I hate the celebrity culture. I hate the fact that people become famous,
just for the sake of being famous. I hate the fact that just because a
celebrity gets married or has a child, that's front page news. I hate
reality TV. I hate shows like "Pop Idol" (or "American Idol"), where normal
people seem to think they are destined for A-list status. The fact that this
film (The King of Comedy) is as old as I am, is either an all too worrying
statement on society, or proves that it was way ahead of its time. Maybe
that's why I love it so much.
De Niro has always amazed me, but the fact that he seems to understand this
character so well is a little overwhelming. Whether he is delivering
cringeworthy gags to a cardboard audience, or embarrassing himself,
obliviously, in front of Jerry Lewis, his consistency is amazing. His
motives are understandable to anyone who's ever had a dream. Perhaps it's De
Niro's early ambition as an actor, that fuelled this shamefully overlooked
Jerry Lewis is perfect as the disgruntled TV host. A man who lives a
double-life of hilarious TV personality, with a bitter persona off-screen.
You can certainly relate to this man's motivations, his love for his work,
but his resistance to allow it run his personal life.
The only character I can't totally emphasize with is Sandra Bernhard's Masha
(her actions aren't justified as well as De Niro's Rupert). But maybe that
just goes with my aforementioned hatred for celebrity culture. The scary
thing is, I know that people like this exist, and I didn't for a second,
question the feasibility of her performance.
As usual, Scorsese shows brilliant control, despite this being one of his
most modest works.
"The King of Comedy" should be looked upon, now more than ever, as a very
important film, that has a lot to say about the world we live in and the
obsessions that we consume. 9/10
