Tribeca 2012 Preview: Cinemania & Viewpoints

Ryland Aldrich, Festivals Editor

Tribeca 2012 kicks off tomorrow and we've got another installment of our preview series for your perusal this morning. Yesterday we took a look at the TFF2012's Galas & Competitions, today we tour the midnight-ish Cinemania and boundary-bending Viewpoints sections. Check back this afternoon as we wrap up our previews with a look at the gigantic Spotlight section of films.

Cinemania



REPLICAS
Selma Blair, Josh Close, Rachel Miner, and James D'Arcy star in Jeremy Power Regimbal's darkly violent home invasion thriller.


SLEEPLESS NIGHT
French director Frederic Jardin's hard boiled night-in-a-nightclub actioner was enough of a hit at Toronto (and Fantastic Fest!) to the tune of netting a big remake deal with Warner Bros.


REVENGE FOR JOLLY!
First-timer Chadd Harbold put together an all-star cast including Oscar Isaac, Elijah Wood, Kristen Wiig, Adam Brody, and Ryan Phillippe alongside screenwriter and star Brian Petsos in this violent comedy about a murdered dog and the rampage that ensues.


JACKPOT
The Norwegian action comedy by Magnus Martens looks like a whole lot of fast-paced fun.

Viewpoints



RESOLUTION
Justin Benson and Aaron Scott Moorhead's impressive indie thriller looks pretty damned freaky from this must see trailer.


CAROLINE AND JACKIE
Adam Christian Clark's debut feature is this impressive dinner-party-gone-wrong drama.


JOURNEY TO PLANET X
It's DIY filmmaking glory in Myles Kane and Josh Koury's hilarious looking docu about a pair of scientists who dream of big screen stardom.


THE FOURTH DIMENSION
This tripped out triptych features stories of time travel and more from directors Harmony Korine, Alexey Fedorchenko, and Jan Kwiecinski (Val Kilmer stars in Korine's).


BURN
Marwencol producer Tom Putnam and docu vet Brenna Sanchez team up with Denis Leary to tell this story of Detroit firefighters working to save this once-thriving city.


CUT
Iranian director Amir Naderi nods to Japanese masters with this stylized story of Japanese masochism.


SEXY BABY
Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus examine the hypersexuality of the digital age through three women aged 12, 22, and 32 years old.


SUPPORTING CHARACTERS
It's a who's who of hot young actors in Daniel Schecter's New York-set buddy comedy starring Alex Karpovsky, Tarik Lowe, Arielle Kebbel, Kevin Corrigan, Sophia Takal, Melonie Diaz, Sebastian Sozzi, Mike Landry, and Lena Dunham.
