Imp Of The Perverse

I would give one billion dollars to sit in on this: Organizers of the

Tribeca Film Festival

, which kicks off today and runs through May 7, have announced the juries that will hand out accolades to everything from full-length narrative features to documentary shorts entered in the fest. The Narrative Short Jurors are, in alphabetical order: Mark Cuban, Laurence Fishburne, Oprah Winfrey's best friend Gayle King, advertising guru Shelly Lazarus, actress Samantha Morton, Lou Reed and Julia Stiles. C'mon. The owner of the Dallas Mavericks and the frontman for the Velvet Underground will be sitting in the same room discussing movies. For hours. Good God, but for the life of me I can't come up with a punch line. My mind is blown.
