Joker was lit.. I think it’s the perfect opportunity to introduce a rated R Batman.

Joaquin Phoenix’s performance in the Joker is outstanding, and Todd Phillips is a cinematic genius! Finally a raw, dark, and unsettling origin story both the character and Gotham deserves... 10/10 in my book. #Joker pic.twitter.com/6S8yFoNtrd

Probably my fav shot in the entire Joker film is the shot where he’s waiting to go out onto the stage. The background, the choice of colors, his presence in that moment, seeing how it’s being played out. I literally felt chills. It was excruciatingly beautiful 🙏🏼 #JokerMovie pic.twitter.com/fHZjiYpdZq
