CRITIC REVIEWS FOR JOKER

What the film wants to say – about mental illness or class divisions in society – is not as interesting as what it accidentally says about whiteness.

“Joker” is a movie that you ignore at your own peril.
Ratings:.3.5/5 Review By: Richard Brody (New Yorker) Visit Site
A movie of a cynicism so vast and pervasive as to render the viewing experience even emptier than its slapdash aesthetic does.
Ratings:.4/5 Review By: Ian Thomas Malone (Ian Thomas Malone) Visit Site
Phoenix’s mesmerizing lead performance is more than enough to carry the narrative past many of its meandering moments.

If you’re a die-hard Batman fan, some things are definitely going to throw you off. If you’re a casual comic fan, the performance is great and all-around it was chilling and tense.
