Director and co-writer Todd Phillip‘s (War Dogs) highly-anticipated psychological thriller stars Joaquin Phoenix (You Were Never Really HereThe Master) as Arthur Fleck, a failed stand-up comedian in 1980s Gotham City. Fleck turns to a life of crime and chaos in Gotham City and slowly rises to become the frightening titular legend. Working both as a cautionary tale and a visceral, new-take on a legendary villain, Joker screened at the Venice Film Festival to critical adoration, notably for Joaquin Phoenix‘s immensely measured and terrifying portrayal of a man disregarded by society.
