Movie Review: Joy (’15 David O. Russell)

Joy is in no way a perfect film but in my eyes it was a decent autobiography based taled that worked in most parts. The writing was well woven. The transition is a bit a mess though. I find the direction quite a let down as it never really cease the gorgeousness and potential of the film as a whole. Nonetheless, the winning part of Joy is that it was able to stand behind such incredible performances from the cast. From Jennifer Lawrence who I thought delivered her best to date to Bradley Cooper’s slick and stunning performance. Robert De Niro is also an added touch, giving us a well rounded all star cast performance. In the end, Joy‘s strengths definitely outweigh its weaknesses. 7.5
