“There’s so many different ways of looking at it – You can either say here’s somebody who, like everybody, needed to be heard and understood and to have a voice. Or you can say this is somebody that disproportionately needs a large quantity of people to be fixated on him. His satisfaction comes as he stands in amongst the madness.” – Phoenix for Vanity Fair, on Arthur Fleck/Joker character.
