I started off day 2 of the Tribeca Film Festival with another movie about an awkward family, Bitter & Twisted. The film, which begins with the death of a young man and then flashes forward three years to see the toll his loss of life took on his family, was a good movie. It didn't have much of a storyline--there was no beginning, middle and end--instead it felt like a snapshot into a family's life.
Next up I went to a more "star-studded" film--War, Inc.. John Cusack wrote, produced and starred in the movie, along with Hilary Duff, Marisa Tomei, Sir Ben Kingsley and Dan Akroyd. War, Inc. is a satirical movie about the first war to be completely outsourced to a private company. It could be considered a bit heavy for the times we're in, but it also says a lot about the way war is handled. Get ready for more on this film soon--I interviewed Marisa Tomei and Hilary Duff, and will have all the deets on that for you soon!
