I haven't seen a Joaquin Phoenix film since I'm Still Here back in 2010. I was reminded of what a brilliant actor he is. Not only did he bring an innocence to a role that could have been played much darker, but he brought a physical humor to it.
Because Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first full-length animated feature to ever be put into production, there was this huge learning curve. There was a lot of stuff that Walt and his team had to learn the hard way on this project.
