep forever but i had to wake up and go home. i know its not a mainstream movie but why haven’t i heard anything about it? Willem Dafoe is brilliant and does everybody know that it also has Rupert Friend, Mads Mikkelsen and Oscar Isaac?!
can’t believe this is 40 years old! its one of my all time faves and i wanted to revisit after watching Fosse/Verdon on FX (and yes Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams are killing it). it was criticized as being self-indulgent when it came out but i find it and Fosse’s life fascinating. i’m now off to look for his biography
