    NYFF Film Review: ‘Non-Fiction’ Lives In Its Ensemble and Its Simplicity

    2018 NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL: Charm and satire are wonderfully intertwined in Olivier Assayas‘ cleverly constructed foreign piece “Non-Fiction.”  Assembling a thunderous cast that includes Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche, Guillaume Canet, Vincent Macaigne, and Nora Hamzawi, this prickly yet enjoyable ensemble elevates a simple enough story about the changing world of literature as the […] More

    NYFF Film Review: ‘The Favourite’ Has Bite Thanks To Olivia Colman’s Menacing Performance

    2018 NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL: Yorgos Lanthimos shocked the cinematic world with his darkly comedic film “The Lobster” in 2015 before turning some heads in 2017 with “The Killing of a Sacred Deer.”  His signature deadpan deliveries and uniquely rich directions are on full display with his new period piece “The Favourite.”  Showing no remorse […] More

    NYFF Film Review: ‘A Faithful Man’ is a Witty Romantic Comedy with a French Twist

    What sounds more like a French film festival outing than a romantic comedy centered around infidelity? In the wrong hands, this movie could have been a parody of itself. Luckily, “A Faithful Man” has a light touch. Actor/filmmaker Louis Garrel never takes things too seriously here, which works in his favor. This New York Film […] More

    NYFF Film Review: ‘Ray & Liz’ is a Punishing Experience

    2018 NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL: Oppressively sad cinema can bring about some incredibly strong emotions. Mainly when the filmmaker is depicting painful moments from their lives, that can be a moving experience.

    NYFF Film Review: ‘The Other Side of the Wind’ is a Curiosity for a Particular Kind of Cinephile

    2018 NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL: Admitting that the feeling of being able to say to the nearest cinephile that you just saw the newest Orson Welles movie in 2018 plays heavily into watching “The Other Side of the Wind” is an understatement.  Decades have passed since the height of the writer/director’s time, and the possibility […] More

    NYFF Film Review: ‘Wildlife’ Gets the Best out of Carey Mulligan and Ed Oxenbould

    2018 NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL: Directorial debuts have not had such an assurance in framing and messaging as we see in Paul Dano‘s highly effective “Wildlife.”  Taking a hard, and deeply felt look into divorce and its interpretations through the eyes of a child, Dano magnifies the source material by pulling out extraordinary performances from his […] More
