Joaquin Phoenix, in another outstanding performance.
February 11, 2020
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...
January 22, 2020
Ultimately, Joker blames society for its "hero's" unraveling, letting this maniac off the hook. Simplistic, yes. Reckless, undoubtedly. But not totally invalid.

Todd Phillips creates a terrifying masterpiece and one of the best and most daring comic book films ever made.
January 13, 2020
an original thought-piece that builds on the dissonance of the past as a way to conjecture about the future.
January 10, 2020
Joaquin Phoenix gives one of the most memorable performances of the year and of his career in Todd Phillips' Joker.

I've seen or read so many types of Joker stories with so many types of Jokers that I can't possibly be shocked or bothered by what happens in the story, but I can say that everyone involved made a good film

When he finally does put on the colourful suit and painted face, it's akin to watching a horror movie monster emerge.

Fear of the masses - in a movie. And a bold, startling when not mournful expression of simmering low wage police state millennial generation misery.

Phoenix overcomes the self-pity inherent in the material; he gives Arthur a sweet soul, and makes it hard not to like him, and to cringe when you see his next humiliation coming. In that sense, Joker is compelling.

Joker is dark enough that you'll appreciate stepping out of the theater and into the light.
December 20, 2019
A visceral, disturbing, but empathetic celebration of revenge.

It's twisted, it's funny, it's disturbing, but beautiful.
December 11, 2019
What cannot be argued is that Phoenix has once again turned in an Oscar-worthy performance...
December 11, 2019
Joker is a decent movie. It has its strengths: Phoenix's tour de force performance and Hildur Guðnadóttir's score among them. But for all that, it's not really worthy of all the hand-wringing it's inspired.
December 7, 2019
Joker begs for understanding and kindness, of which there is hardly any in the film. Phoenix should finally win an Oscar for his performance. He is heartbreaking.
December 4, 2019
Joker is an uncomfortable film that focuses on the beautiful cinematography and subtle dialogue to reflect on symbolic meanings and deeper thought of an individual's sanity.
December 2, 2019
There are several outstanding moments, a particular favourite of mine being Fleck dressed in a red suit, full make up, dancing on the stairs to THAT song...
November 29, 2019
Fleck is a literal amalgam of both Thalia and Melpomene, an intriguing interpretation that positions his internal tension as the source of Joker's madness.
