    TRIBECA REVIEW | Sexual Innocence: Ashley Horner's "brilliantlove"

    The sexuality in "brilliantlove," in which a couple's private lovemaking photos go public, creates a simultaneously frank and disarmingly innocent experience. An explicit British drama competently directed by Ashley Horner, the movie revolves around Manchester (Liam Browne) and Noon (Nancy Trotter L...

    VOD Review: 'Shawshank' With Teens? Kim Chapiron's 'Dog Pound' Finds Turmoil In Youth Prison

    The opening moments of "Dog Pound" introduce its young subjects in a frenzy of violent acts: Suave 16-year-old Davis (Shane Kippel) gets nabbed by the cops for pushing pills; 15-year-old Angel (Mateo Morales) goes down for assault and auto theft; hot-headed Butch (Adam Butcher) beats up a correction...

    Big Screen | Holofcener and a "Human Centipede" Lead Debuts

    Both among early-in-the-season picks on indieWIRE's summer movie preview, there might not be a more inappropriate double feature than Nicole Holofcener's "Please Give" and Tom Six's "The Human Centipede." One is a light-hearted morality tale about a bunch of inter-connected New Yorkers negotiating t...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Religious Rebels: "Sons of Perdition"

    The Mormon outcasts at the center of "Sons of Perdition," a documentary directed by Tyler Meason and Jennilyn Merten, bring authenticity to a sensationalist hook. The polygamous community of the "Crick," a Fundamentalist Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) enclave run by the dictatorial Warren Jeffs until his ...

    TRIBECA 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 | The Subtext of Longing: Lee Isaac Chung's "Lucky Life"

    During one of many understated scenes in Lee Isaac Chung’s “Lucky Life,” a character expresses the desire for “a chance to slow down a bit more,” and his friend concurs. Such an abstract wish could serve as the tagline for Chung’s meditative, lyrical and yet hauntingly familiar look at the elusive nature of memory among day-to-day experiences. The movie revolves around the weekend getaway of four friends: Jason (Kenyon Adams), Alex (Richard Harvell) and recently married couple Mark (Daniel O’Keefe) and Karen (Megan McKenna). Although Jason is dying of cancer, he seems pensive rather than sad. The rest of the group attempts to follow his lead,...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | High School Conventions: "Beware the Gonzo"

    The time has come for a moratorium on high school comedies. Done to death in the heyday of John Hughes knock-offs and poorly resurrected many times since then, the angst-riddled coming-of-age genre invites replication rather than ingenuity, and rarely yields an enjoyable product. Case in point: "Bew...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | An Off-Key Trainwreck: Olivier Dahan's "My Own Love Song"

    It's no easy task to figure out at what point "My Own Love Song" transitions from a string of basic mediocrities to hilariously awful contrivances. My own theory is that this happens somewhere between the incoherent split-screen car chase and the animated birds. Others may write it off even earlier ...

    TRIBECA REVIEW | Colombian Squalor: "The Two Escobars"

    The history of Colombia's tattered international reputation is not an unexplored field, but Jeff and Michael Zimbalist's Tribeca Film Festival world premiere documentary "The Two Escobars," provides an original strategy for framing it. A study in contrasts, the movie oscillates between two men with ...
