Also this. The Departed is also filled with comedy. It's a drama, so the purpose of the movie isn't to make you laugh, but it has some hilarious moments throughout.
It seems like you don't even know what you want/like....
Every movie needs light hearted moments tbh. They don't have to be as rampant as Marvel movies but you need the tone shifts to create stronger emotions and to help connect to the audience.
Movies that are purely one thing tend to be stressful and boring and disconnected. It doesn't have to be "comedy" per say, but most good movies do have tone shifts.
E: a lot.. A LOT of people tend to deal with stress and stuff through comedy, which is why comedy tends to be the easiest and quickest way to create these moments, which is why it's the most common.This post was edited by Blah58 on Feb 11 2019 07:58pm
