You have to figire out what is real and what is in his head...the jokes on the audience.... what you see doesn't mean what you get. I've seen it 3 times so far and every time I see it, I notice more and more clues.
Sooo Stupid and boring.
This movie takes control on your mind and soul. Best acting, direction and music . Amazing product of imagination, dedication, hard work, artistic ability and soul searching. Joaquin Phoenix is just wow, Definitely Oscar worthy
Joaquin Phoenix played the role SO well. He depicted a mentally unwell, socially awkward, lost-soul character so amazingly well. Definitely Oscar worthy! A dark movie but very well done
Anyone who does not like this movie does not have a good taste in film.
Most ridiculously made stupid movie ever made
One of the best movies I've ever seen
Why would such a movie be made. Sick
he is brilliant a very special actor
Joaquin Phoenix is in the top of most talented male actors out there. He played insane believably. Wow!
Movie of the year by far. Best actor of the year by far. Loved it !!
Thanks Hollywood and all the actors and actresses for this most incredible movie, that It feels so real and down to earth real aswell. I hope as long as I live that yous keep up with movies like this 1. I enjoyed it so much!
Before I saw this movie I thought Val Kilmer’s Doc Holiday in Tombstone was as good as it could ever get. I was wrong! This performance was a game changer. Best acting I’ve ever seen. Give that man the Oscar!
Too dark. I did not enjoy it. However, it was well done and Joaquin Phoenix deserves a nomination for Best Actor.
the most amazing movie that I have ever seen.
Amazing movie. Can't wait to see it again
the consist laughter and the repetitious plot made this movie a NO for me. I would have left had I been there by myself. Yes the Joker has mental illness. the end.
This movie SUCKS. Slow paced. Minimal action. The stupid laugh after a while gets annoying...his decline to his madness to a certain extent kinda makes sense but the over all of the movie SUCKS. There are way better movies out there than this garbage. Any one who thinks this is the best movie ever made obviously has no taste or can't differentiate an actual good movie from a bad movie.
I was actually physically sickened to my stomach from the psychotic activities that were shown in this movie.
It was an Oscar worthy performance by Joaquin! Wow!
We loved everything about this movie,it was FANTASTIC, Joaquin Phoenix deserves an Oscar, I want to watch it again. Everyone go see this movie you’ll love it.
Excellent movie - really enjoyed the plot and exceptional acting!
Magnificent! Absolutely magnificent! Best movie in ten years, best comic book movie of all time.
wow. Simply wow. I thought, Todd Philips directing....really?? Then I was thinking nobody could beat Heath's take on the joker. But Heath Ledger's take on the character was certainly his own and meant for the Batman movies and deserved his Oscar. But this...this was a whole new level. A few twists and even one twist that was still twisting, was it real or not? I did not like the amount of cigarette smoking, but that was his character and it was the early 80's..so.... Anyway if anyone was going to win an Oscar for playing the same character that someone else did and won an Oscar for, this is it! Don't listen to the nay sayers who wouldn't know a fantastic movie from a porno. This was amazing and you totally feel his descent into his madness and how he gets his clown followers.
I liked how it depicted mental illness and poverty. Joaquin Phoenix is a phenomenal method actor that totally nailed all aspects of the part, differentiated it from all the other Jokers, while paying respect to the Jokers of the past. Bravo!
Good acting by JP...was it acting? about the Jokets background story of an average guy experiencing neverending setbacks in life, which slowly but cumulatively take their toll on ones mental state. After the movie, l felt like l watched an in depth 20/20 documentary on the life of a mentally ill criminal. Not really entertaining. Was hoping more for some comic book fantasy...none here.
Joaquin is superb as Joker. This film is a game changer as far as comic book films are concerned.
face to it, it is a dark story, but movie itself is really really really GOOD no doubt...
Brilliant performance by Joaquin Phoenix!!! And for all those people that said it was a waste of money, thanks for watching it!!!
stupidest movie i have ever seen
Amazingly filmed, great acting.... I just didn't like the plot. After the movie, I felt disappointed.
As I was reading the reviews, comments like depressing and dark surprised me. If these people read the synopsis, it could be decided not to see this movie. Unfortunately, that is what mental illness is all about! Excellent portrayal by JP, absolutely a shoo in for an oscar!
Joaquin Phoenix was absolutely astounding playing this role. Given the issues regarding mental health today, I hope the the general public thinks twice before judging.
the incredible depth portrayed in the characters descent into madness. JP was magnificent.
Great story & Joaquin Phoenix was incredible. Awesome story, stretches the envelope. Music is fantastic.
Omgsh now that’s a movie! Was awesome!
Drug out, boring opera ,wast of money...any other movies available for you to see .word of advice go see it.
Wish I hadn’t bothered
