Cameron Bailey, artistic director of the Toronto International Film Festival, has already seen the film and recognized that the film deserves to belong to such prestigious festivals. "It's a very original version of the comic films and, in particular, the character of The Joker. It is not based on an existing story. He has one of the best actors in modern cinema, Joaquin Phoenix, as the protagonist, and Robert De Niro is also in it, one of the best actors that have ever existed, "Bailey explains in Toronto Sun.
According to the director, Joker has "an interesting tone", is set in the late 70s or early 80s and "seems to have done it back then." "His aesthetic is rough. He has references to Martin Scorsese's cinema and is a high-level film achievement. Although he works with very populist material, he is very ambitious. That is why he is part of the Galas," he concludes.
