I’m very, very happy to be announcing that I will be covering the prestigious and always exciting New York Film Festival this year. 2018 aims to be bigger and better than ever, with many surprises in store. Though very tightly curated and small compared to Toronto, for instance, or Cannes, New York always manages to pick the peak of the crop.
I saw Agnes Varda’s lovely multi-award-winning charming doc “Face Places” (“Visages Villages”) there last year and M. Varda was there, too.As well as the edgy, wonderful “Florida Project”, “Last Flag Flying” and many, many others.
And as the NYFF announces more of their films, I’ll be bringing them to you, too. On Awardsdaily.com, I’m very proud to saw.
Last year they had the wonderful “Wonder Struck” which I seemed to be the only person who was glad he saw it, but I loved it.
Dual story of two deaf children in different eras colliding in the Big Apple, with a devastating performance by Academy Award Winner Julianne Moore. It’s definitely worth checking out.
The NYFF also does not shy away from controversy and ended with Woody Allen’s beautiful, wonderful “Wonder Wheel” in which Kate Winslet’s magnificent star turn was not to be missed. Filmed at Coney Island by Vittoria Storaro, in dreamy saturated colors, it got unfairly lost in all the back-lash from the Me, too controversy, though it was not really involved in that fracas, except that Woody Allen directed it.
