I viewed this gritty and enlightening movie, and it was nothing short of what I expected…Joaquin Phoenix is the truth, and lived up to Heath Ledger’s legend in The Dark Knight. This movie was disturbing and curiously awaken an empathy in me for a character I hated since I was kid. You will feel sorry for him.Let’s first start by saying this is not for kids to go (he he) it is pretty gruesome at times. This movie was so disturbing that they actually was checking guests in the theater for weapons in case someone has an unpleasant sensitivity to this film and could be influenced to do violent acts.
Yes…wow is right.
So in a nutshell you will see an extremely well executed narrative of the tragic issues of mental health (and bullying) in this country. You will get the Joker’s rage and will see the world a bit different I promise you.
Worth your time folks, go see it.
