Starting this week, Press and Industry screenings (better known around town as P&I screenings) will begin for the 60th New York Film Festival. NYFF presumably will be more or less back to normal this year, even if screenings will again be more spaced out. As always, the fest is another opportunity to appreciate the most prestigious movies of the season. Hot on the heels of the Toronto International Film Festival for me (and a little before that, the Telluride Film Festival), New York is very much a homecoming for me. After TIFF, NYFF will seem positively quaint. Make no mistake, however, the quality here is going to be off the charts. Much like I set the stage for my Toronto viewings here, so too will I be doing it today for New York.
Without question, NYFF is always home to the finest in a year’s cinematic offerings, and 2022 will be no exception. Much like last year, I’ve seen a number of them already at Telluride and TIFF (highlighted here), so I know this to be true. Things like Aftersun, All the Beauty and the Bloodshed, Armageddon Time, Bones and All, The Inspection, TÁR, Triangle of Sadness and Women Talking impressed me while in Canada and Colorado. That’s just the tip of the iceberg too, as you’ll see below…
Here now are twenty films to look forward to at NYFF:
*Honorable Mention: All That Breathes, No Bears, R.M.N., Saint Omer, and Stars at Noon*
20. Triangle of Sadness
19. One Fine Morning
18. Is That Black Enough for You?!?
17. Return to Seoul
16. The Eternal Daughter
15. Bones and All
12. Showing Up
11. All the Beauty and the Bloodshed
9. Decision to Leave
8. Master Gardener
6. The Inspection
5. Armageddon Time
4. Women Talking
2. White Noise
1. She Said
All in all, NYFF holds a lot of promise in 2022, as always. Be sure to look out for our coverage of the fest here at Awards Radar. First up will likely be a review of Kelly Reichardt‘s Showing Up, followed by my take on Noah Baumbach‘s White Noise. Then, it’s off to the races with the rest of my coverage. Sit tight, enjoy, and if you’re near New York City, perhaps consider attending a screening or too? If you’re comfortable, of course, the 60th edition of the New York Film Festival looks to be something well worth making time for…
Stay tuned for all of Awards Radar’s coverage of the 60th New York Film Festival!
