Just watched "Joker" too...

...although great production values and such and technically a good performance by Phoenix it was overdone and overall just too negative. The term allegory continually came to mind throughout. I thought "Birdman" was a much better study of a person going mad.

"Parasite" was clever and entertaining but very dark as a comedy. Loaded with allegory too. Surprisingly, subtitles weren't a problem.

Both "Ford v Ferrari" and "Once Upon a Time" were boomer oriented nostalgia pieces. Both were well done overall but I thought Bales's performance in FvF was uninspired whereas Pitt and DiCaprio were great in their roles.

So...of the four I've seen, I vote for OUaTiH mostly because it was kinda like a big glorious selfie just like the academy and it's awards.
