This is undeniably a great film. Each and every scene is masterfully crafted. Mis-en-scene, coupled with perfectly timed sound design and music, are on point making every shot worth consuming. THE actor lived up with the expectation. It's unimaginable to act as Arthur Fleck, and then the Joker. I bet that THE actor had to exert so much energy and truly understand the complexity of the character in order to effectively play the role. I am inclined to believe that the plot points are just right, nothing really fancy, it did not force anything, what happens just happens. Anyway, this is obviously a character-driven film. A character that no one seemed to fully grasp yet a character we definitely recognize. Not to mention the backdrop of all these acts; the cold dark Gotham City. Gotham is a …

The interpretation of “The Joker” by Jack Nicholson was masterful. He played a mean Joker who was obsessed with money and power. But without a doubt, Heath Ledger’s interpretation is the most legendary. He played Joker’s insanity and psychopathic behavior in an unparalleled way. An outstanding acting performance. What Joaquin Phoenix does in this film, however, is breathtaking and brilliant at the same time. After “You were …

Joaquin Phoenix is fantastic as Arthur Fleck, aka the Joker. He’s sad, disturbing, menacing, and haunting to watch. Of all people, it’s the Hangover guy that makes the best interpretation of the iconic character since Christopher Nolan did eleven years ago.
The tension is maintained throughout the movie. It’s not a slasher film though. Much more of a slow burn in the mold of Taxi Driver. The recreation of Gotham City as this grimy seedy hellhole much like a Scorsesesque New York is wonderfully realized.
It’s really not a heroic portrayal of the character either. At first viewers will pity Arthur Fleck for the hapless situation he winds up in. But soon learn he’s far more sinister and dangerous than they realize. It seems to me that the Joker persona he gradually becomes …

Okay so let's start by saying that the one and only reason this movie is getting a 3 star rating instead of 4 is the fact that the begining drug very bad nothing really went on for the longest time but after it got started it never gave up such a good action packed thriller and i really recommend seeing it just please NO KIDS its rated R for several reasons and a scene at the end is so graphic parents and elderly folks were leaving so do yourself a favor and hire a sitter but see it see it see it
