The film certainly would give hope and encouragment to those who feel they have lost everything.

Joker becomes a sort of hero to the down trodden. I wouldnt say the film glorifies violence but it does suggest it as an option to fight back.

To be fair they didnt even need to link it to Batman, would have been a great film without needing the Batman nods and refs.

I saw it last night, its like a cross between the King of Comedy and Taxidriver. I love Christopher Nolans Batman trilogy, which are actually very right leaning, I felt that Ledgers Joker was better not having a backstory, now they turned the Joker into a loser, even his manic laugh is just a nervous condition not the sign of diabolical genius.
I give it 7/10.
