Noel T. Manning II is a member of the CCA and the NCFCA and is also the host of the television program and radio show Meet Me at the Movies. As a film-fest co-founder and adjunct professor of communications, he’s constantly digging into the world of cinema, which often involves chatting with principle individuals involved in various aspects of the filmmaking industry.
Ordinarily Elements of Madness focuses on content which is strictly film-focused. However, given the discussion going on surrounding the release of director Todd Phillips’s Joker, it seems like a good time to talk to someone who can provide a psychological perspective at the infamous villain. In that vein, here is an interview with Dr. Travis Langley, author of many books examining pop culture and the psychological elements within.
Dr. Travis Langley is the author/editor for “The Joker: Evil Clowns and the Women Who Love Them”. Here, he talks about the origins of the Joker, the psychology of the criminal clown and where the future of the pale-faced mastermind is headed.
