    Days 日子 (Tsai Ming-liang 2020)

    Long slow looks at a lonely, ailing rich man in Taiwan and a youth in Bangkok. Then they briefly come together for a massage in a hotel room. It's much more moving than you would expect. Tsai's aging muse Lee Kang-sheng is joined by Thai newcomer Anong Houngheuangsy for this film.

    Nomadland (Chloé Zhao 2020) Centerpiece

    Big role for Frances McDormand as a widow forced off the grid who chooses to stay thgere, with a lot of real characters met on the road. Have to say I still much prefer Zhao's THE RIDER. This is already a festival darling and spoken of as Oscar material.

    Isabella (Matías Piñeiro 2020)

    Another graceful, many-layered and pretty opaque riff off Shakespeare (this time Measure for Measure) by the long-haired young Argentinian wunderkind, who now lives in New York but went back to Buenos Aires and Argentina's Córdoba Province for this one. The second time he has been included in the NYFF Main Slate.
