My Best and Worst of Tribeca 2015
For the record this is based on seeing 90 feature films and events plus about 15 shorts.
BEST OF TRIBECA
MONTY PYTHON THE MEANING OF LIVE
DRUNK STONED BRILLIANT DEAD THE NATIONAL LAMPOON STORY
PEGGY GUGGENHEIM ART ADDICT
IN MY FATHER'S HOUSE
STUNG (Hey it was a blast)
FAR FROM MEN
SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE
Also Best all the interviews I did, Riff Trax and Monty Python
THE WORST OF TRIBECA
SUNRISE - too convoluted for me
GOOD KILL- Bruce Greenwood's speech 10 minutes in makes the rest of the film pointless.
LUCIFER- the conceit of the image becomes tiring
SCHERZO DIABOLICO - The lack of logic and silliness of the end detracts from what does work.
MOJAVE-a great performance and quotable dialog do not make up for a plot that sucks
SHUT UP AND DRIVE- Who are these people?
MEN GO TO BATTLE-I'm told its an acquired taste-its not mine.
As for Audience Award Winner KING JACK- it almost got on the best film list but I hesitated so I kept it off.
