Alex Ross Perry returned to the New York Film Festival with his five-act punk drama Her Smell, featuring a powerhouse performance from Elisabeth Moss. We spoke with the filmmaker about how attending programs at the Film Society of Lincoln Center, including our Paul Verhoeven retrospective and The Female Gaze, helped shape his work. He also discussed his New York Film Festival memories, including a former Centerpiece selection that directly influenced the structure of Her Smell.
