Tribeca Film Fest Welcomes World Preems From Keith Miller, Lou Howe, Rapp, Lipes, Renzi, Tristan Patterson, Curry & Yu

By the looks of it, the Tribeca Film Festival might finally be growing out of their awkward teenage phase and moving into a new era where the nab more than just Sundance and SXSW festival rejects. Artistic Director Frederic Boyer has managed to nab some noteworthy American indie projects such as Lou Howe’s Gabriel (see pic above), Keith Miller’s Five Star, Adam Rapp’s Loitering with Intent, and Tristan Patterson’s Electric Slide.

On the docu front, we’ve got the latest from the likes of notable documentarians Marshall Curry and Jessica Yu. Think Ewan McGregor’s Long Way Round meets child solider movie for Curry’s awesomely titled Point and Shoot — where the Libyan rebel army take hold of Curry’s subject. Yu moves from water shortage in Last Call at the Oasis (read our review) to the biggest pandemic of all; Misconception looks at the consequences

"Shameless" 3.06 Recap: Gay Robots

Somehow, against considerable odds - including a Gay Men's Chorus, copious musical numbers and Barbra Effing Streisand - last night's Shameless actually managed to out-gay the Oscars.

Here's how!

We start with Brittany from Social Services packing the Gallagher kids into a minivan like Chicago's most dangerous tee-ball team. She's apparently managed to place wee Liam and Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) in a foster home together, while Debs (Emma Kenney) will be on her own at another home and Lip (Jeremy Allen White) and Ian (Cameron Monaghan) will be housed in some sort of juvie prison camp. This has Lord of the Flies written all over it, and I don't like it. As they depart, Fiona (Emmy Rossum) asks Brittany who reported them but she's not talking. Fiona assures the kids that they'll be home before long, reminding them that last time it was only for nine days.

This is very sad.
