The second view is a bit more complicated. On the one hand, it is quite right to point out that a movie can have extremely negative effects on someone who is inherently vulnerable. Joker has themes and images filled with violence, revenge, loneliness, anger, masculinity, and many other things – all of which can be misinterpreted. But is that a reason to criticize, condemn, and boycott the film? This puts the film at risk of censorship and who can see it, reminding us of the BBFC ban of “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” because it was rated as “every which suits middle-class viewers … but what if a factory worker in Manchester goes to see it? “. This situation is similar to the reactions we often encounter when it comes to violent video games, even though research has confirmed that there is no link between the game and violence or aggression.
