Join us for a special screening of 'Joker', with an introduction by production designer Mark Friedberg.
Awarded the Golden Lion by a Lucretia Martel-led jury at the Venice Film Festival, Phillips’s telling of the origins of Batman’s arch-foe channels the nightmare New York of Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy, with Joaquin Phoenix giving a totally committed, impressively unhinged, and physically transformative performance as Arthur Fleck, a mentally ill would-be stand-up comic whose eventual very public violent breakdown unleashes an explosion of pent-up rage in powder keg Gotham City. “Phoenix is astonishing… the rare comic book movie that expresses what’s happening in the real world.”—Variety
