Joker (2019)

Joker: Expectations were riding high on this character, with references to the performances of Heath Ledger and the legendary Jack Nicholson.

Joaquin Phoenix makes the character his own from the very beginning, holding a mirror to society’s perception and treatment of mental illness, physical symptoms of injury or just being vulnerable.

As the story progresses, we see what motivated him to become the Joker, what were his feelings and emotions that led him to rely on anarchy as a coping mechanism.

Not only is it a commentary on the breakdown of society, but a true reflection of the current scenario in many countries that pride themselves on their supremacy.

A disturbing yet insightful watch.

4/5
