Arthur Fleck lives in Gotham City. As a caretaker for his ailing mother, he also works as a clown and has dreams of being a stand-up comedian. Struggling with mental illness, he’s in a downward spiral as his mother’s own issues and society starts to close in on him. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Joker”.

· The first time Arthur and his mother are watching Murray Franklin’s show, the curtains draw back during the intro and Murray walks out. In the farther view, as he walks onto the stage, Murray is wearing his suit jacket unbuttoned. It cuts to a closer view as he starts his monologue and the jacket’s top button is fastened.

· Arthur is riding the subway when the three men start to harass him. The one wearing his green wig, drops it on the seat as they start beating Arthur on the floor of the subway. Arthur starts shooting, and, as the man runs away, the view of the subway shows the wig isn’t there. It can be seen for a short second on the floor as Arthur starts to get up. A few moments later, Arthur picks up the wig from the seat.

· Arthur is at Arkham Asylum trying to get the file on his mother. He reaches and grabs the file from the man at the desk and runs away. The rear view of him running down the hall shows the file is under his right arm. The scene cuts to a front view of him still running and the file is under his left arm.

· Arthur is on the way to appear on Murray Franklin’s show. He tosses his cigarette and is dancing down the outside steps. During the montage of him dancing, there is a quick view of him smoking the cigarette just before the cops call his name. He starts running and the cigarette is gone.

· CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! After murdering Murray Franklin, Arthur is in the back of the police car. The close-up view of him looking out the window shows the blue paint under his left eye runs past the corner of his lip. A little later, after the accident and he’s laying on top of the car’s hood, an overhead view of Arthur as he starts to cough shows the make-up is only smudged and reaches just above his lip.

· CAUTION: May Contain Spoilers! Arthur is standing on top of the police car’s hood. He smears the blood across his face. A view of the crowd behind him, over his right shoulder, shows a clown waving a baseball bat. He turns to face the crowd behind him, but the baseball bat isn’t there.

“Joker” (2019) stars Joaquin Phoenix, Robert DeNiro, Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Shea Whigham, and Bill Camp. It runs 122 minutes and is rated R for strong bloody violence, disturbing behavior, language and brief sexual images.
