I think it’s only fair to say that using the comic premise was an apt excuse to focus on a tale of a person’s struggle of purpose in existence.
Joaquin Phoenix is exceptional.
The only scene I didn’t necessarily like was his visit to Wayne’s house and encounter with little Bruce.
“Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?”
We live in a world that is facing an epidemic of loneliness.
With so much freedom, we fail to choose what’s best for us.
Joker has chosen.
And he’s laughing his way to the bank.
This morning I woke up and I have Prefab Sprout’s All The World Loves Lovers playing in my head.
It’s been quite a few months journey since I lost the love of my life – not that she has passed away but she has completely ghosted me and vanished from my reality.
As I look back to my first ever solid experience of a romantic love relationship – I am very glad I did it all the way, all to my truest self, the best that I can. I have loved truthfully, wholeheartedly, not a single cheat day that I loved any less than I am capable of. I committed myself through every hardship and joyful moments within the relationship. I realised every ideals – the fights, the conversations, the growth of dreams and potential.
I have created this prototype as a lover and for love – a standard I set never below myself. And today I woke up with a smile.
All the world loves lovers.
And may we never love any less than what we always wish we truly receive.
