NY Film Critics: “Carol,” Todd Haynes, Michael Keaton, Saorise Ronan, “Inside Out,” Mark Rylance, Kristin Stewart Acting Nods, Eschews Michael Moore

The New York Film Critics’ choices for 2015 dribbling out right now.  Their choices are superb and must be applauded. They moved Michael Keaton to lead actor in “Spotlight,” where he belongs. They didn’t choose “Mad Max.” I am so impressed and relieved.

“Carol” wins Best Picture. Many congrats. Todd Haynes’ adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novel “The Price of Salt” is exquisite. Starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, now in theaters.

Mark Rylance has Best Supporting Actor for “Bridge of Spies”

Kristen Stewart Supporting Actress for “Clouds of Sils Maria.”

Best Director– Todd Haynes, “Carol”

Best Actor– Michael Keaton, for “Spotlight”

Best Actress– Saorise Ronan for “Brooklyn”

Animated film– “Inside Out” which should also get a Best Picture nom at the Oscars

Foreign film — “Timbuktu”– even though I thought this was released in 2014

First film– “Son of Saul”–great choice

Cinematography– the great Ed Lachman for “Carol”–  a rare achievement and must be seen

Non fiction film– Frederick Wiseman’s “In Jackson Heights” over “Amy,” “Going Clear” or “Where to Invade Next”

keep refreshing
