This was an amazing film. It adds a heart-wrenching sense of depth into the character of the Joker, by giving him a well-elaborated backstory, as well as establishing a darker incarnation of the DC supervillain, like with Heath Ledger's portrayal in The Dark Knight, while diving into his mental health. I also really liked the way it tackled the broken society of Gotham. The part where Arthur Fleck (Joker) is on a talk show hosted by Murray Franklin and him being so broken from the state of society that he ends up killing his own idol is a really shocking scene, and it leads to a hugely dramatic ending (along with a recreation of the Thomas and Martha murder scene).
