From Wong Kar-wai to John Waters, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing in New York City This Weekend

If Wong Kar-wai has taught us anything from his films, it’s that love is all a matter of timing. What we hold in the grandest of proportions can be unhinged from the smallest fraction of time, whether we’ve met the right person too late or allowed moments to slip through our fingers in an earlier life. But as tomorrow begins the start to another weekend, you’ll have two days of relaxation to reflect on the myriad ways time has put a expiration date on the many loves that pass in and out of our lives. 

Or, if you’re looking for a more productive and pleasurable way to spend your time, you can head down to the cinema and dive headfirst into Kar-wai’s world with two of his best films as well as his latest. But if you’re looking for something more, there’s plenty of classics invading our cinemas this weekend—from British psychodramas to sci-fi thrillers and chillers. And alongside, we’d got some of the best premieres of the summer that show just how amazing some of independent cinema’s new talent truly is. So whatever your film fancy, peruse our list, find yourself a king size bag of candy and curl up in a darkened theater tomorrow night. Enjoy.
