Joker Was a Major Hit at the Box Office
Joker is a crime thriller movie starring many top-of-the-order actors like Joaquin Phoenix as Arthur Fleck, Robert De Niro as Murray, and others. In the movie, the scene is set in 1981, where Arthur Fleck tries to pursue his career being a clown, which he miserably fails at, as he brings a gun to an occasion and gets fired for it. The failed society and corruption in the city was the main reason why Fleck broke down, succumbing to his mental illness, losing all rationality, and killing whoever blocks his path or makes fun of him. The movie was released on August 2019 and was declared one of the best movies of the year.
