This film is not only difficult to watch but painfully true about what a few are going through in their lives. We may be living in comfortable lofts or cozy townhouses and travel to work or show up at school like all is normal, but guess what things are not so cool after all.

Joker is definitely a masterpiece for actor Joaquin Phoenix who has come close to winning the Oscar for Best Actor twice in 2006 for Walk the Line and then in 2013 for The Master. There is no doubt this time, it is his turn. This is no comic book character but a real life child who is struggling to make the world happy.

Screenwriter Scott Silver has woven a web of hallucinations, delusions and reality under the dark weight of Gotham city. Possibly never before has the contrast between the Rich and Poor being so obvious in a Hollywood film. Will this arouse any #MeToo type of movement?

Todd Phillips has done a very interesting job of the film, who would have thought, the guy who directed the Hangover series can direct Joker. It is no wonder that actor and now producer Bradley Cooper has contributed to this amazing film. The trio is completed with cinematographer Lawrence Sher who is exceptional too with Joker.

When Hildur Ingveldar Guðnadóttir got your attention for Sicario, you had to notice her talent and she has beautifully composed the soundtrack for Joker.

The film will have a long list of Academy Awards nominations, but most importantly it will question the Joker in you?

It is like sitting in front of your own talk show hosted, in this case by Robert De Niro.

Why does the world play with you? Why can’t they understand you? Or do you know and feel things they don’t?
