Joy Reviews and Ratings
Joy is a misfire, no questions asked. A crushing bore of a film from a director who has shown he’s capable of so much more.
Russell is a genius. It usually takes just one great movie to be called that. He has three. Joy doesn’t work and that’s disappointing more than anything else.
Joy is a decent biographical drama anchored by J-Law’s performance, but fails to realise its greater ambitions.
And J-Law is fine on her own, thank you very much. Don’t be surprised if she wipes the floor with all competition to win her second Oscar.
