New Delhi:

Will Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker set another par to the Crown prince of Crime after Heath Ledger’s exceptional performance in 'The Dark Knight'? Critics are saying yes! After getting 8 minutes long standing-ovation, the Todd Phillips movie is once again set to make all movie-goers give another round of standing ovation if we are to go by the reviews and ratings. With an astounding 9.4 ratings by IMDb and 77% on Rotten Tomatoes, the psychological thriller could as well be one of Phoenix’s best performance.

Joaquin Phoenix is astonishing as a mentally ill geek who becomes the killer-clown Joker in Todd Phillips' neo-'Taxi Driver' knockout: the rare comic-book movie that expresses what's happening in the real world-Owen Gleiberman from Variety.

"Joker" is on the surface the origin of a supervillain but more subtly an exploration of empathy and the personal impact of a society devoid of it- Brian Truitt- from USA Today

Min-sik Yoon- Korea Herald-There are films that push you to the limit, have you on the edge, and then there's Joker, starring the brilliance of Joaquin Phoenix.

Anthony Lane - New Yorker The strenuous effort of Phoenix's performance that it becomes exhausting to behold. Get a load of me, he seems to say, and the load is almost too much to bear.

Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown and an even more unsuccessful stand-up comedian. As he attempts to simply exist in a broken-down and beaten-up Gotham City, a sequence of violent events will lead to a revolt in the city and the birth of the Joker-Terry White from Empire giving a full 5 out of 5.

Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker hit the big screen on October 2.
