Notes: 
Storyline Heading
An original standalone origin story of the iconic villain not seen before on the big screen, it's a gritty character study of Arthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society, and a broader cautionary tale.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Drama Thriller - While based on and centered around Batman's most famous villain, this is not a traditional comic book movie but a very dark, violent, disturbing psychological thriller with language, bloody violence, and mature subject matter and absolutely not for kids. Joaquin Phoenix fans will enjoy as this is a major showcase with all other actors secondary.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good This is a disturbing film, a journey into the heart of a damaged man's psychosis. In many ways, it's more of a horror film than an action/adventure offering. Within this genre, there has never been anything quite like it.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The violence in this movie means to shock, and it does. Fleck's alienation in the early scenes evokes Travis Bickle's, but this movie is too chicken-livered to give Fleck Bickle's racism, although it depicts him mostly getting hassled by people of color in the first third.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...is at times predictable and too familiar given the source material, yet it splendidly captures the essence of the iconic bad guy as a frighteningly unreliable narrator in the movie's best moments. ...Phoenix puts a human face on colorful bedlam in a truly chilling turn for Phillips' "Joker," an imperfect albeit thought-provoking project that relishes the discomfort it causes.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average ...a Punishingly Self-Serious Mishmash of Borrowed Parts. When he finally dons the iconic white makeup and goes full psycho, there's no pleasurable charge since no real narrative or emotional groundwork has been laid.
