From Antonioni to Cassavetes, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing in New York This Weekend

Sundays may be a "wan, stuff shadow of a robust Saturday" or a day of "forced leisure for folks who have no aptitude for leisure," according to Tom Robbins, but a weekend is still a weekend. The pleasure of a Friday night, the knowing the burdens of work week have a brief respite carry themselves into the following two days of leisure, and what better way to indulge in that leisure than heading to the cinema. And for those who prefer to stray from the conventional summer blockbuster, there are more than enough wonderful films showing around New York for you to disappear into. Whether it’s the latest installment in Richard Linklater’s transcontinental love story or one of the most stunning films newly restored for the screen, there’s surely something to satisfy every cinematic appetite. I’ve founded up the best of what’s playing around the city, so peruse our list, and enjoy.
