    Tribeca Review: Cute Cats Abound, But 'Lil Bub and Friendz' Is a Missed Opportunity

    If you've been entertained by internet cat videos -- and, let's face it, we all have -- chances are strong that you will find something amusing about "Lil Bub and Friendz."

    Review: Budding and Seasoned Voyeurs Collaborate with Mixed Results in Francois Ozon's 'In the House'

    Francois Ozon's psychological mystery “In the House,” which is adapted from the play by Juan Mayorga, works as an interesting companion piece to Ozon’s 2003 film “Swimming Pool.” Both center on a middle-aged literary curmudgeon who develops a fantastic fixation on a young, enticing and distinctly th...

    Tribeca Review: 'Floating Skyscrapers' Never Dodges The Inevitability Of The Modern Gay Indie Film Tragedy

    Ideally there’d be a way around this, but it appears there is not: if you’re a gay couple in an independent film, things aren’t going to end well for you. The cloud of disaster hangs low over “Floating Skyscrapers,” a Polish drama about two male lovers that begins with the conspicuous, unseen activi...

    Tribeca Review: ‘Almost Christmas’ Is A Mostly Joyless Misfire

    Director Phil Morrison hasn't made a film since his exceptional debut indie, "Junebug," which launched Amy Adams in 2005. Brimming with life, even without the Oscar-nominated and very-worthy firecracker Adams performance, the movie is flush with an idiosyncratic humanity and especially complex and u...

    Tribeca Review: ‘Bluebird’ Is A Well-Observed & Striking Debut About Family, Connectedness & Consequences

    Subtle, nuanced and absorbing, Lance Edmands’ directorial debut “Bluebird” is a remarkable first feature and wise beyond his and its years. Carefully shot, well-observed and featuring terrific performances from an excellent slate of experienced, yet largely unknown actors (aside from the “Mad Men” a...

    OBLIVION

    Truly original science-fiction ideas are few and far between, at least within the realm of Hollywood moviemaking, so "Oblivion" scores points for both its premise and its execution—up to a point.

    Tribeca Review: Safdie Brothers' Poignant, Fascinating 'Lenny Cooke' Not Your Typical Sports Doc

    New York filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie are known for their irreverent urban narratives "The Pleasure of Being Robbed" and "Daddy Longlegs," both of which contain a naturalistic quality that suggests they could work wonders with non-fiction. With "Lenny Cooke," they've done just that: Partly a fou...

    Tribeca Review: 'Mistaken For Strangers' A Rock Doc About Two Very Different Brothers

    In this age of social media and damage control, it’s particularly difficult to make a rock doc. It’s even more difficult if your subject is The National, a successful rock band that counts The Killers and Arcade Fire as their contemporaries, popular enough to sell out major venues worldwide and even...
