Robert De Niro waves upon arriving for the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival opening night screening of 'Time Is Illmatic' in New YorkBy Chris Michaud NEW YORK (Reuters) - Music and movies played together even before sound revolutionized film during its infancy, and so it is at the Tribeca Film Festival where the documentary lineup is heavy on musical subjects, from hip hop star Nas to shock rocker Alice Cooper. And while documentaries have traditionally comprised as much as half of Tribeca's scores of offerings, films about musicians Bjork, Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir, James Brown and others have lent this year's festival a decidedly tuneful air. "We never program to an agenda," said Tribeca's director of programming, Genna Terranova.
