    I really dislike the theory that "everything was fake". It would ruin the movie for me if that were true and it's just a dumb easy argument to make. I've seen similar theories about Fight Club that I dislike too.
    I have a different theory that goes along well with what the DC comic book Joker is really like.
    Mine is that all parts where you feel sorry for him are fake.
    For example, he was never jumped and got the sign stolen from him at the beginning of the movie. He stole it for no reason, like how his boss accused him.
    His coworker never gave him the gun, he tried to buy it off him like his how coworker also accused him. (He must've got a gun from somewhere else.)
    This one is a bit tricky but I also think that he never was abused by his mom and his mom never claimed that he was Wayne's son either. However, this one is a bit trickier to get around because you hear other characters talking about his mom, like the man in Arkham and Thomas Wayne.
    I don't think Joker was ever mentally ill and he was simply an evil guy, like how he is in the comics and how he was in Christopher Nolan's version of him in the Dark Knight.
    If that is the case, then his therapist was fake and he was never on prescription pills to begin with.
    I think that what were seeing in the sob moments of the movie are similar to the sob stories Christopher Nolan's Joker made up in The Dark Knight, and that none of them are true.
    I know Christopher Nolan's Joker is a completely different character than Joaquin's Joker, but the idea of Joker having made up origin stories is not something new to the Joker.
    He might've not have even been beaten up by the Wallstreet guys in the train before he killed them.
    I do think that he did kill all the people he killed, did start a riot, and did dance on the police car with all the people in joker masks Praising him.
    I think everything at the end when he is fully the Joker was real.
    I think he is telling the fake origin sob story to the therapist at the end of the movie, but that he was arrested and put in Arkham for everything he did- because all those evil parts was real.
    A lot of Oscar voters didn't like the movie because they think that we're supposed to feel sorry for the Joker. I disagree with that because I think since were seeing this movie from the Joker's POV and false origin story, he depicts the world to be a more evil place than it actually is, and that all parts where you feel sorry for him were fake.
    I would like my theory to be right because I really the second half of the movie when he was the Joker. It would be a bummer if that were all fake.
    I like how in Christopher Nolan's Joker and other comic book versions of the Joker, the Joker is actually a relativity smart guy but just plain evil, wanting to bring chaos to Gotham for fuzzy unclear reasons that have to do with philosophical arguments of morality. If my theory is correct, then Joaquin's Joker is also this. And he got what he wanted in the end of the movie, which makes him the perfect anti-hero.

            First, anyone watching this saw the film. We don't need a scene by scene recap, certainly not if it pushes your video over 20 minutes.

            Second, all of the parts that were Arthur's fantasies were clearly exposed. "It was all a dream" is about the cheapest plot device ever invented, this film is better than that. If you want to start questioning the nature of consensus reality, you can't even prove the fucking movie even exists.

                    I love how in Joker, it’s pretty clear what’s a fantasy and what’s reality until Arthur is taken off his meds. Makes me think that he could also be certain about his fantasies while medicated, and becomes just as uncertain about what’s going on as the audience when he’s unmedicated. Love this movie.

                          Didn't the therapist talk about Arthur being locked up in an asylum at the beginning of the movie?
                          When asked about why, he responded with something like: "who knows" and they show him in that room, banging his head against the door.
                          What was that about?
                          If that really happened, who would have taken care of his mom? She got put in the hospital because cops visited her home. How would she survive her son getting locked up in a mental hospital? And they never told us why he was.
                          Was that fake, or was it the first hint that all of this might be fake, and that he's crazy and delusional?
                          I didn't quite get that.

                                                See, I got up to 1:55 and then stopped watching. Because although I appreciate people thinking about the movie in different ways, I don’t want my interpretation to be ruined. Because I know that I’ll watch this video and think afterwards “oh maybe that was it” and then I’ll spend to much time thinking about it even though I already had these thoughts after the film.😂

                                                  Nooo man. In his big speech, the question is "what do you get when you cross a loner with a *society* thay abandona him?"

                                                  "We live in a society" is another huge joker reference

                                                    In the last scene when he talks with his new Social worker he has his normal brown hair and no longer has green hair color
                                                    I guess that implies that everything (at least with the green hair) was just in his mind

                                                                I view most stories in general through the philosophy of death of the author, which to put simply is a form of literalism applied to interpreting stories. When you write a story, make a movie, whatever it is, then once you finish it, that story exists on its own regardless of the author, and that author's interpretation is no less or more valid than anyone else's/the consensus of others (unless they're clearly incorrect in some objective way). So, if you intend to tell something, and you tell it so poorly that most other average people either do or could reasonably view it another way, that says something about your writing ability in a way.

                                                                I find this type of approach extremely useful for cases like Joker, because when you start to get into questions like, who really is Arthur, what does he or whoever Joker is intend, what's real or not, what clues and easter eggs can we hunt for, you start to get into extremely esoteric and abstract discussions, and ultimately begin to re-write the story for yourself or for others in ways that the movie doesn't actually depict.

                                                                I view this movie as literally Joker's origin, because that's what the movie depicts, and the bits in the movie that aren't real are very plainly shown to not be real (when he realizes he made up his relationship with Sophie, for example). I view the whole "multiple choice" origin thing as more of a plot device than anything, so that the character can be written into any story for that individual writer's purposes, and I think Joker is a cool enough character that for whatever universe that story takes place in, he deserves a genuine defined origin. This is a great movie and I hate endings where "none of it was real after all" happen, so, I choose to not view it that way.

                                                                                  • Sean Miller

Does he stay there and in his head while he is dying by freezing the rest of the movie is played out in his head?

                                                                                    • Alexander Kopoev

                                                                                      • Barak Michael Shmuel

                                                                                        1)Sofia - obvious they show it.
                                                                                        2) The obvious part when he does his jokes and the people laugh ( we see later from the screen they don't laugh)
                                                                                        3)When he enter the fridge.
                                                                                        4)The police car accident and the ending where he kills the lady and walk with blood on the shows (the way he runs from one way to another and another person chase him like if its a comedy movie).

                                                                                        *There could be more, or it could be changed, some are true and some are not, or we will just never know and its changes from one to another :)
