In Phoenix's hands Arthur Fleck feels like a fully realized human, albeit one who is deeply damaged and disturbed.
In the 1989 Tim Burton film, we were introduced to Jack Napier, an insane bad guy who killed Bruce Wayne's parents, but this character has been scrapped and reinvented by director and co-screenwriter Todd Phillips, the man behind the Hangover franchise, who has given the joker a new name, a new face, and an entire new backstory that was one of the most tragic and heartbreaking character studies I have ever seem, made all the more powerful by the fact that the guy had a condition that caused uncontrollable laughing and there was absolutely nothing about this guy's life to laugh at.
People criticized the film for this Joker not fully embracing the evil and chaos in him like say Heath Ledgers Joker.
