FILMLINC'S DAILY PICK:
"Velvet Bullets and Steel Kisses: Celebrating the Nikkatsu Centennial"
Japan's Nikkatsu Corporation has enjoyed a rich history of film production and distribution since 1912. As it approaches its 100th anniversary, Nikkatsu’s motto “We Make Fun Films” remains as true today as it was in its golden era. Come enjoy some of their classics in this special 37-film series running throughout the festival. Members can purchase a four-film pass for just $28 ($40 for non-members)! We particularly recommend Rusty Knife (pictured, Howard Gilman Theater, 8:15pm), a harbor-set noir thriller from Toshio Masuda. Today's other offerings include Take Aim at the Police Van (Howard Gilman Theater, 5:00pm, RUSH TICKETS AVAILABLE!*) and Intimidation (Howard Gilman Theater, 6:40pm, RUSH TICKETS AVAILABLE!*).

TODAY IN THE MAIN SLATE:
Shame, 12:00pm, Alice Tully Hall
Michael Fassbender dazzles as a compulsive womanizer in Steve McQueen's ferociously sexual drama. (NYFF Spotlight)

The Turin Horse, 2:30pm, Alice Tully Hall
Niezsche’s long silence, and the carriage driver who seemingly brought it on, are the parallel themes of Béla Tarr’s Silver Bear winner from Berlin.

My Week with Marilyn, 6:30pm + 9:00pm, Alice Tully Hall
Centerpiece Gala. Michelle Williams accomplishes the near-impossible—portraying Marilyn Monroe as an actual person, not just an easily caricatured icon—in this charming bio-pic centering on the production of her 1957 film, The Prince and the Showgirl. (NYFF Spotlight)
