Spoilers ahead! Stop reading if you haven't seen Joker yet!
Joker (2019) features a shocking, violent ending -- a sudden twist from the climax we THOUGHT the movie was setting up. But throughout these foreshadowing moments, what secret final twist was the movie actually hinting at us?

  • Once society starts treating mental illness not as a stigma, then they can truly understand it. It's okay to struggle, but people just see it as an insult instead of supporting.

  • The ending is so stupid because it feels the rest of the movie is cancelled. It's like watching a movie and the character wakes from a dream at the end. It ruins the origin story. It's not creative.

  • That "snazzy suit" is the same suit he'd worn in the entire movie, sometimes with different vest or matching vest and no jacket, etc.

  • I personally think the best way to interpret this movie is in a way which lines up with other dc movies, so i feel that the literally interpritaion makes a little bit more sence and help draw a somewhat definitive line between reality and hallucinations

  • I won't sympathize with criminals no matter what will be their social psychological background...from my point of view american society should fight violence many had been killed by perpetrators influenced by this type of personality (joker) hollywood is not an innocent establishment everybody must have a critical thinking not just a consuming mindset we love u americans take care of yourselves and denounce violence.

  • Really interesting point! You actually gave me some appreciation for the movie. The character clearly has some schizo-typic behaviour, now that I think about it is the point of the movie is that the audience is taken on a journey where they aren't sure what is real and what is imagined. I do think that there were things that really did happen, the problem is that we aren't entirely sure if things are memories, false memories, reality or imagination...

  • Arthur says a few times in the movie that his life is a comedy. The things he finds funny, other people find disturbing or morbid. Truly NO ONE else laughs at the jokes he makes, hence the "you wouldn't get it." Comedy is subjective right? Just a thought.
