Rewriting popular movies to prove that one small change can make a huge difference.
Listen. Joker looks great. Sounds great. And is terrifically acted. But that's about it for me. The script was shallow. It asks a bunch of questions that it doesn't feel remotely interested in answering or even having an opinion on besides "mental health = good" and "murder = bad" (and even those are a stretch). It's a shame because this story has potential.
