Joker review – a thrilling rendition but no masterpiece

Joker is a gritty and thrilling contemporary adaptation with an awards worthy performance from Joaquin Phoenix. A disturbing and demented origin story that breaks down the iconic Batman villain and strips him raw. What we're left with is a frail, damaged and vulnerable member of a failed society... Even so, the film doesn't break as much ground as one might expect.
