Joker is a masterpiece. But a masterpiece that will make you suffer, think, and cry. Don’t expect thousands of guns and bullets. This is a psychological portrait of one of the most mysterious villains of all.
Joaquin Phoenix’s performance is breathtaking. The cinematography is outstanding and the music is superb (a whole cello score with almost only two notes: D and F).
Joker is NOT a film for children. I’m a mother of three and we always watch great movies & masterpieces together on our cinema projector (our hero is Woody Allen), but the movie Joker is too dark and twisted for children.
Fasten your seat belts and prepare yourself for a painful yet fascinating psychological (and social) journey.
