Sunday afternoon, on the heels of the successful premiere of his screenwriting debut "Struck By Lightning," Chris Colfer hit the 14th Street Apple Store for an Apple Talk. The Tribeca Film Festival was hit with an orgiastic explosion of Gleek fandom. Teenage girls came out with forceful freakage, shrieking with joy over a boy they really, really, really stand no chance with. The six other notables on the panel shared exactly none of Chris's spotlight, but let's be serious. Who really wants to deal with five hundred screeching girls everywhere they go? I only sat in the audience surrounded by it, and I can only imagine how exhausting this must be for poor Chris. Whenever any of the other panel members made even the slighest reference to him or Glee, the Gleek Chorus responded with deafening Awws and Oohs. The girls cried, brought him gifts and pestered security for hugs. And this is not to mention the blatant repeated violation of the flash photography rules. The panel filled out with actors Polly Bergen, Roberto Acuire, Carter Jenkins, Allie Grant, and director Brian Dannelly. Aside from the hubbub, the panel did provide plenty of insight into the making of Tribeca's biggest surprise hit.

This weekend, Indiewire and Apple teamed up to host a genuinely uproarious panel featuring the folks behind Tribeca doc "Mansome": Will Arnett, Jason Bateman (via the internets!), Morgan Spurlock and Ben Silverman. They took the stage with IW's Dana Harris and the result was a significant amount of fun.

After several decades of the Reagan-Bush-Palin-Santorum circus in town, perhaps we don't need to be reminded of how silly this country can be. But a group of documentaries at the Tribeca Film Festival are exploring this funny land in a number of ways:

Seung-Jun Yi's doc "Planet of Snail" was the big winner at IDFA last fall, and it is having its North American premiere this weekend at Tribeca. And while I have yet to see too many other docs at the fest just yet, I'd wager a bet that it will end up being one of the festival's very best.

Never Subject Yourself To 'The Five Year Engagement'

I used to love studio-produced romantic comedies. Or at least love them in a guilty pleasure sort of way. "Pretty Woman," "Sleepless in Seattle," "As Good As It Gets," "My Best Friend's Wedding," "Bridget Jones' Diary"... Many of them flawed, to be sure (and occasionally downright dangerous in that whole unrealistic fairy tale projection thing). But they were and are joyous viewing experiences if you don't think too much about them. However, somewhere in the past decade, I more or less gave up on the genre.  This new age of "New Years Eve," "Valentines Day," anything-starring-Katherine Heigl type of films almost always come across as hastily put together, purse pandering pieces of garbage that suggest there's no intelligence level in its audience demographic.
