The 61st New York Film Festival is underway (through October 15), and with it come some of the year’s most anticipated high-brow cinematic offerings. These include the Cannes hit Anatomy of a Fall, the upcoming Netflix portrait of a scandal May December (featuring Julianne Moore and Natalie Portman), Hayao Miyazaki’s new (and once-suspected last) animated marvel The Boy and the Heron, and Andrew Haigh’s devastating All of Us Strangers. I’ve been keeping up with the fest and have capsule reviews of some of the lineup that has caught my eye and captured my imagination. They’re in rough descending order of preference within this slideshow, which will be updated as I attend more screenings.
