          For anyone surprised about the “Phoenix lost 50 pounds for the joker” thing i have some news for you. He actually lost only 15 and not 50 pounds!

            Theory Buster: it all actually happened.
            Joker may be an unreliable narrator but the story included the hidden to his eyes killing of the Waynes, during the Clown Uprising, which would create Batman. Joker doesn’t know they’re killed, he doesn’t know Bruce is Batman. Unless Batman, The League of Shadows (which might have been poisoning the water and causing increased violence in Gotham or trying to break it down economically, as were suggested in Dark Night, Bane, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, et al are ALL part of an ongoing fantasy. The only way the events, other than the girlfriend, are a fantasy is if Batman, and therefore the entire DC universe is a fantasy.

                if everything was a fantasy then this movie was not a origin story of Joker. therefore it has no point and its existance is meaningless.

                everything happened in his head is a very dumb & common theory.

                          There is another reference you missed (at least in the Italian version of the movie I saw). When the Waynes are exiting the movie theater the other film on the billboard is Blow up, a famous movie by Michelangelo Antonioni in which masked and clowning protesters invade the street of London, creating a surreal atmosphere. Or maybe it was Blow out from 1981...and I’ll probably go to the theatre for the third time to check it out.

                                The whole Thomas Wayne affair thing is super obvious, “You have a pretty smile” is a pretty tame compliment, so it stands to reason that he did actually write that on the photo, and Penny birthed an entire lifetime of fantasy from that one instance, kind of like how Arthur has a short conversation with Sophie and creates his own fantasy relationship from that.

                                Also Penny’s character seems super inspired by Mrs. Goldfarb from Requiem for a Dream and I love it~

                                        I caught the A. Fleck thing but upon thinking about it, Joaquin Phoenix's ex brother in law and good friend is Casey Affleck. Also, you missed that Joaquin did the tongue flick similar to that of Heath's.

                                                      Not because some things were his own fantasy means he is an unreliable narrator and everything is made up.

                                                      Mentally unstable people live in a world were reality and fantasy is mixed. Even among sane children, this is pretty common.

                                                      I did my practice in a mental institution. When you read a patient background, actually, their fantasies make sense. You just need to separate what is not real, what is and how that fantasy play in the context of their condition.

                                                        I'm surprised that NR missed the beginning nod to Christopher Nolan. On the announcements over the radio that Arthur is listening to they talked about Nolan Ave.
