It hurts to watch this movie seeing him being hurt so badly throughtout the movie but seeing him transform into a monster hurts because it kind of feels like we've lost a friend to darkness since the movie doesnt force us to like the terrible things he does

This dude literally added in a building that was shown for 2 seconds to give a more crowded feeling to Gotham. Now that’s a director.

Tone unsettling. Arthur raised by narcissist mom. Mom told him put a smile on your face. Character study. Laughing off set/fun.

But you see there actually are people that have gone through stuff similar to what he did. But when you put it in a movie people just watch it, think about it, then move on

I would pay to see an explanation of why super young minorities are beating up a white 40 year old actor in a film. Todd Phillips, you're not smart or complex, and neither is this movie.

The water and flower is almost impossible to see in that scene. I feel it should've been more obvious what was happening. I feel not many really noticed it. I never noticed it even after watching it twice.

This is what you call a film. When you just simply see the appearance and you know you are viewing a masterpiece. What Todd did was an artistic execution for a wonderful cinema experience. The Joker just met all those criterias.

It’s the last scene I want to be explained. Was he a nutter that thought it all up in his mind .. or was he really the joker and just got caught?
James GaDoza
James GaDoza Il y a 3 mois
Because he is a dark character but very human he killed many people so why wouldn’t that last scene be real and his illusions but in my opinion it’s more of an imagination only happened once and the patter shows that his illusions is him being happy which is what he wants but he knows that won’t happen because of the worlds corruption so the last scene couldn’t have been a illusion/imagination scene because he always imagines himself being happy not killing as it’s shown at the end

Maybe it’s just me but when i watched this movie I felt like the joker in a way?? like his laugh was so silly that during certain scenes that definitely supposed to be funny, i was laughing. same thing with the music. during the scene were he’s in the cop car and the scene on the stairs i was vibin and dancing the music even though i knew what he was going to do/what he did, just like how he would dance when it was an inappropriate time to do so.
