Film critic, YouTuber, and podcaster Mckinney from the United Kingdom agreed to talk to Bored Panda about Joaquin Phoenix’s portrayal of perhaps the most infamous supervillain — Joker. Bored Panda asked Mckinney to share his opinion about what it is exactly that makes Joker an impactful, memorable, and powerful movie.
Joker isn’t a film about a misanthrope, it is a misanthropic movie. While there are vague notions of political subtext in the citizens of Gotham City — who are denounced as “clowns” by wealthy businessman Thomas Wayne (Brett Cullen) and then embrace the insult, deplorables-style, and begin wearing clown masks as they protest in the streets — any satire or social commentary is so tame.

Joker is a metaphor, a product of both a mentally ill man and a city that neglects him - Arthur is an influencer and conduit, but he's not the endgame. The Waynes are killed because of the clown movement, and the real Joker.
