After watching “the joker” movie, thinking back to “joker” Arthur said to the therapist in the opening scene, “am I thinking too much, or is the world getting too crazy?” This sentence, from the bottom of society to express their feelings of survival? Or is it the bias of Arthur’s negative thoughts about mental illness? The joker is an adaptation of DC Comics’ superhero villain, the joker, but it’s not the villain we’re familiar with from batman.
The different “clown” story is how Arthur, a poor man, becomes a sociopath and the “prince of crime” of Gotham city as we know it. DC has opened up a lot of room for director Todd Phillips to play, and with the wonderful performance of Aquin phoenix, “the joker” has both cinematic and commercial value.
Watching “the joker”, you can’t help but feel sad about the situation experienced by “the joker” Arthur flack, who bears almost all the pain of the consequences. At the beginning of the film, Gotham city’s garbage accumulation, social and economic depression, the wealth gap and other aspects of the city. Arthur lives at the bottom, with his mother (Frances Conor) at his side. He was nicknamed “happy” by his mother when he was young. He also wanted to bring joy to the world, so he dreamed of becoming a stand-up comedian.
