    Or we can just stop asking the dumb fucking questions. If you feel sympathy towards a version of a character as broken as Arthur Fleck. It doesn’t make you a psycho. Besides, joker has done WAY worse shot to people in the comics. Just because a sympathetic version was created doesn’t mean it’s the same joker gas using, boy wonder murdering clown. It’s just a broken character reacting poorly to a broken society.

      What is wrong with feeling empaty towards a sick, crazy person? That happens because the world is not black and white. In real life, people are not evil because they are evil and thats it. They all have their reasons, most of them think they are doing good. Some of them don't even acknowledge what they are doing because they can't. Thats how the world works. If the Joker makes you mad, its probably because you want to feel safe in your simple view of the world: Bad and good, left and right, republicans and liberals. Welp, I have news for you, thats not how the world works, and "the Joker" is how real humans work. And we are all humans.

            The legacy lamestream media didn't want what happened to Murray to (hopefully) happen to them.

                Man, I honestly think a lot of these critics were hoping something bad would happen in relation to the films opening just so they could smile and say "I told you so".

                  Poor lady. She was literally in the movie and knows way more about it than these stupid journalists and people who only get their opinions from Twitter, but she can't say the wrong thing in response to their boneheaded questions about it because they'll fuck up her career.

                      Things are so bad right now with mass shootings being so common, how could anyone blame a movie if/when it happens again?? You've got a movie where the guy is literally FORCED OFF HIS MEDICATION, but all they wanna discuss is how some random jerk might react??? What about how SOCIETY is reacting to mental illness, cutting funds, blaming every shooting on "the mentally ill" while never naming an exact illness that would cause this?? Just blame Arthur and the video games??

                              Hey "Variety", that rabble rouser with a mic is a real POS. You could've asked her if the romance sequence was real or Arthur's mind, still gotten attention, and not been a jackass. Think about it next time during one of your smug dinners talking about how stupid the plebs are. You're welcome.

                                  What I got from the movie, at the absolute basic level is "Don't be a dick"

                                  We could gain a lot from actually being nice to people. Social media has desensitized us to other people's problems.

                                        She’s hot! You can’t blame Joker. If she smiled at me on an elevator i would definitely go home and choke the chicken.

                                              Being a fiction writer and occasional reviewer, I'm aware of the media controversy surrounding Joker, but it only serves to sell more Joker tickets. If it was a marketing ploy from the beginning, bravo. If not, the controversy worked anyway.

                                                      I think society needs to be a community. Having said that, it cannot be mandated nor coerced, it has to be a genuine decision by the individuals that make up the society to simply be kind and generous by giving time m, patience and understanding to those in need while not forcing their opinions and desires on others. Through these things of unconditional empathy we may help reduce the impact of mental illness.

                                                          Or she could say it's an absolutely necessary observation that society needs to have if they want violence to end. And that would have the desired effect. Instead she ended by negating the film's message.

                                                            Ironically, if we have a society creates the kind of people who would be tipped over the edge by this movie, then I think the movie is even more spot on.

                                                                                            All these dumb comments acting like she's walking on eggshells, when it's clear she hasn't really thought that hard about it. Todd Philips' thoughts on "woke" culture sound like alt-right youtubers, his largely liberal cast probably just assumed they were painting an empathetic portrait of a sad lonely man because that's what artists do, then suddenly Todd Philips is like: "it's about how SJW's make people into monsters" - he didn't say that, but he makes it sound that way. Listen to Marc Maron talk about it, he didn't seem to know the intention behind the film either, based on his reaction to Philip's comments.
