"Joker" is a film whose reputation precedes it. It has a good reputation because it won the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival and Joaquin Phoenix is generating Oscar buzz for his performance as the title character. But it also has a bad reputation because it's a dark, violent, adult take on a popular comic book character that seems to celebrate irresponsible social upheaval.
