Joker

15
Joaquin Phoenix is Arthur Fleck – a man living in Gotham City in 1981, a misunderstood loner and loser. By day, he’s an unsuccessful clown-for-hire, and by night he’s an even less successful stand-up comic. Charting the formative years of the Batman’s nemesis, we meet Arthur as he moves towards the fringes of society, starting on the path which will see him become the Joker. Fired from his job and humiliated, Joker is determined that his tormentors will sit up and take notice of him. Todd Phillips has clearly taken inspiration from Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy (to the extent that there’s a role for Robert De Niro as a cheesy talkshow host) in this unflinching and violent portrait. “As Arthur/Joker, Joaquin Phoenix is astonishing” Empire “They do not disguise their debt to Martin Scorsese in a film that has clear echoes of The King of Comedy and Taxi Driver, yet Joker is also thrillingly original, with an extraordinary performance by Phoenix at its dark heart.” Daily Mail “This is a truly nightmarish vision of late-era capitalism – arguably the best social horror film since Get Out – and Joaquin Phoenix is magnetic in it.” Time Out “”Joker” achieves two contradictory goals simultaneously, delivering a blockbuster that highlights what is eternally captivating about the character, while at the same time offering a sobering critique of the nihilism that has long been the Joker’s M.O.” Screen International 15: contains strong bloody violence, language
