Live From the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival

I'm here! 2008 Tribeca Film Festival, New York, New York. And it's like the cloudy, rainy chilliness arrived just in time to make all of us moviegoers feel justified about sitting in darkened theaters all day. Which is precisely what I've been doing, awesomely. So far, I've caught six movies and attended the red carpet event for Tennessee. Here are some of my thoughts so far:

  • Nothing says drizzly Sunday mornin' like a movie about socialite incest and murder. Savage Grace is heavy on the savage, not so much with the grace. Julianne Moore is phenomenal, but this horrifyingly tragic story is difficult to watch and harder to enjoy.
  • I came thisclose to a petite man approximately my size before realizing it was Ben Kingsley, but by the time I doubled back toward him, he was being swept away by his people. After seeing his surprisingly hilarious performance in The Wackness, I have this intense urge to pick that guy's brain.
  • More thoughts if you


  • Mariah Carey looked wonderful on the red carpet for the movie she's in, Tennessee. She was polished and professional-looking and answered peoples' questions eloquently. My slideshow of photos is coming soon!
  • Speaking of Tennessee, I got to chat briefly with one of the lead actors, Ethan Peck, who is completely adorable. His favorite part of making Tennessee: developing a true brotherly relationship with his costar Adam Rothenberg.
  • While waiting for arrivals on the red carpet I befriended Tara from FilmSchoolRejects, who is a super cool chick. Check out some of her thoughts on the festival here.
  • So far this festival has been tightly run with a great, friendly staff, and the general atmosphere is relaxed. I'm pretty impressed with the level of organization that has gone into making it accessible.
  • Despite an absurdly neat and tidy ending that set my teeth on edge, one of my favorite movies so far has been David Mamet's Redbelt. This may or may not have anything to do with the fact that I love Chiwetel Ejiofor, who plays the central character.

More photos, thoughts and reviews soon to come!
