As many of you may know, Double Exposure has been taking the 50th New York Film Festival by storm.  That we’ve been seeing a ton of movies goes without saying.  In addition to our coverage here on our blog, we have two writers, Max Nelson and Blair McClendon, participating in the NYFF Critics Academy. (Needless to say, we wish we could all be in it, but at least we can read some of the advice they’ve been given here.)

They’ve been meeting many important film critics and programmers and, just as importantly, they’ve been flexing their critical muscles considerably around the world wide web.

Read Blair’s review of David Gatten’s The Extravagant Shadows and, also on the Film Society of Lincoln Center blog, a piece about the Cinema Reflected sidebar.  Afterwards, head to Indiewire for his consideration of the role of smartphones in Brian De Palma’s Passion and Barry Levinson’s The Bay.

Then check out Max’s piece on a formative, French, and film-nut-only double feature.

Stay tuned for our continuing coverage of the New York Film Festival.
