So uh...yeah. Good stuff. This movie was definitely directed by David Lynch.
Something I will have to come back to after some thought, but definitely some good stuff in there about memory and betrayal
This movie is so close to becoming something cool. I feel a slight bit of the heightened comic book style would have actually made the darkness pop and really help nail this serious and dark message.
Instead, the music and direction spend every second of the runtime screaming "THIS IS A SERIOUS AND DARK MESSAGE."
But the last act is really cool and Phoenix becomes a fun different Joker that still feels just enough like the classic villain.
So yeah, good effort, but someone should ask the director and composer why they're so serious.
