Re: Joker (2019)

I guess I should have added 'to the same extent'. This stuff does manifest itself in different forms elsewhere, you're right, but what Joker tackles is something that appears more specific to North America, hence the nerve that it's striking with critics there (and, ultimately, far more mixed or do...

Re: Joker (2019)

Art is subjective but to imply that one cannot be objective about anything is incorrect.

Re: Joker (2019)

EW negative review of the film: "A movie with the message this one hammers home again and again... feels too volatile, and frankly too scary, to separate from the very real violence committed by young men like Joaquin Phoenix's Arthur Fleck in America almost every day."
