    Pain & Gain

    What burns me up about "Pain & Gain" is that the trailer, and even the excerpts shown on TV, make it look like fun.

    A Voyage Worth Taking: Kon-Tiki

    Thor Heyerdahl made history by traveling nearly 5,000 miles on a balsa-wood raft in 1947. His book about the adventure sold more than 50 million copies worldwide, and his subsequent 1951 documentary earned an Oscar.

    The Reluctant Fundamentalist

    Having made a number of movies dealing with cultural identity, Mira Nair was an obvious choice to direct the screen adaptation of Mohsin Hamid’s critically acclaimed novel "The Reluctant Fundamentalist," even though she is Indian and the film is rooted in Pakistan.

    At Any Price

    It actually hurts to write this review, as I’ve been a booster of Ramin Bahrani’s work from the moment I saw his debut feature "Man Push Cart."

    Tribeca Review: 'The Machine' Is A Fastball Down The Middle For Genre Die-Hards

    Even though science fiction allows for the widest possibility of storytelling, it often seems like there are really only three or four sci-fi stories, and they stopped creating them after the eighties. How else to explain an industry overwhelmed by the amount of low-budget takes on "The Terminator" ...

    Review: Overstuffed 'Love Is All You Need' An Unsatisfying, Predictable Rom-Com From Susanne Bier

    What’s up with those crazy Danish filmmakers and their compulsion to pile it on? The latest from Oscar-winning filmmaker Susanne Bier (“In A Better World”) is like watching a long game of Jenga. As every sub plot, reveal and character… err, caricature that is, gets stacked on top of each other, the ...

    Tribeca Review: Featherweight 'Just A Sigh' A Wayward Romance That Immediately Fades From Memory

    Some of us are floating in the water, waiting for that big wave that we can ride, one that will let us surf to another place where the water’s warmer, less choppy, and in some cases, soaked with less tourist piss (which may or may not be part of the metaphor).

    Tribeca Review: Kiwi Cannibal Comedy 'Fresh Meat' Is A Silly, Tasty Treat

    There’s a certain expectation that comes with attending a horror-comedy with a ridiculously on-the-nose title. And in that respect, “Fresh Meat” delivers on its promise as a deliriously off-the-wall splatterfest with absolutely zero pretension. You could guess that Kiwi director Danny Mulheron was a...

    Review: Godard's 'Le Petit Soldat,' From Geneva, with Angst (TRAILER)

    Set in 1958 and shot in 1960, "Le Petit Soldat" begins the way "Breathless" begins: with a man in a car. But there’s an immediate difference. "Breathless" is relentlessly present-tense, moment-to-moment: car to cop to gun to girl. "Le Petit Soldat," Godard’s fourth feature, doesn’t barrel ahead. ...
