From Tony Scott to Yasujiro Ozu, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing This Weekend in New York City

Oh, "the rhythm of the weekend, with its birth, its planned gaieties, and its announced end, followed the rhythm of life and was a substitute for it." Yes, and as tomorrow marks another first Friday of summer, we’re reminded that although the weather may be shaping up and boy does the beach sure look tempting, there’s still plenty of good reason to hide in the cozy comfort of a darkened theater. And this weekend, cinemas all around the city are showing everything from rare prints to classics, sure  to please everyone’s cinematic palette. Whether you and your film-focused lover intend on spending the weekend at Film Forum for an Ozu fest for two or your heart’s set on running down to Landmark Sunshine at midnight to celebrate True Romance, there’s a huge and exciting range of films to choose from over the next few days. So I’ve rounded up the best of what’s playing in New York for you to peruse before kicking off your weekend of play. Enjoy.
