Tribeca Film Festival, Celebrating its tenth year, the Tribeca Film Festival begins tonight and runs until May 1. In the course of 11 days, 93 feature films and 60 shorts shown: that the 153 curtains.

To relieve some load, Speakeasy has previewed the films, trailers and short films at our disposal to offer educated advice on what to watch. Because, and it’s just us talking about here, right? -That ‘s just hours so you can sit in the dark with strangers.

Here are our picks, in alphabetical order:

“The Bang Bang Club”

Ryan Phillippe shares the screen with “Friday Night Lights” star Taylor Kitsch, who lost 35 kilos to play the photographer Kevin Carter. Based on the book “The Bang Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War” by Greg Marinovich (played by Phillippe) and Joao Silva (played by actor Neels van Jaarsveld) documents that the film of 106 minutes, the first free elections in post-apartheid South Africa, along with violence and brutal murders that took place.

Our take: This is a violent movie, sometimes in the extreme. But it also gives viewers a look at the lives of the photographers at a dramatic moment in history.

“Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest”

Remember when New York was brave? The same goes for Michael Rapaport, who led the 98 minutes documentary about the trials and tribulations of “A Tribe Called Quest,” which won praise at Sundance earlier this year.

Our take: The fans who have followed the group through their end of 1990 the breakdown of its 2006 session and beyond is likely that the fascination for access behind the scenes and the gross amount of concert footage in film.


There’s nothing like the desert of Bolivia – think about Butch Cassidy. According to the director Mateo Gil, Cassidy did not die in Bolivian military rumored confrontation. It is still very much alive and living as James Blackthorn (Sam Shepard) in the mountains of Bolivia.

Our take: “Blackthorn” serves as English-language debut of Gil, and is likely to keep the fans who admired his earlier projects, such as Alejandro Amen bar “thesis” (which he co-wrote) and “Open eyes? “(Which was later remade as” Vanilla Sky “).


Adrien Brody is back. He plays a substitute teacher who walks a fine line between life in their own lives and struggling with the problems of the universe. The 100-minute movie stars Lucy Liu, James Caan, Blythe Danner and William Petersen with Tony Kaye (American History X “) address.

Our take: This movie is available psychological market Tribeca and has not been screened for critics and it is a mystery.


Remember Eyjafjallaj? Kull the Icelandic volcano, which erupted in 2010? So Jon Gnarr, the comedian became mayor of Reykjavik. Occurred while creating the best party, the political party and later formed to take control of the capital.

Our take: This is a documentary full of laughter, which emphasizes the “if you put your mind to it you can do anything” idea. Fair Warning: it is subtitled.


Surfing is a way out of poverty for surfers of Papua New Guinea. Both men and women to train Papua New Guinea National Titles Surf, which offers the opportunity to surf with world-class professionals in Australia sponsored. But more than riding the waves. Women’s issues and economic development are openly discussed in this 95-minute documentary.

Our take: first-time director Adam Pesce went to the remote coastal town of Vanimo decided to make a film about more than sport. The result is a fascinating insight into a culture of many foreigners knows little about.

“The Union”

For the opening night of the Tribeca, Cameron Crowe takes viewers behind the scenes of Leon Russell and Elton John collaboration album “Elton John Leon Russell / The Union” which was produced by T Bone Burnett.

Our take: John Russell says influenced him more than any other pianist and vocalist.
