    You’re really good at making this boring. Also, nice job wasting Joaquins talent on horrible editors. Could have been an iconic film.

        If Todd or Joaquin don't get Oscar nominations or actually win, then there is something seriously wrong with Hollywood.

                        I saw this with my 14 year old son, the first words out of his mouth were how "uncomfortable" he was during the entire movie....I told him "That is what ART is supposed to do!"

                                      Anyone back here to rewatch this after seeing Sardonicast’s half assed review on Joker?

                                      It legitimately bugged me how lazy and lacking these guys were.

                                            The cinematography of this movie was EVERYTHING! So many utterly chilling shots where all the elements worked together perfectly

                                              We’re all the scenes with the girl (besides the elevator and him coming into her apartment) his imagination?

                                                Y'all, Be really honest. Is this Heath Ledger good? I feel like it just might be, but we won't give Joaquin the credit because Heath Ledger passed and he was the best joker we had until that time. Also in the Dark Knight, we really only saw clips of Joker, not Joker as the whole subject. I feel like it might be but idk

                                                  Brilliant film, so inspirational. Joaquin is totally skeletal, haven’t laughed that much since I watched the comedy classic, The Shining.

                                                                                                I never realized that Joker was squeezing the bulb for the flower in that one scene, I just thought he was grabbing his ribs in pain...very intriguing, love that deeper meaning in it.
