Warning: “Joker” arrives at HBO Portugal this Thursday
The film starring Joaquin Phoenix has been one of the most popular in Portuguese cinemas in recent years.
It was this role that gave Joaquin Phoenix an Oscar
It premiered in 2019 and quickly became one of the most popular films of the decade. Now “Joker” arrives at HBO Portugal. You can start watching Todd Phillips’ production starting Thursday May 20th.
The film follows aspiring comedian Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), who is becoming increasingly mentally fragile and becoming the wild card we all know: psychotic and disturbing. The exploitation of Arthur, a man despised by society, is not just an examination of the character, but a broader call for attention.
With this role, Joaquin Phoenix won the Oscar for best actor. “Joker” had a relatively small budget, but made a profit of the equivalent of hundreds of millions of euros and convinced the critics and the public. The film also shows Robert De Niro.
