Capernaum.

And here I am sitting in a warm house, on a comfy sofa, warm cup of coffee and a hot lunch. It's hard to really fathom how rough some have it.

That little kid is a superstar in the making though.

The Joker.

I went in open-minded, thinking I could enjoy this given it’s not a superhero film per se. Plus it can stand alone and I don’t need to be a fan of the universe or knowledgable about it.

It was average at best. Joaquin’s performance was nothing special and was helped by being caked in makeup all the time.

It kept me entertained however it didn’t generate any reaction from me whatsoever, no laughter, no empathy, etc.

6/10

Compared against the Capernaum masterpiece that I saw earlier that day it really is garbage.

EDIT: Sorry Vurt, just my opinion mate :tu:

Let's see if I change my opinion in the coming days. I'm still thinking about it which is always a good sign.

Agreed.

One thing I may have missed, why did the clerk at the hospital allow him access to his mums records? I know he stole them in the end but prior to that the clerk was reading them to Mr Joker.

he asked him (and everyone he met) to call him "joker" after the clip of him on tv.
the clerk called him "mr joker" imo as a nod to harley who always calls him mr j! and of course a clerk will always address you as mr or miss anyway.

Ok, you got me. The little guy trying to get out while his mate was dead on the floor was funny.

I think you misunderstood me. Ignore the Mr bit, I was just using another way to say Joker. I've forgotten his name so I'll now call him Joaquin.

Joaquin went to the hospital to ask about his mums psychiatric records and the clerk gladly went and got them, read them to him, before saying no you can't have these. That's a bit of an invasion of privacy isn't it. Or is this one of those scenes you're not meant to question in the name of entertainment?

Nightmare (mildly interesting but basically not very good), Sweet Sixteen (not bad), Mr. Hoover and I (pretty good), and Sweet Country (good).
