Joker Rated 15


Dir. Todd Phillips. USA, 2019. 2h 2m. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Marc Maron.

Joaquin Phoenix takes on the role of Gotham City’s most iconic villain in this stylish character study of a man being pushed to his psychological limits by an unforgiving society. Todd Phillips’s Venice Golden Lion Award-winner has more authentic comic book grit than most recent superhero movies. 

‘What a gloriously daring and explosive film Joker is. It’s a tale that’s almost as twisted as the man at its centre, bulging with ideas and pitching towards anarchy.’ ★★★★★ Xan Brooks, The Observer

‘Bold, devastating 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.’ ★★★★★ Terri White, Empire Magazine
