In Gotham City, mentally troubled comedian Arthur Fleck is disregarded and mistreated by society. He then embarks on a downward spiral of revolution and bloody crime. This path brings him face-to-face with his alter-ego: the Joker.
Whether he's playing a desperate alcoholic in need of acceptance, a haughty Roman emperor, or a folk legend Joaquin Phoenix carries with him undeniable stage-presence and a subtle command of emotional expression. That and he has an awesome name.
The anti-hero movie at its most extreme: watch these morally bankrupt, mentally unsound, and somehow highly watchable protagonists wreak all the havoc you wish you could, but know you can't. Like Grand Theft Auto in movie format!
