David Rooney – The Hollywood Reporter has equally penned that this amusingly atmospheric movie sees Joaquin bringing pathos to a tragically subjugated character, adding that there’s a bubbling psychosis in the way at which the part is played – and that this neo-noir psychological character stud is arguably the best Batman Adjacent film since The Dark Knight which popularly witnessed Heath leger won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor last year.

Likewise, Jim Vejvoda – The IGN Critic wrote: “Drawing its style and spirit of the 70’s and 80’s film like the Taxi Driver, Dog Day Afternoon, The King of Comedy, and A Clockwork Orange, Director Phillip’s Joker presents a Gotham City that is obviously a stand-in for the hellish New York City of the Era.”
Mark Hughes, a Forbes Writer brands Joker as one of the best films in 2019, labeling Phoenix’s performance ‘fearless and stunning in its emotional depth and physicality’
“Joaquin delivers a tour de force and Joker isn’t just an awesome comic book movie, but also an awesome movie period,” Jim added.
