    Tribeca: 'Una Noche' Director Lucy Mulloy Talks The Disappearance Of The Film's Stars Javier Nuñez Florian & Analin de la Rúa de la Torre

    By Friday night, the whispered rumors circling the Tribeca Film Festival weren't which premieres were worth watching or how to get into a Bombay Sapphire supper club. It was far more interesting than that. Two of the three lead Cuban actors in Lucy Mulloy's "Una Noche" went AWOL af...

    TRIBECA REVIEW: With 'Downeast,' Directors Ashley Sabin and David Redmon Continue to Make Industrial Problems Feel Intimate

    Lyricism trumps reportage in documentarians David Redmon and Ashley Sabin's "Downeast," an engrossing look at the politics and interpersonal dramas behind an attempt to open a lobster factory in the quaint town of Gouldsboro, Maine.

    Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival this past weekend, Supporting Characters written by Daniel Schechter and Tarik Lowe and directed by Schechter, is described by the festival’s write up as a “masculine romantic comedy.” After having seen the film, I can understand how tha...

    Tribeca Review: 'While We Were Here' Delivers The Sensuality Of The Sun-Kissed Shores Of Naples

    Harkening back to Italian neo-realism, the romance of Naples is alive in "While We Were Here," the latest film from writer-director Kat Coiro. Considerably more watchable than her pratfall-driven debut "L!fe Happens," the picture is significantly more sober-minded, concerning the...

    Tribeca Film Festival Review: Familiar Thriller 'Replicas' Boasts Strong Leads

    If you’re out in the woods in a mansion, don’t open the door to strangers. If you do, and you happen to be in a movie, prepare to be at the wrong end of a shotgun.

    Tribeca Film Festival Review: Alex Karpovsky's 'Rubberneck' Channels Hitchcock and Chabrol

    Writer/director/actor Alex Karpovsky is a presence out there for the younger indie public – a bit Woody Allen, a bit of a geek from his own generation, with a sinister side as a pathetic, intelligent but volatile loser at love in the low-budget “Rubberneck,” which made its world premiere at the Trib...

    Tribeca Review: Despite Myriad Celebrity Cameos 'Revenge For Jolly!' Is Excruciating

    Kudos to Brian Petsos, a bit actor who has pulled off an Orson Welles-level achievement in not only nabbing a brilliant cast to star in “Revenge For Jolly!” which he wrote, but also having the clout to save the lead role for himself. Welles did this with his talent, vision and status as ...

    Tribeca Review: Abbie Cornish Shines, But The Questionable 'The Girl' Remains Ethically Dubious

    Well-told, well-shot and featuring a strong, but restrained and internalized performance from actress Abbie Cornish, director David Riker's "The Girl" is a mannered and in-the-pocket indie drama that might be a total subdued winner if it weren't for its dubious political ideol...

    Tribeca Review: 'Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal' An Enjoyable If Somewhat Slight Horror-Comedy

    A blunt, no-nonsense title like "Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal" perfectly describes the type of movie you're going to encounter when viewing Boris Rodriguez's first narrative feature -- a weird, darkly comic tale offering little more than an enjoyable experience. While 'Eddie' could've tried a li...

    Tribeca Review: 'Free Samples' Isn't Worth Buying

    For some reason independent movies, especially the current wave of mumble-core with its earthy existentialism and waxy photographic quality, have the reputation of somehow being more “real” or “honest” than movies in the mainstream. Because these smaller movies arrive at some emotional truth more di...
