I am not a lover of Phoenix's work but I think this may be the best he will ever due, worthy of an award?

It's NOT just me. Things ARE getting weirder out there. The bellicose funny haired political demagogues of the world WILL get what they deserve. Rise Up and Resist! Clown riot anyone?

I was hoping for a better movie based on all the hype. Phoenix should never have been nominated for Best Actor.

The actor of the joker did an excellent job but I felt this movie was more of an art type of production and not so much as a block buster one. During the movie I felt the despair of the joker which was done very well but I believe the director went over board with it where I started to loose interest in the film. I do not believe it lived up to all the hype made about the movie.

I thought this was going to be a Batman vs Joker movie but was I ever wrong. This is an incredibly well produced, directed and performed movie. JP definitely deserved the Best Actor Oscar. I was mesmerized from beginning to end. You've got to watch this.

Tough to watch at times but oh boy was it beautifully done. Wonderful cinematography, a terrific score, a powerful performance from Joaquin Phoenix, some tough questions asked... just wow. This may be the most realistic but still true-to-character portrayal of the Joker I've seen yet.

Martin Scorsese famously characterized superhero movies as being more like amusement park rides than real movies. This movie was more like the scariest house of horrors you can imagine. This is as fine a movie about one person's mental collapse as I can remember. If it doesn't win half a dozen Oscars, it will be a crime.

Very well made movie. It is like V for Vendetta (2005) meets Money Monster (2016).

Disturbing, riveting movie. Joaquin Phoenix is absolutely Brilliant. I watched it none stop beginning to end. Once was enough.

This is not another Batman movie. It is also not a typical DC action movie. You will be disappointed if that is what you are expecting. This was one man's slow journey down the very deep rabbit hole of his own mind.

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

Just a guy with mental issues killing people that don't like him or make fun of him, period.
