Our Tribeca coverage felt like it ended almost as soon as it began, which led me to think that some of our on-the-spot reporting might have flown under the radar of those of you who weren't visiting The Reeler, like, every three hours. Our bad -- sorry. So just in case you missed any of the nifty panel and screening dispatches from opening night, closing night and The Tribeca Blog, we thought it couldn't hurt to place a few links here for your convenience. Because you know life is too precious to miss Zak Penn second-guessing Bryan Singer.

April 26: What on Earth: Tribeca Goes Green for Opener
Highlight: Jon Bon Jovi reinvents "Living on a Prayer" as power-folk protest song -- between "Hallelujah" and "Here Comes the Sun," natch.

April 27: American Soldier Doesn't Choose Sides
Highlight: Reporters take down apolitical filmmaker in first Tribeca casualty.

April 28:
Delpy, Dawson and Co. Bring It Home
Highlight: Rosario Dawson gives away the twist in Descent; men run shrieking from the room.

April 28: Is Today the Day For Jolie?

May 6: Dern, Min and Co. Break Down Fame Game
Highlight: Evidently, Marilyn Monroe once cried on Bruce Dern's shoulder over Greta Garbo.

May 6: The Gates Close out Tribeca
