It’s the season of love, Readers!
Normally, this season is greeted with a healthy mixture of dread and joy, which everyone knows is the perfect way to embrace any romantic relationship. For the dread-leaning folks out there (you are in good company), these posts will hopefully distract you from your hungry heart. For you love-leaners, these posts will hopefully perpetuate your good vibes.
Since this is my first time (um, with this theme), let’s break it down:
Each year, I will choose a worthy movie icon of my love. I’m picky about this. With analyses of films starring this icon, I hope to enrapture you, The Loyal Readers, with the same fascination I possess for said icon.
This year, the choice was obvious: Joaquin Phoenix. Commanding the spotlight with all of his roles, the man has made an equally formidable Joker and a stellar Johnny Cash. In addition to those bodies of work, we will check out some of Phoenix’s other films – some romantic, and some not so much to achieve that precise mixture of dread and joy we crave each February.
