    TRIBECA REVIEW | Festival Winner "She Monkeys" Puts Sexual Competition in Closeup

    Swedish director Lisa Aschan's "She Monkeys" is a patient study of young female desire.

Viral videos contain uncanny imitatio...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | "Revenge of the Electric Car" is a Happy Ending that Doesn't Ask Too Many Questions

    Has Chris Paine sold out? That question lingers throughout "Revenge of the Electric Car," the director's celebratory follow-up to his mournful 2006 exposé "Who Killed the Electric Car?" The first movie focused on the untimely death of the General Motors EV-1 model, a sleek vehicle that carried the h...

    "She Monkeys," "Attenberg" Among San Francisco International Film Festival Standouts

    The filmmaking voices that are rewarded at the San Francisco International Film Festival are every bit as quirky as its proudly off-center citizenry. This 15-day affair takes the opposite tack to its cross-country counterpart: Where the Tribeca Film Festival is heavy on premieres but contains only t...

    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'...
