For you New York City documentary fans (or those willing to travel to the Big Apple for a great film festival), it's probably wise to start investigating what movies you want to see during the Tribeca Film Festival. I mean, for Pete's sake the festival begins in 3 days!
But don't panic, there's plenty of time and information at http://www.tribecafilm.com to help answer all your questions. Though the festival isn't exclusively for documentaries, it does offer some excellent films for our beloved genre.
I suggest checking all the films out for yourself, but some personal recommendations are:
- The Two Escobars - drug cartels, murder and soccer... hmm, one of these is not like the others
- Thieves By Law - think Eastern Promises, but in real life.
- Freetime Machos - rugby meets the Bad News Bears.
There, by only selecting three I fully angered and ignored numerous other awesome documentaries playing at the festival. But again, why listen to my opinion? Head on over to http://www.tribecafilm.com and see the complete list of wonderful films that will be playing.
