    3. toastingbread

      SPOLER ALERT: The end joke that joker plays on the audience is to trick you into thinking it was a good film.

    4. Debora Cyclone

      This man is a great genius, thanks for this masterpiece


      For some reason I’m practicing that slip

    6. Jada Smith

    7. aotphixion

    8. Atilio Escobar

      Born to play that role

      I loved the movie, I am a high functioning depressive and I felt how bad it was for him to transition to trying, distraught onto embracing his madness. Todd Philipps was amazing as well since I was always on the edge of my seat whenever I feel like Arthur is going violent. This is a masterpiece very few may appreciate.

    12. BK42 Channel

      What a class!!!

    13. Taolo Samuel

      This guy seems like a genuinely good director

    14. Rodolfo Rodriguez

    15. Santos

      I subscribed to your channel. Now the only thing I ask is to show 'Joker's full movie analysis by its director'.

    16. redhotchilifan98

      I hope the bluray has an entire commentary by Todd he blew me away with how good his directing was in the film such beautiful shots the cinematography had that gorgeous 70s grain to it I think this film is gonna make Todd very sought after

    17. Kieran Graham

      I like how much he cares, how much he thought about each individual scene. I think that’s why it was such a great movie.

    18. Brion McManus

      I lived in that part of Manhattan, 1973-1984 and very accurate. The movie will win Best Movie and eight other Academy Awards!

    19. Helenie Demir

      It’s been said a million times already that we all feel bad for Arthur in some way, you know, certain scenes and stuff, but to me, Phoenix’ voice really made me connect with the character. That kinda high pitch at moments like when he’s running after those kids and that “hey” comes out, I just want to burst into tears.

    20. Drunk Wolf

      Omg the water coming out of the flower, i had not noticed that. Awesome.

    21. MrBigT

      i'd love to know what films Todd watches

    22. jackie stroh

      What an incredible movie. And a complete mind f*ck! I have seen it twice and has me still thinking about it.... Excellent! Joaquin Phoenix is just brilliant. Oscar deserving!

    23. Mutaz Muhanad Hammad

      I want more!!!

    24. Matlockization

      This movie depicts a world were Democratic socialism reigns supreme.

      1. acedia.

        Um no. Crony capitalism if anything

    25. Two Three

      JOAQUER is Jokin' Phoenix

    26. KILO993

      It's crazy that he directed The Hangover movies (along with many other comedies) then War Dogs and finally this masterpiece.

    27. Hugo Maritz

      Good job. Loved your movie.

    28. Lázaro Murad

      Jared Leto just left the chat *awkward

    29. EliteMusikRU

      phoenix was great...u did nothing like the writers

    30. DmanDice

      This is when DC is at its best; not trying to be Marvel.

    31. ghadixsa

      God im so thankful for Todd’s existence....

    32. emir 97

      Too bad he didn't mention the Batman easter egg at 2:04

    33. Maya Goossens

      Bruh there are so much good comments underneath😂

    34. ghadixsa

      Todd is one of the best directors of all time

    35. TheNoobFlutistTM Ear Rape Recorder

      Tip of the hat for this guy, best movie of 2019!

    36. Dasan Jebashaker

      he's got a name!

    37. Jim joe Kelly

      I want a Gary stand alone movie

    38. Elisabeth

      fantastic movie !

    39. Taylor Robinson

      I haven't been excited to see a film in a while in theaters. I was so blown away watching this movie.

    40. Kevin Sorto

      What a genius.

    41. Kimmy J

      They did a great job, this film was a really tough watch

    42. Ring Neck

      Just when you thought Hollywood stopped making good films

    43. Liz K


    44. krish arts & photography

      Nice & Thanks :)

    45. Arya Panchal

      There are no cell phones in the movie.

      1. Moise Giulia

        Maybe because it's 1981


      Thank you Todd Phillips.

    47. Charles Iannini

      Loved the Due Date reffrence

    48. Timber Humphrey

      honestly, i think Todd should break down the entire movie

    49. Joanna K

      I'm really scared that any movie i see after Joker will appear to be trash

    50. adolf hitler

      Wow i didn't know how specific movie making is.

    51. Lonii High

      10/10 eazy

    52. Wolf Don’t care

      I think some of the critics hate this movie because it doesn’t mask anything over with fairy dust, this movie is a hundred percent raw and real. If they can’t handle it then they shouldn’t be watching nor should they be rating it 🤷‍♀️

    53. gausi khan

      The serious Taika Watiti....

    54. JustMax

      Why does he remind me of David Blain?

    55. killbot_factory

      Taxi Driver is a better Joker than Joker. just watch the original instead of the xerox copy

    56. Ben Detta

      That tear drop hurt. I felt it. Brilliant acting.

    57. Deluxery

      One of my favorite movies of all time!

    58. Alan M

      Please make a sequel

    59. A K

      Like jp said" you don't know what to expect in this movie"

    60. Martin Rioux

      Saddest thing about Arthur is that he has no friends, nobody to support him. He's not an evil guy in the beggining, he works hard and does the best he can with what he got. He even doesn't feed himself but feeds his mother. That's a hero to me. The people of Gotham made him what he is. He became the villain Gotham deserves.
