Austin Montgomery’s review published on Letterboxd:
This definitely isn’t your run of the mill comic book movie. Joaquin Phoenix delivers the broken and dark story of the infamous villain Joker which we all know and love. It is very dark and genuine showing the systematic oppression of the real world and being different. Phoenix showed a man crumble into a monster after society suffocated him. He delivers a powerful performance through a crazy psychological adventure. The visuals are outstanding and is very intense. The flow of the movie matched perfectly. The Oscar nominations this movie received are well deserved.
