A dark and subtle character study on the Joker in the formula of Taxi Driver? yes please.
I love the style, the tone, and Joaquin looks like he's giving his all in this movie.
People didn't have much faith in Todd Philips since he's known for mostly comedy. I didn't really understand that sentiment since Burton was known for comedies before signing on to Batman 1989.
Philips also shot and directed a documentary on GG Allin, so anyone who can understand the nature of hardcore punk, can certainly understand the anarchy and chaos of the Joker. So i had faith he'd be able to deliver a competent film.
just my two cents.
