New Lego Movie Hits Tribeca – But This One's a Documentary

That's because there's already another Lego movie ready to go – a documentary called “Beyond the Brick: A Lego Brickumentary,” which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday night and seems likely to find a distributor in short order.

Tribeca Docs on Government Spying: ‘What Was Illegal Under Nixon Is Legal Under Obama’

9 hours ago

Government surveillance, abuses of power and the supression of dissent kicked into high gear after 9/11, one documentary argued at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday night. But the whistleblowers who exposed recent activities were hardly breaking new ground, because some of the same things were going on more than four decades ago, another Tribeca doc pointed out. Both “Silenced” and “1971” tackle issues that reverberate in light of Edward Snowden's recent disclosures of the extent of domestic spying, and the risks some citizens take to expose activity they feel subverts the Constitition. The two films made for bracing and frightening. »

A Pennsylvania high school student was suspended this week for having the balls to pursue the American dream of securing a prom date with Miss America herself, Nina Davuluri. 18-year-old Patrick Farves was cheered on by the student body at Central York High School in York, Pa when he approached Davuluri with a plastic flower in hand in the middle of an assembly.

Tribeca: Patrick Stewart and Mary Elizabeth Winstead Steal the Show on Night 3

19 April 2014 12:36 AM, PDT

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Patrick Stewart were two of the stars of the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday night, anchoring strong films that made their world premieres half an hour and a couple of miles apart. While Winstead was charming, subtle and quietly devastating in actor/director Chris Messina's “Alex of Venice,” Stewart was gloriously entertaining but also heart-wrenching in Stephen Belber's adaptation of his Broadway play “Match.” “Alex of Venice” screened a little earlier and a little further uptown; directed by Messina, whose day job includes regular roles on “The Mindy Project” and “The Newsroom,” it stars Winstead as the. »

‘Mad Men’ Final Season Wish-List: What Don Draper's Fate Should Be (Guest Blog)

18 April 2014 3:22 PM, PDT

As a “Mad Men” superfan, it's difficult to say goodbye to one of my all-time favorite shows. I understand that splitting the final season into two parts may be the right choice financially for AMC, but creatively — it could become the unnecessarily long goodbye. While re-watching the show from start to finish in (feverish) anticipation of the premiere, I thought about how I want it to end. I trust the writers to do an outstanding job of delivering us the soapy — yet intelligent — twists and turns that have always made “Mad Men” addictive. But more than the storylines, »
