Director Todd Phillips “Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night…but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.

"Joker" tells the tale of the transformation (birth) of Arthur Fleck into the iconic Joker. Joker sums up the movie when he says " What do you get when you cross a mentally ill loner with a society which abandons him and treats him like trash? You get what you f-cking deserve.". The movie makes considerable social comment on the teatment of societies minorities.
A superb nuanced performance by Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) elevates this character driven script into a memorable movie. Robert Di Nero (Murray Franklin), as always, gives a solid performance as a manipulative talk show host. Powerful character portrayals carry this movie.
"Joker" was shot and directed to emphasis Arthur Fleck's tortured and tormented metamorphosis into the Joker. Ample close-ups highligh Arthur Fleck's and Joker's inner turmoil (facial contortions display his 'madness'). The retreating long shots emphasised his isolation. His stance reflecting his feelings of hopelessness.
The 4K disc gave the best image colour and sharpness with the least noise. However, I was not disappointed with the 2K (upscaled) version.
A good movie, perhaps not the way I envisioned the emergence of the Joker, but perfectly plausible.
Fabulous journey into the disturbed mind of a psychopath.
Story trickery for the viewer at many turns.
The 4K boasting excellent technical merit with some explosive scenes really letting the Atmos soundtrack display it's stuff - especially the "station scene".
The soundtrack had some memorable and totally relevant highlights apart from the immersive, strings based score. For me, when Cream's White Room played.
Disturbing, sad, creepy and memorable.
