Joker

A film by Todd Phillips

Back
Director Todd Phillips introduces us Joker, an original story exploring Arthur Fleck’s universe. Magnificently interpreted by Joaquin Phoenix, Arthur is a man facing society’s cruelty, disregard, and the indifference of a system which allows him to go from vulnerable to depraved. During the day, he’s a clown, and at night he struggles to become a stand-up comic… but he discovers he himself is the joke. Always different from everyone around him, his uncontrollable and inappropriate laughter exposes him to ridicule and violence. Balanced between the edge of reality and madness, one bad decision entails a chain reaction of deadly events.
