‘Joker’ (2019) Movie Review: The Best 2019 Movie

Magnífica, satírica e incñómoda

Joker is a movie directed by Todd Phillips starring Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro and Frances Conroy.

The most awaited movie of the year leads us to a bitter social denouncement in which no one is left standing, that merges satire and flight of fancy. A kick in the mouth for movies about super heroes and the industry.

Joker is the movie of the year, no matter what they say, and mentioning Joaquin Phoenix as an Oscar winner is no longer a pipe dream nor is this movie a clear-cut candidate for the award that, I am afraid, will not receive it (yes, I take a gamble).

Arthur Fleck is a comedian (a clown) with a disreputable life that leads him to madness…(maybe not so much). He is considerably pissed off with society and will make someone pay.

About the Movie

Very, very good. Crude, cruel, an uncomfortable fusion of extremes that we love. Where is the touch of violence that grazes happiness? We aren´t going to underline the talent of this actor who should win the Oscar and, if it were not because he has the same role as another Oscar winner… we doubt it.

When it premiered, people were already afraid of it, and now, they fear it even more because this is a film that tells us that in the society of the “selfies”, nobody is really happy and the paradox forms part of our existence and today we feel happy and sad and deep down, we are all a little manic-depressives.

An Eighties film from the beginning to the end (as it should be, we applaud it). This is a movie that reflects the paradox of happiness in each frame and the inconsistency of this model, which never falls, remains agonizing in a paradox that never holds up.

Our Opinion

Movie of the year.

A kick to society that is well deserved.
