Arthur didn't k*ll anyone bcuz of mental issues. He k*lled people bcuz they wronged him. And havin mental issues doesn't make someone insane. He wasn't insane. He k*lled out of anger. His mental issues is a side topic. Had people not fucced him over, he would not have harmed them. He was very aware of who he harmed and did it out of revenge, not insanity.

I don't see the comparison between the 2 movies either because the dude in Falling Down was just a bully. Arthur was just out for justice against those that wronged him.

It's bully vs victim
You're basically saying the same thing I'm saying but using different words.

You call Arthur a victim, but he still was not mentally stable to function in society normally.

And you say Foster was a bully but my point was just that he was sane while doing so.

We'll just have to agree to disagree.

Being a victim has nothin to do with being mentally stable or not. Arthur was a victim bcuz of what people did to him. He was justified in his actions rather we agree with his response or not. That's my point.

The guy from Falling Down was not justified for what he was doin. He was disrespecting people that had did nothin to him. That's the difference. He had no aim and no justification for his actions.

That's why it's 2 completely different movies. Arthur had legit reason for gettin at the people that he got at. The guy from Fallin Down didn't have no reason for goin at people he went at. He was just being a jerk.

Like I said, agree to disagree.

Because my original point was only about sane vs insane.

Whether or not one was justified in their actions and the other wasn't is a matter of personal opinion anyway.

Which again wasn't my initial point.

And I'm sayin that Arthur is not insane. Havin some mental isssues doesn't make someone insane. And his actions had nothin to do with his mental issues. The movies are different bcuz one is justified for his actions and the other one isn't.

The textbook definition states otherwise.

adjective
1.
in a state of mind which prevents normal perception, behavior, or social interaction; seriously mentally ill.
"he had gone insane"

All of which Arthur suffered from

That's not Arthur. He was actually more sane than the guy in Falling Down. Arthur's actions from gainin access to Arkham records to discover truth, sneakin into that auditorium to chat with Thomas Wayne, knowing to let the midget live cuz he was good to him, out maneuvering cops on a crowded subway, etc are not the mark of someone who is insane.

Just cuz you disagree with someone's actions doesn't make them insane. Just cuz someone has a medical condition does not make them insane. Just cuz someone is shy does not make them insane. Gettin revenge on people does not make them insane either.

I guess you must of been watching a different film, because that definition I provided clearly demonstrates how the Joker was acting the entire the film

But you got it though, you clearly want to sit up here argue facts.

I'm not about to do that tonight.

Same way I found usual suspects. When I first started smoking I stumbled on it didn't feel like looking for the remote bumped into a classic
I did the same with There Will Be Blood

All I stated was facts. You just misunderstood the movie and think that anyone that doesn't fall in line is insane.

Love this sh*t. I have an extremely twisted sense of humor so I won't lie, this movie makes me laugh throughout and Douglas is great here as always.

Arthur was not a crazed maniac. He was gettin sh*tted on by people and decided to f*ghtback and get payback on those that had wronged him. The guy in Falling Down was actually more crazy and in the wrong than Arthur was. Dude from Fallin Down was straight up bullying people that had done nothin to him. Arthur was actually an angel that just decided to go out and get justice against the evil.
How was he a bully..??? he almost got robbed and stabbed by 3 mexicans.. for an empty brief case. And then they tried to do a drive by on him and it back fired on them.. and still when the drive by failed and they crashed and flipped the car.... he could have k*lled them all.. and he did not..he just took the duffle bag full of guns and walked off.......

I can specifically remember him bullying those people at the fast food restaurant and bullying that construction worker, almost k*llin some contruction workers for no reason when he fired that bazooka. Don't get me wrong, I like the movie, I just don't it should be compared to Joker like some people have beem doin.

I own the movie and watch it from time to time but I personally don't think it's close to being one if the greatest movies of all time. To me it's a cult classic and one of my favorites
