Where did the Joker come from? What's up with the clown schtick? Is his mom named Martha? All these questions and more are answered definitively by director Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix, and it only takes two ponderous hours.
Phillips and Silver have no interest in how [Arthur] can rid himself of the clutter that corrupts his existence. They're only interested in chaos; however, they don't elevate the chaos into a meaningful narrative, they pander to the audience with it.
Joker is a visual feast about mental illness, the crumbling of an unstable economic system, and toxic masculinity that thinks it has something groundbreaking to add to the comic book universe, but merely adds an obtuse reflection.
