Plot: Robert (Gere) runs a trading company and has taken a lot of risks. Now his company is desperate, but that’s nothing compared to the mess he’s gotten into with his personal life. A troubled hedge fund magnate desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire makes an error that forces him to turn to an unlikely person for help.
Who’S It For? This is an adult drama that affectively sprinkles in some soap-opera drama. It’s also one of the “really good” Gere performances.
Do you want to watch a rich guy attempting to sign a contract? Hang on, don’t leave yet. Let me change that around. You want to watch a rich guy attempting to sign a contract. Gere »

So, what're you New Yorkers up to this June? BAMcinématek hopes you'll be spending the last two weeks with them: the fourth annual BAMcinemaFest runs June 20 - July 1 and has the strongest lineup yet, including some 2012 festival favorites and sweet surprises.
Cinephiles will be pleased to know that Roberto Rosellini's recently discovered "The Machine That Kills Bad People," which premiered at Cannes last year, will make its American landing in Brooklyn. A magical comedy from a director firmly grounded in neo-realist roots, 'Machine' focuses on a man whose camera murders anyone it manages to snap. Spooky! A biting satire which critiques the Americanization of Italy, the "Germany Year Zero" director's once-lost project has been newly restored and is definitely worth checking out.

Before Wes Anderson made a name for himself with "Rushmore" and kindred spirit Noah Baumbach found his voice in "Kicking and Screaming" there was another filmmaker bringing a quirky, Wasp-y world view to independent cinema, Whit Stillman. From 1990 to 1998, Stillman made three films that helped shape a particular voice in American films: "Metropolitan," "Barcelona," and "The Last Days of Disco." Along the way Stillman found himself nominated for an Academy Award, honored with the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury prize and lauded as the next "big" thing. And then? Nada. Nothing. Not a peep. For 13 years Stillman was »

Auteurs gotta eat! The new trailer for "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted" arrived online this afternoon, providing another reminder that Noah Baumbach wrote this one. Yep, the Noah Baumbach who penned heady indies like "Kicking and Screaming," "The Squid and The Whale" and "Greenberg." (Not "Margot at the Wedding," because that thing is poison.) "Madagascar 3" focuses on Alex (voiced by Ben Stiller), Marty (voiced by Chris Rock), Gloria (voiced by Jada Pinkett Smith) and Melman (voiced by David Schwimmer), and their attempts to get back to New York by traveling with a circus. Lmafo-scored hijinks ensue ("Only penguins and people can drive!"), which will certainly make the kiddies happy. Here's hoping, "Europe's Most Wanted" also features something about Brooklyn hipsters, angry literati, and Pink Floyd. »
