This Year In Film / Re: You Were Never Really Here

Perhaps Iím just overly familiar with the various incarnations of the material, but this felt way too thin to me. The story was chopped to shit, and too many scenes try to skate by on atmosphere alone and there just isnít enough there. Joaquin is good as always but heís been far better in far better films. This character just isnít especially compelling or memorable. Some nice visuals, etc, but nothing extraordinary. Perhaps my feelings will change, but Iím pretty disappointed. Just bounced right off me.

Think I can see where you're coming from even though I liked it a lot. There's clearly a more plot-focussed iteration in the mix and at a few points I thought the movie was gonna snap into a different mode but it really sticks to its guns. Atmosphere alone is right. Pure cinema, all that. Applied to subject matter that seldom gets this treatment. Rather than tell you a story about this guy doing these things, it locks you in the guy's fucked up head and just sort of keeps you there for a while. Things happen but they're secondary to being there with him.

Iím with Samsong, this movie is FUCKING DUMB. Yet all this praise... Audience loved it too. Once again I find myself on the outside, scratching my head.

Whoa, deja vu...

Why do we even bother with these awards on years with PTA films? You all forget how we all even got here?

Good one. I had the feeling I asked that question before. Same result!

Joaquin Phoenix talking about PTA in a recent long form interview with Collider
http://collider.com/joaquin-phoenix-interview-paul-thomas-anderson-the-joker/#christopher-nolan

I know Iím almost out of time with you, so I have to ask you, Iím a huge fan, like everyone, of your collaborations with Paul [Thomas Anderson]. Iím just curious, what has it been like for you working with him? Do you foresee yourself working with him again in the future?

PHOENIX: Heís like someone that came, brought me this movie at this time in my career that it just couldnít have been more perfect timing for me. I feel like I learned, so much of the experience taught me so much, and also working with Phillip [Seymour Hoffman], thereís just something so magical about that film to me, the experience of making that movie. I feel strongly about Paul. I have so much love and respect for him as a man and as a creative person. I feel like I donít know, itís just one of those moments where I wonder what kind of actor Iíd be without that experience, without having worked with him. I hope that weíll work together again. I donít know. If I turn around in 20 years and I say I got to work with Paul twice, thatís Ö You know what I mean?

Totally.

PHOENIX: Fucking great. Yeah, of course, Iím fucking greedy. I would like to do it more, but if thatís all I got, I feel very fortunate to have had that experience.

That was an amazing sync. I could easily imagine the actors singing along.
