Here, a few of the most anticipated films playing during NYFF, which kicks off Friday with “The Tragedy of Macbeth.”

“Titane”Director Julia Ducournau’s body-horror thrilled audiences at Cannes earlier this summer, where the film won the Palme d’Or – making Ducournau the second female director to receive the festival’s highest honor. Reviewers have described the offbeat film as “shocking,” a description used also for Ducournau’s controversial debut film “Raw,” which premiered at Cannes in 2016. “Titane” stars Agathe Rousselle in her first feature role as a woman who is impregnated by a car. The film’s NYFF screening will be followed closely by a Oct. 1 theatrical release — which will be a true test of its wider crowd appeal.

“Drive My Car”Japanese director Ryusuke Hamaguchi turned to a short story by Haruki Murakami as inspiration for his latest film, which, despite the source material, clocks in at almost three hours. The story centers around a recently widowed stage director, who is paired with a young woman hired to be his chauffeur. Hamaguchi’s adaptation, which premiered at Cannes, won the festival’s award for best screenplay and the FIPRESCI prize.

“Memoria”Tilda Swinton stars in Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s reflective film as a Scottish woman visiting her sister, who is ill with a mysterious sickness, in a hospital in Bogotá. Swinton’s character is haunted by a loud sonic boom, as she begins looking to her surroundings for answers. headtopics.com

“Benedetta”Director Paul Verhoeven’s followup to “Elle” (for which Isabelle Huppert received an Oscar nomination) is a biopic loosely inspired by the nonfiction book “Immodest Acts: The Life of a Lesbian Nun in Renaissance Italy” by Judith C. Brown. Actress Virginie Efira stars in Verhoeven’s film as Benedetta Carlini, an Italian nun from the 17h century who develops a love affair with one of her fellow nuns. After playing during NYFF, “Benedetta” is slated for a December theatrical release.
