I totally forgot to give y'all a heads-up that I'll be mostly off-line today -- a last batch of Tribeca screenings, ya know -- but if you head over to The Film Experience I've got a few reviews from the Fest going live. First up there's A Kind of Murder, starring Patrick Wilson and Jessica Biel in an adaptation of a Patricia Highsmith book called The Blunderer. Second up...
... there's the Persona-like thriller Always Shine, starring the great Mackenzie Davis (who just won Best Actress at the Fest for her performance here) and Caitlin FitzGerald as a pair of actress-friends on a weekend trip together.
And then thirdly click here to hear my thoughts on Hunt for the Wilderpeople, the darling new movie from New Zealand director Taika Waititi, whose vampire-comedy What We Do in the Shadows was a bit of a hit last year, and who is set to dive into no less than the Marvel Universe next when he directs the third Thor movie. Wilderpeople stars Sam Neill as a Bush grouch stuck with a saucy little foster son, and it is sweet and funny stuff.
