David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter on the reunion of Wes Anderson, Bill Murray, Anjelica Huston and Gwyneth Paltrow for a Q&A following last night's 10th anniversary screening of The Royal Tenenbaums"Mirroring the epic dysfunction of the Tenenbaum family itself, the playful Q&A that followed the screening included both celebration and good-natured skewering of the absent cast members. Prime target was Gene Hackman, whose performance as wayward patriarch Royal Tenenbaum is among his best, even if his mood on set was not always the most amiable." 

The Hollywood Reporter also praises NYFF entry The Artist. The modern-day silent, black-and-white film is already generating Oscar buzz about a potential run for best picture.

indieWIRE's The Playlist reviews NYFF entry Policeman, calling it “a strong, Haneke-inspired rumination on Israeli society.”

Shockya blog praises the upcoming NYFF documentary Corman’s World, a touching presentation of the filmmaker’s prolific career.

L Magazine reviews NYFF entry Goodbye First Love, noting: “For a film about change, one of the biggest undergone in Goodbye First Love is the meaning of the title, which begins connoting bittersweet youthful reverie and ends as a hopeful promise of something newer, better.”
