    The movie didn't made me uncomfortable... in fact, i watch it when I'm down and feeling like shit. I feel a bit of satisfaction when Joker killed Murray and when riot went over the city, yes evil as it may seem. makes me wanna make people get what they deserve lol (not in a violent way, more on like it makes me feel like wanting to prove people that made me feel bad wrong by trying to be a better version of myself)

    I'd say the movie was mostly real as the film does make some sort of indication on what was and wasn't.

    The fact that at the end he was handcuffed says alot. They dont cuff you in a mental institution while talking to a SW. They would only cuff you if you're criminally insane.

    Maybe he killed *Sophie* because there was a siren in the background when he returned in his apartment... The part were his laughing while sitting on the couch naked...

    This video pointed out so much that I hadn't considered 😭😭😭 But I want to mention something...mental disorders are generally hereditary, and Arthur's mother is described as having very similar symptoms to his own. For that reason, I don't think he was adopted. As for everything else, your guess is as good as mine.

    Edit: There is also the possibility of head trauma though, so my theory can be completely disregarded now lol

    I loved the film. If I may add a small correction to this video, Murray did refer to Arthur as a joker.

    It’s not possible that all this was in his head and he was just telling this story to the psychiatrist ( some scenes yes they were in his head because Todd Philips showed us that they were ). However, he tells her “ you don’t listen, do you “. Therefore it’s unlikely he was telling a story to someone who is not listening!

    None of this 'analysis' or commentary matters at all. Joker is almost perfect as it is. Why try to deconstruct it?

    He was called a joker by Murray you just showed the scene where Murray showed the second clip quote on quote "Come on let's see another I love this guy." The first part of the scene Murray said "Here's a guy who thinks he can do my job, here's a guy who thinks you can just keep laughing and somehow make it funny. Let's take a look a this Joker."

    So when arthur said that he have negative thoughts in his mind to social worker..was he just thinking the way he wanted to kill people or he actually killed them?

    I don't think it was dream or imaginary because of the Wayne's death that we all know is true as a fact.

  • Naveen Kumar
    Naveen Kumar 18 days ago

    It's not his imagination, the hospital at the end of the movie was likely refurbished , and it has been years he has been in that hospital, setting stage for the next joker movie where Bruce wane has become an adult.

  • Timothy Densmore

    Saying that the whole thing could have never happened and was all in his head is moronic. This interpretation is lazy and awful. Yes there were clearly parts of the film that were part of Arthur's imagination but we have no reason to think the whole thing was imagined.

    This dudes first sentence is incorrect. He DOES NOT play Batman’s villain and he is not “The Joker”. Guy is lame excuse for a critic.

  • Luis Sotelo

    Everything happened the way we witnessed it, delusions and all. We saw the events of the film through the lense of the Joker which is why Philips is calling this a character study.
    The scene at the end is a flashback to when Aurthur / Joker was still admitted at Arkham. He planned the chaos and breakdown of society as a set-up for his ultimate puchline. The death of the Waynes and leaving Bruce an orphan. He did all of that just for his sick joke.
    Him being a humble meek person, pushed to violence because of his mistreatment from society, throught the film is a ruse. It's a psych out intended to confuse the audience of is true nature. The Joker is evil, and highly intelligent. The guys he kills on the subway were not his first victims. He was always a monster and was playing the part as part of his twisted deranged joke.
    When you see the film again watch closley at the fear in the eyes of his social worker and the reaction of the guy in the records department at Arkham when he realizes who he's talking to. They know what the audience doesn't. Also the deleted scene where he removes his co-workers clown nose and throws it in the street also shows his true nature.

    After watching joker I started to hate BATMAN. What a selfish ungrateful spoiled ass joke all he does is “I’m Batman” hides in the dark with no powers. I would rather watch Peter the Spider-Boy who horribly struggles a lot for no reasons than Batman
