Watched Joker two days back at the IMAX Melbourne. Watching a movie at IMAX is always an experience in itself. More on that in a minute.
Joker is a fresh take on DC Comics character, and here they dig up the history and background as he grows into the maniac that he has been long known for. Without giving away too much, the storyline is a little sad at times. I think Joaquin Phoenix has done justice to the Joker role and put one of his best acting skills on display.
I really felt part of the Joker's life journey. And almost felt sorry for him at times. The storyline and acting is that good.
Now, more about the IMAX screen:
Quoting them, "IMAX Melbourne’s screen is the world’s largest and spans a massive 32 metres wide x 23 metres high. But visiting IMAX Melbourne goes beyond just seeing a movie on a huge screen. The size of the screen combines with a set of revolutionary projection systems, customised theatre geometry and 15,000 watts of digital surround sound to deliver the ultimate movie going experience."
