Directed by Todd Phillips. With Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy. In Gotham City, mentally troubled comedian Arthur Fleck is disregarded and mistreated by society. 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.
A mediocre attempt at telling the origin story of The Joker. It mostly fails to stick it’s landing, feeling both unnecessary and overwrought.
It made a billion dollars though, so I’m sure we’ll see a sequel.
