Joker has a very important message about mental illness, and everyone should watch it. Maybe it will make people think twice about how they treat others.
October 22, 2019
But still: a provocation. Performance art. And an ongoing conversation.

A study of descent into primal levels of reaction. Forget about superheroes. There are none to be seen in this version of Gotham. [Full review in Spanish].

Joker is a jumble - sometimes brilliant and sometimes trite. Among its flashes of excellence is a self-serious movie that isn't nearly as deep as it thinks it is.
October 18, 2019
A disturbing and frightening origin story that reflects on sensitive issues that affect today's society. Joaquin Phoenix's bravura performance as the popular comic book villain is nothing short of extraordinary. [Full Review in Spanish]

Ugly, grotesque, depressing and yet quite fantastic...
October 18, 2019
It's undeniably bleak to watch, but Phoenix demands our attention... and gets it.
October 17, 2019
Joker is a wicked trip.
October 17, 2019
Director Todd Phillips does not let up on the bleakness at any point. It is a film firmly grounded in humanity and ordinary and basic human vulnerabilities and needs in moments of challenge.
October 16, 2019
Digging deep into his role, Phoenix was the secret weapon required to make us understand the human pain behind Joker's wickedness.
October 15, 2019
Phoenix's Joker is a monster of his own making, and the film succeeds in blurring the lines between fantasy, reality, and hyper-reality, manipulating its audience to participate in the horror while challenging the individual's own mental soundness.
October 15, 2019
Joker is a film to admire more than like. But it shouldn't be underestimated. It is a massively impressive, highly intelligent, openly provocative and ferociously performed masterpiece.
October 14, 2019
Being one of the few Hollywood actors willing to risk, Phoenix makes the protagonist a man as repellent as fascinating. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 14, 2019
Director without the artistic mastery of a Scorsese, but with capable to recognize the effectiveness of an incendiary speech on the screen in these times of social suspicion. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 13, 2019
Writer-director Todd Phillips and co-writer Scott Silver are taking societal problems that you might see explored in a Ken Loach film and bringing them into the superhero realm.
October 13, 2019
Joker offers enough to make it not a complete waste of everyone's talent, but the movie lacks that extra "wow" factor.
October 13, 2019
If violence is a natural product of a community that is learning to take pleasure from hatred, Joker affords us a glimpse of the coming apocalypse.
October 12, 2019
Joker knows that its status as a property trumps secondary considerations like art and originality, but it purports to offer both under the safe and reassuring DC umbrella.
October 12, 2019
A slow burn approach that delves into the psyche of the man who would become the Joker. It's an affecting and upsetting experience, but that's the point.
October 12, 2019
It knew what it was doing. The performance is so intense, with just the right register for the film...hard-boiled cinema, it managed to do something new...
