Pablo Schreiber Is a Terrifying Drug Lord in 'Thumper' Clip (Exclusive Video)

1 hour ago

"I ain't going to jail for your mistakes," says Pablo Schreiber as a menacing leader in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive clip of Thumper.

Written and directed by Jordan Ross, the crime drama sees Schreiber as Wyatt, the head of the local drug ring. Schreiber — best known for terrifying inmates on Orange Is the New Black — says he’s drawn to “characters who live on the extremes” and “people who have different live philosophies than I do,” but he’s never played an overtly racist character before.

“We shot this April 2016, long before the election,” he tells THR. “But now »

Andie MacDowell on 'Love After Love's' "Unusual" Opportunity "For a Mature Woman"

1 hour ago

Russell Harbaugh's Love After Love, which premiered Saturday night at the Tribeca Film Festival, follows a family after the death of its patriarch and how his widow, Suzanne (Andie MacDowell), and her adult sons (Chris O'Dowd and James Adomian) try to cope with their loss and move on, including with new relationships.

The film is somewhat unconventional in its lack of exposition and traditional dialogue, with viewers instead peering in on the family members' lives.

The Hollywood Reporter's David Rooney says in his review, of Harbaugh's approach, "Many of Harbaugh's scenes are little more than fragments, often glimpsed »

'Shadowman': Film Review | Tribeca 2017

2 hours ago

Oren Jacoby’s documentary chronicles the life and career of Richard Hambleton, one of three figures who dominated the outsider art scene in 1980s New York. But unlike his contemporaries Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, who, as one of the film’s commentators waggishly puts it, each made the “good career move” of dying young, Hambleton squandered his success with a crippling drug addiction. Shadowman, receiving its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, achieves its goal of shining a spotlight on its subject while delivering a fascinating true-life tale.

The film begins with grainy footage, shot late at night on in »

4 hours ago

Emily Mortimer has a fuzzy memory in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive trailer for the virtual reality film Broken Night.

Making its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, the eight-minute Vr title explores a woman's unreliable narrative of an intense trauma — returning home and encountering an intruder. The viewer gets to choose which memories to follow while recounting the events to a detective.

“There are always many different versions of any story,” Mortimer, who also served as an executive producer, tells THR. “With conventional filmmaking, the writer, the director and the performer all have to plump for »

'House of Z': Film Review | Tribeca 2017

18 hours ago

Comeuppance does the trick in Sandy Chronopoulos's House of Z, a rise-fall-rebirth portrait of dress-designing wonderboy Zac Posen. Fashionistas will obviously appreciate this undishy but intimate doc, which is especially strong in its account of the designer's flowering as a creative teen. But civilians they drag along with them will also find it visually stimulating and fleet enough to justify their time.

Raised in 1980s SoHo by New Yorkers who prized creativity (father Stephen was a painter, mother Susan a corporate lawyer), Zac started dressing things as a toddler. Discarded fabric from manufacturers could still be found on the street, »

'The Trip to Spain': Film Review | Tribeca 2017

18 hours ago

The Trip to Italy, Michael Winterbottom's second improvised travelogue starring Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan, was the Godfather II of food-porn comedies that revolve around impressions of Michael Caine: It offered all the pleasures of the original (2010's The Trip) while deepening its themes and giving viewers more to look at.

The good news for fans is that The Trip to Spain is no Godfather III. The moderately bad news is that this sometimes hilarious outing is the one in which the conceit comes to resemble a lushly produced, irregularly broadcast TV series, each episode built of recombinations of now-familiar »
