Joker reactions from TIFF call the film a “masterpiece”

Joker had its screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, and it seems another audience has been blown away by the film.

Following excellent reviews from its screening at the Venice Film Festival, and the subsequent winning of the Golden Lion award, Joker has now hit TIFF. The screening took place on Monday night, and it seems that it was another massive win for Joaquin Phoenix and Todd Phillips.

Not everyone, however, was quite as in love.

It does sound like if you aren’t super familiar with 1970s cinema, you may miss out on some of the influences. Luckily you still have a few weeks to do a deep dive on the relevant films.

Joker will hit theaters on Oct. 4.
