  1. It's such a shame that people are trying to turn this film into a scapegoat for causation of violence considering recent tension on things like gun violence and how particularly the US is blaming video games and "violent" media. It's sad because whilst stylised, this movie is an analysis of the sad realities that cause people to do questionable things, you empathise with him because everyone who has ever done anything bad descended to that space, they didn't start off there. All in all a great movie, had me thinking about it for a few days after viewing, very interesting.

  2. I can't underatand how it got such mixed reviews. I went into it not knowing what to expect because of that and left thinking its probably one of the best movies I've ever seen in theaters.

  3. So much details and attention put into the opening scene. I could literally sit and watch the team of JOKER, breaking down all BTS and things that they wanted to convey to us. And Joaquin deserves an Oscar or Imma riot.

  4. Literally my only complaint is that we didn't get to see Joker in final form enough. The scene when he shot the TV host sat down a little and then started dancing was such a Joker moment. Wished we had a little more of that. Or you know… a sequel?

  5. I really enjoyed your film, Mr Director Man, and so did my entire family. Including my father, who dislikes most things we go to see. Caused us to strike up a somewhat philosophical discussion afterward, so it certainly hit us in the think.

  6. I see people saying they couldn’t root for Arthur when he became joker? This movie made me wanna see him destroy Gotham lmao. As a viewer I felt like I became crazy just like Arthur… Top 10 best movie of all time for me

  7. i live in pakistan and i have watched this movies 5times already…i freakin loved it..if Joaquin doesnt win an oscar.. something is really wrong with hollywood..
