Lou Reed Made a Movie

There's good news and bad news about the first film by songwriting great Lou Reed. First the good: His documentary Red Shirley, about his centenarian cousin who fled the Nazis before settling in New York and helping guide the labor movement there, will have its world premiere at a festival next month. The bad news: The festival, Visions du Reel, is in Switzerland. All of which naturally raises the question: Was Reed's film too good or not good enough for Tribeca? What happened here? [Variety]
