The critics panned Joker because they couldn’t handle a villain as a protagonist in a story or film.

i remember watching this and just, memorized by Arthur dancing and how creepy yet peaceful the scene was. I don't think a movie has ever made me felt like this before

It's not creepy at all. In fact it is liberating and very is an expression of who he is and who he is shaping up to be. It is a catharsis after his explosive release against THE BULLY. It's not about right or wrong at this time that I consider but Arthur's way of coping with his very very aweful life that makes it beautiful in the midst of the tragedy playing out...which Arthur later finds humorous and couches as a comedy and in truth most comedians laugh at their pain and most of our comical entertainment is mostly that...making fun of something that intrisically hurts us. I find it beautiful in a heavy way. To bring out beauty however small from great evil is somehthing like a rose in mud.

Please todd you have done the joker to perfection.....Please do Scarecrow or Bane if you can stay true to the joker character I just imagine what he'll do next with them

This reminded me of Butoh.
His acting was incredible. The movie was heavily flawed, and critics will overlook this because they will, understandably so, be so mesmerized by some of the best acting of this century.

This scene alone shows what a genius actor is capable of... Just an improvisation idea and flowing with it, let it go, be the character... Joaquin is the best, he should have 2 Oscars by now.

"A run-down bathroom with a flickering fluorescent light, a swooning piece of music and some slow, deliberate moves."
Believe me or not this whole line is not just only a script but a FEELING 😢💔

Joaquin Phoenix didn't just play this character beautifully, with an extraordinary performance. He improvised this scene, by turning his character's thoughts and feelings into dance and if this scene is now one of the most beautiful scenes of the movie is thanks to him. This is a proof that Phoenix put all his soul into this character, to the point that he disappears and we only see Arthur and Joker. When an actor is able to give new interpretation to his character's feelings by turning few lines of the script into something more deep and beautiful, that's when an actor becomes an artist! Phoenix definitely deserves all the awards for that performance and for his dedication and passion.

I want to thank Todd Phillips, because he is the one gave Phoenix this oportunity.

This scene is like a line of poetry, no logical words but describes the inner spirit change of the protagonist. One of the scenes of this decade.

@PokemonFan ok thank you ! I will watch it soon (definitely not this month bc my grandfather passed away today 💔 so I don’t feel like watching anything) but I’ll make sure to tell you what I think about it if I don’t forget.

What? The movie isn't scary at all it's just disturbing at times. There's only one part where he scares someone but no the movie isn't scary at all.

The idea that some people have music in them is a beautiful one. I've never considered it, but thinking back I have known several of those people in my life.

I find it offensive that Joker is not a black woman. Like why does it have to be another white male?? eww
Recht_voor_zijn_raap - 5 months ago
*Joaquin Phoenix -- Oscar best male lead in the Joker..
*Joe Pesci -- Oscar best male support role in The Irishman.
If only this was a world where this justice would happen.
But this is a society.

During the entire movie he dances when he's happy and angry. But in the bathroom he's finally given in and he needs to collect his thoughts and he does this by dance. He dances with his mom because he was happy. He's happy with his mom and that's why he danced with her. He was angry at mury and the rest of society and danced on his way to the studio knowing what he was going to do in front of everyone.

The greatest performance by an actor that I have ever seen. A masterpiece of cinematic art and if this movie doesn't sweep the Academy awards it's because PC culture has ruined the fine arts.
