Is this incel thing a north american thing?

I haven't really checked if this is a worldwide thing.
I think them congregating in online groups is a uniquely north american thing. The whole not getting laid thing though, I think is also pretty common in both Asia and the middle. Asian men tend to suffer in silence and turn to some weird shit (weirdo japanese culture is basically pure escapism from not getting laid) and I don't even want to get started on arabic culture and their approach to sex.

Is if freudian when almost all of their weird cultural shit is sexual in nature? Vending machines with school girl pantries, highly sexualized anime, etc

I think you're right in that sense.

I also don't think making a joker movie idolizing incels is the best thing for 2019

The Joker isn't an Incel though is he? He's an Anarchist no?
Heath ledgers joker was a anarchist, agent of chaos, murderer at random.

Phoenix is a lot closer to a incel from what I can tell. Feeling rejected by society, picked on, beat up, failure at work, only his aging mother seems to love him, and then he snaps and lashes out of society and some people love him for it.

The underlying message here is dark.

That’s not really a new film concept though, is it?

No.

This isn't a small film though, it is a blockbuster DC film with a popular character and mass advertising. And everyone is saying Phoenix does a great job in it.

My question is whether its a good film or be promoting in 2019 with the incels of the world already running down people with vans

I dont forsee an uprising from incels coming from this film

You say this now, but before you know it you'll look over one day and see an angry disaffected clown with ill-intent staring in at you through your window. And you'll say to yourself, "goddamn it, why didn't I listen to Altair's warning while I had the chance?"

Rotten Tomatoes gave the last one 38% and I enjoyed it as well so I always take reviews with a grain of salt

"Hustlers" is getting great reviews, but it's poorly paced. J-Lo is pretty good. One of her best roles. It could have been far better with that story. They made it a dull movie about hot strippers which is hard to do.

In a world with porn hub, strippers are inherently boring.
