Joker (2019) Psychology Analysis
Arthur Fleck was just a man trying to be a happy clown in an unhappy world. Where did it all go wrong? In this episode we will take a look at the complex psychology of the 2019 Joker, and see how this movie illustrates a very rare and complex diagnosis. We will also do a character analysis of Joker with Carl Jung’s theory of archetypes to see what he tells us about American psychology.
