Anuddercast Movie Review – Joker

by | Oct 4, 2019 | Entertainment News, Movie Reviews

This was a fucking masterpiece plain and simple.

If you’re looking for an over the top character, this isn’t your film.
If you’re looking for a comic book film as we’ve become accustomed to, this isn’t your film.
This isn’t ‘Avengers: Endgame’, this is ‘Taxi Driver’ meets ‘King Of Comedy’ meets ‘Falling Down’ splattered with an independent film tone right from the opening shot of the 1970’s Warner Bros. logo.

This is a film about a man devolving into madness; a man becoming sinister and settling in to the person he always struggled not to be.

Does Joaquin Phoenix have the cool ‘Why so serious?” kind of delivery that we loved from Heath Ledger?
No – and he’s not trying to – this film is not trying to.

Instead he has the Jack Torrence slow progression into an incredibly demented man who believes in his cause; a man who believes he is just and taking a stand against the wrongs of the world even though he’s a greater demon than everything that made him what he is.

Every great villain is the hero of his own story.

This is a character study of a madman deep in the throes of psychopathy.

When it’s over, you’ll understand why there’s so much controversy surrounding the portrayal of the character in the times we find ourselves in, but film is supposed to present uncomfortable ideas and demand they be confronted.

This is the definitive Joker.
This is the only version that ever sheds great amounts of light on the character and lets you understand that there’s no salvation for him.

While the thought of a Batman confronting this character in the tone that this film set is beyond the greatest nerd dream, I hope it never happens.

This needs to stand alone as what it is.

So I eventually landed on this podcast today. It's the story of the disappearance and clear murder of Kristin Smart in 1996. Now, it's rather infuriating because it's abundantly clear who killed her, but...

Shamokin Must Be a MAGICAL Place to Live

This was JUST brought to my attention last night, but you may have seen it before. Imagine a town so bereft of anything culturally relevant, that a Dunkin' DoNITS being temporarily closed could cause this...
