"The Avengers" Premieres at Tribeca, Weirdly Enough

Remember when the Tribeca Film Festival hosted the World Premiere of "New York Minute," the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen vehicle? The U.S. premiere of "The Avengers" at BMCC Tribeca on Saturday falls into place as Tribeca's 2nd most egregious bow towards movie stars regardless of their merit. And that's sad. I can think of countless other major films in need of visibility who would have no doubt been aided by a gala slot. What does "The Avengers" gain from a Tribeca gala? It's already one of the most anticipated movies of 2012.

I wasn't the biggest fan of Eytan Fox's 2002 film "Yossi & Jaggar."  A love story between two male Israeli soldiers, it was most certainly an affecting, sexy portrait of a doomed gay relationship in a very specific milieu. But I found it a little too soap-operatic, a little too unrealized...

Alright so, yes, Diet Coke is sponsoring the Lost Boys coverage of Tribeca so it's hard to appear objective in this suggestion, but: Starting today there's a Diet Coke sampling truck handing out free bottles somewhere in Manhattan.

The Emotional NYC Premiere of "Keep the Lights On" at Tribeca

Being a gay film person in New York has its perks, one of which was being able to follow the production of a movie we all felt would be really important. Ira Sachs' "Keep The Lights On" was the movie, it was the summer of 2011, and we were all excited to have a gay-themed story told in a big way by one of New York's greatest gay filmmakers. It seemed that, at some point, everyone I know took part in the film somehow. When I watch the film now, I lose track of the number of friends' faces that pop up in the background. (Yes, I'm also in it at one point, but you can hardly see me.)

If you have the chance to see James Franco's new film (co-directed by Franco and Ian Olds), "Francophrenia (or: Don't Kill Me, I Know Where the Baby Is") at this week's Tribeca Film Festival, please do...So long as you don't think you'd mind staring at Franco, mostly silent, pensive, with a running voiceover of his inner thoughts while shooting the finale to his infamous run on "General Hospital."  If you're up for it, there's still three screenings left.

I Heart "Take This Waltz"

After debuting at the Toronto Film Festival last fall, Sarah Polley's "Take This Waltz" had its US premiere at Tribeca this Sunday.  Highly anticipated after Polley's acclaimed directorial debut "Away From Her," the film was intially met with a considerably more mixed response. And now having seen it, I get why. The film is clearly far from perfect.  Some scenes feel very out of place and unnecessary. The tone is uneven. The dialogue occasionally overwritten.
