The biggest mystery is how a jury led by the director of Zama awards a Golden Lion to this. Must have been under pressure from a bunch of clowns.

I also saw an extremely nihilistic film about chaos, dialectics and the alleged comedy of decay with an intense Phoenix, who actually excels but that weight ('look how good, how iconic') has rested on his shoulders for the entire film. The latter is more of a directing problem than a sin on the part of the actor. The score is extremely present and communicates only one emotion at a time. We can feel it, the misery. And then just embrace them. In the land of the clowns, Joker is king.

controversial and intriguing.

does not go at all how you expect it although you can hardly avoid spoiler in this time.

is it a tribute? partly of course.

But the fact that some 'lines' have already been completely taken over by the net also says a lot.

the quote about you are expected to behave normally while you are seriously ill.

for example . they become / are modern classics .

the dance scenes were a bit too much for me.

but art house lovers will probably love it .

that laugh of Joaquin Phoenix , where you hear the pain of having actually cried so much ( I remember it as a child ) that it physically hurts your throat .'

say that chunk.

but then disguised as a smile, that alone is worth an oscar. I felt his pain.

what also struck me what that DC wanted to do to go a "gritty" dark and realistic direction after the dark knight trilogy.

and failed miserably at that.

but then come back.

This is also dark and gritty and gloomy , but still in its own way .

so surprising and new ( yes new despite the obvious borrowing from taxi driver .

but those who are inspired by one of the greatest film classics of the last century need not be ashamed of it, especially if it is done that way, although De Niro is a very obvious link.

masterpiece .
