Since the release of Joker, Joaquin Phoenix has been heaped with praise for his unsettling performance as the film's protagonist, Arthur Fleck.

 

In particular, he has received plaudits for the way in which he captures the feeling of isolation experienced by those misunderstood by wider society.

 

But one man who is especially well-placed to appraise Phoenix's performance is Scott Lotan, who lives with a pathological laughing disorder much like Fleck's.

 

For Mr Lotan, who hails from Virginia Beach, USA, the pseudobulbar affect (or PBA) is a symptom of his multiple sclerosis which causes him to have laughing episodes that can last up to 10 minutes.

Wow. And we think we have it hard. What a fate. How completely bizarre. Joker was amazing. A blazing statement against law enforcement, the overly entitled, the super rich, government and society. The last 45 minutes of the film was astonishing.
