'PASSION' TO PLAY NEW YORK FILM FEST, TOO
"DE PALMA BRINGS GREAT PANACHE & A DIABOLICAL MASTERY OF SURPRISE"
The Film Society Lincoln Center today revealed its lineup for the 50th New York Film Festival, which runs from September 28 through October 14. Brian De Palma's Passion is one of the selections, making it two films in a row for De Palma, who brought Redacted to NYFF five years ago. Curiously, the article linked to above, written by Eugene Hernandez, states that this is De Palma's "first fiction feature since Femme Fatale." Despite being based on actual murders, the two films De Palma has made since Femme Fatale are both fiction films, as well: The Black Dahlia and Redacted. (Although Redacted begins with the onscreen disclaimer, "This film is entirely fiction, inspired by an incident widely reported to have occurred in Iraq," those words are themselves redacted to make way for a message that begins, "redacted visually documents imagined events...") In any case, the blurb included about Passion sounds tantalizing: "Brian De Palma brings great panache and a diabolical mastery of surprise to a classic tale of female competition and revenge. Noomi Rapace and Rachel McAdams are super-cool and oh so mean."

The Film Society's program director, Richard Peña, headed a selection committee that included Melissa Anderson, Scott Foundas, Todd McCarthy, and Amy Taubin. Peña said, "The films making up the main slate of this year's NYFF have in common a general quality of fearlessness that unites otherwise very disparate works. These are films that go all the way, works willing to take the risk or chance that by doing so they may be bringing audiences to places they might rather not go

NYFF will open with the world premiere of Ang Lee's highly anticipated Life Of Pi, and close with the world premiere of Robert Zemeckis' Flight. Other films include Alain Resnais' You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet, Léos Carax's Holy Motors, Olivier Assayas' Something In The Air, Michael Haneke's Amour, and Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha. Resnais films bookend the NYFF's 50 years, as his film, Muriel, Or The Time Of Return, screened at the very first festival in 1963, according to the article.
