Film Comment Selects 2014
February 17 – 27
The 14th edition of Film Comment magazine’s essential and eclectic feast of cinephilia presents 22 discoveries and rediscoveries, 17 of them New York premieres, and nine without U.S. distribution, handpicked by the magazine’s editors after scouring the international festival circuit in 2013. This year’s awesome, mind-melting lineup covers the entire cinematic spectrum from genre movies to art-house whatsits to long-unseen revivals and includes new films by Bernardo Bertolucci, Hong Sang-soo, Lukas Moodysson, and Lasse Hallström, a special marathon screening of Jane Campion’s TV miniseries Top of the Lake, and vital new talents from Iran, Korea, Spain, and Australia. Our vintage offerings include a 1970s healthcare mayhem double feature starring George C. Scott and James Coburn, a rarely screened 1983 Raúl Ruiz masterpiece, a two-film focus on early works by Barbara director Christian Petzold, plus Jeremy Irons and Ben Kingsley in the 1983 film version of Pinter’s Betrayal!
