Should I watch The Joker?

Or is it so sad and disturbing I’ll be depressed for a week?

I did not like Heath Ledger in his role as “Joker”.

It wasn't that depressing. It reminded me of Taxi Driver.

Because of DeNiro?

Very well done. Great performance from Phoenix, great score.

I couldn't finish it my self. Too depressing

I liked the part with the mechanical penguins.

Pointlessly dreary and violent.

I meant this movie. I guess the title is just “Joker”.

Violent, depressing yet predictable. Incel fantasy. Joaquin’s performance was very good though.

Well, Taxi Driver with a heapin' helpin' of The King of Comedy.

Don’t watch it. You will feel worse afterward.

Why are you asking us, OP? You know you want to watch it, so just watch it. Are you waiting for a certain tally of positives and negatives from posters before you make a decision? Ridiculous. Just watch it. Phoenix won the goddamn Oscar for chrissake. What more do you need to make up your mind?

It's depressing but a good film. Depressing and dark films actually make me feel better but then again I am a weirdo.

What r9 said. Great performances, but ugh. Dreary and depressing.

You'd have more fun putting a knife in a toaster.

I would watch King of Comedy first, you will catch the many references to it in The Joker. Also I noticed a lot of references to older moves from the 70's & 80's. It's depressing but worth seeing.

I thought "Joker" was joyless and deeply mean-spirited. Great performance, sure, but there was nothing pleasurable about the experience of watching this movie.

by Anonymousreply 18Last Saturday at 3:40 AM

If you've seen "The King Of Comedy", you've essentially seen "Joker". I will agree that Phoenix was outstanding, however.
