Whether you’re an auteurist, a completist, or simply an enthusiast, NYFF Opening Acts takes you deep into the back catalogs of today’s foremost talents to whet your appetite with a sampling of past triumph from these luminaries. So before you see Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher (also director of Moneyball and Capote) at the 52nd New York Film Festival, (September 26–October 12), watch his compelling documentary The Cruise. His 1998 film chronicles the humorously irreverent and painful reflections of Timothy “Speed” Levitch, an eccentric New York City tour bus guide with an archive of beautifully distorted information about the city.
