He looks good to me! Joaquin Phoenix is a fantastic actor. This movie takes place before he's the Joker so I believe the way he looks now won't be his final form of the Joker.

I want to know why some people say this looks terrible. What makes it look terrible? 

Maybe many thinks the makeup looks amateurish? I think that's kinda the point. Hes just a maniac who paints his face.

I think the negative reaction to the makeup is that it's too far on the "circus clown" end of the spectrum. For example the red nose really makes it look silly, not maniacally sloppy like Ledger's or the evil simplicity of Nicholson's all-white face with thin red lips. Too much Ringling Brothers, if you ask me.
