Joker is a movie about Todd Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society. I was very excited when Warner Bros announced that they are going to release a movie about their take on The Joker's origin. I feel like it's a very hard movie to nailed and a very ambitious project. Then, I found out that Joaquin Phoenix is going to be their new Joker, which got me more excited. Cause Joaquin Phoenix was always a phenomenal actor, but he never had an iconic role and not very known by the mainstream audience. Todd Phillips as a director is famous for making comedy movies like The Hangover Trilogy and War Dogs (2016). So technically, this movie is his first "serious" vibes kind of movie., At first, I have a concern that the film will be too focused on showing us what makes The Joker so scary as a villain rather than building a character arc for The Joker and not trying to make us invest in the character. But, after watching it. I'm speechless. This movie is just phenomenal. Because right from the start of the movie. They immediately start building up the story about Arthur Fleck's character. There are no "warmup scenes" whatsoever. They just start telling us the story, so we can start to invest in it right from the start. , We sympathize with him because we see how tragic his life is. But as the film progress, we also see that he's about to trigger and become unhinged because of all the tragedy that happens to him. Our feelings towards Arthur Fleck is changing as we see all the decision and action that he chooses. From having sympathy for him to being terrified of him because he's unpredictable. He's a wild card. We don't know what kind of action he will take next. But we understand why he did what he did. Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker is just mesmerizing. His portrayal of The Joker feels like it truly belongs to him, it's different from the other version of The Joker. His take on The Joker's laugh is also unique. His laugh is just disturbing, unsettling and "painful". We can feel it. Every time his scene came up. He just grabs it. He dominates the scene every single time. There's this scene where he gives some kind of a speech. Just from the way he talks, he moves, his expression, his lip movement, his hand gestures. It screams The Joker. I think Joaquin's version of The Joker is the only Joker that is on par with Heath Ledger's Joker. Joaquin Phoenix truly deserves an Oscar nomination for his performance and I wouldn't be shocked if he did win the Best Actor nomination. I love that this movie is a character-centric story. It takes it's time to build the story and the character. It respects the process and doesn't rush it. It doesn't give a one big leap jump. But it adds a build-up to the story little by little. The pacing of the movie is just perfect. The movie also makes us questioned that if there's a possibility that we can be the reason why The Joker was born. Like we could play a role in creating such a monster. Because in the movie we see that The Joker is a product of society. The way society treats people like Arthur Fleck is the source of why The Joker exists. I think the whole point of The Joker's story was never about how The Clown Prince of Crime was born. Whether it's from the comic book's version or the films. It's about a tragic story of how one good man can be so corrupted and broken because of one bad day. "Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?", that's what Arthur Fleck said. My only small issue with the movie is that there's this one scene. It's an iconic scene that we've seen a ton of times. I'm just tired of it. Even though this version is the one that makes more sense compared to the others. Some people might hate that some of the scenes in the film share a lot of similarities to Taxi Driver (1976). But I'm okay with that. I highly recommend that everyone should watch this movie, don't even miss it. Everyone will have a great time experiencing this movie. But don't expect a ton of action and Batman in it. I'm very happy that a comic book movie can get this much discussion and reaction from the audience. Also showing that a comic book story/character can be this deep. This movie is a prime example of how to make a compelling villain.

Joaquin Phoenix raised everyone's expectations with this movie and definitely did justice to the role. If there's one actor who did the Joker role as close as Heath Ledger, then it's him.

Ich sage im Voraus - es ist verstörend - jedoch sind diese Momente gut abgeschätzt, dass es nicht zu einem Abklatsch von einem veränderten "Saw" Part geworden ist. Genialer geschauspielt, man merkt es wurde sich Mühe gegeben und die zahlte sich auch aus.

A very good movie of a villain, as never seen before, shows you a world full of indifference and lack of empathy, to the point that it makes you doubt if it is a real villain.
