Critic Lisa Nesselson speaks to Eve Jackson about the week’s releases, including her disappointment at "Joker" starring Joaquin Phoenix. She also discusses the significant experiment of Ang Lee's "Gemini Man", starring Will Smith as a 51-year-old hitman as well as a digital version of himself, a 23-year-old clone.
They also chat about the French film "On a Magical Night" from Christophe Honoré, which stars Chiara Mastroianni as a married Paris law school professor who sleeps with young men for recreation, plus the restored silent classic "The Man Who Laughs" which is released in France this week.
