Joker is not what I’d call a fun watch but it is one of those films that you’re glad you’ve seen once you’ve seen it. It’s a visually impressive and artistically cohesive work that feels very accomplished and creatively complete. It could be the best superhero genre film that I’ve ever seen. (I’d probably have to rewatch Batman Beings to confirm that... but my hunch is that Joker takes the top slot). It’s not an uplifting story in any way, but it’s definitely thought provoking.
