He becomes a man, in a very sad way. It protects Arthur from the outside world, as it pulls him back into his inner abyss, curling into himself. The revelation at the hospital is a moment of awakening, not only to the facts but also of the childhood programming. Good stuff, and the best performance I've seen on film since Precious. I was not interested in an action movie solely focused on the bad guy, especially given that I liked Batman. Parents not only form a large part of our perception of the universe, but also that of ourselves.

What happens to a soul constantly maligned, constantly lied to, and where even an embrace is a lie? And the crazy laughter: an overflow of the reactive defense, a scream of that satisfies Mom, and simultaneously repels her and others.
