Joaquin Phoenix was absolutely phenomenal as Arthur Fleck. Some of the best acting I’ve seen all year. This was the most uncomfortable movie experiences I've had in awhile. A brutal dive into madness that was so bleak and yet so compelling. The score by Hildur Guðnadóttir helped set the tone tremendously. A melancholy tone with a chaotic twist. The cinematography was gorgeous and there’s a handful of shots that has imprinted into my memory. I like how they actually gave Thomas Wayne a character rather than “guy gets shot in alleyway”.

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 …
