The New York Film Festival began this past weekend and runs through the end of the week.  Manohla Dargis of The New York Times has this audio preview piece.  She opines in this print piece, "Proudly, at times lazily, this is a festival that always demands discrimination from its audience, a sense of adventure, even as it also relies on no small amount of brand loyalty. You can call the festival elitist — really, go ahead, it’s a badge of honor — as well as maddening, inspiring, out of touch and in the know, but this year you certainly can’t call it dull."
