As this film has won the Venice Film Festival a month ago, probably even those are interested in seeing it who are otherwise not that into comic book adaptations.
Until now, director Todd Phillips was known for his hilarious comedies (The Hangover -trilogy, Starsky & Hutch, Due Date) so his making a dark origin story for Batman's most iconic opponent has come as a big surprise for cinemagoers. The film's triumph at the Venice Film Festival was an even bigger surprise and also an important event in the history of cinematography, as no comic book adaptation could win before. Joaquin Phoenix is superb in the role, and those who are not afraid of an unsettling (and of course strictly R-rated) film will surely appreciate it for its merits.
