CHRIS MASSOGLIA   

Cache   
Christopher Paul "Chris" Massoglia[1] (born March 29, 1992) is an American television and motion picture actor.
Chris Massoglia was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Christopher and Karen Massoglia.[2] His father is a chiropractor and his mother a homemaker.[2] His parents are devout Christians and Republicans, and Massoglia grew up a fan of Christian pop music (as well as unable to listen to rap music).[2] Gifted with an above-average intelligence, Massoglia was homeschooled by his mother.[2] While his peers were taking third grade-level subjects, Massoglia was taking eighth grade-level courses.[2] By the age of 13, he had enrolled in an online university where his coursework included developmental psychology, Biblical studies, algebra, and American history.[2] He also had studied jujitsu, played piano, trained as a hip-hop dancer, knew American sign language, and rode horses.[2] He was also a stand-out Little League Baseball player.[2] The Massoglia family has, as of 2009, refused to move to Hollywood, preferring to maintain a home in Minneapolis despite the extensive travel for Chris that this requires.[3]

He began attending acting workshops at a dancing academy in his home town of Minneapolis while in middle school, and auditioning for television commercials by creating home-made audition tapes.[3] His first jobs included commercials for Target, Marshall Field's, PepsiCo, and Best Buy.[2]
He began acting in 2003 under the name "Chris Kelly" (sometimes appearing as "Chris J. Kelly") in an episode of the television program Law & Order: Criminal Intent.[3] The same year, he was considered for the part of 10-year-old Sean in the Nicole Kidman film Birth, but the family refused to allow him to appear naked on screen with a nude, grown woman.[2] He auditioned for Spider-Man 2 (getting far enough in the casting process to spend an afternoon with Tobey Maguire) and Bad News Bears (he returned six times for call-backs but was not cast).[2] He spent the summer of 2004 away from auditions to play Little League Baseball; his team (the Robbinsdale All-Stars) won the Minnesota state title that year but did not go to the Little League World Series after losing in the Indianapolis regionals.[2] He appeared in two episodes of Medical Investigation in 2004,[4] and four episodes of the TNT cable television police drama Wanted in 2005.[3][4] He began using his family name of Massoglia in 2008.[3]
He made his feature film acting debut in 2007 in the motion picture A Plumm Summer,[5] but his most prominent role as of 2009 was as "Darren Shan" in the 2009 film Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant.[6] Originally scheduled to debut in theaters in 2010, the film was moved to October 2009 to "capitalize on the Halloween season",[7] and opened a month prior to another highly-anticipated vampire picture, New Moon.[8]
His follow-up project was the 3-D horror film The Hole, directed by Joe Dante,[9][10][11] He also went on to playing an older Sam, Zac Efron's brother in Charlie St. Cloud, but his role was cut from the film.[11][12]

WOMEN QUOTES   

Cache   
Women are like tricks by sleight of hand,
Which, to admire, we should not understand.
WILLIAM CONGREVE, Love for Love
I have seen too much not to know that the impression of a woman may be more valuable than the conclusion of an analytical reasoner.
SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Man's love is of man's life a thing apart,
'Tis woman's whole existence.
LORD BYRON, Don Juan
It is the plain women who know about love; the beautiful women are too busy being fascinating.
KATHARINE HEPBURN, Evan Esar's 20,000 Quips & Quotes
The plainest man who pays attention to women, will sometimes succeed as well as the handsomest man who does not.
CHARLES CALEB COLTON, Lacon

The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is “What does a woman want?”
SIGMUND FREUD, Ernest Jones' Sigmund Freud: Life and Work

A woman cannot be herself in the society of the present day, which is an exclusively masculine society, with laws framed by men and with a judicial system that judges feminine conduct from a masculine point of view.
HENRIK IBSEN, From Ibsen's Workshop

"Woman" is my slave name; feminism will give me freedom to seek some other identity altogether.
ANN SNITOW, "A Gender Diary," Conflicts in Feminism


There is in every true woman's heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.
WASHINGTON IRVING, The Sketch Book
Men are allowed to have passion and commitment for their work ... a woman is allowed that feeling for a man, but not her work.
BARBRA STREISAND, People Magazine, May 31, 1993

Every woman should have four pets in her life. A mink in her closet, a jaguar in her garage, a tiger in her bed, and a jackass who pays for everything.
PARIS HILTON

If young women were not deceived into a belief that affectation pleases, they would scarcely trouble themselves to practise it so much.
MARIA EDGEWORTH, Mademoiselle Panache

Everything about woman is a riddle, and everything about woman has a single solution: that is, pregnancy.
FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, Thus Spake Zarathustra

For I cannot think that GOD Almighty ever made them [women] so delicate, so glorious creatures; and furnished them with such charms, so agreeable and so delightful to mankind; with souls capable of the same accomplishments with men: and all, to be only Stewards of our Houses, Cooks, and Slaves.
DANIEL DEFOE, The Education of Women

All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy.
OSCAR WILDE, The Importance of Being Earnest
A woman's whole life is a history of the affections.
WASHINGTON IRVING, The Sketch Book

Let men tremble to win the hand of woman, unless they win along with it the utmost passion of her heart.
NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE, The Scarlet Letter

When women are the advisers, the lords of creation don't take the advice till they have persuaded themselves that it is just what they intended to do. Then they act upon it, and, if it succeeds, they give the weaker vessel half the credit of it. If it fails, they generously give her the whole.
LOUISA MAY ALCOTT, Little Women

What happens is that, as with drugs, he needs a stronger shot each time, and women are just women. The consumption of one woman is the consumption of all. You can’t double the dose.
IAN FLEMING, John Pearson's The Life of Ian Fleming
Every world has faults
This one has too many
Unattainable Female Objects.
DAVID JONATHAN NEWMAN, "U.F.O.," The Light Looks Another Way
Don't wait for the good woman. She doesn't exist.
CHARLES BUKOWSKI, letter to Steve Richmond, Nov. 1971
Woman was God's second mistake.
FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, The Antichrist

I think women dwell quite a bit on the duress under which they work, on how hard it is just to do it at all. We are traditionally rather proud of ourselves for having slipped creative work in there between the domestic chores and obligations. I'm not sure we deserve such big A-pluses for all that.
TONI MORRISON, Newsweek, Mar. 30, 1981

You won't regret the men you never killed, but you will regret the women you passed up.
BERNARD CORNWELL, The Winter King

Lone women, like to empty houses, perish.
CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE, Hero and Leander

Birth control is the first important step woman must take toward the goal of her freedom. It is the first step she must take to be man’s equal. It is the first step they must both take toward human emancipation.
MARGARET SANGER, "Morality and Birth Control," Birth Control Review, Feb-Mar., 1918

Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags.
CHARLOTTE BRONTE, Jane Eyre

The happiest women, like the happiest nations, have no history.
GEORGE ELIOT, The Mill on the Floss


In revenge and in love woman is more barbaric than man is.
FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, Beyond Good and Evil
No matter what a woman looks like, if she's confident, she's sexy.
PARIS HILTON
I, Woman, am that wonder-breathing rose
That blossoms in the garden of the King.
ELSA BARKER, The Mystic Rose
I'm not denyin' the women are foolish: God Almighty made 'em to match the men.
GEORGE ELIOT, Adam Bede
I know little of women. But I've heard dread tales.
HAROLD PINTER, Moonlight
O woman, perfect woman! what distraction
Was meant to mankind when thou wast made a devil!
JOHN FLETCHER, Monsieur Thomas
In Hollywood, the women are all peaches. It makes one long for an apple occasionally.
W. SOMERSET MAUGHAM, Gene Shalit's Great Hollywood Wit


It is possible, reading standard histories, to forget half the population of the country. The explorers were men, the landholders and merchants men, the political leaders men, the military figures men. The very invisibility of women, the overlooking of women, is a sign of their submerged status.
HOWARD ZINN, A People's History of the United States
Of all things upon earth that bleed and grow,
A herb most bruised is woman.
EURIPIDES, Medea
The sexual life of adult women is a “dark continent” for psychology.
SIGMUND FREUD, The Question of Lay Analysis
Woman's mind
Oft' shifts her passions, like th'inconstant wind;
Sudden she rages, like the troubled main,
Now sinks the storm, and all is calm again.
JOHN GAY, Dione

Profiles in Podcast Power! LIGHT THE FUSE is A MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE to Beat for Fan Tributes, Fun, Interviews and Genuine Film School Level Insight!   

Cache   
Your Mission..Should you CHOOSE to Accept it.. ..is to Go I Tunes, Innit. Or Direct via Twitter. Find these guys. They are amazing! LIGHT THE FUSE PODCAST. Whilst I may have skipped a few eps and must confess to not being QUITE as big a ‘Mission’ fan as they..this show has dedication to the craft of podcasting, to film and building community. What’s particularly fascinating is that they have managed to not only secure some big name guests (Paul Hirsch, Brad Bird, Lorne Balfe, Christopher McQuarrie) but to keep those guys talking, at some depth and leisure , in an era of sound-bites and template promotional clips. You get to share in a mutual joy and learn in a truly substantial, philosophical sense about the trials, challenges, rewards and joys of film-making. I look forward to seeing some repeat visits / further big names on the show and yes, I suspect they will eventually get Tom Cruise, though he is quite a focused man, I suspect? I have rarely if ever seen him simply sit down and relax and talk movies beyond the brief of promoting each new release (a diplomatic art at which he excels). One nonetheless gets every sense that he would love to do so..you can just tell he’d feel that’s a luxury he cannot afford because he could be out planning and MAKING the things! Maybe McQuarrie could lure him to the cast as a double act between takes on the now readied for action Missions 7 and 8 (being shot back to back for a 2021/22 release). There is a mystery surrounding Tom. But Light the Fuse could infiltrate and probe and charm and ‘we got it’.. There are also interesting looks back at what might have been. The cast on Oliver Stone’s Mission:abort on the second movie is as entertaining as the ACTUAL second movie that John Woo ended up making! I can see why it did not end up getting made as the ending was pure sci-fi rather than merely ‘spy-fi!’. Equally, oh the lost treasures that were in both M:I-3 and Ghost Protocol! So, yes: Recommended! A great listen for commutes, work-outs, jogs /walks, bath time, washing up, woteva. Just a great listen, full stop, be you a Mission devotee , Tom Cruise disciple or just a film fan. Some questions I would like them to address?     When are we teaming up for a joint show? If the IMF is American then why so many ENGLISH operatives and adventures? They just cast Hayley Atwell for Missions 7 and 8. How DID Benji get to field agent status? Does he have a BIT of a crush on Ethan?   WILL we EVER get a definitive answer on how / why Phelps went from decent man to nasty bastard (and no, the movie’s explanation does not cut it: is it a different Phelps?!) Have they in fact made up their minds at Team Cruise /Paramount as to whether the movies are in fact in continuity with the TV shows or a totally different universe? Why so many bad apples in the IMF team down the years: plot device to make Ethan go rogue (and hence have an army after him?) or a genuine piece of plot in awaiting about the nature of Black Ops? Would Jack Reacher, Pete ‘Maverick’ Mitchell, Mitch McDeere make it in the IMF if Ethan took a day off?   Where is KITTRIDGE?! Will he ever come back? And is he in fact the best goodie buddy Ethan is waiting to have..or a truly nasty bastard or somewhere in between? Henry Czerny..we need you! What ARE the sexual politics of Mission movies? Are we meant to be seduced when Ilsa comes out of the pool / takes off shoes / wraps legs round you..(nb that’s not a complaint just a genuinely curious query). 😉 How did Ethan get past West Point, let alone into intel with THAT erratic a hairdo? WHAT IS THE RABBIT’S FOOT?! Where can we find one of the abandoned Mission:3 scripts?!   In the Mission:Impossible drinking game..do we take a shot of water every time Dougray Scott shouts HUNT like it’s a n other swear word? Who was offered the Cavill role in FALLOUT? McQ keeps teasing that as well as the ‘famous’ cameo that went to a stuntman instead. Was it Fassbender? Is Ethan now a fully fledged character and if so, do we adopt the bio that was given in the first film/ surely ripe for reference via visual nods in the forthcoming films..not a full prequel, just visual montage nod (Ethan learns his skills, acquires traits, gets recruited by a younger Jim Phelps?..think Spielberg’s into segment for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade)? LOVE your work. Happy to promote. And would welcome a collaboration sometime. Keep it up! The secretary can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the podcast.

It's not as simple as the media tries to portray it   

Cache   
Important article at CONSORTIUM NEWS by John Kiriakou.  Here's the opening:



The news is dominated by “the whistleblower,” the CIA officer who reported to the CIA Inspector General (IG) that President Donald Trump may have committed a crime during a conversation with the president of Ukraine.  I’ve been fascinated by the story for a couple of reasons. 
First, as a whistleblower and a former CIA officer, I know what must have been going through the guy’s mind as he was coming to the decision to make a report on the president of the United States.  That is, if he is a real whistleblower. 

If he’s a whistleblower, and not a CIA plant whose task it is to take down the president, then his career is probably over.  Intelligence agencies only pay lip service to whistleblowing. A potential whistleblower is supposed to go through the chain of command as the current whistleblower did.  If an employee has evidence of waste, fraud, abuse, illegality, or threats to the public health or public safety, he is supposed to go to the Inspector General.  The IG, then is supposed to go to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI).  And when the DNI investigates and finds the complaint credible, he then takes it to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.  That sounds straightforward, but it’s not. 


Check out the whole article.  Grasp that it's not necessarily as simple and straightforward as the media wants to portray it.

"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
Wednesday, October 2, 2019.  The corruption in the Biden family is a reflection on Joe and in Iraq the security forces attack the protesters.


Starting in the US with the race for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination and starting with the still fading 'front runner' Joe Biden.  War Hawk Joe is the choice of those who would do nothing.  The demands and the needs of people in 2019?  Ignore them, says Joe.  Medicare For All, they don't deserve it.  He's not going to a damn thing.  I would say "except speak a little better than Donald Trump" but Joe can't speak better as we all know.

He certainly can't 'restore ethics' to the White House.  Not with his family.  In recent weeks, a great deal has been rightly made about his niece Caroline Biden.  A few years after she got to walk on assaulting a police officer (if she were African-American, she'd probably been killed in response), Caroline stole over $100,000 by charging -- to a credit card that she had stolen -- purchases at a drug store.  Was the buying drugs?  That's the first question the press should be asking.  As Marcia noted last night, it's doubtful she racked up over $100,000 in charges on toothpaste and tampons.  The second question the press should be asking is what happened to the two men who found Joe's granddaughter's credit card?  When Naomi Biden lost her credit card, two men found it and used it for three purchases.  What sentence did they receive because they charged no where near $100,000.  At least one of those men were African-American.

Most importantly, the press should be asking about the charges.  Caroline was not charged as she should have been.  The press needs to ask why?  Were favors called in?  She was guilty as hell, that's reality.  If a plea deal was made on that case, that needs to be explained.  As it stands, in the state of New York, she should have additional charges the most pertinent being forgery.  There's no way she charged over $100,000 without signing a slip at some point -- a slip with someone else's name since she had stolen the card.  She should have been charged with identity fraud as well.

This was never an issue, for the prosecutors, of can we prove it in court?  The proof was all there, she would have been convicted in court -- and faced a real sentence.  So why did the prosecutors make a deal with her?

People are up in arms over Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, among others, buying their children's way into college.  (As disclosed years ago at THIRD, I know Lori.)  How is Caroline stealing over $100,000 not more appalling?  Don't say, "She's a kid."  No, she wasn't..  She was in her late 20s when that happened, she's over thirty now.

She was allowed to enter a guilty please to two charges.  Why was that allowed?  She'd already assaulted a police officer which, grasp this, is a violent crime.  Who called in favors to get Joe Biden's niece a sweetheart deal that let her admit to fewer charges than she should have been charged with and allowed her to serve no time at all after stealing over $100,000.

Theft and corruption is a pattern with the Biden family.  And, yes, it does reflect on Joe and it should.  Roger Clinton reflected on Bill Clinton, Billy Carter reflected on Jimmy Carter.  In what world do the actions of Caroline Biden, her father James Biden (Joe's brother) and Joe's son Hunter Biden not reflect on Joe?

And let's grasp too that Hunter turns fifty in a few months.  Fifty.  And he's currently got a woman suing him for paternity.  How's Joe going to reassure American families when the reality is that Hunter Biden's not providing for the child that's supposed to be his own?  Even staffers on Joe's campaign have told me it's obvious Hunter's the father of that child.

Family values?  Deadbeat Dad who won't step up to the plate and that's family values?  And Hunter's not a 20-year-old gas pump jockey.  By unethical means, he's earned millions.  And he won't pay child support.

Hunter is unethical and he is the poster boy for "as a Biden" -- remember Joe lying about an incident that didn't happen the way he said it did and swearing that it was true, giving his word "as a Biden."  Hunter's actions (and James and Caroline's actions) say a lot more about what happens "as a Biden."  Patrick Martin (WSWS) notes:

The younger Biden has always been the black sheep of the family, even according to various sympathetic accounts, most of them appearing in publications—The New Yorker, the New York Times, the Washington Post—favorable to the Democrats.
The New Yorker piece, at more than 10,000 words by far the longest, published in July, was obviously planted by the Biden campaign for the purpose of venting all the bad news about Hunter Biden as a preemptive measure against anticipated stink bombs from the Trump campaign.
It was prepared through lengthy interviews by reporter Adam Entous with Hunter Biden. And it delivers a lot of bad news about a career devoted apparently to influence-peddling and drug abuse, both on a scale that matches or exceeds that of any dubious relative of any previous president, at least until Donald Trump.
Hunter Biden was hired by MBNA bank in Delaware, fresh out of Yale Law School, and paid a six-figure salary at the age of 26 because his father was a senator from that state and a fervent defender of the bank and credit card industries. MBNA was then the largest US issuer of credit cards.
He then moved to Washington to take a position in the last years of the Clinton administration. Once the Republicans came to power with the George W. Bush administration, in 2001, he became a lobbyist, helping Jesuit Catholic colleges insert earmarks into congressional appropriations bills.
When earmarks became more difficult to obtain, and after losing money in a speculative venture on the eve of the 2007-2008 financial crash, Biden formed a “consulting” group with Christopher Heinz, stepson of Senator John Kerry and an heir to the Heinz fortune, and a Yale friend of Heinz’s, Devon Archer.
Inevitably, after his father’s election as vice president, given a prominent international role in the Obama-Biden administration, Hunter Biden’s consulting firm branched out into global deal-making, focusing on countries where influence-peddling would be most lucrative and actual business credentials least necessary, among others, China and Ukraine.
In China, the younger Biden traveled on Air Force Two in 2013 with his father, who was making an official trip to Beijing. In the course of this, Hunter Biden introduced a Chinese business partner, Jonathan Li, to the vice president. He left China with promises of future investments, although not with the $1.5 billion that Trump now falsely claims. According to Hunter Biden’s attorney, no money has yet flowed from that particular connection.
Another Chinese business prospect gave Hunter Biden a diamond worth either $80,000 (according to his ex-wife’s divorce suit) or $10,000, according to Biden’s response to the suit, but in any case, much beyond the normal range of business gratuities.
But Ukraine is where Hunter Biden has apparently cashed in most extensively, trading on his father’s name and position. In 2013-2014, a right-wing populist movement backed by the CIA and the German government gained the upper hand in an internal power struggle within the Ukraine capitalist class.
The Maidan “revolution” was actually a right-wing coup, spearheaded by outright fascist forces, some of whom marched under Nazi insignias, against the elected president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was aligned with the Russian government of Vladimir Putin.
Ukraine has been a “wild west” for the operations of foreign intelligence services and capitalist oligarchs at least since the so-called Orange Revolution of 2004, the first successful effort by Washington to bring to power a US-backed regime in one of the major countries emerging from the breakup of the Soviet Union.


Joe Biden trots out his dead family members every chance he gets.  He's been married to Jill, for example, for decades.  But he can't stop trying to get sympathy for losing his first wife.  Apparently, he also trots the dead members out constantly becuase the living ones are so damn corrupt.

I believe it was Elizabeth Edwards, in the fall of 2007, who suggested to the press that if Hillary couldn't even handle her family how was she up to the job of president?  At best, Joe has just looked the other way as unethical deals have been made by his family members who used access to him to rake in millions.  At worst?  Joe may have been an active participant.

He's stated he never spoke to Hunter about the Ukraine deal.  Hunter told THE NEW YORKER that they had one conversation.  But let's again note this Tweet about a photo that was unearthed this week.



BREAKING: After Joe Biden claimed that he never discussed his son’s foreign business dealings with him, A photo surfaced, from 2014, showing the former VP and his son golfing with a board member of the Ukrainian company that paid Hunter Biden $50k a month. This. Is. Corruption.

Yesterday's snapshot noted the protest that were just starting to take place in Baghdad (and elsewhere in Iraq).  Last night, Margaret Griffis (ANTIWAR.COM) noted:

Protests across Iraq have left at least 10 dead and 286 wounded. The injured included 40 security personnel. The fatalities occurred in Baghdad and Nasariya. At least 11 people were arrested in Basra. The Iraqi government blamed “groups of riot inciters” for the violence.
At least 1,000 people gathered in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square, where much of the violence took place; the trigger may have been an attempt to enter the Green Zone. This is largest gathering since Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi took power last year. Security personnel at some point had turned to live ammunition to disperse the crowds. Demonstrations were also reported in Basra, Dhi Qar, Diwaniya, Karbala, Najaf, Nasariya and Wasit. Use of live ammo to clear protesters was also reported in Nasariya, where a fatality occurred.
Among the complaints are lack of  basic services, rampant corruption, and unequal treatment within the Iraqi Army. Many of the protesters are unemployable college graduates. Riots during the summer of 2018 turned deadly as well. Today, however, the recent removal Iraq’s counterterrorism chief, Lt. Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi from his post was an added motive to demonstrate; many marchers carried his photo with them.

When it comes to protests, I always have to question Margaret's wording.  The headline, for example, "protest turn violent."  Really?  Now Margaret can rightly question me back (that I'm too sympathetic to protesters) but the protests didn't turn violent, the security response was violent.  For me, her voice is always too passive when Iraqi security attacks the Iraqi people.

3 traders métaux précieux de la JP Morgan accusés de manipulation   

Cache   

 Tiens donc. Cette semaine, on apprend que 3 nouveaux traders de la JP Morgan vont être jugés pour manipulation des marchés à terme des métaux précieux. Et il n’y a pas que du menu fretin du côté des employés de la banque américaine qui vont se retrouver devant le tribunal. Ces accusations ressemblent furieusement à celles des « paranoïaques » qui investissent dans l’or et l’argent…La justice américaine les accuse en effet de « machinations massives ayant eu lieu durant de nombreuses années » afin de manipuler les marchés. Les autorités ont également indiqué qu’elles continuaient d’enquêter aux échelons supérieurs de la plus grande banque américaine. Du Financial Times : La JP Morgan à nouveau au centre des accusations de manipulation du marché de l’or et de l’argent Michael Nowak, responsable du trading métaux précieux, a été inculpé ce lundi avec ses collègues Gregg Smith et Christopher Jordan. Ils sont accusés de racket, un chef d’inculpation habituellement réservé aux organisations mafieuses. Leconte: Le prix de l’Or fait l’objet d’un certain nombre de manipulations et elles sont de 3 ordres… La mise en examen accuse les 3 traders de s’être engagé « dans du spoofing généralisé, des manipulations et des fraudes » durant leurs activités à la JP Morgan, qui est avec HSBC l’acteur le plus important du trading [...]

Joker – la critique   

Cache   

 

Joker est sans doute le film très attendu de cet automne. À juste titre à vrai dire, car s’attaquer au méchant le plus emblématique de l’univers DC/Batman est un enjeu de taille, après avoir déjà été maintes fois adapté au cinéma avec plus ou moins de brio. Si l’on retient comme prestations réellement mémorables celles de Jack Nicholson dans le Batman de Burton et Heath Ledger dans le second volet de la trilogie de Christopher Nolan nous viennent tout de suite à l'esprit. D’autres, plus « anecdotiques », plus décalées nous ont offert d’autres lectures de ce personnage emblématique (Jared Leto dans Suicide Squad notamment), tant et si bien que les figures du joker sont multiples et que chacun va de sa petite préférence pour telle ou telle interprétation. Personnellement, c’est celle de Heath Ledger qui m’a conquise, avec une vision sombre et brutale d’un méchant dont on ne sait rien, ce qui nous fait redoubler de terreur face à ses actes. Grande fan de Joaquin Phoenix que j’avais particulièrement apprécié dans (notamment) le très sombre A Beautiful Day, nettement moins fan de Todd Phillips, le père des Very Bad Trip, j’attendais ce joker avec une impatience en demie-teinte, persuadée que la relecture de mon méchant préféré tiendrait plus de Nicholson que de Ledger, et dans les mains d’un réalisateur que je n'affectionnais pas particulièrement. Vous aurez donc noté l’usage du passé sur cette dernière phrase, car Joker a surpassé mes attentes, et demeure à la hauteur de toutes les critiques dithyrambiques qu’il agite partout autour de lui. À l’aube de sa sortie en salle, voici ce que vous devez savoir pour aller voir (ou non, mais ce serait dingue) ce film.
