A look at Warner and Todd Phillips: JOKER

Yesterday I had the …well pleasure of watching the new JOKER Movie

Let me saying DAMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN! I would have reviewed it straightway, however, I needed some time to process what I saw :/  but anyway on with the show.  (Side effects may include revolting against the establishment)

If you have been living under a rock the past few months(apologies if you have ) JOKER IS OUT! Now don’t be deterred we all know DC s Cinematic universe  is let us say  not very well done in my opinion and anyone that’s ever read a comic book but this ones  how you say Different it’s the new kid on the block and he’s ..Quite the JOKER

Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as The Joker.

The world of Arthur Flek is not a kind world and in watching  the movie I would find myself  feeling very uncomfortable at times mainly because  I’m sure many people have experienced something as bad or similar  to Arthurs life all people want is to be accepted for who and what they are which is great however in old-timey  Gotham its not the case this man goes through  trials and tribulations with little to no success and its just heart wrenching  to watch you find yourself feeling terrible  for this man that everyone has just given up on . 

Todd Phillips and  Joaquin Phoenix’s  Joker is  chillingly gritty comic  movie adaptation Added to all this Arthur is not well in the head probably due to his childhood and his parent/ parents being a tad unhinged  which is kind of obvious given the origin story .  the laugh will stick with you after

Joaquin Pheonix ‘s performance as JOKER is incredible he fully gets into character for this role and he does not disappoint it was hard for me to picture him as anything other than the joker even off-camera which I think is a great achievement in its own right!I know that everyone is always saying Heath Ledgers Joker character from yesteryear is  the best which it is HEATH Is the OG, this version of the joker shouldn’t even be compared with them its great in its own right  even from the trailer It didn’t reveal too much let people anticipate  it which is what you want rather than seeing all the best bits in the trailer and basically knowing everything that happens,

BOTH INCREDIBLE

 Honestly if you haven’t seen it go see it I am still processing what I saw  that laugh will stick with you  HAHAHA  HAHAHA   it’s a fantastic movie  and I really hope they use it to reboot the batman series as it would be a great opening  for it   (
