“Joker”

9.1

A moment in film history I think we will look back on as a turning point. This film is so much more than it’s comic book overlay and much more important to society as a whole than it is advancing the narrative of the DC character. This film delves so deeply into realism as the main character essentially unravels to his core, you can’t help but be sucked in and be brought along for the ride. Joaquin Phoenix deserves all of the Oscars for this one. The mirror the film holds up to society is one of the most effective gut punches a film has delivered in quite some time. Definitely a must-see from me. It is certainly dark, but not quite as violent as I had anticipated. There are short bursts scattered throughout the film. Very well pace, written, acted, and overall executed film!
