A movie that borders on genius-repellant, dark, terrifying, disgusting, brilliant and unforgettable. ” Observer
See Joaquin Phoenix is his Oscar-winning role in JOKER, alongside Robert De Niro, and directed, produced and co-written by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips. This infamous central character gives a chillingly plausible origin story that serves as a brilliant showcase for its star – and a dark evolution for comics-inspired cinema.
JOKER centres around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
Forms part of our mini-festival, PHOENIX RISING – a cinematic tribute to River & Joaquin Phoenix.
