Even when Joker ventures into morally murky territory, it feels grimly realistic.

It made me think, it made me feel, it had a powerful performance at its core.

It's a good but deeply affecting movie.

You got to hand it to Joaquin Phoenix for fully inhabited his role of a loner on the verge of psychological breakdown in "Joker".

For all the hype and anxiety surrounding the film, one can't help but walk away asking, all of that noise for this?

Joaquin Phoenix, in another outstanding performance.

It's disingenuous and pandering for Phillips to root through a grab bag of resentments and pick out only the least problematic, like he's trying to find the last candy in the bag that isn't licorice.

JOKER is a beautiful but simplistically shallow tale of one man's downward spiral, tacked on to a recognisable cinematic icon. Todd Phillips's film is a Batmobile with the engine of a clown car.

The more I watched it, the more I disliked it. Just did not work for me, I hate this movie.

The whole damn thing is directed with such boldness and vision that Todd Phillips (yeah, the Hangover guy) should never look back again. A big-screen must see.

Not only an intelligent throwback to the feel-bad shock cinema of the 1970s, Joker is all but unique in its social realism...

Cinema is dead. Here is your proof.

For just over two hours we are forced into alignment with a monster. And, not only that, it wants us to unrepentantly side with him. It feels hyperbolic to say that this results in a terrible sense of inescapable unease when watching, but it's the truth.

For what it is, it's gorgeously assembled, with a ragged jewel of a performance by Joaquin Phoenix at its center. The problem is, well, what it is... Joker ends up repeating itself and lap-dancing its same handful of nihilistic points again and again.

Ultimately, Joker blames society for its "hero's" unraveling, letting this maniac off the hook. Simplistic, yes. Reckless, undoubtedly. But not totally invalid.
January 21, 2020
...A lethally dull and spiritually deadening exercise whose strained black humor and self-importance makes even the profundities of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy feel meaningful by comparison.

I implore you: move on from Joker. You are better than this. We all are.

His story wasn't interesting to me because there never was a valid option for him to chose a different path.

Is it good? Parts of it. Did I enjoy it? Not really.

Todd Phillips creates a terrifying masterpiece and one of the best and most daring comic book films ever made.
