The 60th New York Film Festival is currently in full swing (September 30-October 16, 2022) at ‘Film at Lincoln Center’ and in venues in all five boroughs. Pop Style TV has been attending some amazing screenings and frequenting the red carpets! See below for some highlights thus far.
All the Beauty and the Bloodshed
The centerpiece film this year by Laura Poitras (CitizenFour) was especially interesting. In her essential, urgent, and arrestingly structured new documentary, Academy Award–winning filmmaker Laura Poitras weaves two narratives: the fabled life and career of era-defining artist Nan Goldin and the downfall of the Sackler family, the pharmaceutical dynasty. Pop Style TV spoke with Laura and Nan Goldin about the making of the film. When asked what the government could be doing better with the healthcare system and opioid crisis, Poitras cooly responded, ‘What couldn’t they be doing better?’ Nan Golden was simply excited for the film to hit the big screen.

‘Decision to Leave’
Usually, when a film is over 2 hours…one can tend to get a bit restless. Even with the SUBTITLES, this film had everyone at the edge of their seat! The plot? A Busan detective becomes increasingly obsessed with a murder suspect in a strange new case: a middle-aged businessman has mysteriously fallen to his death and his wife might be to blame. Director Park Chan-wook won the Cannes Best Director award for this twisting thriller, one of his best films yet.
