Joker is a psychological thriller about an odd man named Arthur Fleck who becomes a menace to society.
Joker revolves around the one and only Joker from the iconic Batman comic book story. However, this film is obviously not about Batman; the caped crusader only made a small appearance as Bruce Wayne when he was a child. Joaquin Phoenix does an extraordinary job of bringing a new dimension to the Joker mythos and and tells this same old story in a new and invigorating way. In this story we see an odd, innocent fellow transform into a menace to society.
