Reverse Shot at 20: Selections from a Century
Sep 22 — Nov 26, 2023
Originally printed as a stapled zine, distributed for free throughout New York, the independent film journal Reverse Shot began in 2003 as a labor-of-love endeavor among a small group of twenty-something cinephiles. Since 2014, it has been the house publication of criticism for Museum of the Moving Image, still edited by two of its co-founders, Michael Koresky and Jeff Reichert. Reverse Shot has stayed committed to publishing serious, lively, and thoughtfully edited writing that wrestles with the past, present, and possible future of the cinematic medium. On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, MoMI and Reverse Shot team up to give audiences an opportunity to see some of its contributors’ favorite films from the 21st century on the Museum’s big screen. This is a celebration of the best in recent cinema, from several of its most important contemporary practitioners, from essential international artists like Claire Denis, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Olivier Assayas, and Maren Ade to essential large-scale craftspeople like M. Night Shyamalan, Terrence Malick, and David Fincher.
