New York Diary: Films watched at the cinema 

 

I am currently staying near three cinemas that are walking distance (Angelika, Metrograph, Anthology and IFC) and I've watched films everyday during my first week here, sometimes 3 films a day. I guess my sightseeing in New York is visiting the cinemas. How can I not? 

First Reformed (dir. Paul Schrader) is by far my favourite film seen this week and will no doubt be in my top 10, possibly top 5 by the end of the year. It's the only film I've been thinking about a lot this week, to an extent where I went to see it for the second time. 

 

Here's the list of films watched this week:

  • First Reformed (Paul Schrader, 2017) at Angelika
  • 20, 30, 40 (Sylvia Chang, 2004) at Metrograph
  • Revenge (Coralie Fargeat, 2017) at IFC
  • It's Great to be Alive (Alfred L. Werker, 1933, 35mm) at MoMA
  • 6 Hours to Live (William Dieterle, 1932, 35mm) at MoMA
  • The Day After (Hong Sang-soo, 2017) at Film Society 
  • The Birds (Alfred Hitchcock, 1963, restored) at Metrograph
  • The Man Who Fell to Earth (Nicolas Roeg, 1976, 35mm) at Anthology
  • Ganha & Hess (Bill Gunn, 1973, restored) at Metrograph
  • The Gospel According to Andre (Kate Novack, 2017) at Angelika
  • Disobedience (Sebastián Lelio, 2017) at Angelika
  • A Fistful of Dollars (Sergio Leone, 1964, restored) at Metrograph
  • First Reformed (Paul Schrader, 2017) at Angelika
