From Scorsese to Baumbach, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing in New York City This Weekend

Whether it’s an in-depth character study of an insomniac vigilante you’re looking for, an awkwardly charming modern tale of identity and friendship, an immersive look into one of the most brilliant creative minds, or a lavish re-imagining of your favorite literary work, there’s something playing at the cinema for everyone this weekend. From films just on the cusp of New Hollywood of the 1970s to the film that defined the era, to some of the most profound and refreshing new voices in film today, I’ve rounded up the best of what’s playing in the city this week. So start counting down until tomorrow at dusk, because there’s no better Friday night activity than curling up in a darkened theater and experiencing an old classic like never before or enaging in something new and wonderful for the first time. Enjoy.
