Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to catch a couple of Tribeca Film Festival screenings. I didn't attend as press and so have no "official" reviews to file, but this blog grows out of the experiences of its contributors, and my two screenings were definitely an experience.

On Saturday afternoon I checked out "Beware the Gonzo," from "The Basketball Diaries" scribe Bryan Goluboff. In addition to penning the script, Goluboff also makes his directorial debut with "Gonzo." He assembled a talented cast of young actors for the film, including Jesse McCartney, Zoe Kravitz (yes, the daughter of Lenny) and Ezra Miller, who was great in "City Island" and is great once again in "Gonzo" as a young Hunter S. Thompson wannabe. That's not even mentioning an adult cast that includes Campbell Scott, Amy Sedaris, James Urbaniak and Judah Friedlander. Read More...
