Why to watch this movie?
Joker is an original, standalone story. It is a story of a failed comedian.
People who like comic book movies, suspense, drama, there is a little bit for everybody (over the age of 18).
It is dark and gritty, anarchistic and nasty, chaotic and filthy. In short, it’s wonderful.
Plot Forever alone in a crowd of Gotham City, mentally troubled comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection but is disregarded and mistreated by society. Arthur wears two masks -- the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he's part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded he then embarks on a downward spiral of revolution and bloody crime. This path brings him face-to-face with his alter-ego: the Joker. Story Review The actor puts a horrifically human face on an iconic comic-book villain in the year's most controversial movie.Joaquin Phoenix gives a terrific performance, fearless and stunning in its emotional depth and physicality. It's impossible to talk about this without referencing Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning performance from The Dark Knight, widely considered the definitive live-action portrayal of the Joker.The fact is, everyone is going to be stunned by what Phoenix accomplishes, because it's what many thought impossible - a portrayal that matches and potentially exceeds that of The Dark Knight'.
Tech Review The music feels so simple and subtle at first, but the more you listen to it, like in “Defeated Clown” the more you begin to get a sense of shade.
"Joker" director Todd Phillips used composer Hildur Guonadottir's music to make the scenes (that weren’t working) extraordinary. Cinematography is raw and impactful.The camera work let the audience connect with the story and the character deeply. Lawrence Sher used natural colours and lighting to show the reality of the city which makes it a “masterpiece” to watch.
