Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz and Todd Phillips on Directing Joker

Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, and director Todd Phillips discuss the unique vision that brought Joker to life.

Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.
