Special Episode - The 50th New York Film Festival #1 (Simon Abrams)

            In this special edition of The Cinephiliacs, Peter averts from the regular format for the next three weeks to report back from his annual visit to the New York Film Festival, a favorite cinephile event of his. To help him break down the first week of films, freelancer extraordinaire Simon Abrams joins him to discuss a cornucopia of films that explore cinema, religion, history, and the imaginative process. They dive into the bold use of digital imagery in De Palma's Passion, clash on the complex morality in Mungiu's Beyond the Hills, and elate over the joy of Renais's You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet. Also included in this episode are thoughts on Christian Petzold's Barbara, Noah Baumbach's Frances Ha, Valeria Sarmiento's Lines of Wellington, and Peter Strikland's Berberian Sound Studio

 Notes and Corrections
-For some reason, I kept referring to Mysteries of Lisbon as "Lipson," because my mouth moves too fast.
