Well I didn't have a ny great desire to see this but I ended up going with my daughter, and I'm very glad I did.

A superbly made film. The most convincing and believable (for a given amount of believable) representation of the Joker so far on film. Huge commitment from Phoenix.

I loved the unreliable narration and the care they took to avoid any semblance of sympathy for the main character while keeping his story utterly compelling.

Lovely tips to batman mythology not rammed down throats.

I'm undecided if I like it more than Logan. On balance, probably. It's certainly NOT a "superhero" film in any way. But it is a very, very good film.

Wow.
Based on the trailer I had no inclination to see it at all. It seemed very un-batverse.

Oh it is. Very. But that’s fine. It is it’s own film. I would definitely say get over any trailer anxiety and see it.

I just watched this movie. It's a scary movie. Not about superheroes. About what society can do with a person and how a person can respond to this society. This is an Oscar movie...
