The origin of one of Batman’s primary antagonists is dramatized in director Todd Phillips’ JOKER. Joaquin Phoenix stars as a mentally troubled clown and aspiring comedian who finds his identity by turning to nihilism and violent crime.

In recommendations, Mark Pfeiffer picks Mystery Science Theater 3000’s The Great Cheesy Movie Circus tour. Paul Markoff selects Henry Selick’s stop-motion animated CORALINE, which tells a story about a girl who discovers an alternate world behind the door in her new home.
