    Joker

    Stock Review: I've been busy lately, so here's something I wrote for my film class. Our prompt was "How is Joker not a comic book movie and instead a strong social critique on society?" My essay essentially refutes both those statements.

This is peak cinema, we have not been blessed with an experience this entrancing and this powerful since 2001: A Space Odyssey!
