Digitales Film Club Review by Sally
Star
At first I didn’t have too may feelings about the film, it was enjoyable but nothing too spectacular. However, the more we discussed the it, the more I realized I liked it. Granted there is a lot happening. The film jumps back and forth, there are multiple supporting characters with intriguing but untouched stories, and there are several story lines running simultaneously for the main character. Despite all of this, there are so many wonderfully enjoyable scenes and the undercurrent of a subtle inspirational feeling. The focus on the eventual successes of John Callahan’s life were a nice touch at the end of the film. (Posted on 7/02/2019)

It’s not a memorable one. I enjoyed the movie in patches. It’s honest and very much realistic, but it didn’t leave an impact. The performances were greatly realistic especially from Joaquin Phoenix. However, the plot sometimes got a bit confusing as the timelines tangled together. Movie never delivered what audience really want to see in a biopic, there was no inspirational moment at any point. So in the end it was just an okay movie. (Posted on 7/02/2019)

Joaquin Phoenix was never the right choice for the lead role. He looked far too old to play the protagonist which made for a confusing timeline. And what on earth was Rooney Mara’s character? Truly bizarre. Aside from that, this was a fairly standard, enjoyable biopic. Hard to dislike but hard to get excited about. Not sure the story was interesting enough to warrant a film adaptation.

While this film certainly had bright and touching moments, the majority of it felt as though it sat just within the peripheral vision of what was possible with this story. I wanted them to delve deeper into Callahan’s cartoons and quirky sense of humor and further express what it was that made him a unique individual with an interesting story to tell. The film often felt scattered and I wanted to be presented with a much more cohesive story of triumph.
