I hear you on Phillips in front of the camera. I really do. Regardless of his viewpoint, he is terribly pompous. However don't undercut the mental health aspect of the film, the fact that society's classism rarely focuses on race first, or the fact that Joker to me did not come off as a hero. Like most dynamic villains in comics, there is a kernel of validity to their plight, but their means of change are despicable and as they continue to embrace their tactics, most people fall away because that moral line is crossed. I feel those lines are crystal clear in this film. Some people still follow, which is why they usually have goons/disciples/supporters. Also, he wasn't just an incel. He was clinically delusional, a tactic used heavily in cinema because of the ability to create the visual trick. It's easy to dismiss or ignore some of those plot points to support your slant because you have a personal distaste for the director. Don't fall into that trap. I look forward to my comments being deleted.
