Joker - review #31
Joker tells us the originstory from arthur fleck, who becomes later the psycho Joker.
I was really surprised how good the movie Joker is. It is more then a dc comic movie. It is a movie about a guy, who wants to be a entertainment clown, but the people in gotham city discrimante and bullied him, that brings him face to face his alter-ego : the Joker.
I love many soundtracks in movies, but the soundtrack of Joker was one of the best, that I hear in the cinema. The soundtrack of joker has a great atmosphere. You can symphatizise with the main character, because of the great emotional and dark soundtrack.
The new interpretation of the character Joker is very realistic. It is the story of a guy, who have problems with his illness to become a part of the society. Director todd phillips create a amazing character. Joaquin phoenix played arthur fleck phenomenal. He brings the emotions from his character in a new version out. The supporting character from zazie beatz (Sophie dumond) is really interesting. She brings the good side from arthur fleck out. Robert de niro portrayed a convincing tv moderator. His character have a really bad character property. Brett cullen had a solid performance as thomas wayne, who played a different father from bruce wayne.
Arthur lives with his mom Penny fleck (francis conroy) and he thinks that she is his only good thing in his life. I liked the chemistry between Arthur and his mom, because they showed up a realistic situation.
The colorgrading in Joker are amazing. Many shots are very dark, threatful and brings a sadly feeling for the audience.
When I watched the movie in the cinema I had the entire time a broken feeling, because I was very surprised how risky Joker is. Joker has extremely realistic emotion, like grief, rage, frustation or fear. The emotions from Arthur fleck are in the first half of the movie pitiable and in the second half liberating. Arthur finds a way how he handle his problems, because he is a outsider and no one hears him.
I was also very shocked how current arthurs situation is. Many peoples search their position in the life. It is very difficult for many people to act like a normal guy.
