#704. The King of Comedy (1983)
Why It's In The Book: "Coming after Taxi Driver (1976) and especially Raging Bull (1980), Martin Scorsese’s The King of Comedy might initially seem comparatively light…
the crucial key to The King of Comedy is Jerry Lewis… playing, after all those years as a patsy, more or less an arrogant, bitter, and jaded version of himself. Lewis’s dramatic break from his goofy public persona blurs the difference between fact and fiction… Scorsese seems equally interested in the power and pitfalls of fame in general, offering The King of Comedy as a scathing indictment of the way our society overvalues celebrity." -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Michaël Parent - 9/10
"Far from being Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece, it is a very personal effort and another exceptional pairing with DeNiro."
Nicolas Krizan - 9/10
"delusions and misdirected self-aggrandizing"
Sunny D - 8.5/10
"Everything about The King of Comedy is fairly warped. But of course I totally mean that in a good way."
Adolytsi - 8/10
"Every nuance of De Niro’s performance elicits pathos; he brings to Rupert Pupkin a sense of wanting, a dreamer not yet able to live his dream, almost a child in a man’s body."
Movie Guy Steve - 7/10
"...there’s a little bit of Rupert Pupkin in all of us."
Siochembio - 7/10
"As much as De Niro is the lead character, I remember this film because of Jerry Lewis."
Squish - 7/10
"Jerry Lewis in the best role I’ve seen him play...Jerry plays Jerry with such profound contained pathos that he completely steals the show, and becomes the reason to watch."
