The D Train

18 hours ago | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

I am at my second Sundance Film Festival.

These are my reviews.

Sundance Film Festival 2015 Reviews

The D Train

Directors/Screenwriters: Jarrad Paul, Andrew Mogel

Principal Cast: Jack Black, James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn, Jeffrey Tambor, Mike White, Kyle Bornheimer

Plot (courtesy of Sundance): With his twentieth reunion looming, Dan can’t shake his high school insecurities. In a misguided mission to prove he’s changed, Dan rekindles a friendship with the popular guy from his class and is left scrambling to protect more than just his reputation when a wild night

takes an unexpected turn.

Review: I liked the pain. It’s like I finally understood the phrase, “misery loves company.” I’m the company. Black says the sad sack Dan. He isn’t liked by his peers on the 20-year reunion committee. On some levels, I identify with Dan. There is a moment when he is trying to »

What Jeffrey Tambor thinks when you say something stupid: On 'Transparent'

25 January 2015 7:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City, Utah --  Jeffrey Tambor knows there's some responsibility that comes with playing a transgender character in a popular television show. That's why he's committed to "doing it right." The recent Golden Globes winner -- for playing Maura on "Transparent" -- was on hand on the red carpet at Sundance, to promote his latest film "The D Train" co-starring Jack Black. But he also reflected on how much further understanding of the transgender community needs to go. "I shook for the first season... it's a huge responsibility, and I want to do it right for the transgender community.... just the other day, someone said something very stupid to me, and I went, 'Wow we still have to keep doing this, keep getting the message out,' because there's a fear of the 'other' and so much ignorance," he said. "It's important." While the Amazon Prime series certainly took a lot out of him, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘The D Train’

24 January 2015 3:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Funny and sad isn’t the easiest combination to pull off, and while both descriptors fit “The D Train” well enough, this dark comedy might just as well be described as edgy and soft, audacious and coy, a largely enjoyable letdown. Starring Jack Black as a chronic loser who decides to save his high-school reunion by securing the attendance of the class celebrity (a terrific James Marsden), Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel’s directing debut puts an impressively daring spin on the modern bromance, finding a unique and undeniably funny point of entry into familiar squirm-inducing realms of male bonding, competitiveness and insecurity. Yet while the startling central twist stands to generate considerable pre-release curiosity for this decently commercial entry, it also allows this slick but shaky effort to peak too soon.

Paul and Mogel, who also share credit for the screenplay, lay the groundwork with expert slyness. Their sad-sack »

The Golden Globe-winning comedy drama from Amazon is free in the UK and Us for 24 hours. Clear your diary and settle down for a spellbinding treat

• Interview: Jeffrey Tambor – ‘People come up to me and discuss their own transitions’

Do you have plans this Saturday night? Cancel them. Amazon has announced that on 24 January, for one day only, viewers in the UK and Us will have free access to the first season of the Golden Globe-winning Transparent.

That’s an urgent five hours of binge-watching to fit into your weekend. But it will be worth it. I came to Transparent late. In a world overflowing with television it’s difficult to keep track of everything and shows inevitably fall through the cracks – Transparent got added to the great list of shows to catch up with later. Surely, I thought, it can’t be that great?

Amazon Gives Viewers One Day To Watch ‘Transparent’ For Free

22 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Looking for something to do this weekend? Amazon has a suggestion. On Saturday, January 24th, all ten episodes of the award-winning dramedy Transparent will be available for free on Amazon Instant Video.

Normally, viewers who wish to watch Amazon's catalog of original programs must own an Amazon Prime account, which costs $99 per year. For one day only, Amazon will waive not apply that requirement to its most acclaimed series, which received widespread critical praise when it debuted in September 24th.

The impetus for this promotion is Transparent's recent success at the Golden Globe Awards. It won a trophy for Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical, and star Jeffrey Tambor also earned a win in the Best Actor - Comedy or Musical category. Those two victories were Amazon Video's first ever award triumphs. Since the Globes, interest in Transparent has soared, and its viewership has increased several times over. »
