TINSEL & TINE

Tinsel & Tine (Reel & Dine) is about discovering what I find pleasing in Film & Food -  My post/commentary are from the perspective of someone who truly reveres good storytelling, and possesses a voracious appetite.

Although I also write about my dining experiences and food events, the blog is primarily film-centric. My writing style weaves together personal anecdotes and observations in conjunction with film reviews, reporting from film festivals and preview film screenings. Not to mention, whenever possible, highlighting the simpatico of food in film!

Tinsel & Tine encourages blog contributors. Please send
your film festival experiences - from big and small film festivals - pictures, short reviews, long reviews, food & film tie-ins, report on the celebrities, the atmosphere etc... Feel free to share your festival coverage during or after the festival.  (Blogging credit only compensation).

PFS Picks from Tribeca Film Festival

Monday, May 9, 2011

Philadelphia Film Society at Tribeca Film Fest

I sat down with PFS Executive Director, Andrew Greenblatt to get the scoop on what he liked at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and what Philly audiences might expect during the upcoming 20th Philadelphia Film Festival (Oct. 13-23, 2011).

My first thoughts when it comes to attending the more well known film
festivals, is all about being a part of the gala celebrations, red
carpets and rubbing elbows with the celebrities. Andrew intentionally
avoids all that, he's there to screen - saw 15 films in 5 days, and aims
to see a minimum of 4 films a day at Cannes.

Therefore, he didn't light "A Candle in the Wind" or hop and bop to the "Crocodile Rock" (Elton John concert at opening ceremony) but in terms of the line up of films, he felt it was "The best Tribeca in years!"

PFS Exe. Dir. Top Tribeca Picks:  
(Click film titles for good, short Tribeca Film Fest Synopses)

A Quiet Life: Director Claudio Cupellini (Italian, German with subtitles) - "A slow burn, but it works well."

Point Blank : Director Fred Cavayé (French with English subtitles) - "A French action film, bought by Magnolia. I don't want to say it was reminiscent of District B 13, but it's in the same vein,  Point Blank has a more interesting plot, yet still action packed - great opening scene! It's a cool movie".

"Saint"

Saint: Director Dick Maas (Dutch with English subtitles)
- " IFC bought this film the day I saw it. A genre film re-imagining
St. Nicolas as a demonic murderer." First line of the synopsis seems to
say it all - An original and delightfully gruesome slasher film.

The Assault : Director Julien Leclercq (French with English subtitles)
- "The terrorist taking of a plane in Algiers that then landed in
Marseilles, France. Narrative feature, could have been a little tighter,
but overall good."

Hideaways: Director Agnès Merlet (France, Ireland, Sweden, World Premiere) - "Kinda of like a fairytale, fable-y film, not unlike Lady in the WaterI asked, "is that an endorsement?" Andrew replied,well, you're talking to the guy who didn't hate Lady in the Water, so take my opinion for what it's worth.

Ozzy Osbourne

God Bless Ozzy Osbourne:  Director Mike Fleiss and Mike Piscitelli (USA) -  "That was a lot of fun! Depending on when it gets released, this would be a good music play for our festival."

Klitschko: Director Sebastian Dehnhardt (World Premiere) - "Documentary about the two heavy-weight champions the Klitschko Bros." 
Andy was really excited about this movie, but I had no idea who he was
talking about. I'm always so clueless when it comes to sports figures.

Angels Crest : Director Gaby Dellal (Canada,  U.K., World Premiere) and Detachment: Director: Tony Kaye (USA World Premiere) - "Were both really heavy and depressing, not bad, just tough."

Catching Hell: Director Alex Gibney (USA)  - "Doc on Steve Bartman and sports fans in general. Really pleased with this one."

The Guard:  Director John Michael McDonagh (Ireland, New York Premiere) - "Out of Sundance, an Irish detective comedy starring Don Cheadle and Brendan Gleeson, it's funny and very well done. Sony Pictures Classic bought it."

Will Ferrell in "Everything Must Go"

Everything Must Go:  Director Dan Rush (USA, New York Premiere) -"Which was the secret screening at our festival last fall. Will Ferrell introduced the movie at Tribeca, which will be out on May 13th".

The films Andy wanted to see, but scheduling didn't permit -  Like Water : Director Pablo Croce (USA,World Premiere) / The Good Doctor : Director Lance Daly (Kisses) (USA,World Premiere) / The Perfect Family: Director Anne Renton (USA, World Premiere) / Bully Project: Director Lee Hirsch (USA, World Premiere) / Carol Channing- Larger than Life: Director Dori Berinstein (USA, World Premiere).

Extensive programming for the Philly Film Fest will begin after Andrew and Artistic Director, Michael Lerman
return from Cannes (May 11-22).  The Curators will be brought in, lists
are compiled and within 2-3 weeks invitations are sent to the
filmmakers.  I asked if there were any early film submissions being
considered? Unfortunately, this information has to be kept mum until
it's time to make announcements.
