Tribeca Film Festival: Review Roundup Volume 1 (One You Can Watch At Home Right Now!)

Submitted by melissa on April 15, 2014 - 10:50pm


 

Tribeca Film Festival kicks off Thursday with 89 features, 58 shorts representing 40 countries. Of those, 39 have first-time directors and 55 are world premieres. But enough with the numbers, you just want to know what's good. Luckily, I've already seen 18 of the 89 (sorry, more numbers) and can give you a little insight on the good, the bad and the ugly. I'll be posting short reviews and starting Friday, will be live tweeting from the festival. Follow me @dialmformelissa

Review: Transcendence

Submitted by melissa on April 15, 2014 - 9:15pm


 

Since strapping on the pirates outfit in 2003, the eclectic actor Johnny Depp's movies have gone on to gross billions of dollars, making him one of the most marketable actors in Hollywood, and rightfully so. The luxury afforded to such actors is the opportunity to do any movie that he chooses; the question is why Mr. Depp chooses the movies he does. Transcendence, from first time director Wally Pfister, who was Christopher Nolan's cinematographer for the past twelve years, seems to be a great choice of roles for the 50 year old actor, but as with many things that involve Christopher Nolan, looks sometimes can be deceiving. Transcendence leaves a lot to be desired.

Dr. Will Caster (Depp) is an artificial intelligence researcher who, along with his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall), are trying to create a machine which possesses technological singularity. To possess this would mean that the machine would have progressed to the point of a greater-than-human intelligence, radically changing civilization, and perhaps human nature. A radical terrorist group named RIFT lead by a woman named Bree (Kate Mara) plan a series of attacks across the country on labs whose technological work threatens to unleash this type of A.I. and threaten the future of the human race. After completing a speech on the topic of his research, Will is shot by a RIFT soldier and hospitalized.

The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival (TFF) announces that AT&T, the new presenting sponsor, has created FILM FOR ALL FRIDAY – where individual tickets to all film screenings on Friday, April 25 will be FREE. Yep, you read that right, FREE. As explained below, starting April 14th, go to an AT&T retail location (find all here) and sign up to have the tickets emailed to you. Or if you can't get to one, you can go online beginning the 17th to get what's left. If you still didn't get the chance, you can stand in the Rush lines. (Rush lines are when the screening isn't filled, and they have a line of people waiting to fill it up.)

From April 14 – 17 consumers can receive free tickets to a screening of their choice at all AT&T Company-Owned retail locations in all New York boroughs, including two locations in New Jersey – Hoboken and Edgewater – where tickets will be emailed upon selection to each consumer.  Tickets can also be obtained at the TFF box office locations during this time*. Beginning April 17, in addition to the AT&T locations and box office, and subject to availability, Festival goers can go to TribecaFilm.com and get tickets to a free screening. Additional free tickets may be accessed for all Friday April 25 screenings through the Festival Rush Lines that open 45 minutes prior to each screening on a first-come, first-serve basis. All tickets are subject to availability and two screening tickets per person.
