In Gotham City, mentally troubled comedian Arthur Fleck is disregarded and mistreated by society. He then embarks on a downward spiral of revolution and bloody crime. This path brings him face-to-face with his alter-ego: the Joker.
Directed by: Todd Philips
Cinematography: Lawrence Sher

I think it’s fair to say that I loved and hated JOKER. I felt it sickening to watch, but I also loved what I was seeing at the same time. This ultra gritty representation of the Gotham City, and the overall socioeconomic representation was also very interesting. I think it is an amazing idea for a film, to be able to take one of the most famous villains in History, and give him/her a solo film and be as grounded as this film does.
I hope to see another Joker film sometime in the future, but hopefully not too soon. I put this video together today as the film came out digitally the other day so I was excited to cut something out of it. I wanted to cut something short and simple, yet have a really powerful finish at the end using this song I had heard in Mathew Vaughn’s film KICK ASS.
I hope you all enjoy! *Also, I apologize if the audio is bad, I am still getting used to levelling in Avid Media Composer, so please forgive that. Let me know what you think! I’ll be doing a video on the lighthouse next when it comes out on Friday over the holidays. Merry Christmas!
