    I really loved Heath Ledger’s performance as the Joker but wow this looks amazing.

    I read the script summary for this a few months ago. I think it's going to be VERY polarizing. Most likely, film critics will like it but the GA will hate it. Just my assumption. Personally, I can't wait to see it.

    Just seen that Joker has won the Golden Lion award at the Venice Festival. Is this really going to be that much of a sleeper hit (maybe I just wasn’t paying attention originally)?

    I wouldn't call a movie that is expected to have somewhere close to a $100M opening a sleeper hit. I think the fact that it is a prestige movie is the bigger surprise.

    I thought the movie was incredible. A mesmerizing performance from Phoenix. Highly recommend checking this one out, but its very very dark and goes pretty deep. I expect this to stick around through awards season whether its just Joaquin or if the film sticks around as well. This one sits with you for a bit folks!

    Saw it yesterday and this movie was amazing! It's kind of like a Breaking Bad for the Joker in that you get to watch the character transform over time. I loved it and highly recommend people to see it!

    I forgot to add that this is a very nice looking film. Also I rarely see movies twice in the theater but I will definitely be seeing this again soon.

    I thought when this was initially announced this would be the dumbest, edgiest thing ever. I'm so glad to be wrong because I definitely think Joaquin Phoenix will be getting an Oscar nod for his performance. Absolutely brilliant.

    Just funny how much negative publicity it's been getting. I can understand why some would freak out, but in my view the film doesn't endorse or promote violence. Either way, a phenomenal film. Definitely one of the best of 2019, with one of the best performances of the year too. Absolutely loved it and am looking forward to seeing it again.
