Joker ★★★★

Setting aside all the buzz and converstaion around the film, Joker deftly tells the story of a man cast aside by a society that shuns him, yet embraced by it's people as he's swept up in events he can barely control. Amazing performance by it's lead aside, the film stumbles only slight with what message it really wants to convey. Still, for all that modern media wished to force upon it, the film genuinely wants to tell you a story, and not just be a 'good comic book movie', as if there weren't any before.
