Fans of the book stay away - this film opted important narrative points for cheap scares. If you enjoy pop-up scares then I'd recommend this film, but if you read the book ... prepare to be disappointed at best.
I'm bummed to state I thought this film was just OK. The acting is incredible as well as the soundtrack, but the abstract plot structure made it hard for me to really dive into this narrative.
Joaquin Phoenix completely transforms into the melancholic yet, still hopeful clown in this new feature. However, something that should be as profoundly disturbing as some of the scenes are, doesn't really leave viewers with an anguishing remembrance as they're leaving the theater. In other words, it has been about five hours since I've seen this film and I continuously forget its existence. Powerful acting, subsequent climaxes, but nothing that necessarily "hits home." Although, I will say, despite his nuanced quirks, it's easy to see a little bit of Arthur Fleck in all of us.
