From Woody Allen to François Truffaut, Here’s What You Should Be Seeing This Weekend in NYC

Whether it’s classic Woody Allen or his latest ode to neurosis Blue Jasmine that you’re in the mood for, this weekend there’s plenty of reasons to head down to the cinema. With a generous mix of new releases—from your favorite fetish director Nicolas Winding Refn with Only God Forgives to Josh Oppenheimer and his chilling new documentary The Act of Killing—you can also find yourself disappearing into one of cinema’s most stunning film’s ever made, with L’Avventura still having its run at Film Forum.

So whatever your cinematic fancies, persue our list of the best films playing around New York City this weekend, grab yourself some Twizzlers, and enjoy.
