Joker has a memorable sequence in a rest room, however the Joaquin Phoenix movie needed to minimize one other one with a purpose to get an R-rating.
While talking to SBIFF Cinema Society, Joker director Todd Phillips defined that there have been a couple of scenes that he needed to minimize, probably the most notable of which was a scene had Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck doing one thing weird whereas inside a tub. What this was, the director didn’t absolutely clarify, but it surely appears as if the scene in query was meant to be extremely disturbing.
Usually, when a “Hard-R” film has to have a scene deleted from the theatrical launch with a purpose to get MPAA approval, it’s as a result of the scene in query is deemed pornographic. However, Todd Phillips urged that the scene that was eliminated will not be sexually express in nature, however is just too weird for the standard R-rated film to deal with. Here’s what he mentioned to SBIFF Cinema Society:
“So the other thing that’s great about Joaquin is that he’s always up to try things. So, we would finish our days early sometimes and we started doing this thing, Joaquin and I, we called it a study of insomnia. It was our own fun little thing, like ‘We have an hour left in the day, let’s light this kitchen, Joaquin let’s do something over by the sink or the fridge, and let’s just set up two cameras.’ [Larry Sher] would operate one, [Jeff Groth] would operate the other, and we would do these things — the fridge was one of those. It wasn’t in the script it was something that Joaquin just kind of did and there was a few others, there’s only one other that’s in the movie and it’s when he’s laughing after he goes to [Zazie Beetz’s] apartment and he comes back down the hall and he’s laughing alone in that living room, that was another one… There were two or three others we shot, one that is amazing in a bathtub, but I don’t think we can actually include it in an R-rated movie and it’s not because it was pornographic, it was just insane.”

The contents of the mysteriously-cut toilet scene is one thing that can doubtless curiosity followers of the R-rated character research, and hopefully it will get included as a deleted scene when Joker makes its method to residence video codecs. For now, we’ll simply have to invest what it was concerning the scene that might have given the MPAA pause.
Here is the official synopsis for Joker:
Director Todd Phillips’ Joker facilities across the iconic arch nemesis and is an unique, standalone fictional story not seen earlier than on the massive display. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck, who’s indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a person struggling to search out his means in Gotham’s fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comedian at night time…however finds the joke all the time appears to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one unhealthy choice that brings a couple of chain response of escalating occasions on this gritty character research.
Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham. The film will not be a part of the DC Extended Universe, and appears to play into Warner Bros.’s pursuits of creating creator-driven superhero motion pictures over essentially constructing a hyper-connected shared universe… At least in the interim.
Joker is now taking part in in theaters. Stay tuned for the newest information on the Joaquin Phoenix film!
