    ★★★½

    It’s a metaphor for how all these diversity hires are predatory and still trapping black people in the same roles—as set dressing, as trained animals for shots, as gimmicks like chimps on a sitcom (or MADTV 😉).

    Gordy finally broke, lost it after having to be a caged animal for so long, shuck and jive on command.

    But what hurt more was the audience I was with. 

    Joker depicts a society that is broken. One not too far from the truth. 

    Joker is a man who, albeit mentally ill, begins to thrive when he gives into his delusional psychosis and creates havoc in this broken society by murdering, rioting, and gaining notoriety via inciting violence in a city hungry for change and improvement, one disillusioned…
