Just got out of JOKER. Absolutely incredible movie. Best of the year, one of the best of the decade, possibly the best comic book movie ever. I am not kidding. It's one of the most complex and multilayered movies of its type, and it doesn't go where you'd expect.
JOKER makes all other comic book movies obsolete. It makes Marvel capeshit look like the manbaby swill that it is and even surpasses the Nolan Batman trilogy. No one will ever praise Heath Ledger's Joker again; Joaquin Phoenix outclasses him on every level.
JOKER succeeds because it's a HUMAN movie. It eschews the CGI of capeshit and the overwrought dialogue of Nolan for a story with actual people. My eyes went wide not once, but twice at two of the film's pivotal plot twists.
The character of Joker is a good, ambivalent character in the tradition of the Coen brothers' films. By the end of the film, you won't empathize with him at all; he's a horrible person. But you also won't hate him. His enemies are also horrible people.
Capeshit manbabies and liberal corporate shills will HATE JOKER because it doesn't tickle their indignation bone. It's not here to sell you something. It's not here to provide some hackneyed moral about how white men are evil. It's just a good character study.
As an aside, all those tittering dum-dums who lauded crap like THE LAST JEDI for "subverting" audience expectations? Nah, that's just your excuse for sucking. JOKER is how you subvert an existing franchise in a fun and clever way: take out the fluff, leave the characters.
JOKER is one of those movies where having it spoiled won't change the emotional impact. In other words, it's a good movie. It would hit just as hard even if I knew all the plot twists beforehand.
