You can’t do retro until you go full retro. In the 1970’s, mental illness wasn’t all the buzz like it is today. I doubt most homes knew what manic-depression really meant, or depression for that matter. Joker goes a little too deep in that in the writing.

You can’t have an amazing drama/horror flick when it’s paid for by Marvel and is indeed a comics flick. Joker starts out amazing as a drama/horror but crashes in the end into a Marvel fuselage. This will please the young and confound the older (like me). As you can see Joker has an identity complex.

I still liked it a lot. Hear more of my impressions of the film on my podcast The DRP Film Podcast: Listen here: –> thedrpodcast.com/joker/
