    Better? Dude all the footage that was released from this film is dreadful, famously dreadful. (I really wish it was good though)

    I've viewed 1 batman comic ever, "The Killing Joke". Iirc, that particular comic has a back story about a sad sack comedian that looks very similar.

    No, it is awesome.

    It is also hard to find but available.

    I have seen part of it.

    A fantastic comedy.

    IGN gets paid to give high scores, they are not necessarily the best to get an unbiased opinion/ review from.

    If you’ve seen Safe or Haynes’ Karen Carpenter movie, we had to know this was going to be off the standard grid by a mile or so. I’m optimistic!

    Joaquin Phoenix Explains Why His 'Joker' Laugh Is "Something That's Almost Painful"

    The actor lost 52 pounds for the part, fully inhabiting his own version of the character, sparking strong Oscar buzz on the Lido.

    Joaquin Phoenix’s long-anticipated Joker has finally arrived. The three-time Academy Award nominated actor stars in the DC Comics origins story, which has its world premiere in Venice.

    Critics gave the press screening one of their most enthusiastic receptions yet, applauding the 122 minutes of Phoenix’s brilliant physical performance well before the credits began to roll. Oscar buzz was already brewing for Phoenix before the film’s debut and is sure to grow after its Italian launch.

    The Joker character has been depicted numerous times on film and TV, most famously by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger, who won a posthumous Oscar for the role a decade ago.

    Phoenix negated being influenced by past silver screen Jokers. "For me the attraction to make this film was we were going to approach it in our own way. I didn’t refer to any past iterations of [the Joker]. It just felt like our own creations, which was really important to me and the key to it."

    Phoenix lost 52 pounds for the part, fully inhabiting his own version of the character which first appeared in the original Batman comic in 1940. Losing weight in such a short time helped Phoenix get in character. "It turns out that affects your psychology. You start to go mad," he said. Todd Phillips also gave him a blank journal/joke book which helped him uncover his character as he began to fill in the pages, with words and images that are seen in the film.
