Revivals, often handpicked by Martin Scorsese, used to be the highlight of Tribeca. This year’s Retrospectives program consists of just three films (and two, “Scarface” and “Schindler’s List,” aren’t exactly unknown). But fans of 1990s indies won’t want to miss Alexandre Rockwell’s 1992 Sundance winner, restored from what is said to be the only archival print. A self-deluding filmmaker (Steve Buscemi) falls in with an eccentric, lovable crook (Seymour Cassel) who may finally be his ticket to artistic success.

Directed by Alexandre Rockwell, In The Soup portrays the story of Adolpho (Steve Buscemi), who is writing a screenplay from his crumbling NYC apartment, and falling for the literal girl-next-door. In a desperate attempt to get his screenplay funded, he connects with Joe (Seymour Cassel), a shady high-roller willing to play dirty. After winning the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 1992, the film all but disappeared and only one damaged archival print remained. Through the efforts of Factory 25 and a Kickstarter campaign, the film’s print has been restored in time for its 25th Anniversary.

  Funny, a couple of Japanese FB friends posted Leica M6 that made me curious about my M6. Mine is Leica M6, not Leitz M6. There are three variations available that I have just have learned. I bought this M6 in early 1990’s, and I haven’t used since 2001, it was in a box and …
