Since the JOKER premiered at the Venice Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival, a lot has been written about how the film positions Phoenix's Arthur Fleck as a sympathetic character that might inspire real-life mentally ill patients. Everyone's going to have a different interpretation of the story, but my take is that evil is not born rather traumatic events and psychological factors come into play. It's a real character study.
Let us know in the comments below your thoughts on the film.
