You Owe It To Yourself To See Titane Knowing As Little As Possible [Fantastic Fest]

As someone who works as a writer and editor on a movie website, I tend to know at least a little bit about every movie we cover. Sometimes, news about upcoming movies slides across my desk. More often, I find myself editing reviews and spoiler posts about releases I have not yet had a chance to see. It's part of the job. It goes with the territory. I've long held the opinion that if a spoiler ruins the experience of seeing a film, that film has pretty major issues.

John Richmond RTW Spring 2022

This British designer didn’t let Milan’s lockdown get to him. With nowhere to travel to, and not much to visit, John Richmond turned inward, pondered his history, his loves — and his punk heart. “I looked at where I came from, my DNA. Lockdown gave me a time to stop and think,” he said.

NYFF 2021: The Tragedy of Macbeth, Festival Highlights | Features

For both the press and the public, this means proof of vaccination and mask wearing, but with the public returning to the festival’s accustomed venues at Lincoln Center. At the press screenings I attended, no concessions were sold and even water and coffee from outside were disallowed, as announcements at every screening sternly advised. While these minor inconveniences were easily accepted, it seemed to me that the numbers of people attending the screenings were less than in pre-pandemic times, perhaps because any critics still wary of entering the Walter Reade Theater in many cases have the option of watching films at home, via screener links. Having watched every film I reported on last year that way, I was glad to be watching this year’s films up on the big screen, surrounded by other cinephiles, even without coffee.

Movie Poster of the Week: The Posters of the 59th New York Film Festival

Since 2010, on the last Friday of every September, I have gathered all the posters for the films in the main slate of the New York Film Festival. Last year, six months into the pandemic, I didn’t do it. There was a New York Film Festival, and there was a main slate, but with most of the films only screening online, it just didn’t seem like the real thing and my heart wasn’t in it. This year the NYFF is back and entirely IRL and, although we’re still not out of the pandemic woods, I feel that the wonderful new poster for Jonas Poher Rasmussen’s Flee is emblematic of the moment: people, lots of them, (vaccinated, hopefully), coming together.
