        I don't think Joaquin could've looked more miserable than he did in that scene forcing a smile. Beautifully acted.

            I really liked that at first every Arthur's scene is a close up, showing the pressure on him. But at the end it's a wiiiiide shot across a whole street with Arthur in the middle

              Anyone else see the large 'Batman Mask' in the dark negative space in the mirror at 1:01?

                Of all the DC and even Marvel's movie I've watched, this movie is too much realistic and much more human than all of the Superhero movies combined. And Heath Ledger would be proud seeing this.

                  The moment I think a lot of people in the theater realized his mother was even more sick than we had thought at first was when she said "don't you have to be funny to be a comedian?". So many people gasped in the theater at the moment like we couldn't believe she said that

                    Brilliant director with attention to every detail, perfect collab with the awesome Vegan actor Joaquin Phoenix to produce this gem of a movie.

                      Best Picture! Best Actor! Hands down, Masterpiece!!!! I'm watching the Academy Awards this year. If Joker doesn't get both, the Academy is completely bias, and I'll never give two shits about it again.

                            Instead of addressing the social ailments in the US we rather medicate ourselves to alleviate the pain... The state cut Arthur's meds, he flipped...

                                        To me the crazy part is how a lot of people are saying they relate to Jokers sadness and pain..
                                        Like myself..

                                          When I heard Joaquin were going to play joker in a solo DC movie my reaction was: Oh Idk about his appearance will suit as a joker but he'll pull it off and will do it justice.

                                          And he did just that! The origin story makes sense of the outcome as his joker persona as we seen in this movie.. the makeup n all. At first look reveal I was underwhelmed but it goes with a happy clown face.. for me THIS IS THE JOKER. I like it better than killing jokes acid version.. also I like it better than heaths. Heath was good ofc but he was too dark n angry villain than "isn't a burning city wonderful?" With a happy face n death jokes etc Joaquin truly is a top actor

                                                  One of the biggest scenes of the film, that no one has mentioned yet, but to me was so powerful, was Arthur's 'crying laughter'. That got me so much in the feels. Joaquin really outdid himself everytime he did that. Really struck me.
                                                  Joker really is the movie of the year hands down.

                                                    The overwhelming feeling of power given off in the scene near the end where Joker's standing on the cop car is absolutely incredible. It felt like Arthur had completed his transformation into the joker. And the blood smile... well, that was the cherry on top of the cake. Definitely my favourite scene, the toilet scene after the train murders is a close second, never felt more uncomfortable whilst smiling before in my life.

                                                      This was so great, Arthur didn't even have to speak, in every scene you know how he Is feeling. This is amazing!

"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free"

                                                                      • ZephyrAlphaOne

                                                                        • Ray
