NYFCC at Metrograph

November 10

Founded in 1935, the New York Film Critics Circle is one of America’s oldest and most-esteemed award-giving groups, serving as an early bellwether in the award’s season, and often as a needed corrective to the direction that it finally goes. And as the hype, hubbub, and Oscar prognostication begins anew, the NYFCC remembers two releases from earlier in the year that shouldn’t be forgotten, films which cut right to the heart of crucial conflicts in contemporary culture, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman and Paul Schrader’s First Reformed, each presented in person by the muckraking New York-based filmmakers behind them.
