Joker Review and Controversy

We're all clowns

This week marks the release of Joker. Despite, or possibly due to, its controversy the film is setting records at the box office and, like Rambo, we are seeing a divide between cringe critics and audiences.


  

The Movie

Many reviewers have focused on the surrounding politics rather than the film itself. So how was the movie? Was it political at all? 

Thankfully I was able to see it without being gunned down by an incel or fed. So let's take a quick look at the film and the politics surrounding it.

The film opens perfectly. We follow Arthur through his daily routine as a clown in a run down dump of a city. The future is bleak and the world around him grows worse by the day. The film builds off of this throughout its run time. Structurally, it's like a slice of life anime. Probably Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu, but if she made no friends, lived in a diverse country, and everyone ignored and bullied her. 

The film has a slow start and it gradually builds. The tension is phenomenal and in moments when shit hits the fan its quite the experience. 

Funnily enough the film is not political. It does not support any particular partisan ideal. It instead shows what happens to those ignored and mistreated in society. Joker even gives a "we live in a society" speech near the film's end. 


SPOILERS

A couple interesting points in the narrative:

  • Arthur was raised by a single mother who allowed her boyfriend to beat and abuse him. It is revealed that she adopted Arthur and attempted to use him for gain on Thomas Wayne by claiming he was Wayne's son. 
  • His older generation mother watches and buys MSM stories 100% no doubt.
  • Arthur relies on medication and his therapist fails to listen to him.  
  • After Joker executes host Murray Franklin, we see multiple TVs showing MSM instant reaction. They all repeat the same talking points and are  indistinguishable from one another. Much like this video:


    

Politics

(57:48)

With the main protagonist being an alienated white male, MSM, outrage mobs, and even the fucking US Army and FBI took issue. Why is it that we can have film after film after film of alienated blacks, jews, asains, women, gays and others, but not one of an alienated white guy?


Here's some media posts and government actions taken in response to the film:


 

Theaters even placed warning signs about the film. Some real, some not.


  

Director Todd Phillips has not fallen to pressure. He says this film is him hitting back at woke culture.


 

In Summary

Great movie. Definitely worth checking out.

    You are so brave.
    >If the Joker is an incel hero why would incels go to a theatre filled with other incels and commit violence there? This whole thing feels like it hasn’t been thought through.
    So they can play real life fortnite.
