Brilliantly orchestrated! Epitomizing cinema noir. Every character personified a sort of collective dementia adding to the Films mysterious vulnerable soul. Felliniesque with an Asian flavor! Funny, dramatic, caustic and a remarkable cohesive cast. Typical noir ending,or should we say, no ending devoid of closure.
Phoenix is superb! His transformation morphed into the sad, sadistic, sanguine scrawny Joker exceeds all expectations. Certainly Academy Award nomination! The movie lacked editing. Very slow...slower...boring at times. MEH!
The film delivered all expectations-fun to watch, never a dull sleepy moment, dialogue on point considering the nature of the movie. The intoxicating stunts added the "fun" value to the experience. Go see it!!!!
