Heart of a Dog, Anderson's first feature film in 30 years, was commissioned by the European TV network Arte. The film encompasses joy and heartbreak, at the heart of which is a lament for Anderon's late beloved dog Lolabelle. You can watch the film's trailer below.

The New York Times' Manohla Dargis has made this "dreamy, drifty and altogether lovely movie" a Critics' Pick. "Heart of a Dog is about telling and remembering and forgetting, and how we put together the fragments that make up our lives," writes Dargis. "At times, it feels as if she too were haunting her movie even as, with every image and word, she fills it with life." New York called it "one of the most moving and provocative films you’ll see this year."

    The first recordings of Steve Reich’s Runner (2016) and Music for Ensemble and Orchestra (2018), performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and conducted by Susanna Mälkki, are out now digitally and on CD; vinyl is due December 2. The New York Times calls Runner “a calmly luminous orchestral piece with the pulsating, propulsive rhythms that animate much of Mr. Reich’s music.” The San Francisco Chronicle says that Music for Ensemble and Orchestra “is a beautiful and dramatically charged masterpiece, but its impact goes even further than that.”

    Seven special editions of Wilco's landmark 2002 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot are out now. The now-classic record has been remastered and is available in each set. The Super Deluxe version has eleven vinyl LPs and one CD—including demos, drafts, and instrumentals, charting the making of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot—plus a live 2002 concert recording and a September 2001 radio performance and interview. That box set includes 82 previously unreleased music tracks as well as a new book featuring an interview with Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche, and Jim O’Rourke; an in-depth essay by journalist/author Bob Mehr; and previously unseen photos of the band making the album in their Chicago studio. You can take a look inside in an unboxing video here. Pitchfork gives the set a perfect 10: "A sprawling new box set full of demos and alternate takes suggests a dazzling array of paths the Chicago group might have taken on their masterpiece."
