    The Tribeca Film Festival has announced the balance of its schedule, including one of Sundance's most controversial films, among others.

    Director Michael Winterbottom's adaptation of the Jim Thompson noir classic "The Killer Inside Me" will be showing at this year's festival. The film's graphic violence sparked outrage among audience members when it was screened in January at Sundance and started rumors that Jessica Alba, one of the film's stars, was chased out of the theater by the sight of herself being brutally beaten by co-star Casey Affleck.

    Among the other additions are "Get Low," starring Robert Duvall as an old coot who wants to throw himself a funeral before he dies, and finds a mortician, Bill Murray, only too happy to help, and "Ondine," a retelling of a German fairy tale from director Neil Jordan and starring Colin Farrell.

    A trio of new documentaries about cultural icons have been added, "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work," "Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage" and "Vidal Sassoon: The Movie."

    For more political fare, there's "My Trip to Al-Qaeda" from Alex Gibney, the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind "Taxi to the Dark Side."

    A complete list of films is available at the festival's website and the box office is open for business.
