Reviews:
"[A] grippingly atmospheric supervillain origin story....What's most noteworthy about this gritty entry in the DC canon and the lead actor's sensational performance is the pathos he brings to a pathetically disenfranchised character..." - 08/31/2019 Hollywood Reporter


“[JOKER is] Todd Phillips’ hypnotically perverse, ghoulishly grippingly urban-nightmare comic fantasia..." - 08/31/2019 Variety


"If you live to see Joaquin Phoenix go to performing extremes like nobody’s business, this movie really is the apotheosis of that." - 08/31/2019 RogerEbert.com


5 stars out of 5 -- "As Arthur/Joker, Joaquin Phoenix is astonishing. Phillips has said he had a picture of the actor above his screen when writing the script and it’s a belief that has paid off." - 08/31/2019 Empire


"Phoenix is stunning in the role....He feels possessed by the part, communing with Arthur’s hurt and rage and raw vulnerability even as he falls deeper into whatever kind of spiders-in-the-brain psychosis the willful halting of his meds lets in." - 09/10/2019 Entertainment Weekly


4.5 stars out of 5 -- "In JOKER, Joaquin Phoenix digs into the title role, kicks out the jams, and stamps the character with a danger all his own. 'Phenomenal' is a puny word to describe his gut-punch performance." - 09/30/2019 Rolling Stone


"With impressive skill and commitment, the director and his star, Joaquin Phoenix, reverse the moral logic of the origin story, replacing its sense of emergent order with a dark plunge into alienation and chaos." - 10/01/2019 Los Angeles Times


"Almost inhumanly gaunt, skin pulled tightly over the bony ridges of his spine and ribcage, Phoenix offers a theatricality more alien, and more accidental, than the character usually possesses." - 10/03/2019 A.V. Club


"The film strove to be a statement for our times, though was at its best when locked on to the committed intensity of Phoenix’s turn as God’s Lonely Clown." - 12/23/2019 Uncut
