BEST PICTURE OSCAR NOMINEES 2020
JOKER

JOKER
2019, Warner Bros., 122 min, USA/Canada, Dir: Todd Phillips

Directed, co-written and produced by Oscar nominee Todd Phillips, JOKER is the filmmaker’s original vision of the infamous DC villain, an origin story infused with, but distinctly outside, the character’s more traditional mythologies. Forever alone in a crowd, Arthur Fleck (an indelible Joaquin Phoenix) wears two masks. One, he paints on for his day job as a clown. The other he can never remove; it’s the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel he’s a part of the world around him, and not the misunderstood man whom life is repeatedly beating down. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty and, ultimately, betrayal, Arthur makes one bad decision after another that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty, allegorical character study. Costarring Robert De Niro. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (Phoenix), Best Director, Best Original Music Score (Hildur Guðnadóttir), and Best Cinematography (Lawrence Sher).
