Joaquin Phoenix is a genius and will make you cry for his character.  I saw Joker over the weekend and was nervous at first, because I had heard it was dark.  I don’t like dark and I don’t like watching anything like truly feels evil.  This movie though, didn’t feel like that to me.  It felt sad and tragic.  The story of a mentally ill man who fell through the cracks and was bullied all his life for being different.  A man who suffered childhood abuse and then mental illness because of it.  It is in no way a children’s movie- so fair warning on that one.  What I will say is that this movie is a story that should be told, talked about and watched.  If for nothing else than to build compassion for those suffering with mental illness.  Joaquin Phoenix also deserves the Oscar.  Period.
