Surely the most realistic depiction of a supervillain becoming a supervillain thus far.
November 18, 2020
Joker is a subversion of the trope of the hero's journey, made for a villain.

Without Mr. Phoenix, Joker would be kind of dull.

Joker is repulsive, cynical garbage that tries acting more meaningful than it actually is.
September 17, 2020
Joker is a one-man show...the riot scenes near the end of Joker reflect something true in society, and they brought the film out of its shell.
September 13, 2020
It's one of 2019's most unforgettable cinematic experiences.
August 20, 2020
A comic book movie with sufficient creative liberty to become a psychological thriller that talks about the darkest feelings of human reality. [Full review in Spanish]

Repellent and pitiful at the same time, Phoenix is absolutely riveting.
August 16, 2020
Phillips constructs a palpable sense of down-and-dirty dread, helped by Phoenix's commitment ... but the movie stops short of ever expressing an opinion.

What an electrifying performance by Phoenix ... It's the work of a fearless performer, and the result is an acting masterclass.
July 8, 2020

Joker is dark, dense, violent, and monstrous. A descent into Hades that is unlike anything we've seen on screen that's inspired by a comic [Full review in Spanish]

Well I just saw the feel-good movie of the year. Yikes!
