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.

I actually kinda always felt like the biggest clue is right there in the title: the film is called "Joker" and not "THE Joker" as the character is most often referred to.

Arthur Fleck was the most depressing joker ever. This movie was so depressing! I had no sympathy for him when he killed his mom.

Your hypothesis doesn't work in regards to the Joker in the protests. He's not commanding them, he's just blending into them.

The Joker laughing after getting hurt might also be just a weird pain response cause sometimes when I get hurt especially when my head hits something like a wall I laugh or at least I used to

Im pretty sure he only has delusions when hes arthur because he wants to be recegnized by everyone and be loved.but all the scenes as joker are real because he doesn't need to fanticize anymore because his dreams became a reality

Arthur can't be the real joker based on this movie because he's not physically nor mentally ready to go toe to toe with the bat. I think there needs to be a sequel in wich Arthur spends a lot of time in Archam where he learns to manipulate people like the joker and where he becomes stronger physically.

This is spoiler free? I mean I've seen the movie before this video but if I hadn't I would be very disappointed.

Im sure by now hopefully you know that Peggy Fleck IS NOT Arthur's mother, he is adopted. So your whole "heredity genetics" argument goes right out the window.

MatPat this video gave me the chills. Not only the theory itself and your voice but also the edition and the music were so point it's scary
Chelsea - 14 days ago
Okay, watching this after the movie has already come out and after this most recent film theory on it and a couple other things, this is insane and I mean it in a good way. I think matpat might have been pretty much straight on when it came to this.

Idk if you’ll see this it’s been a while when you posted this but when I saw the movie I saw Arthur as not the joker but a follower of the joker someone who’s ideals “match up” with that of the clown prince, just food for thought I suppose
Michael Taylor
Michael Taylor - 14 days ago
There is no other Joker in the movie for him to follow. HE is the Joker. And in the movie, he says he doesn't believe in anything. He has no ideals. He's pure chaos.

So did Joker not remember the abuse? He was so horrified when he found out. Maybe the brain injury that caused his laugh also affected his memory or maybe he pushed it away as a coping mechanism to trauma

3:18 Wait Wait Wait. I distinctly remember references to *Arthur Fleck* . It was in the same noir animation style as the 1992 Animated Series and was even voiced by *Mark Hammill* . It shows the early days when he masqueraded as Red Hood before being thrown into a vat of chemicals to ultimately become the Joker we know and love in the series.

I love the fact that they smuggled an arthouse film right in under the noses of the Batman crowd. It's not faultless, but it talks about the things that the left has forgotten and the right never knew.

i know my comment will be pusshed to the bottom but heres a theory for ya... have you red comics? there isnt 1 joker ... there is 3 . this is the joker 1 of 3 jokers NUFF SAID
MARTIN Stuart - 17 days ago
I still hold firm that the whole movie was in Arthur's head. None of it actually happened. He was in the hospital the whole time. That whole theory started the second there's a flash of him smacking his head off his cell door while he is apparently sitting with his case worker at the beginning of the film. I could be wrong, that's the magic of ambiguity. Really don't want a sequel, it will have to answer questions. It's the equivalent of making The Thing 2. No one wants it, it's not needed. Leave it be, and you have created something brilliant, beautiful and unique.

Ikr?? I really hope that they didn't make a sequel. But i wonder what they will do with the new Robert Pattinson 'The Batman' without Joker.

Dunno if you noticed this,but every clock in the joker movie reads 11:11 o'clock
Seriously, go back,see the entire movie, and read every single clock you find
They didn't even necessarily need clocks in some shots,but it looks like they were put there just to show us 11:11

Right after watching the movie a second time my theory is "Arthur" IS the Joker, but his story is fictional (as in he invented it), it's just one of the many different stories he tells the doctors (like in Mad Love) and his name isn't even Arthur.

What if Arthur is actually not the joker and the protest are actually someone else’s doing and Arthur is imaging that he caused it and he is actually a nobody or that I’m wrong ( maybe he just dreamt the whole thing actually) DUNNO REALLY
