    Tribeca Snapshot: Woody Allen's "Whatever Works"

    Marked by interchangeably trite and witty dialogue, "Whatever Works" is the definition of a minor Woody Allen movie. The director's triumphant return to New York City after several years of European excursions finds him in familiar, if not exemplary, form. Most people on the Allen bandwagon will likely view this outing as a charming mediocrity. The decision to cast "Seinfeld" creator and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star Larry David in the standard "Woody" role, of course, forms a theoretical match made in heaven. In practice, however, David's neurotic insanity generally works just well enough to smooth over the awkward gaps in this half-baked plot...

    Back to Its Roots? Evolving Tribeca Fest Emphasizes Escapism, Activism

    A "smile and a hug" is how Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal recently referred to her eight year old event, reiterating the role it has played -- particulary in Lower Manhattan -- since launching in the aftermath of the tragic 2001 terrorist attacks. The festival has been both envied and criticized by industry insiders since boldly arriving on the scene. Backed by the high-profile support of corporate sponsor American Express, and with actor Robert DeNiro as a figure-head, the festival drew immediate media attention and audiences alike, despite some skepticism. This year, organizers seem to be trying to reign in expectations whi...
