In Gotham City, mentally troubled comedian Arthur Fleck is disregarded and mistreated by society. He then embarks on a downward spiral of revolution and bloody crime. This path brings him face-to-face with his alter-ego: the Joker.
Arthur Fleck works as a clown and is an aspiring stand-up comic. He has mental health issues, part of which involves uncontrollable laughter. Times are tough and, due to his issues and occupation, Arthur has an even worse time than most. Over time these issues bear down on him, shaping his actions, making him ultimately take on the persona he is more known as...Joker.Written by
When Arthur is taking a smoke break outside the hospital and the detectives confront him, he gets up and tries to re-enter the hospital, but the automatic door doesn't open. Arthur waves frantically at the motion sensor atop the door trying to get it to open. However, motion-sensing automatic doors were extremely uncommon in 1981; the older bottom mat weight sensor-based "supermarket door" style would have been prevalent for automatic doors. See more »

Outstanding movie with a haunting performance and best character development ever seen
Every once in a while a movie comes, that truly makes an impact. Joaquin's performance and scenography in all it's brilliance. Grotesque, haunting and cringy. Hard to watch at times,... but so mesmerizing, you won't blink an eye watching it. Tragic, but with seriously funny moments. Emotional rollercoaster - sometimes, with multiple emotions popping-up at the same time.
this is far from a typical action-riddled predictable super-hero movie - it's a proper psychological thriller/drama, with the single best character development I have ever seen.
