    Todd was smart. He added the unreliable narrator aspect as a way of dismissing shitty writing. So fags who are fans of this trash can defend it by saying it was all in his head

      They should have run with that and connected it to The Batman that way. Use Phoenix instead of this Keoghan guy

    In the year 1968, thirteen years before the events of Joker, a documentary film on the then-current counter-culture was made named You Are What You Eat.
    There is a specific scene in that film in which Eleanor Baruchian (a woman with a deep voice) and Tiny Tim (a man with a high-pitched falsetto voice) sing I Got You Babe together

    At the time, comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin had a tv special together named Laugh-In, which in some ways parodied the 60s counter culture. The special was so successful, it was turned into a tv show. Dan Rowan, after having seen the clip of I Got You Babe, got Tiny Tim booked on the debut episode. It’s pretty funny, he didn’t show him to cohost Dick Martin, and utterly surprised him

    The popularity of his first appearance lead to demand for more Tiny Tim, and Rowan and Martin obliged

    After this, Tiny Tim developed a following, had a record deal, and appeared on other shows

    In the year 1968, the moon landing was the most viewed broadcast on tv. The second most viewed broadcast was Timy Tim’s wedding, which occurred on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson
    The point is, videos could go viral before the internet

    It's a great movie, but not for the reasons gays think. They will be surprised when the sequel doesn't go where they expect and they look like total retards for all their artsy-fartsy opinions and comparisons to Taxi Driver, etc.

        gays thought it was some arsty-fartsy standalone picture not really a normal capeshit film, but it is. It's a supervillain origin story that connects very much to Batman and a wider cinematic universe. Arthur at the start is not the kind of man who could take on Batman, but by the end he's off his meds and has regained the true genius level intellect they were suppressing. Now he is a supervillain actually capable of going up against Batman - not some retarded Taxi Driver style loser.

        There are key details from the comics and superhero films in general that totally went over most people's heads.

        Most gays didn't get this film because they bought into the media bullshit about it being about CURRENT YEAR shit and incels rise up. Nope. Nothing to do with that bullshit at all.

          Are you serious? The entire thing was an allegory of modern American male loners and the danger they pose.

            No it wasn't. That's what the media told you and you believed them. Watch it again without looking at it through their lens.

            Here’s some food, troll: what

            PROTIPS:
            >Joker is Bruce's half-brother
            >They share their father's intellect, drive, violent tendencies, and extralegal inclinations
            >watch the movie scenes backwards like Momento starting with a Joker who is the Joker you know, intelligent, scheming, capable. Watch him degenerate into a intelligence-suppressed tard on medication
            >Penny Fleck wasn't lying or delusional
            >Thomas Wayne fucker Penny and Arthur over to conceal his affair and protect his political ambitions
            >He's also responsible for the corruption of Gotham itself
            >He is likely personally responsible for Arthur's brain injury
            ie. Batman's Dad created the Joker
            >Watch it again - every piece of dialogue is in the service of a narrative below the superficial one - like him not being able to get his medication
            >it's just a capeshit supervillain origin story with all the comic book shit, just done in a style you're not used to

    people that find this movioe to be ebin smart and "artistic" are the types of people that only watch capeshit. which is why these same people shit themselves and threw a fit when the sequel was announced as a musical. because deeep down they, despite pretending to be le smart and cultured, knew they're going to be filtered.

    the video of him on a surface level was pretty inconsequential to anybody outside arthur. it was just a segment of some comedy program that would've been forgotten quickly once somebody turned the tv off. you can see how arthur makes a whole fantasy in his head about murray being his friend but to murray he was just another weirdo. what made an impact was arthur's violent actions
