Vaughn, Temple En Route to CMJ

The Namesake: Vince Vaughn leading the charge in his Wild West Comedy Show (Photo: Picturehouse)

By S.T. VanAirsdale

Of course they're no Borat or Cronenberg, to cite the major highlights of the last couple CMJ FilmFests, but the appearances of Vince Vaughn, Julien Temple, Ira Glass and -- wait for it -- Anderson Cooper at this year's festival yields at least some cumulative shock and awe, don't they? The Reeler hears Vaughn will be on hand Oct. 19 following a screening of his oft-delayed doc Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show, in which he barnstorms cross-country with up-and-coming comics, while Temple will drop in for an Oct. 20 preview of his new doc Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten. The latter film screens as part of a Clash-centric triple feature also featuring The Clash: Westway to the World and Rude Boy.

Meanwhile, Glass will moderate a Q&A following MoMA's Oct. 16 opening-night screening of the dysfunctional parent doc Frank & Cindy, and Cooper will drag his dreamy ass to IFC Center on Oct. 19 for a discussion of CNN's grave forthcoming special report Planet in Peril. Don't laugh -- it makes just as much sense as programming Goran Dukic's brilliant Wristcutters: A Love Story (Oct. 18) or Murray Lerner's NYFF alum The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan Live At The Newport Folk Festival 1963-1965 (Oct. 18) or... or... whatever. I'm sure Coop will rock at least as much as the fireworks sure to ensue at the "open-forum debate on the Israeli/Palestinian peace conflict" following the Oct. 17 preview of Jimmy Carter Man From Plains. Or so we hope.

Check out CMJ's Web site for the full line-up and ticket/badge information.

Wristcutters sucks.

Thanks for the wit, Anonymous. I'd like to think I work a little harder here than to provoke a fourth-grade-level reader to schoolyard epithets; can you do any better? For my sake? If I leave a box of crayons behind will you at least sign your name?

Wristcutters:sucking::Cronenberg :___

a) body horror
b) Canada
c) Viggo
d) Jason Statham

(i'm just sayin'. i'll prob. still see it at CMJ along with Vince "GUISE. GUISE, LOOKATME, I'M VINCE" Vaughn.)
