Completely subverting the big-screen comic-book adaptation Joaquin Phoenix gives one of the performances of the year in Joker.

The year is 1981  and the city is in the midst of a crisis. garbage is pilling-up on the streets, the divide between rich and poor is growing, health is being cut and people are getting angry.  Arthur Fleck, clown for hire and aspiring stand-up comedian, spends his time entertaining others,  visiting his psychologist and caring for his frail mother (Frances Conroy). When circumstances cause him to lose his job, Arthur begins a downward spiral that is fueled by the unkindness and mockery of others until a chance meeting with a neighbour (Zazie Beetz) offers a glimmer of hope for the wannabee comic.

Giving a killer performance as a man on the edge , Phoenix and director  Todd Phillips' vision pay homage  to the gritty  early films of  Martin Scorsese while crafting  a film  for the  modern age which  also cleverly  references the performer's own  unusual career trajectory, delivering  what is  bound  to become  the  year's  most discussed  films.

"This is truly a nightmarish vision of late-era capitalism - arguably the best social horror film since Get Out - and Joaquin Phoenix is magnetic in it."  - Time Out

"Having brazenly plundered the films of Scorsese, Phillips fashions stolen ingredients  into something new, so that what began as a gleeful cosplay session turns progressively more dangerous -  and somehow more relevant, too." - Guardian

"Joker is a thunderously powerful character study of a man with a mental illness, and a  ferocious indictment of a society that doesn't treat the mentally ill with compassion." - Daily Mail

"Like the best of the new Hollywood classics it references, this is a film that  exhilarates and unsettles while having something to say about today ."  - Financial Times

"One of the true masterpieces of the superhero cinema, and one of the 2019's  greatest achievements ." - Forbes

"Bold, devasting and utterly beautiful, Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix have not just  reimagined one of the most iconic villains in cinema history, but reimagined the comic book movie itself." - Empire

Winner: Golden Lion Venice Film Festival
