The Tribeca Film Festival is in full swing here in New York City, but if you can’t make it up to the Big Apple, you can still see a bunch of new movies via Comcast On Demand right now, and you can be on the cutting edge of exciting new film releases before they’re even premiering here. Take a look at what you have available to watch from Tribeca below.
Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll
If you haven’t heard of British punk rock/new wave sensations Ian Dury & The Blockheads, you’ll be annoyed that you hadn’t once you see this innovative biopic. Andy Serkis stars as the contentious, cantankerous and cacophonous singer/songwriter Dury, a polio-stricken poet with a wretched childhood who has grown into a surly malcontent of legendary bastardry with a strange family life that includes becoming an unfortunate role model for his young son Baxter. It’ll have you humming “Reasons to Be Cheerful” for days to come.
A feel-good and truly funny comedy about a Muslim who finds out he was born a Jew. British comedian Omid Djalili stars as a less-than-devout Mustlim in England whose discovery that he was adopted creates an identity crisis for him, and Richard Schiff is his cantankerous Jewish neighbor who winds up schooling him on the faith of his birth.
Climate of Change
A uniquely optimistic sort of documentary that focuses on those every day people around the globe who are making an impact in the fight against environmental degradation and climate change in their own communities.
A moody post-apocalyptic animated noir about a man who hears voices in his head starting to uncover a conspiracy that revolves around an evil corporation and their mind-controlling business. Featuring the voices of Vincent Gallo, Juliette Lewis, Stellan Skarsgard and the incomparable Udo Kier.
The tale of a young Indian man trying to cross a great desert with a traveling cinema truck, dealing with an antagonistic kid, a mysterious drifter who only wants to go to a fair, and a woman on the run from a dastardly water hoarding criminal.
