Mean Streets

  • The history of filmmakers using New York City as a location for films. I don't really buy the idea that NYC is a "city without character." Sure, times have changed, but I think that it's up to the filmmakers to make the city (or any city) a part of a film.
  • The globalization of the American independent film.
  • A look at Jean-Pierre Melville's Army of Shadows.
  • OK, so we're giving you all the Tribeca Film Festival coverage that you could possibly need, but that doesn't mean you can't read Caryn James' reports too!
  • In an audio slide show, Catherine Keener and Nicole Holofcener discuss their movie Friends With Money.
