Does David O. Russell even try to make interesting films anymore or is he solely set on making Oscar bait for the rest of his career?
His latest film Joy looks like a mess of all sorts of proportions, not to mention the overplayed music choice and general lack of excitement. Oh, the film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper, which will certainly grab the attention of most.
I’m sure O. Russell’s film will be a success and I really hope that it has more to offer than this weak over-important first trailer, but only time will tell.
Joy hits theaters this Christmas.
