Unpopular opinion time! #Joker
Although I thought the movie was good, it sends the wrong message in the end! Yes it shows how the system fails him at every step. And yes it shows mental illness in a way I have only seen in mental hospitals and in myself. but the movie ultimately ends with him 1) going off his meds. 2) killing someone (hallucination or not)
then 3) the is celebrated for it all! And before you say it yes he landed back in the hospital. But the. again he had to to be the true joker!
As a schizophrenic being celebrated for going off your meds and giving in to your delusions is not the right message to send!!! For those of you who read this I know you probably disagree, so bring it on! I am ready to defend my statement
