    Q&A: Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon Talk 'The Trip,' Differing Improv Styles And Their Onscreen Personas

    This world loves bickering buddies. From Laurel and Hardy to Jay and Silent Bob, there's plenty of fondness for comedies built around caustic and amusing back-and-forths between two people that, at the drop of a hat, either want to kill each other or cuddle. Michael Winterbottom, the man responsible for "Welcome to Sarajevo" and the harshly-and-unjustly-criticized "The Killer Inside Me," saw gold in the relationship between his star Steve Coogan ("24 Hour Party People") and friend/comedian Rob Brydon and amplified their personalities for "Tristam Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story." The result was a riot, and things went so well that the three reunited for "The Trip," a BBC2 series and movie.

    Tribeca 2011: Mama Africa

    I first heard of Miriam Makeba on the awesome Paul Simon album Graceland (still one of the greatest), but I had no idea about her Miriam Makeba, the woman or Miriam Makeba, the activist. The Tribeca documentary Mama Africa directed with love by Mika Kaurismaki (a guy) is a wonderful biography of a woman who stood up for what she believed in, spoke out about apartheid and got her banned from her homeland for decades.

    Review: 'Fast Five' Keeps Enough Fuel In This Aging Franchise To Still Be Fun

    It's sort of amazing how dexterous the "Fast and the Furious" franchise has been. Originally conceived as a kind of hot rod version of "Point Break," directed by the perpetually midlife crisis-gripped Rob Cohen, complete with a trashy title lifted from an ancient American International Pictures cheapie, it has evolved over the years, with each successive sequel equipping the original concept of a sturdy undercover cop (Paul Walker) who flirts with the dark side of underground car racing (led by Vin Diesel) with new flourishes. John Singleton helmed the sequel, "2 Fast 2 Furious" and turned it into a live action anime (for better or worse it was a stylistic precursor to the Wachowskis' "Speed Racer"), while current franchise shepherd Justin Lin crafted a nifty "American Graffiti"-style one-off in "Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," before returning all the principles to the series for the back-to-basics revenge mode of "Fast & Furious."
