Tribeca: Courteney Cox Owes The World An Apology For Her Directorial Debut Just Before I Go
I resented the 95-minutes of my life I was giving to this garbage, and Cox for thinking it was worth showing the world at all.

Watch Jerry Lewis Slay The Crowd With A Dirty Joke At The Tribeca Film Festival's Closing Night
The Tribeca FIlm Festival wrapped up a week ago, but we're still kicking ourselves for missing out on the big closing night event-- a special screening of Scorsese's The King of Comedy, with DeNiro, Lewis and Scorsese all on hand to talk about the 1982 cult classic. Jerry Lewis was an icon of comedy by the time the film was made, but these days he's basically a legend

Tribeca Film Festival: Oxyana Heartbreakingly Scratches The Surface Of An Invisible Epidemic
Prescription drug abuse isn't as attention-grabbing as bath salts, and not as glamorized as meth, but as the documentary Oxyana movingly depicts, it's just got as much power to destroy. Taking its title from the nickname acquired by Oceana, West Virgina, Oxyana is a portrait of modern rural American life as completely transformed by drugs, in this case a legal prescription painkiller that has paralyzed an entire generation

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me Is A Deeply Funny Delight

Tribeca Film Festival Review: Michael H - Profession: Director Will Thrill Haneke Die Hards
The film's most telling moments were when Haneke confesses that he channels his own fears and anxieties into his work, which is sometimes autobiographically inspired, as a form of therapeutic catharsis, and when he admits, "In cinema, the viewer is always the director's victim."

Tribeca Film Festival: Jean Dujardin's Thriller Mobius Is Sexy, Never Thrilling
As its plot progressed I was able only to follow its broadest strokes. Ultimately, not even the smoking hot sexual chemistry of its leads (Jean Dujardin and Cécile De France) could save this confounding thriller.

Tribeca Film Festival: Vice Magazine Makes Cat Videos Seem Even Dumber With Lil Bub And Friendz
The absolute last thing the Internet cat meme phenomenon needed was a feature-length documentary that's happy to participate in, not examine, the madness. Given access to a variety of people who have turned our world into one that includes the phrase "cat-lebrities," Eisner and Andy Capper come away with…nothing. Maybe even less

Tribeca Interview: Teacher Of The Year's Rachel Dratch
As someone who’s working on some short films of her own, I know that there’s nothing more helpful that attaching a “name” to your project and, for Rachel Dratch, all she really wanted was to be part of a film playing in a festival, so she and Teacher of the Year turned out to be the perfect match.

Interview: Caroline and Jackie’s Marguerite Moreau
Regardless of whether or not you know what you’re getting into when catching a new movie, there’s no way to prepare yourself for such raw performances like the ones you get from Marguerite Moreau and Bitsie Tulloch in Caroline and Jackie. In honor of the film’s world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, Moreau sat down to chat about working on a film with just an outline, working in a highly improvisational environment, sustaining notably long takes and more.

Tribeca Interview: Knife Fight's Jamie Chung And Richard Schiff
I’m not as politically savvy as I’d like to be, but isn’t that part of the reason folks running for office have campaigns? Yes, the ultimate goal is to get votes, but they’re educating the public on their policies in the process. Now the question is, what happens when scandal swoops in and steals that spotlight? That’s where folks like Chris Lehane and characters like Kerstin (Jamie Chung) and Dimitris (Richard Schiff) step in.

While discussing his Tribeca Film Festival release, Knife Fight, Man of Steel’s Dr. Emil Hamilton, Richard Schiff, took the time to talk about shooting at Edwards Air Force Base. While on location, Schiff was in impressive company. “The real Navy SEALs and a bunch of guys played the extras.”

Tribeca Interview: Sleepless Night Director Frédéric Jardin
How about a feature film involving a cop running frantically through a packed nightclub, music booming, and vicious fights and scuffles breaking out all over the place? Oh, and an in-motion car battle, too. Sounds like a blast right? Of course, but it also sounds like quite the challenge for director Frédéric Jardin. It’s been a little while since Jardin directed a feature film, but he’s certainly back in full force.

Tribeca Interview: Struck By Lightning Director Brian Dannelly
When you can a pitch that goes, “A kid from Glee wrote a script and I want you to read it,” director Brian Dannelly’s skepticism is certainly justifiable. After reading Chris Colfer’s Struck By Lighting, Dannelly was certain nobody would make this movie – nobody except for him. Even though Carson can be totally unlikeable and dies in the beginning of the film, Dannelly found it quite appealing that Struck By Lightning was far more about the experience rather than the goal.

After premiering Sun City Picture House at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, Darg, Mooser and Wilde are back to give Baseball in the Time of Cholera the same honor.

Tribeca Review: Grave Encounters Is More Of The Same, But Still Pretty Scary
It’s getting increasingly difficult to keep the found footage style fresh and Grave Encounters proves it. While the film does have a rather unique tone in terms of how it blends horror and comedy, ultimately, it’s a recycling of past shaky cam-style films.

Tribeca Video Interview: Grave Encounters Writer-Directors The Vicious Brothers
Grave Encounters is far more than just another found footage film to the writing-directing duo, The Vicious Brothers; it’s their opportunity to push the sub-genre one step further. While some of the ghosts in the film were enhanced with CGI in post, much of what we see on screen was physically there.

Tribeca Review: Janie Jones’ Predictable Script Is No Match For The Charm Of Abigail Breslin
World, watch out for Abigail Breslin. Thanks to nine years of work, we know she’s a talented actress, but Janie Jones really proves she’s on another level, not only because it reveals she’s an incredibly talented singer, but because she takes a subpar script, breathes some life into it and manages to make it somewhat enjoyable.

Tribeca Video Interview: Janie Jones’ Alessandro Nivola And Abigail Breslin
As nerve-racking as it was for Abigail Breslin to adapt to singing and playing the guitar in Janie Jones, one of the most jarring changes was that of the actor playing her dad. Alessandro Nivola stepped in just days before shooting began and only met Breslin the day before the camera rolled

Tribeca Review: Saint's White Subtitles Don't Mesh Well With A White Christmas
Saint has two things working against it; it’s subtitled and foreign. No, there’s nothing wrong with requiring an audience to read some text or with a film coming from another country; the problem is the subtitles are often illegible and a number of the jokes
