Martin Scorsese's 'King of Comedy' to Close 2013 Tribeca Film Festival

Rupert Pupkin. The name slides off the tongue like luggage off an airport carousel. And as portrayed by Robert De Niro -- post Jake LaMotta, pre Noodles Aaronsen -- he is one of the more memorable pieces of cultural/emotional baggage produced by the American screen. A hero of dubious sanity. Dubious worth. More cringe-worthy than an episode of “Two Broke Girls.” He is “The King of Comedy.” And he will be closing the Tribeca Film Festival on April 27.

Two key articles are making the online rounds on the tricky and contentious transition to digital. Of the current Oscar contenders, while most are going to be seen in theaters via digital projection, "The Dark Knight," "Anna Karenina," "The Master," "Lincoln," and "Silver Linings Playbook" were all shot on film, the preferred method for their respective directors, who are loathe to give it up.
