    A much smaller scope than Cold War, but just as magnificent.

    It's CLIMAX with a happy ending.

    ★★★★

    Yes, it is a more dangerous film than we want in theaters, but only because it is a more reflective mirror than we tend to bargain for in a cinematic escape. Funny how the more damning a film is of society, the more damning society will be of it.

    Joker triumphs in so many ways, but my biggest criticism is of a fatal flaw -- the more realistic and essential this character is portrayed, the more the DC universe is distracting baggage.

    ★★★★

    I came into this with absolutely no history of watching Mr. Rogers, but the focus here is really on mental health, of the main journalist protagonist and of us, the collective audience. There are frequent moments of genuine empathy and artistry -- and maybe the half a star is the cultural context I'm missing.
