As the 48th New York Film Festival comes to a close this weekend with the North American Premiere of Clint Eastwood's "Hereafter," indieWIRE is rounding up critical reaction of all the films that screened at the fest. Below are links to reviews and film pages (which include criticWIRE grades from a variety of critics and bloggers) for all the films in the festival's main slate.

The festival's opener, David Fincher's "The Social Network" had the highest criticWIRE average of any of the films screening at the festival, followed closely by Raoul Ruiz's "Mysteries of Lisbon," Apichatpong Weerasethakul's "Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives" and Charles Ferguson's "Inside Job" closely following. indieWIRE's own Eric Kohn said of "The Social Network" in his recent review: "For a world predominantly occupied by guys in their early twenties, “The Social Network” is an unconventional contender for the headiest American movie of the year."

Other films included in the festival were "The Tempest," from theater titan Julie Taymor, which served as the NYFF's centerpiece film; Mike Leigh's "Another Year," Kelly Reichardt's "Meek's Cutoff" and Olivier Assayas' five-hour-plus opus "Carlos." In addition, each of the film's pages contain links to related articles. Further additions will be made to the pages in the days following the festival, so check back.
