With the New York Film Festival's press screenings in full swing, I've been very bad about getting my recent reviews up on this here blog. Nonetheless, this post should rectify that failing, as it contains my last TEN published reviews. Some are of films showing at the NYFF, some are of recent theatrical releases, a few are of upcoming films, and one - The Puppetmaster - is my long-delayed new contribution to Slant magazine's 100 Essential Films feature.
FYI - To help navigate this wealth of reading material, I've used asterisks to denote positive write-ups.
A Revisited Classic:
The Puppetmaster (Slant magazine)*
And in case those didn't satisfy your criticism cravings, I've also got seven new capsule reviews posted below for many (generally good) films, including The Child, Oliver Twist, Breakfast on Pluto, and The Death of Mr. Lazarescu.
