Joker {Put on a happy face} Discussion Thread.

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.

“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.

Yes this movie fuck with your brain.  I think that's the point.  First time I saw it "meh"  what is that all about?  But I want to watch it again.  It is a demonic movie.  :anger:
