Joker rocks

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.
