‘Joker’ Review: Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Is Indeed Wild

  ‘Joker’ Review: Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Is Indeed Wild For the first time, the man who laughs gets the star spot all to himself. No going 50-50 with the Caped Crusader, like Jack Nicholson did in Batman; even the late, great Heath Ledger’s Oscar for The Dark Knight was for Best Supporting Actor. In Joker, Joaquin Phoenix digs into the title role, kicks out the jams, and stamps the character with a danger all his own. “Phenomenal” is a puny word to describe his gut-punch performance. Over-the-top? Maybe. But if you want to trade Hollywood pablum for bug-f--- intensity, do it with an actor who knows how to humanize a guy destined for hell.
