“When you bring me out can you introduce me as Joker?”
The thrilling, captivating and heart-pounding final trailer of one of the most anticipated movies of the year, Joker, released to excite viewers to the peak.
And now that the movie is in theaters nourishing with every review.
However, not all reviews are the same. While some stated the movie as a masterpiece of its time, others blamed the movie brutally by calling it “dangerous,” “garbage” and “violent.” Despite the division between the critics Joker still managed to make the movie oh-so-exciting for the viewers.
When Dreams are Crushed Don’t We all Become “Violent”?
While Glenn Kenny from RogerEbert.com reviews Joker as nothing but “pernicious garbage,” Daily Designs couldn’t help but dig more into why certain analysts became so unjustifiably harsh?
Joaquin Phoenix character in the movie is a clown for hire who becomes misanthropic after his dream of becoming a stand-up comic shatters. The remarkable performance by Phoenix has been receiving appreciation from critics all around but his character might have spurred a little debate.
The depressed soul portrayed in the movie has been called out for being nihilistic and self-loathing to a point that might create a disturbance in the society.
However, in my opinion, don’t we all become self-loathing at some point in our life?
A point where life seems difficult and everyone seems like a reason behind it. The point where your passion becomes a topic to be joked about and your life-style pulls you to a dark room where “negative thoughts” awaits you.
Negative thoughts, that’s all that Joker had as well.
An Eight-Minute Standing Ovation for Joker!
The standalone movie, which is being strenuously linked with the Batman movies, received an extraordinary response at the Venice Film Festival, which no other DC movie managed to collect.
The movie and the performance are already being nominated by the viewers for the Oscars has earned an eight-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival, making it interesting than ever for others.
While there are many elements of the Batman mythology still the performance, managed to create a different grasping effect on the observers who were once fascinated by the epic performance of today’s Joker’s source, Heath Ledger in the Dark Knight.
The movie is being called as a standalone entity despite the old scary makeup and psychotic cackle portrayal. Which makes it sure that the movie is and will be doing big without the character of Batman.
What Makes Joker Different From Other DC Films?
While reviewing the most talked about movie in town, critics have managed to not steal the ‘stand-alone’ characteristic of the movie. Unlike the less enthusiastic yet highly commercialized movies like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or Suicide Squad, Joker is a low budget production taking inspiration from classic Scorsese.
Making a clear distance from the modern comic- book genre, Joker has managed to grab the audience’s attention by portraying character study in all its cinematic glory.
The grappling, thematically ambitious, dark and voyage Joker is in waiting to leave its impression in the minds of audiences heading towards the theaters near them.
