Joaquin Phoenix has been threw a lot himself, so this role was perfect for him... He knows what it feels like to be on the side of society that's not pretty

Just amazing. Only improvisation can make these special scenes. I could tell when I was watching the movie that some parts must have been improvised. It reminded me so much of the movie "Naked"

If you killed someone and had anxiety you would dance like this as distress tolerance to not shoot yourself

I don’t know why I remember this scene the most cleary and why I feel so impressed.
I even listened to the Bathroom dance over and over.
Now I know why. Beautiful just like a bird escaping the cage and spread their wings for the first time.

This scene and characterization was brilliant. Arthur uses dance as a form of control- control of himself, control of the situation. When you watch the movie, you'll notice he dances when he feels confident in himself and his actions. Spoilery examples in my reply

This is my favorite scene in the entire movie! You can taste the power, glory, & satisfaction of his actions. Arthur's pain of his trauma becomes justified! I had tears in my eyes & chills over my whole body!!!

The dance fit so well into Joker's characteristic because after tasting blood for the first time in his life that he wants to celebrate by dancing. This moment is not the birth of Joker, this is the moment of rebirth of Joker. As he said later on, he doesn't have the "condition" because this is him: a natural psychopath that has been suppressed by life and society which just need a moment for him to finally break free.

The entertainment media (in total) is very proud of how well they dance with the news media to influence and control the herd mentality of the public. Actually, the industry would agree with me that their work is exquisite and artful, although shameful and destructive. The actual JOKE is on you. For the youth who are blinded by an entrained obsessive need for acceptance, this work is genius. If you haven't noticed, most actors today have a different avenue of training. They have been stripped of any real personality, left only with an alter ego created by the industry in control, like trained animals. The real wake up call came from the LAST JOKER..... Might you wonder what really happened to him? There are no exits from the deal.

I saw the film last night. Superbly directed and an amazing performance from Phoenix. Twists that hit you hard and unapologetic violence. Homages to previous movies and thought provoking social commentary. The use of a cello and the music score overall beautifully matches the moods created.

I wish that Todd waited like 1 more week to talk about the behind the scenes stuff. Only for the simple fact that some people might have not seen this before watching the movie.

That was one of the most striking scenes of the movies, to me.

All alone by himself, able to express something he would never express when being surrounded by other people, in a way venting his sanity and pulling in the madness through his almost ballet-like dance moves. It's like when you've hit the right amount of drunkenness, where you feel everything upped to 11 and don't feel drunk yet. So intimate. The haunting cello soundtrack, as well as the lighting and particularly the camera work, make this such a special moment. When everything just aligns perfectly.

When I walked out of the theater a week ago I said to my friends:"What you have just witnessed is a performance you only get to see every 10-20 years. We can really feel blessed to have seen this."

Critics say: Joker is a derivative mess that glorifies violence
Critics think: Woke orthodoxy dictates that mentally-ill white males shall have no help or sympathy, fathers are not necessary in their children's lives, eat-the-rich is a noble goal, it's all Trump's fault. I'd better pan this masterpiece.

I saw this scene and the first word that came to mind was "glory." In this particular moment, I feel like the "Joker" was born. Those larger than life movements AND the way he revels at himself in the mirror, ugh, just brilliant.
