A highlight of this year’s Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes, actor-turned-director Owen Kline’s Funny Pages (Opens August 26) draws on an intricate network of film references—from the psychodrama and Hollywood teen comedies to underground cinema to Golden Age cartoon one-reelers. On the occasion of Film at Lincoln Center’s release of Funny Pages on August 26, Kline has handpicked an assortment of films that influenced the world to which his hilariously dark, pleasantly unexpected debut belongs, including works by Ralph Bakshi, Frank Tashlin, and Robert Downey, Sr.; 35mm cartoon pairings; and the premiere of an hour-long 35mm “Mystery Reel” assembled by Kline himself.
Present proof of purchase of a ticket to Funny Pages (Opens August 26) at any Animating Funny Pages screening and get $5 off!
Organized by Owen Kline, Dan Sullivan, and Tyler Wilson.

Israeli filmmaker Nadav Lapid shows no signs of slowing down in this shattering follow-up to his bat-out-of-hell Synonyms (NYFF57). A film of radical style and splenetic anger, Ahed’s Knee accompanies a celebrated but increasingly dissociated director (Avshalom Pollak) to a small town in the desert region of Arava for a screening of his latest film. Already anguished by the news of his mother’s fatal illness (Lapid’s film was made soon after the death of his own mother, who had worked…
Collective and personal ghosts hover over every frame of Memoria, somehow the grandest yet most becalmed of Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s works. Inspired by the Thai director’s own memories and those of people he encountered while traveling across Colombia, the film follows Jessica (a wholly immersed Tilda Swinton), an expat botanist visiting her hospitalized sister in Bogotá; while there, she becomes ever more disturbed by an abyssal sound that haunts her sleepless nights and bleary-eyed days, compelling her to seek help in…
Denzel Washington stars opposite Sarita Choudhury in Mira Nair’s second fiction feature, which endures as a seminal screen romance of the 1990s. Choudhury is Mina, a Ugandan Indian from Kampala whose family leaves Uganda after the implementation of Idi Amin’s policy of forcefully expelling all Asians from the country. They wind up in Greenwood, Mississippi, living with relatives and trying to reconcile the trauma of their involuntary exile with assimilating to American culture. Some 17 years pass before Mina falls…
Among the many ways that racism is deeply entrenched in our film culture is a technical one: the lighting for movie cameras has always been calibrated for white skin, with other production tools reflecting the same bias throughout cinema history. Three filmmakers collectively explore the literal, theoretical, and philosophical dimensions of that reality in this discursive, playful, and profound work of nonfiction. In a series of thematically linked, provocative discussions and interrogations, Eléonore Yameogo from Burkina Faso, Belgian An van.…
This whole NYFF 60 challenge has really been great for me! Allows me to be more thoughtful in my choices, while also allowing me to A) revisit films either I love or would like to reevaluate, B) allows me to catch up on films that I’ve been meaning to see for years, like Blue or This is Not a Film, and C) seek out obscure oddities that I would never have found out without such an impressively long list. Sugarbaby falls…

***this is a review of the DIRECTOR'S CUT of Midsommar, and a detailed breakdown of the new footage after the jump***
On July 3, Ari Aster’s “Midsommar” was released on 2,700 screens across the United States. The twisted modern fairy tale —an epic fable that starts with a bleak murder-suicide, and ends with a somewhat brighter one almost 147 minutes later — was an extraordinary ask for a multiplex audience, and Aster knew full well how fortunate he was that…
Colonialism Roleplay ASMR - Must Watch Till End!
the first word we hear in ZAMA is "voyeur," an accusation laid against the title character by a group of women he watches bathe on the beach. zama flees as a woman pursues him, only to turn around and strike her down. it is this inciting incident that frames the rest of the film and its perspective on colonialism: not as violence against women persay, but as voyeurism. the indigenous population and…
