With 22 films ranging from the gory to the delightful, the lo-fi to the pro-life, and from the likes of Marco Bellocchio, Jeff Bridges, Ingmar Bergman, Isabelle Huppert, Takashi Miike, and Michel Gondry, there really is something for everyone in this year's Film Comment Selects!
In its second week, the ever-eclectic festival delivers screwball comedies (David Wain's "Wanderlust"), inventive horror ("Silent House" starring Elizabeth Olsen), engrossing documentaries (three by Jean-Pierre Gorin) and other not-to-be-missed gems ("Margaret," anyone?).
"We refuse all borders in the magazine and in the movie theater: That’s why both in our pages and in our programs we celebrate genre fare from kung-fu movies to horror flicks right alongside the work of certified art-house luminaries like Jia Zhangke, Thomas Vinterberg, and not forgetting R.W. Fassbinder."
