  • The hottest movies of the New York Film Festival
    (”Medicine for Melancholy” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    ava duvernayblack lives matternew york film festival Ava DuVernayAraya Diaz/WireImageBlack Lives Matter comes to Lincoln Center this weekend, as the New York Film Festival makes a political statement with an unprecedented step: showcasing a documentary on opening night. Directed by Ava DuVernay (“Selma”), “13th” draws a connection between the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery, and one of today’s most talked-about issues: the mass incarceration of black men. The film, touted as a possible Oscar nominee and debuting on Netflix next Friday, marks another step forward for DuVernay, who is also the creator and executive producer of the popular family drama “Queen Sugar” on the OWN channel. She was recently hired to direct Disney’s big-budget film version of the children’s novel “A Wrinkle in Time,” becoming the first black woman to helm a $100 million-plus film. Continuing in the same key, the two-week-long festival offers New Yorkers their first chance to see another highly touted film about black Americans, “Moonlight,” a gay coming-of-age story set in a gritty part of Miami. Directed by Barry Jenkins, whose only previous feature film was 2008’s “Medicine for Melancholy,” this poetic drama was hailed as a top Oscar contender after screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it earned critical rapture. Among the special events will be a pair of Q&A sessions with buzzy actors: “An Evening with Adam Driver” (Oct. 2) and “An Evening with Kristen Stewart” (Oct. 5). Driver plays a New Jersey bus driver-turned-poet in “Paterson,” which is showing at the festival, and Stewart appears in three NYFF offerings, including “Personal Shopper” by France’s Olivier Assayas, and “Certain Women” by Kelly Reichardt. Here are some of the other highly anticipated films showing at this year’s 54th annual fest (scout for tickets at FilmLinc.org/NYFF2016/): “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk”: The Ang Lee film based on the Ben Fountain novel about an Iraq War vet (Joe Alwyn) with a secret is said to be a technological marvel — it was shot in ultrahigh-tech 4K, in 3-D, at 120 frames per second, requiring special projection equipment. Said to feature uniquely immersive footage depicting a battle Billy survived in Iraq, it will make its world premiere at the festival on Oct. 14, with tickets distributed via lottery, ahead of a theatrical release on Nov. 11. “Jackie”: Natalie Portman’s portrait of a devastated Jackie Kennedy following her husband’s assassination makes her a major contender for another Best Actress Oscar in the first English-language film by Chile’s Pablo Larraín (Oct. 13). “The Lost City of Z”: The closing-night film, directed by James Gray (“The Immigrant”), will make its world premiere on Oct. 15. Charlie Hunnam stars as a British explorer on an obsessive journey through the Amazon. “20th Century Women”: Directed and written by Mike Mills, whose “Beginners” won Christopher Plummer his Oscar, this one is another world premiere, a fond comedy starring Annette Bening and set in 1979 Santa Barbara, Calif. (Oct. 8). “Manchester by the Sea”: An Oscar contender that stars a riveting Casey Affleck as a New England handyman with a dark past, Kenneth Lonergan’s agonizing drama features Michelle Williams and Kyle Chandler (Oct. 1, 2, 11). “Elle”: “Basic Instinct” director Paul Verhoeven, best known for campy action spectacles such as the original “RoboCop,” changes speeds with this French-language character study with Isabelle Huppert as an unconventional rape victim (Oct. 14, 15, 16). “Julieta”: Pedro Almodóvar’s 20th film is an adaptation of three Alice Munro stories focusing on a Madrid woman (Emma Suárez) who’s estranged from her adult daughter (Oct. 7, 8). “Neruda”: In Larraín’s second film screening at the festival, he and his “No” star Gael García Bernal reunite for a playfully surreal comic detective story about the period when the Chilean politician-poet Pablo Neruda was forced into exile in the 1940s (Oct. 5, 6).

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
