Watch Live From New York! - Alternative Versions.
2015 TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL: NBC's "Saturday Night Live" has become an
institution of American television. One line that rings profoundly true
in Bao Nguyen's thoroughly entertaining documentary "Live from New
York!", about the institution of 30 Rock Plaza, is that people don't
speak about what "SNL" means to comedy. Many of us have grown up with
it in different ways. For me, it wasn't the 90's that had Molly Shannon
and it wasn't the 00's that had Will Ferrell and Tina Fey. Discovering
some of their more iconic characters and importance in my later years,
I was first formally introduced to SNL just under a decade ago. That's
with consistent watching and growing to love a die-hard cast that
included Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Andy Samberg, and
more. It's only now that I go back to the earlier seasons to see people
like Cheri Oteri and Horatio Sanz and discovering that their humble
beginnings were just in my back yard.
Nguyen provides the opening of a time capsule that SNL producer and
creator Lorne Michaels would have hoped for in his over-hyped 40th
anniversary celebration that aired in February 2015. Nguyen begins with
the first cast of Saturday Night that included then unknowns, Chevy
Chase, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, and more. They quickly address the
hiatus that Michaels took from the show for five years in the early
1980's. During that time, we get Julia Louis Dreyfus, arguably part of
one of the worst cast and years of the iconic show. Now she sits
comfortably with half a dozen Emmy Awards and is still skyrocketing
with feature films.
Nguyen goes into the struggle for women and their voice on the show.
Through interviews with Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, and others, we get
an honest and raw insight into the ongoing battle for the female voice
on television. To paraphrase a veteran comedian from the film, you know
how you know the struggle for the gender equality is still not yet
because you just asked me that question about it. When the days of
Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and Maya Rudolph come into play, the doors are
open for all types of comedy, from all different perspectives.
The issue of diversity and racism on the show is addressed with a no
filters account from the cast members themselves. From original cast
member Garrett Morris to recent members like Leslie Jones and Kenan
Thompson, the ongoing struggle for diversity and a voice is evident and
well-known, though through interviews, you can see that some writers
don't see it as a top priority.
The theme of the show and the film is captured in the segments about
the September 11th attacks. From the perspectives of former New York
mayor Rudy Guiliani, Michaels himself, and many past writers, they
recount the dark days following the attack on America. The touching
tribute to the fallen heroes, innocent people lost, and the still
seemingly real and open wound in some of the cast and crew during the
time is a tender, beautiful moment.
"Live from New York!" is one of the rare and very specialized
documentaries that touches on a subject so obscure and random like
"Saturday Night Live," and gives it a voice. From the musical guests to
the many controversies that almost swallowed the show whole, "Live from
New York" is an infectious swell of love, humor, and adoration. A
dynamite film to watch at the festival!
