    Lost & Abandoned: 10 Movies That Were Shot, But Eventually Scrapped

    Undoubtedly the biggest news story of 2014 so far (unless Apichatpong Weerasethakul replaced J.J.

    Tribeca Review: 'Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic' Obscures The Genius Of A Comedic Titan

    It's an unenviable task, putting together a documentary about a stand-up comedian. The best ones transcend the form and become storytellers; in the case of "Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic," offering only brief snippets of Pryor's bits is like doing a Michael Jackson doc and only playing a few bars of...
