Joker {Put on a happy face} Discussion Thread.
« on: October 06, 2019, 07:37:08 AM »
Don't come in here until you see the film. YOU MUST SEE THIS!







What could make this scene more eerily beautiful than it already is? Knowing it’s improvised by Joaquin.



Quote
When Joaquin Phoenix struggled early on to wrap his head around Arthur Fleck, the terminally depressed, mentally unstable, and bullied clown-turned infamous Batman nemesis in “Joker,” composer Hildur Guðnadóttir came to the rescue without even realizing it.

It started with Phoenix and director Todd Phillips struggling to complete the scene in the public bathroom following Fleck’s murderous rampage in a subway train. Phoenix wanted to mess around with a dance and Phillips introduced him for the first time to Guðnadóttir’s haunting, cello-driven theme. The result was an unexpected epiphany: “The Bathroom Dance,” in which Phoenix moved soulfully to the rhythm of the music. It began his transformation from Fleck to Joker, and served as the actor’s muse. Thereafter, he could be seen listening to the music in his ear piece on set throughout the shoot.

“The Bathroom Dance” theme returns toward the end of the movie when Fleck emerges as Joker down the long stairs across from his tenement apartment, and then before making his TV appearance with late night talk show host Murray Franklin (Robert De Niro). “Phoenix just told me a couple of weeks ago that this was the moment where he was really able to find the character,” said Guðnadóttir, who won the Emmy last month for her “Chernobyl” score.

“Phoenix’s Joker brings something that no previous version has had: humanity.”     –   Michael Rougheau, GameSpot

“You don’t dare look away from Joaquin Phoenix’s performance.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

I felt for him the whole film. And a few moments hit way to close to the heart for me.  He brought so much to the character it's going to be hard to watch anyone else fill those shoes.  I'm happy it's the only time we will see him on film though.  One is all we needed.

I read a theory that he was in the asylum the whole time and the whole movie is his fantasy.  This is like The Killing Joke.  I'll have to watch it again to pick out things I didn't notice.

Movie is perfect in so many ways, felt the character, his rise, and his freedom!

Some of the stuff I read online makes me want to say "go suck my fuck!"

Sometimes people don't like to see a glimpse into the reality they shunned and swept under the rug.  I for one will continue to lift up the rocks and look for the creepy crawlies and keep digging till I find what i want.  But back on topic
I had this discussion the other day, that the climbing into the refrigerator was him entering a cocoon.
