A run-down bathroom with a flickering fluorescent light, a swooning piece of music and some slow, deliberate moves. Those spare ingredients go into crafting this downbeat but memorable moment from “Joker.”
When the scene begins, Arthur Fleck (a.k.a. the Joker, played by Joaquin Phoenix) has just had an intense, life-defining moment and finds a bathroom to collect and calm himself. He does so with a dance that the director Todd Phillips said Phoenix came up with on the day of the shoot. In his narration, Phillips discusses the music (by Hildur Gudnadottir), and how he and Phoenix came to change the scene from what was in the script.

This movie wonderfully shows how everybody are born kind and compassionate but bullied and broken down to seek refuge in indifference. This movie will have a profound impact on the way we look at the world and others. Everybody is battling against something. So take a moment to show some care and decency. This movie deserves Oscar.

I liked the scene but I think that it could be a little different. Like, Arthur goes into the bathroom, looks at the mirror like "what have I done" and stares at it for a moment and then starts to dance.

Hey people I usually don't ask for likes but help my comment get to the top if you can so others can see this and to also know bout JP past childhood as well. It's bout the dance scenes in the Joker. So basically like director said this whole scene is improvised cause they originally had the Joker come into the bathroom to clean himself up and then leave. But come to find out JP grew up in an poor family. Well, not actually poor they was more so hippies during the 60s who ended up joining an cult and then moving to San Juan, Puerto Rico to grow and spread their cult there. But eventually they left cause the cult cause it wasn't good for there kids being around people like that. So yes, JP isn't even American and he grew up with hippie parents which is why he's probably vegan. His family was poor since they was in an cult and had no where to live. So what they would do is have their kids (they had 5 all together one who died of drug OD) dance/be street performers to earn money so they can at least have an meal to eat by the end so they can eat as an family. So JP dancing in Joker comes from his past childhood and him having to dance on the streets of San Juan, Puerto Rico for food and money during the late 70s/80s. I knew his dancing look like that of hippie dancing or dance moves from 70s/80s. I'm pretty sure Todd didn't bring this up since it's an family isusue for JP but man finding this out and seeing how he just dance at times as the Joker made him bring the character to life even more. Just search up JP tragic past here on 4Strefa or search it up. It's like an 10 min video bout his past and childhood here on 4Strefa.

Wasn't great. Wasn't terrible. Definitely strange. Keep in mind. This is the Joker.. The freaking Joker.. They made him a normal, everyday, washout that happens to be psychotic. Gave him a 38 and face paint. Dropped ball....

What makes me happy Gary Glitter will not be getting royalties from the film for the song Rock n Roll part 2 because he does not have the rights to it anymore.

Besides the fact how maginificent this movie was, I left the theatre confident that people are going to think about Heath ledger's joker. These are my thoughts: Do not compare both of them , since they both played the joker character accordingly true to their timeline and how they sinked into their madness. The latter was all about his origin and how he slowly embraced the joker inside of him because of the toxic society. Heath's Joker was years ahead where he portrays a well established psychopathic relentless criminal with no emotions for anyone. Looking for the punch line?... 🤡
