    DOC NYC '11 Review: 'Kumaré' A Morally Questionable Docu-Comedy About Expensive Yoga Gurus

This filmmaker has made a documentary not unlike "Borat" in which he pretends to be a native Indian guru (code name: Kumare), creating his own philosophy and gathering very dedicated followers.

    "Tower Heist" Is a Celebration of How Much Money It Will Make. Here Are Some Alternatives.

    It's harder to imagine a meatier -- and more wasted -- ensemble than what Brett Ratner has at his disposal in "Tower Heist."
