Fabulous Films. Page Proofs Arrive. A Party.

Poster for first New York Film Festival in 1962.

October 14, 2007--A strong week of fabulous fiction films at NYFF including this year's Palme d'Or from Cannes, Cristian Mingu's 4 Weeks, 3 Months, 21 Days from Romania, Alexander Sokurov's Alexandra from Russia easily overshadowed débacle over book's index with publisher. Pure unadulterated early Bob Dylan in Murray Lerner's concert doc of the Newport Folk Festival 1963,1964,1965 also featuring Joan Baez, twenty years in the making was well worth the wait. Photos here are from the time-honored mid-festival omelette and tiramisu party at O'Neall's on the Upper West Side near Lincoln Center.
