I’m late to this party. I finally saw Joker. Wow. Powerful movie. It really puts you through the wringer. Great. How does Joachim Phoenix not win the Oscar? For a comic book movie, it struck me as being very realistic. My problem with comic book movies is they are unbelievable. Joker reminds me more of Scorcese’s Taxi Driver than a comic book movie. The Oscar nomination for the director Todd Phillips is well deserved.
