Remember how Jared Leto’s Joker had the word “damaged” tattooed on his forehead? Remember when Jack Nicholson’s Joker snickered “you can’t make an omelet … without breaking some eggs” and punctuated it by smashing Jerry Hall’s mask with his fist? Remember when Heath Ledger’s Joker gleefully made a pencil “disappear”? Yeah, well, nothing like that happens in Todd Phillips’ Joker.

Until the final act, that is, when Joaquin Phoenix’s take on the character fully emerges from the seriously screwed up chrysalis of his everyday Arthur Fleck persona. Before that moment, there is nothing celebratory or calculated or even particularly absurd about his incremental acts of violence — something readers of the notorious leaked Joker script noted. “It’s so realistic!” went the excited refrain on Reddit threads dedicated to parsing the document, and while some aspects have changed from that draft of the screenplay, a grimy, grounded nature a million miles removed from capes or catwomen or vats of acid remains in the film that screened at Venice Film Festival. Unstable, unlovable, and antisocial as Fleck is, there is no preternatural evil inside of him, just frustrated longing and mental illness. It’s the world outside of Fleck’s mind that is malevolent — a world that, as Arthur says to his case worker, “is getting worse.”
