The greatest revelation of the year, without doubt, is Joker.
Being a DC and low-budget movie, few expected it to became the phenomenon it did. Top that with an R-Rating and things would’ve seemed logic.
But… surprise, surprise! It’s the first R-Rated movie in the history to cross the $1 Billion mark and also with the lowest budget in the highly exclusive $1B club. China is also a big market, yet Joker was banned over there, making these figures even more impressive.
I’ve seen it at the theaters and enjoyed it. Already in one of the first scenes (the one on the buss) it was revealed to me that Jaquin Phoenix IS a GREAT ACTOR. He has through this movie a great impact.
I think they did the things the way they did for the fans to speculate and to leave all doors open for, what I hope will become, more stories about the great DC villain. The ball is in your half, Warner, WE WANT MORE!!
