Yes, there are better things playing right now than Mission Impossible number… whatever. Ethan Hunt is the hero to end them all, perhaps, but why make yourself feel any dumber this week than you need to? There’s plenty of time for Tom Cruisin’ (that movie’s got at least a billion more dollars to make back before Scientology’s satisfied), so get tootin’ on some of these other films instead.
These days, polyamory isn’t just for kooky Bushwick types. Legit Hollywood stars are spicing up their on-screen marriages with ménages. The plot to each of these movies playing at the Tribeca Film Festival is basically one big build up to a group sex scene. (Spoiler alert: now that we’ve said that, even seeing their titles will give away their, uh, climax, so read on at your own risk.) Whether it’s a vanilla foursome or an incestuous threesome you’re looking for, Tribeca has it all.
We’ve all heard of directors crowdfunding their movies (see: David Cross), but this one’s new: Brooklyn filmmaker Alex Ross Perry, the ex-Kim’s Video clerk who went on to write and direct Listen Up Philip, has launched a fundraiser for his cat’s cancer treatments. Fluffy, the feline in question, actually appears in the movie as Gadzooks — Elisabeth Moss’s character takes him in when she breaks up with Philip, the narcissistic novelist played by Jason Schwartzman.
A day after Jared Leto graced Bushwick with his presence yesterday, another actor/rocker, Jason Schwartzman, was in the East Village today. A source spotted the indie moppet on the set of Mozart in the Jungle, the Amazon original series he’s co-producing with Roman Coppola.
