User Review

  • ‘Joker’ is a strikingly original attempt at re-invigorating the DC films brand, infusing a certain level of artistry and character development some might have been missing from their previous films. Joaquin Phoenix gives a masterful performance, portraying a broken man battered by society into becoming the symbol of anarchy, rebellion and villainy that we know and love to hate. If Phillips fully committed to his craft and omitted the heavy-handed story beats and dialogue that compromised the fluidity of his intent, the Joker could have been a story for the ages – instead, its a pretty great story for right now.
