Spitzer doc unveiled at Tribeca

24 April 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

New York -- Alex Gibney took the wraps off his work-in-progress doc about former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer on Saturday night at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The untitled film, which includes several interviews the filmmaker conducted with Spitzer about midway during A&E Indie Films' two-year production process, offers a largely sympathetic though occasionally critical look at Spitzer's accomplishments -- as well as his downfall and the suspected forces behind it.

The project was one of the most warmly received titles available for acquisition during Tribeca's opening weekend. Several films have emerged from under the radar to attract buyer interest, including the polygamy doc "Sons of Perdition," the poetic drama "Lucky Life" and the Vietnamese actioner "Clash."

I didn’t know what I was missing until I saw it right in front of me.  Beaten and exhausted by 8 days at Rotterdam, I decided to end the festival on a high genre note with Tsui Hark’s Hong Kong “new wave” third film, Dangerous Encounters: 1st Kind. After being neck-deep in contemplative films for a brief but intense period of viewing, I had forgotten what the influx of young blood into Hong Kong at that time (including John Woo and Ann Hui, the latter of whom has a quite good film at the festival) meant:  hunger.  Hark’s screed—as it indeed can only be described as that—is a blood-shot, parasitic work of extreme angry energy and invention, fueled by MTV new aesthetics and Hong Kong problem solving, and ends up thrillingly shoving the our faces in the nihilistic and extremely bitter and paranoid culture of youth »
