Most days, Arthur Fleck is bullied in public as he works as a clown-for-hire, but his slow descent into madness is hurried along by his mother's failing health, their strained connection with the rich Wayne family, and his failed comedy career.

The worst movie of 2019. When I heard that they are coming with a slightly different Joker. The only one that I am familiar with, is the Christopher Nolan Joker , which I loved by the way.This movie was not only offensive to all superheros movies , but extremely shallow to be taken seriously as a drama . I can picture the director petting himself in the back, because he is so edgy for picking up themes that are popular with the young people. Lets not worry about Joker character and how complex he is supposed to be, instead we make a social commentary and put or character in ridiculous situations just to prove out point.

If you like Phoenix then you'll like the movie. He is mesmerizing, draws you into his character and takes you on an emotional ride. His body language is wow! I liked the movie and enjoyed the twist/reveal at the end ...... wish they had extended it a bit more.

Difficult to rate--totally unrealistic but good acting---you can live without seeing it.

Wow! An incredibly dark movie that proved very difficult to rate. Phoenix was amazing in his role. A movie not for the faint of heart.

Kudos to lead actor for his performance. Movie was too dark, too depressing. For me this is not what a movie should be unless it is a documentary.

Didn't read any reviews before watching but understood it had good reviews. Thought I would have an enjoyable viewing but not sure I would have wanted to watch this if I knew what to expect. Maybe the most depressing movie I've ever seen.

I'm giving this movie 1.5 stars.
This movie is not for the faint of heart. A VERY dark movie. There are some very violent moments where it was difficult to watch.
Joaquin Pheonix did an amazing job on this origin story for Joker.
For those who have seen American Horror story, Frances Conroy plays Penny Fleck.

A very deep and disturbing interpretation about how The Joker became The Joker. Of course, Pheonix did an excellent job. This type of movie is right up his alley. It was also written with him in mind for the lead role.
I like how the alley scene was included in the movie when Bruce Wayne's dad gets killed.

I did not care for this movie. Too much violence and killing. Parts of it I did not understand. Waste of time.

This is a very grim movie about mental illness. There’s nothing fun and very little that’s entertaining. For the most part I felt uncomfortable while watching. That’s not necessarily a bad thing but given the Batman association I was expecting something a bit lighter. This is not a comic book superhero romp and definitely not for kids. I’m not sure that I recommend it though it was well done.

For my whole life, I didn't know if I even really existed. But I do, and people are starting to notice.

The worst part of having a mental illness is people expect you to behave as if you don't.

Arthur Fleck: I killed those guys because they were awful. Everybody is awful these days. It's enough to make anyone crazy.
