TFF 2013 Opening Night Film ‘Mistaken For Strangers’ Gets the Broadway Treatment

Tom and Matt Berninger help Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson adapt ‘Mistaken For Strangers’ for the stage in this hilarious Funny or Die video.

After I interviewed the president, I was looking for something different.

We’ve always thought Mistaken For Strangers was ripe for the stage, but apparently, we weren’t the only ones! Bored to Death co-stars Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson enlisted Mistaken for Strangers stars Tom and Matt Berninger to help them get the video take-off just right.

Galifianakis and Danson recreate some of the most memorable scenes from the film, including Matt Berninger’s infamous stage-to-crowd walk as Tom trails behind him with the microphone cord. After watching this video, you’ll wish that Mistaken For Strangers: The Play was opening on Broadway for real!

“Her performance requires us to pay a great deal of attention to the detail and implication laid out across her expressive face, but the final result is a nothing less than a vigorously full-bodied creation.” In an ideal world, the amazing Lily Gladstone would have been an Oscar contender for her revelatory, @FilmIndependent-nominated performance in Kelly Reichardt’s exceptional drama CERTAIN WOMEN. Find out why. Link in bio.
John Cassavetes' SHADOWS (1959) — Peep THE TEN COMMANDMENTS on the marquee in the background
As we continue our #BlackHistoryMonth exploration of Tribeca selections helmed by black directors, it's time to turn our attention to a daring and genuinely monumental exercise that was ignored upon its first bow but remains radical and required viewing for anyone who cares about the past, present, and future of movies. In 2005, writer, director, documentarian, and film movement leader William Greaves debuted SYMBIOPSYCHOTAXIPLASM: TAKE TWO AND A HALF, in which the late indie pioneer, with the help of invaluable executive producers Steve Buscemi and Steven Soderbergh, revisited and reconceived his 1968 avant-garde landmark, a cult classic and film school staple that acerbically captured the making of a film within a film within a film. Greaves' update of his experimental, docu-fictional meditation on the warped and knotty act of moviemaking only intensifies this fluid work's status as a bona fide cinematic revolution unto itself.
Like Haile Gerima's HARVEST: 3,000 YEARS, today's #BlackHistoryMonth selection highlights another retrospective screening from a past Tribeca Film Festival. From 1989, Charles Lane's Sidewalk Stories is a silent masterpiece that updates Charlie Chaplin's soulful slapstick for modern times but imparts a heartrending worldview all its own. It tells the story of a homeless New York artist who assumes parental responsibilities for the young daughter of a murdered man, finding humor and humanity in every corner of the city. If you have yet to see this independent gem, seek it out immediately.
“I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.” Raoul Peck’s magnificent new film essay @IAmNotYourNegro dives into the complex legacy of the peerless, fearless writer and social critic James Baldwin, seen here in Istanbul circa 1960. @Eng_Matthew explains why it’s necessary viewing. Link in bio. #BlackLivesMatter
