Film Festival report

The New York Film Festival has run its course. Here are some films I recommend, if they come your way. I'm giving the title by which the film was identified at the festival. Sometimes, especially with foreign films, title changes occur. In the parentheses, you'll find country of production and director.

That's quite a selection of films.
I haven't been to a movie theater in almost 10 years. Seems we rather go out to eat than watch a movie, and with the many great restaurants here in Dutchess we do a lot of eatng out.
