Paul Thomas Anderson's Doc

The 53rd iteration of New York Film Festival has added a host of new movies, including Cannes winner Son of Saul, Paul Thomas Anderson‘s secret Jonny Greenwood documentary Junun and more.

The non-competitive festival, which runs September 25 through October 11, will also feature the North American premiere of the Brian De Palma biopic De Palma from Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow, the deeply intriguing Chevalier from Athina Rachel Tsangari (Attenberg), Laurie Anderson’s Heart of a Dog, and a special anniversary screening of Joel and Ethan Coen’s beloved roots-musical fantasia O Brother, Where Art Thou?, as well as revival screenings of Blow Out, Ran, A Touch of Zen and an unseen Manoel de Oliveira film.
