    Tribeca Review: ‘Cutie And The Boxer’ Reveals Love Is As Complicated & Unwieldy As A Giant, Fanged Papier-Mâché Motorcycle

    Love is complicated, this much we know is true. But love is even more complicated, as Zachary Heinzerling’s brilliant new documentary “Cutie and the Boxer” illustrates, when the regular mechanics of romance (co-dependency, support, a nearly psychic transference of ideas and emotions) are housed with...

    Tribeca Review: The Unflinching 'Oxyana' Soberly Charts An Insidious Drug Epidemic In West Virginia

    Oceana, a small coal mining town in Wyoming County, West Virginia, is, on the surface, like any other small town in Appalachia. An hour away from almost any major city, and with an approximate population of 1400, it’s small, close-knit and not necessarily very open to outsiders. But quietly simmerin...

    Underrated At the Tribeca Film Festival : 'Almost Christmas'

    The new film from Phil Morrison (the director of Junebug) has not been embraced by most critics at the Tribeca Film Festival (actually, most of them hated it) but I so disagree. Almost Christmas is one of my favorites from this year's festival, a thoroughly fresh dark comedy - more sly and absurd ...

    Tribeca: Eastwood and Aronofsky Talk First Takes and Failing on Your Own Terms at World Premiere of 'Eastwood Directs' (VIDEO)

    In a scene from 1995's "The Bridges of Madison County," Meryl Streep's farmwife gazes over one of the bridges as Clint Eastwood, playing a lanky photographer passing through, catches her off guard with a candid snapshot. He's delighted that he has captured her in a natural moment. One of many sequen...

    Tribeca Review: A Lovely & Considered Humanism Courses Through ‘The Rocket’

    There’s a tricky balance to be found in Australian documentarian Kim Mordaunt’s impressive narrative debut “The Rocket.” Mordaunt, who returns to Laos after exploring the country in his documentary “The Bomb Harvest,” tells a tale that’s both humanistic and soulful, yet political and socially aware....

    Tribeca Review: 'What Richard Did' Is A Stark, Sobering Drama Of Guilt And Regret

    Last week, Matt Singer wrote a solid Criticwire piece on spoilers and film reviews, discussing the right, or lack thereof, of readers complaining about spoilers in reviews. I don't subscribe to the theory of spoilers because films aren't simply a cherry-picked collection of moments: it makes no diff...

    Tribeca Review: 'Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic' Obscures The Genius Of A Comedic Titan

    It's an unenviable task, putting together a documentary about a stand-up comedian. The best ones transcend the form and become storytellers; in the case of "Richard Pryor: Omit The Logic," offering only brief snippets of Pryor's bits is like doing a Michael Jackson doc and only playing a few bars of...

    Tribeca Review: Grisly 'Raze' Wastes The Surprising Presence Of Zoe Bell

    The women-in-prison genre gets a contemporary reworking in the grisly slugfest “Raze.” There’s no sex or nudity in this film, which pairs off a large ensemble of actresses in a series of increasingly violent fistfights to the death, and some audiences might find this a cause for celebration -- Bechd...
