Critics said this movie will promote violence and anarchy. Currently, I am seeing protestors in US reenacting scenes from the movie on news. How do you feel about Joker inspiring such acts in real life?

As extraordinary of a movie The Joker was I wouldn't really go as far as to say it has inspired violence and anarchy, especially in regards to current affairs.

I don't want to sound like I'm trying to discredit the film but over the course of the last few centuries there have been a plethora of riots documented all throughout history in various places of the world, and to say The Joker film is what inspired riots would be to disregard all history that came before the film.

No. The very best of what you could argue is that there is a correlation. But even that is a streach

Only in the sense that all it takes is a spark to ignite an inferno. Beyond that the similarities are slimmer. The Joker killed an unarmed man on television for selfish reasons and people took that as a call to anarchy. In reality, an unarmed man was killed on social media and people cried out against such behavior. In each instance the result was chaos, but the motivating factors were different.

No.

But, I didn't think it was good that the Joker movie didn't make it clear how horrible the evil was like in great stories such as The Godfather and Breaking Bad.

The movie was okay for what it was (6/10), but it was devoid of any hope.

Joker was just a film about a severely abused, mentally ill man who gave into despair. Nothing was interesting about him, so it wasn't worth putting that kind dark media out there.

Even his laugh was tied to his mental illness. It wasn't a sinister or captivating laugh like Mark Hamill's or Heath Ledger's Joker. Arthur Fleck wasn't funny. He looked like he was in his 40s but had the intelligence of a little kid.

As entertaining as The Dark Knight's charismatic, intelligent Joker was, it condemned and made clear how pathetic Joker's evil was.

I would have preferred that the Joker movie wasn't made, especially for its interpretation Thomas Wayne, and they just put the Dark Knight in all theaters again.

Absolutely not. The riots were a powderkeg of anxiety and stress over the quarantine, and one of the most deliberate and clear cases of police brutality in recent history with direct video evidence.

You are vastly overstating the cultural impact of Joker.

No. motivating factors behind each riot is different. The current riot that can be argued to be similar to joker's is not the one in US, but the one in Hong Kong, but even that riot has slowly transformed from scenario:'anger at upper-class' to scenario:'anger at china'

@tobeymaguire84: How stupid do you have to be in order to think that? If I were you, I would go to my room, and think about what I have done.

Life imitates art and vice versa.

that doesn't make the filmmakers responsible though.
