My coverage from the 56th New York Film Festival for Pajiba and Riot Material: The Favourite: The Favourite is fascinating, ferociously funny, and hands down one of the best films of the year. Wildlife: "Dano’s direction urges performances that are tender symphonies of everyday agonies." At Eternity's Gate: "Schnabel celebrates the art while making its maker a tragic crackpot whom we can ogle in this snooty tragedy porn, stroking our own egos for recognizing his worth." The Ballad of Buster Scruggs: "This cowboy collection is clunky, indulgent, and ultimately underwhelming." Mid90s: "Hill’s directorial debut is aggressively mediocre." Burning: "I don’t need two and half hours and mercilessly long close-ups for this story. It’s one I—-and I reckon most women—-know all too well. We are told it nearly every damn day."
