The Joker score is pretty much just simply underlining what's very dark and difficult about it. Therfore, it is not enriching but just penetrating the experience. And that's what I didn't like about it.


Not that writing a "compassionate" score is the only alternative, of course. Taxi Driver is a very rich score, for example, that does so much. It gives the down to earth bustle of NYC a larger than life presence as Bickle's manifested hell and purgatory. The theme has a longing for innocence and romance that is like a landmark we hear to see just how far Bickle's plummet into madness goes, until the theme itself drops down with him at the climax.


For Joker, I thought it would've been really cool if they took an approach similar to Shirley Walker in the animated series:



The juxtaposition between the sitcom breeziness of the music with Arthur's increasing disillusionment and insanity would've been so badass!
