Well you couldn’t exactly call me a film buff, but for what my opinion is worth, you ought go to see Joker. Wendy and I did last night, on a whim.
It is brilliant, and it’ll clean up at the Oscars, you’ll see.
Wendy DEFINITELY isn’t a film buff either, demonstrated by this example.
The film stars Joaquin Phoenix and Robert de Niro. As Robbo dN looks a bit different for some reason in the film from how I think he should look (?) I couldn’t quite place his name at first ( yep, again demonstrating my non film buffness ) but I did know that I’d seen him in Goodfellas the other night and he is a massive star!
So I said to Wendy, feeling a touch embarrassed ‘ sorry, but can you believe I can’t remember his real name! Who is he ?! ‘
She looked a bit blank for a bit, then a spark of recollection crossed her face, and she said …
‘ is it Ronny Corbett ?’
