The 48th Annual NYFF

For those of you out there who care about such things (and really, that should be all of you) over the next few weeks I will be posting about the New York Film Festival (or NYFF as it will be called from here on out). Press screenings just got under way and yours truly shall be reporting from some of these screenings.  I will only be able to make it up to a few screenings though (due to financial and practical reasons both - a dilemna  anyone  who writes about cinema but is not making a living at it can surely understand!),but what I do see, you will surely read about right here in these so-called pages.  There will be reports on new films from such auteurs as Abbas Kiarostami, Kelly Reichardt, Mike Leigh, Masahiro Shinoda and Apichatpong Weerasethakul.  My first post (hopefully tomorrow or the next day coming) will be on the 1964 Japanese New Wave film Pale Flower, from Masahiro Shinoda (part of NYFF's Masterworks Series).  Until then.....
