American filmmaker David Ayer has faced repetitive criticism
for his movie. David in a Twitter statement said that the version audiences saw
in theatres was not his film. He has received repeated attacks since the poorly
reviewed 2016’s Suicide Squad film was released.
With the recent release of James
Gunn’s reboot “The Suicide Squad” in the offing, several people have commented
on the superiority of the current film, in comparison with Ayer’s version.
On Friday, David shared a statement on Twitter where he
highlighted the difficulties that he has been through in life and stressed that
he won’t give in to the criticism. The filmmaker also pointed out that the
version of the film released in theatres was not his cut.
Ayer reacted to a critic’s tweet slamming his Suicide Squad,
he wrote that the ‘studio cut’ was not his movie. He said, “I put my life into
Suicide Squad. I made something amazing – My cut is an intricate and emotional
journey with some ‘bad people’ who are s**t on and discarded (a theme that
resonates in my soul).”
He further added, “The studio cut is not my movie. Read that
again. And my cut is not the 10-week director’s cut – It’s a fully mature edit
by Lee Smith standing on the incredible work by John Gilroy. It’s all Steven
Price’s brilliant score, with not a single radio song in the whole thing.”
He continued, “It has traditional character arcs, amazing
performances, a solid 3rd Act resolution. A handful of people have seen it. If
someone says they have seen it, they haven’t.
”Talking about the criticism he
also spoke about his childhood, and mentioned his father’s suicide, witnessing
murder and crime, jumping between foster homes, and landing up in the navy.
