Women Who Kill (And The Women Who Love Them)

Team Experience is reporting from the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.Here'sJasononWomen Who Kill.

Replace the hard gray rocks of a Provençal lake with the hard gray sidewalks of Park Slope Brooklyn and you'll find there's a lot in common between the gay men of 2013'sStranger by the Lakeand the gay women ofWomen Who Kill,Ingrid Jungermann's droll black comedy screening today at Tribeca.Sure the lesbians are wearing a lot more clothes,but nature is nature,and who hasn't found themselves fetishizing sexy danger for the right mysterious someone?We want what we want,sanity be damned.(It doesn't hurt when maybe-crazy comes in the form ofA Girl Walks Home Alone at Night's sultry-eyed Sheila Vand either.)

Women Who Killvibes on humor over heavy petting though,and the laughs are steady and smart and nigh on rollicking at times in Jungermann's script,and beneath her sharp straightforward direction - I probably recognized even more of myself in the foibles of these Brooklyn ladies,with their terror of swans and urine-stained grass,than I did their gender-flipped French counterparts.I'm just one serial-killer podcast and an urban rooftop garden away from a perfect storm of commiseration.Who isn't?

Tribeca Drops First Half of Festival Program,Chocked Full of Potential Discoveries

Daniel Crookehere,salivating over today's first wave of films from the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival's line-up.While the Spotlight,Midnight,and Special Sections programs won't drop until March 8,the US Narrative,International Narrative,and World Documentary Competitions,and Viewpoints showcase hit the internet today and there's plenty to buzz about.Scanning the films,you'll find an embarrassment of riches hiding in the programming,plot details,and cast lists.Here are some personal points of interest:

US Narrative Competition

Ingrid Jungermann's webseriesF to 7thwas an astutely,hysterically observed slice of queer life in New York,giving voice to a uniquely cutting female perspective in the process,so her feature debutWomen Who Killshoots straight to the top of the list.The Fixersounds intriguing in a small-town-with-secrets kind way,James Franco as an "eccentric local"a little less so.Queens of charting the path from comfortable malaise to all-out soul-search,Amy Landecker and Melanie Lynskey – who,in particular,is quietly giving the best lead performance on television – pop up inDreamlandandFolk Hero & Funny Guy.Current faves Keith Stanfield (Short Term 12,Straight Outta Compton) and Dan Stevens (The Guest) will star inLive CargoandThe Ticket.

International Narrative Competition

It's hard to ignore the promise of a collection of short films from the likes of Chilean shaggydog provocateur Sebastian Silva and actors Mia Wasikowska and Gael Garcia Bernal inMadly,sounding like anI Love You,anthology movie but if the city were Relentless.Argentine Cinema had the international stage last year with the raucousWild Tales– although Lucretia Martel eternally has her own platform in my heart – so fingers crossed for another cross-hemispheric success withThe Tenth Man (El Rey Del Once) and its culturally and generationally intersectional premise.

World Documentary Competition & Viewpoints

Documentary-wise,Betting On Zeropositions Herbalife as a pyramid scheme,Do Not Resistexposes the military-industrial nature of America's police culture,andLoveTrueboasts the wacko cred of (my Northeast Los Angeles neighbor) Flying Lotus on score and Shia LaBeouf as executive producer.Equalswith Kristen Stewart and Nic Hoult premieres in the Viewpoints program,along with raunchy R-rated animationNerdland(trend-chillin' withAnomalisaand Annapurna'sSausage Party) and the divisive British class flickHigh-Rise.
