    ★★★★

    Sleek and nasty, an extra half point added for that maddeningly tense blood corridor chase and all the non-CGI blood.

    Joker

    ★★★★½

    Grand Bargain: Joker is both a genius work of art, AND should be banned from public viewing.

    Joker is a total accident, devoid of any depth of analysis, held captive to the same sterile cultural dynamic as the rest of us wretches, but manages to totally transcend its genre not through brilliance or insight, but by merely depicting the essential reality of What It Means to Live Now for a certain segment of the population. That's honestly sort of dangerous! It's like a freaking birthday clown with a gun tucked in his pants!
