Character/Acting Skills :
The director has displayed all the transition phases of Arthur, from a poor fellow to the creepiest man you will ever see who starts to love indulging in violent crimes. Phoenix is absolutely amazing and brilliant, you will witness a visual treat watching him play Joker. He is bizzare and scary but at the same time addictive. Phoenix has done complete justice to the role of Joker. From his creepy dance moves to his weird laughs, you will not blink your eyes when he is on screen. His expressions, body language are absolutely flawless. Some scenes will give you goosebumps, you will wonder is Phoenix at par with Heath Ledger Or he is playing this character on whole new level.Robert De Niro has also done a great job in the film.
This is a must watch drama with a social message and great acting skills portrayed by some brilliant actors. A breathtaking drama which will make question whether the society is wrong or the charater Joker.
