'Joker' is a one man show and the performance of Poenix's is one of the best performance of his career. His performance can be easily compared with Heath Ledger's 'Joker:The Dark Night'-2008.

The movie almost runs flawless but some scene have been stretched by the Director. The film could be much effecting by cutting a few minutes of unnecessarily stretched scenes.
