watchmen film


“Female empowerment is a thing I’ve gone after in all my films. They all have strong female representation. It’s about time Wonder Woman was represented correctly.” - Zack Snyder

can u believe zack snyder gave us both watchmen and batman v superman (and man of steel obvi but ya)????? can u actually believe this man gave us two distinct superhero films that were polarizing topics both times by critics? two films that deconstruct superheroes under layers of complex cinematography, with the most distinct and iconic lines in both cbms? there’s something so particular about watchmen and batman v superman, the similarities yet differences, the shared themes in separate executions, the storytelling, the framework of everything, i just……im speechless…what a man…what a gift to superhero films and storytelling….

Watchmen (Zack Snyder, 2009)

Rorschach: «Blake saw society’s true face, chose to be a parody of it, a joke. I Heard joke once: Man goes to doctor, says he’s depressed, life seems harsh and cruel; says he feels all alone in threatening world. Doctor says treatment is simple “The great clown Pagliacci is in town, go see him, that should pick you up”, man bursts into tears, “But doctor”, he says, “I am Pagliacci” … Good joke, everybody laugh, roll on snare drum, curtains».
