Josh Brolin Appreciates The Concept Behind Joker

0 195

Josh Brolin, the deadliest villain Thanos from Avengers: Endgame, just appreciated Joker Movie and we agree to every single word he said. He did not just appreciate the movie, he has also defended the fiery concept behind Joker. Josh Brolin, the infamous villain, has also addressed the critics in his lengthy Instagram post. And explained why Joaquin Phoenix’s character represents everyone in the world.

Josh Brolin Defends Joker Movie

Josh Brolin starts the appreciation post by highlighting an important factor. As per Brolin, you can appreciate Joker if you have faced trauma in your life. Or, if you understand what true compassion actually is. If you have seen Joker, you will agree to it as well. Almost, most of us have faced traumas or tragedies in life. And how compassionate people change their world after facing something traumatic.

 

To appreciate “Joker” I believe you have to have either gone through something traumatic in your lifetime (and I believe most of us have) or understand somewhere in your psyche what true compassion is (which usually comes from having gone through something traumatic, unfortunately).

Josh Brolin defends the moviemakers by calling it dangerous compassion for representing the human psyche. The human psyche is raw, fragile and brutal and the movie makes you question the violence around you. It also highlights the mental health-related issues which are becoming out of control with the passage of time.

An example of dangerous compassion would be to, say, make a film made about the fragility of the human psyche, and make it so raw, so brutal, so balletic that by the time you leave the theatre you not only don’t want to hurt anything but you desperately want an answer and a solution to the violence and mental health issues that have spun out of control around us.

Explaining The Irony Of Trauma

Even though most of the critics are just appreciating the Joaquin Phoenix’s performance only, they are forgetting the message behind the Joker movie. Josh Brolin’s Instagram post also helps in understanding the trauma and pain caused by Joker. The world does not want to change unless it starts hurting. Everyone wants to live in their happy bubble of life and they do not care about what’s happening outside unless it starts hurting them as well. Joker also challenges your selfishness and justifications of your behavior.

This film makes you hurt and only in pain do we ever want to change. It’s all in the irony of trauma — a fine line between the resentment of wanting to hurt society back for raping you of a decent life, for not protecting you, and accepting what feels like alien feelings with softening to those others who seem freakish in our era of judgment, and digital damnation.

 

In the end, Thanos perfectly wraps up his defense in favor of Joker. He also narrates in his own words, how Joker is highlighting the elephant in the room which you cannot ignore anymore.

Like kids in Middle School: man, they can just be mean. For no reason. And, sometimes, those awful little clicky kids breed an evil in someone that rages much later, when everyone pretends we are all back to normal, when we all thought it had just manned up and gone away.
We have a habit of hating and ostracizing and dividing and sweeping our problems under the rug. Joker, is simply lifting the rug and looking underneath it. Nothing more. Nothing less. It’s there.
