THE KING OF COMEDY (1982) is a very dark comedy directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Robert De Niro and Jerry Lewis. Both actors turn in terrific performances and their dialogue is absolutely brilliant. De Niro especially does a great job playing this oblivious psychopath who manages to both be really funny and kinda unsettling at the same time. THE KING OF COMEDY is funny, engaging, unnerving, mind-bending, and even a little sad. And it further goes to show that comedy really is pain.

The King of Comedy je satirična crna komedija koju je režirao veliki Martin Scorsese. U pitanju je još jedna od njegovih kolaboracija sa Robert De Nirom ( Raging Bull, Taxi Driver…). Radnja ovog filma prati, nimalo simpatičnog, veoma neuspešnog čoveka, po imenu Richar Pupkin, koji je opsednut željom da postane komičar, odnosno kralj komedije - kako naziv i nalaže. Nakon neuspelih, “normalnih” puteva ka uspehu, njegova želja ga odvodi korak dalje, ka ozbiljnom ugrožavanju privatnosti njegovog idola, voditelja po imenu Jerry Langford. U glavnim ulogama su fenomenalni Robert de Niro i Jerry Lewis, koji glumi malo izmenjenu verziju sebe. Iako se ovaj film svrstava u komediju, njegov žanr je mnogo kompleksniji i ne bi trebalo očekivati film koji će vas na jednostavan način zabaviti. U pitanju je ostvarenje koje je na momente veoma teško i neprijatno za gledanje i čiji satirični humor treba tražiti na nešto višem nivou, stoga bismo ga mi više svrstali u dramu. Ovo je film sa veoma jakom porukom o stanju društva, koji je u današnje vreme čak još više relevantan nego u momentu kada je izašao i mi vam preporučujemo da ga pogledate.

Žanr: Komedija, Crime, Drama, Triler
IMDB ocena: 7.8
Trajanje: 1h 49min
Glumci: Robert De Niro, Jerry Lewis, Diahnne Abbott
- Priča prati Rupert Pupkin-a, čoveka opsednutog željom da postane komičar, koja ga odvodi predaleko u vrlo dijabolični plan koji uključuje njegovog idola, voditelja - Jerry Langforda.

The King of Comedy je film koji veoma poštujemo, ali ga nije lako gledati. Glavni lik ovog filma je tako sjajno neprijatno napisan i odglumljen, da vas ne može ostaviti ravnodušnim. Kada sve saberemo, ovo specifično ostvarenje od nas dobija veoma jaku ocenu (4+).

Did You Know? The story was partially autobiographical for Paul Schrader, who suffered a nervous breakdown while living in Los Angeles. He was fired from the AFI, basically friendless, in the midst of a divorce, and was rejected by a girlfriend. Squatting in his ex-girlfriend's apartment while she was away for a couple of months, Schrader literally didn't talk to anyone for many weeks, he went to porno theatres, and developed an obsession with guns. Schrader was working at the time as a delivery man for a chain of chicken restaurants. Spending long days alone in his car, he felt, I might as well be a taxi driver.

Robert De Niro worked 12 hour shifts for a month driving cabs to prepare for his role. He studied mental illness, and Midwestern dialects to come up with Travis Bickle's flat voice●Screewriter, Paul Schrader was inspired to write the script after reading the published diary of Arthur Bremer, the man who was convicted of shooting presidential hopeful George Wallace. Bremer was 26 years old in 1976 (the year the film was released), the same age as Travis Bickle in the film. And Schrader himself was 26 when he first wrote the screenplay, in 1972. He wrote it in 5 days. As he was writing, he kept a loaded gun on his desk for motivation and inspiration◆In the original screenplay, the characters Sport (Harvey Keitel) and the hotel clerk were all black. Scorsese felt that combined with other events in the film, this would have stacked the deck too much towards racial issues●Between the time De Niro signed the contract to appear in this film and when it began filming, he won an Oscar for his role in The Godfather: Part II. He honored his original deal so the film could be made. De Niro's on-and-off girlfriend in the 70s Diahnne Abbott appears as the concession girl in the porn theater near the beginning of the film

The most underrated of the great De Niro/Scorsese collaboration. Dark comedy dealing with fame and our obsession with people that have it and wanting it no matter the cost. There are some funny moments in this movie but mostly it’s a hard movie to sit thru. De Niro’s character Rupert Pupkin is obviously mentally disturbed and his unhealthy obsession with Jerry Lewis character Jerry Langford make for some really uncomfortable scenes and I can’t help but look away in embarrassment for him. But it is a great movie you can’t go wrong with everyone involved.
