Benicio Del Toro in CheCourtesy of Cannes
The New York Film Festival just announced its lineup, and there it is, just as we hoped: Hidden within a quirky program that features as its centerpiece Clint Eastwood’s Changeling and closes with Darren Aranofsky’s The Wrestler — Mickey Rourke comes to the NYFF! — is Steven Soderbergh’s Che, arriving in its full four-hour glory for its American premiere (we assume). Other movies on the list we’re excited about: Kelly Reichardt’s Wendy and Lucy, Wong Kar-Wai’s Ashes of Time Redux, Mike Leigh’s Happy-Go-Lucky, and Steve McQueen’s Camera d’Or winner, Hunger.
