I’ve not seen joker , but I want to see it after seeing half the movie in clips and hearing it explained for hours, and everyone seems to have liked it
Can't believe you liked anything about this. Awful, awful movie. Boring & tedious the first half, and an Antifa tribute the 2nd. Two hours wasted of my life and I truly think Juaquin Phoenix is just mentally unstable. I guess folks forget that year he literally went around mentally unstable a few years back... Zero stars.
Thank you for mentioning the lack of originality in a movie that could have been called Martin Scorsese's Joker.
I think it was after he killed his dick co worker that he decided to kill murray
Good review my man!
actually Scorsese only did that part cuz the original actor bailed and they didn't have any time to find someone new so he gave it a shot and most people thought he did a good job (the nut in the back seat in taxi driver) i know a lot about taxi driver. In fact the scene when jodi foster is walking down the street she is with a blonde girl only 14 that was the real inspiration for Iris's character...she had a cameo and she was a real hooker they took her to lunch and she'd put pixie sticks into her cola and the little things she did was added in the movie.
Most people want to believe that there are good and bad people in principle. And most movies are like this. But this is not reality. I work as a psychologist in a forensic psychiatry and the biographies of my patients are mostly horrible and one can comprehend how they became criminals.
There's not enough resource to make everyone millionaires but they are enough to make everyone middle class.
I wasn't a fan of this film, but good for Phoenix, I don't really like any of his films, I don't think I like him.
Film was a master piece
There’s a bit of Falling Down in there too.
The complaints are not about the violence. It's about excusing it. The only people in the movie who condemn Joker's actions were portrayed as assholes themselves so the criticism holds no weight. People who say movies don't effect the way people think and behave are lying to themselves.
I honestly find it abhorrent and egregious that movies and video games are blamed constantly for the horrible things that happened even regarding the persons behavior I find that abhorrent laughable and totally stupid and dumb on steroids don't blame the art and the artist hyperbole can corrupt a person
Interesting review, i can appreciate your perspective. Personally, I wasn't a huge fan because I really didn't feel the portrayal of mental illness was realistic. The build up seems maligned and I really had a hard time feeling sympathy partly because I felt the narrative was forced down the viewers throats. Take the worse case scenario that could ever happen to anyone, add a shitty society narrative (where even the councillor is unsympathetic) and therefore that justifies the violent behaviour. But I'm not surprised either movies often turn mental illness into violent tragedy porn and this is the Joker origin story we are talking about. I see where the director was going but honestly it came off as he was trying too hard to be artistic. That being said I am glad in your review you are aware that not all mental health looks like this, that it doesn't necessarily justify the violent ends and that the actions of the character were often disturbing and unsettling. As a women I can tell you many of us have had to deal with a creepy male stranger that clearly wasn't completely well at some point, where we are left looking for the closest exit.
Fan of your pod, but to act like Joker and Deadpool are similarly themed is frankly idiotic. Come on man. And again, the violence isn't the issue some took with The Joker. Really, really dumb discussion on your part.
I personally have no problem with the movie, but the issue some had was no about extreme violence; it was about the main character, one who MANY viewers looked at as a hero, whom was a murderous psychopath. It's really not all that tough of a concept.
Think you're focusing on points that should be but a footnote. It's not Taxi Driver or like it. Sooo the talk show assassination scene was riffed from Donald Glover's "This is America." Ummm no...looking a little to close to get it right.
I like that Joker is a lot like Taxi Driver because I've never seen Taxi Driver but this movie made me want to watch it.
My biggest problem with this movie is how much similar it is to King of Comedy. He wants to become a stand-up comedian - He loves a woman and imagines doing something with her - He imagines going to the talk show - He practices talking with his idol and the guests while sitting on a couch.So much of this movie are things I've seen before but with less depth and time. Joker desperately needed to be longer and more original. It's not wrong if your movie is inspired by another, but it doesn't have to copy its inspiration so clearly while lacking this much identity. It's a shame that people consider this movie as an example of how to do a character study right while forgetting the amazing - and highly underrated - movie Nightcrawler.
I’m pretty sure religion has caused more deaths than movies, yet, movies get the blame?🤷🏽♂️

When I saw the movie, I thought to myself, "This is literally just a repackaged Taxi Driver."
The movie is alright. Taxi driver is better. The whole, it's in his head, is boring as hell; let's have some gritty reality. It's a great portrayal and without a doubt it's the Joker. Still, it didn't live up to the hype. HA HA HA!

Before he shoots Murray the monologue is boring and sounds like they didn't write it very well.
Rather than inspire me to commit mass murder, this movie convinced me to pay more attention to a friend who has some mental problems due to past traumas..the true hero of the movie is Murray : « not everyone’s awful »
2 major criticisms:1)movie should have had one very funny joke at some point2) jokers video goes viral to get the attention Murray....what year is it?
The final scene where he kills the woman is very important. It shows how he fully became Joker and doesn't kill people who made fun of him anymore. He is now killing people well that's what makes him truly happy.
Imagine if Chris Nolan made the joker, just imagine how many puzzles he would put in, puzzles that we would talke about it for decades.
Thought about it as well. How would he portray Jokers genius? Cause that was missing to some people.But those people got it wrong. This is before he becomes the prince of crime. After this movie, and until Dark Knight arrives, he became a genius. This movie was just the start. The basis before he became the prince of crime.
Umm, from the time the narrator say "mother," it is clear he missed the point of the movie.
I liked the movie, a lot. I also like and agree a lot of your content on YouTube. But I have an issue here. Do you know "Die Leiden des jungen Werthers" by Goethe? And the impact it had on the end of 18th century? Or few years ago - "13 reasons why"? ( 29% increase in suicide among Americans teenagers). Movies and literature and art do have impact on people's lives. Batman might have inspired strength and following the "good path". "Joker" tells you that there is nothing worth fighting for, nobody cares, there are people who don't have a place in the world. Again, I love the movie, I like the questions it asks, I like the mood. I just think we do have to acknowledge the impact the movie can have on one's life.
