NEW YORK: Movie ‘Joker’, the psychological thriller has become the most complained movie of 2019.
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has confirmed the news in its annual report, that the Dark comic-book story ‘Joker’ movie which Joaquin Phoenix stars as an alternate interpretation of the Clown Prince of Crime received 20 complaints relating to the film’s age 15 classification.
The complaints mainly argued that the BBFC should have classified the film as an 18, due to its violence and tone. While the movie features scenes of strong violence, including stabbings, shootings, and accompanying blood, the movie does not dwell on the infliction of pain or injury in a manner that requires an 18, the BBFC report added.
