New Podcast: Motion Pictures – ‘Anti-Hero Ethics (Joker)’

An all new podcast about cinema I’ve just launched with my friend and podcast buddy, Carl Sweeney.

Motion Pictures is designed to be more of an informal, free-flowing chat about movies, geared around a topic of the week. There will also be choice episodes around an idea, whatever takes our fancy really! It’s an exciting project.

In this third episode, Carl and I discuss Todd Phillips’ controversial Joker as part of a broader topic regarding the ethics of Anti-Heroes in cinema, via films such as Taxi Driver or The King of Comedy or Fight Club, and whether they are irresponsible in their approach. We also wade into the Martin Scorsese ‘Marvel films are not cinema’ fracas…

You can listen to the episode on Spreaker, Apple Podcasts and your podcast player of choice, or via Spotify below.
