Joker vs. The Master



Joaquin Phoenix is quite simply THE man. No one plays damaged men better than him, and these two powerhouse portrayals of trauma-induced mental conditions are up there in best-of-the-decade category. I'll pick The Master for having Philip Seymour Hoffman’s extra dose of greatness, but both films are a treat for lovers of quality acting.

I like The Master but I have to be in the right mood to watch it. I'll go with Joker


Loved The Master but give the edge to Joker.

The Master was the most boring,pretentious & pointless movie I have ever SEEN. As someone who considers Boogie Nights,Magnolia,Punch-Drunk Love & There Will Be Blood as his all time favs, I can confirm that The Master is basically the Emperor's New Clothes.
