Oscar-nominee Joaquin Phoenix stars in the title role of Todd Phillips’ Joker, alongside Oscar-winner Robert De Niro.
“This is a truly nightmarish vision of late-era capitalism – arguably the best social horror film since Get Out – and Joaquin Phoenix is magnetic in it.” – Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
The film centers around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. During the 1980s, a failed stand-up comedian named Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is driven insane and turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City, becoming a psychopathic murderer. This exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale. (Dir. by Todd Phillips, 2019, USA, 122 mins., Rated R)
