Joker

Crime Drama Thriller


 

The origin story behind Joker, a failed comedian who transforms into the most notorious criminal in Gotham City.

You know those films that stay with you long after you've watched it? Where you can recount how you felt while watching it for the first time years later? This is one of them. It's a deeply affecting masterpiece. Expertly laboured, darkly intelligent, and more like classic cinema than a comic book movie. In parts, you will feel uncomfortable - here is a character so downtrodden by society and life it seeps into your heart and weighs it down. Prepare to be disturbed, moved, and shocked, but ultimately mesmerised. No joke.
