2023 saw Joaquin Phoenix feature in two acclaimed projects - Ari Aster's surrealist tragic comedy Beau Is Afraid, followed by Ridley Scott's grandly mounted historical drama Napoleon in which the actor essayed the titular role. The complex Ridley Scott directorial, after an optimistic theatrical run, has now been made available for streaming on OTT.

Separately, though Joaquin Phoenix's commitment to the titular role of Napoleon along with Ridley Scott's vision was widely appreciated by critics and audience alike, the film appears to have largely been snubbed at the awards circuit. The film is currently awaiting the Critics Choice Awards in which Janty Yates and David Crossman stand nominated under the category of Best Costume Design.

Napoleon marks Joaquin Phoenix's professional reunion with Ridley Scott after over two decades


In an interview with Columbia Pictures, Joaquin Phoenix revealed that the decision to be a part of Napoleon was largely driven by nostalgia. Phoenix and Scott had last worked together on 2000 cult film Gladiator.

He said, "The truth is, there was just a very nostalgic idea of working with Ridley again. I had such an incredible experience working with Ridley on Gladiator, and I was so young. It was my first big production. I really yearned for that experience again, or something similar. He’s approached me about other things in the past, but nothing that felt like it would be as demanding for both of us. And so I really liked the idea of jumping into something with Ridley that was going to be that."
