I saw Joker on Friday. Wow! Joaquin Phoenix absolutely killed it. He definitely brought his A-game to this one, his performance was nothing short of awesome. I think he absolutely will get an Oscar nod for this and I wouldn't be surprised if he won.

"his appearance on the talk show was weird. I was behind the motivation of him going to kill himself. But was surprised when all the sudden he got the confidence/anger to go on his rant."


For me, this is what tied this initially kinda boring movie to the Joker as we have known him in the past.

"Did he get inspired by seeing all the people dressed up like him?"


I think yes. The events on the subway were pretty formative.

Same. One of the things I liked about this movie was it was hard to tell what was in his head and what was real. I initially thought the Murray phone call was the former.

"Joker isn't an antihero. You can't root for him"


Personally, I don't need a protagonist. But that is a common complaint to be sure. I loved American Psycho, but there is nobody to root for there either.

"socially clueless and deranged he's also plain dumb"


Yes, yes, and no.

"the entire theme is basically we fail to understand and treat mental illness."


It's a comic book movie.

I saw this a few days ago. Not nearly as violent as I expected. Also, not nearly as good as I expected.
