Joker ★★

It's like if Darren Aronofsky directed the King of Comedy remake, but without any of the visual flair, and then studio-mandated edits forced them to explain the themes over and over.

Since the movie follows exactly every single plot beat you could possibly expect but does so with a great performance by Mr. Phoenix, I was willing to give this a 2.5, but those last ten-ish minutes where there were like six Final Shot moments in a row grated me just enough to say I kinda hated it.
