    This year we are getting a seemingly brand new take on the classic Batman villain, the Joker. This version stars Joaquin Phoenix as a failed comedian named Arthur Fleck - a new name for the old character. People are saying it's a whole new origin story for the Joker and I think that's true... but maybe not in the way most people are thinking. I think this Joker is not actually REAL! What do I mean? You're about to find out!

    The reason why Joker is R Rated because without R it would just be a Joke

    Not only they have a non canon name, the age gap between the joker and batman is just huge

    You can tell what is reality and what is not based on the populations actions. Ex. When Arthur was in the comedy club writing down jokes, he laughs at the wrong times and everyone around him doesn’t have a reaction, but when he’s on the tv show or dancing on the stairs you can hear or see peoples reaction to him.

    I would go as far to say that this movie might not even take place in the DC universe.Arthur Fleck is just a guy living in New York who has read too many Batman comics and is tying them into his delusions.

    “Inappropriate actions”... first thing shown is a clip of Arthur trying to make a bored kid on the bus laugh. Yeah, what a freak

    You’ve misunderstood American Psycho: all that is actually happening. It’s rather more that the whole story is an allegory for 80’s yuppie culture

    2019: “The worst part of having mental illness is people expect you to act like you don’t”1999: “The first rule of fight club is: You don’t talk about fight club. The second rule of fight club is: you don’t talk about fight club.”The fear of the stigma of mental illness has gone on for WAY too long.

    I have a question that nobody seemed to cover: When he is dancing down the stairs how did the two detectives recognise him?

    May you do a joker analysis like this but with spoilers because the move had key scences that may help you get to or can change the idea of you talking about and uncovering joker. And did you even watch the film because arthur is just violent to let out his anger, his care of his mom is explained and arthur's tongue painting is AFTER not taking medicines. The laughing is CAUSED by the medicines and on the medicines he hallucinates. There are many other scences to help you figure out joker that t you can include WITH spoilers

    feeling kinda weird here to be honest, I have Scizophrenia myself (diagnosed around a year-ish ago) and you sadly educated me more on this illness than my Psychiatrist and Psychologist. I live in germany, a country well known for having public health care. I didn't even know about the handwriting study but it is oddly accurate, I have handwriting like that too oddly enough.

    The only part of the movie where he was hallucinating was him having a strong relationship with the girl

    It is weird to see "the joker" have a back story and make us have empathy for him.

    Food for thought. What if Arthur at the end is The Joker and reminiscing and reliving his past and how he created Batman. His old psychiatrists got her job back and was assigned with him once more. Which brings us to the end film where the murders her. Ultimately bringing on his fate to be assigned to Dr.Quinn.

    You know, this makes a lot more sense to me. The Joker is a demon who arises to face Batman's dark angel. There can be no Joker without the bat. Not to mention that the Joker being the leader of a socialist movement makes no sense.
