    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Flowers of Evil" Constructs a Love Triangle Where Technology is the Third Wheel

    Although it tells an old story, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are the real stars of the delicate romance "Flowers of Evil." David Dusa's feature-length directorial debut is an intimate portrayal of a cross-cultural romance between a French-Algerian bellhop and the Iranian fugitive he meets in Paris....

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Alex Gibney's "Catching Hell" Puts a Hated Fan in the Spotlight

    Although it contains a whirlwind of talking heads, Alex Gibney's thoughtful baseball documentary "Catching Hell" lacks the one subject who provides its topic: Steven Bartman, the meek Chicago Cubs fan whose ill-fated grab for a foul ball during a pivotal 2003 game arguably played a role in the team'...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Beyond the Black Rainbow" is a Reagan-Era Mindtrip

    Underground art rebels against a standard; "Beyond the Black Rainbow" is an incoherent audiovisual extravaganza for its own sake. The feature-length debut of director Panos Cosmatos, it's a wacky, carefully designed, totally inscrutable science fiction puzzle. With a minimum of plot and consistently...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Tony Kaye's "Detachment": Great Cast, Awful Movie

    Tony Kaye has a lot to say in "Detachment" and all the wrong tools to say it. It's a shrill and didactic melodrama about the pratfalls of the education system, rendered in shockingly amateur terms. However, there here is an element of sheer spectacle in seeing a top-tier cast assembled for such a de...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Bombay Beach" Explores Dreams and Isolation By the Sea

    The beautiful desolation of "Bombay Beach" makes it difficult to describe as a documentary. Alma Har'el's directorial debut takes a nonfiction setting and displays its haunting qualities in poetic terms. The small, impoverished community where the movie is set - buried in the heat of the Colorado de...

    Memo to horror directors: If it's been done before, try not to do it. That's the main takeaway from "Grave Encounters," a highly derivative haunted house effort from first-time filmmakers the Vicious Brothers.

    REVIEW | Non-Fiction Innovation: Clio Barnard's "The Arbor"

    Documentaries often toy with the conventions of non-fiction storytelling to the detriment of their content, but Clio Barnard's innovative "The Arbor" provides a welcome exception to the norm. Tracking the experiences of British playwright Andrea Dunbar and her children, Barnard uses actors to lip-sy...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Gnarr" Explains How Iceland Got Its Comedian Mayor

    In 2009, as Iceland struggled to survive its debilitating economic crisis, local comedian Jón Gnarr came up with an unlikely solution. Launching "The Best Party" initially to satirize the country's ineffectual and power-hungry leaders, Gnarr's farcical campaign to become the mayor of Reykjavik slowl...
